So, I'm sure you all know by now but in case you missed it, we recently released 8 NEW designs. Some scandalous, some hilarious, some of them are actual cards. Yeah, real cards. Also included is Volume 3 of the Collaborative Card Series with Myles Thatcher's winning caption. It's just too cute for words!

After completing our first Modern Rubbish cards I was so excited I HAD to show someone, so we skyped with my parents to see their reactions. I would hold a drawing up to the camera and watch their faces as they read each one. My mom would tentatively laugh and furrow her brow; I think she thought we were sick or perhaps she was concerned for our sanity. My dad, however, a lover of all things unorthodox, seemed to take a liking to them. Soon after that first showing he e-mailed me his ideas for Modern Rubbish-- he's an inventor so the creative process gets him pretty amped. I ran across it the other day and it gave me a good laugh, and some good ideas.

So I like this song, but I LOVE the video. This is the band Liars performing their song Scissor. Their album was named by NME as one of the top ten albums of 2010.
Spent most of today, sick in bed but it wasn't a total wash, SFB asked if I would be interested in making a holiday gift guide for the SFB blog. I told them, of course, I'm lying in bed with nothing to do and it made me feel less guilty about missing a show of Nutcracker. I had a good time and got to include the Ballerina Series cards in the gift guide.
Check it out! It's inspired holiday gifts for the dancer or balletomane.
