DIY Easter Egg Party with Sugar and Charm
DIY Easter Egg Party? Yes!

When it comes to DIY we always ask Eden from Sugar and Charm, this year’s Easter celebration is filled by bright watercolor eggs done by a bunch of cuties.




DIY Easter Egg Party

Eden planned this party for her tiny guests and had lots of fun, from bunny shaped PB&J sandwich to piña colada for the grown ups.  20160308-IMG_0662

Design Double Take

Oh typography!

Everyday objects and nature have been used multitudes of times in art pieces, but we have stumbled upon installations that use them in a what that caught our attention- with ingenuity and typography! These found objects, natural elements, and commonplace items are transformed into typographical works of art. The impressive instillations were created by the talented artist and set designer Nicola Yeoman.

Nicola is a master of set design for editorial and advertising campaigns so her typography are just one of her stunning accomplishments. Stacked chairs pile upon one another to micmic a D, with focus on perspective and negative space. Flowing fabric is delicately formed into the iconic New York Times logo, creating an ethereal and  dreamy image. Type never looked so cool!

It’s cookie time

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs
