November 2009 posts

Apartment Therapy is one of my favorite blogs. Their motto is, "saving the world, one room at a time." I read the New York version.

Drawing will close on Friday, November 6th, at 4 pm EST. 2. I recently went to the Museum of Arts and Design to see "Slashed: Paper Under the Knife." I really liked the exhibit. As you might imagine, given the name of the exhibit, it was works of art made from cut paper. This was one of my faves: It's a tunnel book by Andrea... Read more →


Every month, Prima's talented sketch artist Anam Stubbington draws up a beautiful page sketch. The design team is asked to create something based on the sketch and then the challenge is opened to the community. "Let's see what you can do with this fab sketch!
