February is a time for birthdays, and what better paper to wrap a gift in than these lovely sheets from esme winter? I am completely in love – the hard part now is just deciding which to choose!

Know a graphic designer? Get them this memory card set for Christmas. It’ll be a guaranteed winner.
If I got a present this Christmas wrapped in one of these lovelies, I wouldn’t actually care what was inside. When you’ve got UFO-flying cats and penguins paired with wobbly jelly, you have me sold.
I’ve never been the one doing the leaving. I’m always the one left behind. But today I’m heading to the airport to begin a two-month adventure, tootling around Europe with a backpack and my SLR. The longest I’ve been away from home is three weeks. And never alone. This is big for me. It’s really scary. But I’m going to see some beautiful things, get inspired by amazing people, and get gloriously fat with delicious Christmas gingerbread. And I hope I can share some of the things I’ve seen with you when I get back home.
There’ll be a few posts coming up while I’m gone, but other than that things will be pretty quiet around these parts. I’ll be back in January with lots of things to share.
Thanks for reading.

Oh gosh, I do love a clever campaign, and this one really takes the cake. Jody Xiong of DDB China (in conjunction with the China Environmental Protection Foundation) thought up this incredible outdoor installation to remind cityfolk of the environmental benefits of walking versus driving. Such a simple idea, and so effective – it was estimated that nearly four million people passed through one of the 132 installations.
