Doodle Duvet Cover

Good morning to all of you,
It's Wednesday morning, last night I studied until 2am in order to finish some design for my School. I wish I could stayed longer in bed this morning. I found this great Doodle Duvet Cover, one of the best duvet cover that comes with 8 washable doodle pens.
So cool, you can draw what ever you want on your cover and your parents won't be mad at you, I think that is a great thing for all the people who have kids.

Pandi Panda

Good morning my lovelies,
Today it is Friday yahooooo :) this morning was a little bit hard to wake up, but now I'm totally fit ready for a great day.
I found a picture of a baby Panda and I have to say that one of my wish is to see a Panda once in my life, I've been in Asia many years ago, but I never had the chance to see a Panda.

I wish you a fantastic day to all of you.

Dinner in the sky

What an amazing idea, I was looking for something special to do around the world and I found this great and exciting way of having dinner up in the sky. It is a unique event meant for anyone who wishes to transform an ordinary meal or meeting into a magical moment that will leave a lasting impression on their guests! Breakfast in the sky, lunch in the sky, cocktails in the sky, meeting in the sky, internet café in the sky… there is no limit to your imagination.

How to make a scratch off lottery ticket?

I found on Artmind this great way of doing your own scratch lottery tickets.
Here is what you need:

cardboard, a print-out of your lottery ticket, glue stick,
sticky back plastic (contact paper), metallic acrylic paint (preferably silver) and washing liquid.

Beforehand you print out a design that you want to be on the scratch off lottery tickets.
If your printer can take thick paper you can print it directly on the cardboard and skip this part. If you do it in two steps, it is nice to get a fun color background paper and glue the design onto the card.

Then you take a piece of sticky back plastic and put it onto the design.

Mix some metallic acrylic paint with washing liquid. Try to use 1 part washing liquid and 2 parts of paint. Mix the substance.

Paint the plastic part on the ticket and let it dry.

Make sure that the picture underneath the paint is hidden. Add another layer if this is not the case.

And then... scratch! :)

New York City in 1910 - David Hess's battle

In 1910 in NYC, the area around Christopher Street and Seventh Avenue was being widened by the city. Over 300 buildings were condemned and razed under Eminent Domain laws, including a 5-story apartment building called The Voorhis belonging to David Hess. Hess fought the city fiercely to save his building but lost, and by 1914, this small triangle was all that was left of his property. Thinking he’d been suitably beaten down, the city asked Hess to voluntarily donate the minuscule triangle for use as part of the public sidewalk – but Hess refused, and had this mosaic installed on July 27, 1922. Though it inevitably became part of the sidewalk anyway, anyone who walked over the triangle couldn’t help but be reminded of Hess’ battle.

Elevator buttons

One thing about being in an elevator with other people is that usually people stop talking once they are in, it is crazy... imagine 8 people not talking to each others for a few minutes with a background music of Mozart, my friends know me, we are like peas in a pot and whenever we are together in the elevator with strangers it makes me giggling, don't ask me why but I don't know the reason. Therefore I found something really cool on internet: Educational elevator buttons, really love this. I wish to have something like it, ahahha what would happen if you work in a building of 70 floors :)

Butterflies ♥

I found this morning on Etsy those lovely butterflies that are going to bright up my day. Please find more butterflies on good job Jacqueline I reallly like what you are creating.

Stamps disapproval

Oki doki my lovelies here it comes... I found out something that could be very useful at work, even if those stamps aren't approving anything but are made specially to disapprove, I have to admit that I found it funny and thought I could share this with you. Imagine adding one of those stamps on an official file at work. Which one would you choose? click on the images for a bigger view.
