Ok good thing I posted that fight flow chart earlier and got something in there for the guys today, because now I absolutely cannot resist posting these NPR Valentine’s. (Not to say guys can’t love Valentine’s too!)
These make my NPR-loving heart flutter. I love that there’s even a Car Talk-themed one!
Download and then email, print, post to facebook, or whatever you want here.
Last year, one of my very favorite Valentine’s things I came across were the e-cards from Kate Spade, which are designed by a handful of the Kate Spade team’s favorite graphic designers, and I was so excited to see that this year’s cards came out today!
They all have a wonderful handmade and/or cheeky slant to them and are a far cry from the cheesy e-greetings you may be recalling from 1999 when people first got into the idea of e-cards. Click here to send your own e-Valentine’s!
Here are a few of my favorites this year…
Valentine’s at top are by Julia Rothman and Alice Lam.
Here is the description from the Paul Smith:
If you believe in love, but find it difficult to explain – this is for you.
Rob Ryan has been cutting pictures out of paper for many years. He has exhibited all over the world, and recently collaborated with Paul Smith
This book is a limited edition of 500. It contains an exclusive signed and numbered Rob Ryan screen print presented in a gift envelope.
‘An enchanting, rare book that is a pure delight from beginning to end’
[PS- If you started reading this blog right before Valentine's Day, you probably thought I was posting a lot of lovey stuff just because of the holiday. Well, as it turns out, I have a general obsession with all creative ways of expressing love, all year round... things I call sentimentia... creative bits of sentiment.. hope you enjoy it too!]
And Augusta was excited about it!!
We woke up this morning and ate Jelly Beans, applied her heart tattoo, picked out her outfit, and had a dance party …all before breakfast.
As if that weren’t enough to make my Valentine’s Day, it was made even more wonderful by a surprise apartment-cleaning and cupcakes from Kyle…
Part II: The Food Edition
LOVED this cute idea from Eating is Art– she decortated this box and filled it with things she loved about her husband and things he loves. (Recipes included in the link too.)
For the non-sweet-toothers*, a cheese and fruit plate with calimyra figs. Did you know they look like hearts when cut length-ways? Click the jump for more edible treats…
I don’t know how you manage to cut a heart out of the middle of a marshmallow, but it’s a great idea.
Like a rice krispie treat but with cheerios?
(Yes I know I JUST posted a poster with this phrase, but helloww, it’s hilarious, and I liked this print too. Is this going to become the next “Keep Calm & Carry On” (the last print to become ubiquitous in the design blog world) ?)
