1. Been Everywhere I am sure you've heard the Johnny Cash Song, "I've Been Everywhere," but have you heard of The Everywhere Project? In “the Everywhere Project” a select group of designers and illustrators are invited to create luggage labels, each representing one of the 92 locations that appear in the American version of the song. Each artist has the oportunity to share their personal take on a place they’ve been, have connections with, or a place they only recently learned about. Since seeing this project on designworklife, I have subscribed to their blog and love seeing the variety of colorful illustrations come through each day. See more here, how many have you been? 2. Microsite by Soleil Noir Similar to last week's Evernotes Every's feature of Frank Chimero’s new site, this microsite by Soleil Noir also has an incredible effect when you scroll through the site. I was hooked on the illustrations alone, but then once I visited the site I was blown away. Give it a try here. Found via Looks Like Good Design. 3. Stark Skincare After studying package design, I love to see the various ways products differentiate their label compared to the rest of their line. I love how Poly used color,

I really wanted to stick to an Old Testament topic last week, but this week I want to talk about Matthew's account of Jesus walking on water even though the week only covered the gospels of Mark, Luke and John. The reason I am using Matthew's version is because of these words by Jesus: “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” In context, Jesus had just fed the 5,000 with only only five loaves and two fish. He sent the disciples out in their boat while he stayed on shore to prayer. A great storm came and the disciples became very afraid. During the night, Jesus walked out to them and Peter asked Him if he could walk out and join Him on the water. When Peter started walking he became scared and started to sink and called out to Jesus, “Lord, save me!” Jesus of course stretched out his arm and said, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” While reading this, I have always thought Peter was so silly for wanting first wanting to join Jesus on the sea during a storm but then to immediately lose confidence in this and start to drown himself. But really,

Thank you so much Ebony for taking the above photo of us girls at Jess' baby shower last weekend! I asked Jess to send it to me and when she did I just couldn't stop looking at it and thinking about this moment in our lives. These are the moments that make life so complete. While surrounded by friends and celebrating these new babies about to be born, I just can't help but feel like I am about to burst with excitement! I just look at this picture and think that this is a moment frozen in time, a moment before Jess becomes a mom and the new life of motherhood truly begins. A moment before Eli becomes a big brother and Jamie is a mother of two. ((Not sure if I have said this enough, I just can't wait to meet baby Owen and baby Grayson!)) Plus, this is a moment before Lauren becomes a Mrs. and Caitlin becomes a college graduate! This is the type of photo that we'll look back on when we're older and say "Remember when

Reading Jonah, I felt I had a new pair of eyes. I hadn't noticed a lot of this story before. I recognized a lot of Jonah's characteristics in myself. I laughed yet identified with Jonah as he ran away from the Lord's calling to preach in chapter 1. And then I really identified with him when his world seemed to be falling apart around him, not only affecting him but the crew and those around him. When Jonah was brought to knees in prayer in the belly of the fish, he prayed such a heartfelt prayer full of repentance and promise: 7 As my life was slipping away, I remembered the LORD. And my earnest prayer went out to you in your holy Temple. 8 Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies. 9 But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows. For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.” What I love the most about the book of Jonah though is that when he prophesied to the city of Ninevah, the people listened. They repented. They sought God and He relented and had compassion on the city. What if Jonah never prophesied to Ninevah? What if

1. Magpie Paperworks Font Collection Ever since I was a child I was obsessed with fonts. My mom and I would always point out fonts we recognized to each other throughout our days running errands. Have I mentioned that I have always been such cool kid?! Anyway, to sum up, I love fonts! And I really love this new collection from Magpie Paperworks! And it's only their debut collection so I can't wait to see what else they come up with! More of the collection can be found here. 2. Deep Festival by Puchu Gotta love the attention to detail in this infographic-like designs by Puchu. What a creative take on a show poster to better visualize the schedule of performances. Found via the Graphic Exchange. 3. A Year of Sun with Mr. Persol I just adore this commercial! The illustration with its retro-style contrasts with the art of animation and that's what I love so much. If you saw a still of this commercial, you would never image it was animated. I seriously need to learn to draw—properly! Found via Veerle. 4. Pantone Tarts Seriously? So adorable and tasty! More Pantone Tarts can be found at Anthology Magazine. 5. Sherlock Holmes The Sherlock Holmes series can easily be
