1. Walt Disney World Badgehunting

I love Allan Peters’ Badgehunting blog posts… wherever he goes, he documents the beautiful modern and vintage type lockups that he sees. This time, in Walt Disney World. How can I not post about it when it combines two of my favorite things in the whole world? Type and Disney Parks. It always makes me happy to see people truly appreciate these details that Disney devotes so much time to. See the rest of his post here.

2. How to Conquer 6 Common Business Fears

I love getting emails from Etsy for the sellers. Like Love Love. They are always short and to the point, but so full of great information and advice! And are usually so true to where I am at and what I am feeling. Katy Svehaug emailed out recently with an article titled “How to Conquer 6 Common Business Fears” and the whole time I’m reading I am just nodding and smiling, yes yes yup, exactly! From the fear that sharing your work because it is so personal and close to your heart to being afraid to fail to the more unique, [Not Knowing] What Success Looks Like for You. It’s a great read, take a look here.

3. Not-Another-Bill

What a cool and fun concept! After you pick your interests and subscribe to their site, Not-Another-Bill will send you, via snail mail, a package/letter/parcel from one of their contributors. Now that would be something to look forward to! Read more on their site here… originally found via Brave the Woods Blog.

4. Calligraphy Video by Hej Heidi

I can watch people write in calligraphy for hours on end. Seriously. It’s just beautiful to watch the various techniques. It’s an art form as much as it is “just writing something down.” Thank you Hej Heidi for sharing!! See more on her site here. Found via Pinterest.

5. Plastic Bag Printmaking

This is such a cool idea! Found via Creature Comforts’ Three Things I’m Loving Right Now, what I love most about the technique of plastic bag printmaking is that you have a bit more freedom and if you mess up on the bag, you can start over without ruining the canvas! Second favorite part, is the layers upon layers you can go.
