My first grader is learning to read — which is an awesome process to observe. I love that he’s excited about reading and is so proud of himself when he gets through a few sentences all on his own. We’ve been reading to him since he was an infant, and it’s fun to start seeing the roles reversed. I put a poll out on my personal Facebook page for an updated library of books for his age, but with the caveat that I’d enjoy them as well. Here are the top picks from my friends and family, with links below to each title. Happy reading!


Top Row: Junie B Jones series / The Notebook of Doom series / Should I Share My Ice Cream? / The Terrible Thing That Happened To Barnaby Brocket

Second Row: Harry Potter series / The Magic Treehouse series / The Great Brain / The Day the Crayons Quit

Third Row: The Children’s Book of Virtues / Flat Stanley / The Cloud Spinner / Mr. Granite is from Another Planet

Fourth Row: Freckle Juice / Stuart’s Cape / Frog and Toad are Friends / Nate the Great

Every designer needs to understand typography. It helps to explain fundamental concepts and ideas in a visual medium of communication. As we all know, each typeface has its own artistic style. What better way to show off each characteristic and unique aspect than through a type specimen. The typefaces below, v, should be a part of everyone’s all-purpose toolkit.


The specimen in and of itself is a work of art and are fun to look at. Garamond, Baskerville, Futura, and Univers span some three centuries of type design history; thus, there is a reason why they have been successful for so long.

Want something a little bit different and creative for fall gift giving? This week’s pin features a new kind of gift wrapping technique. To make this on your own, it’s simple. Just gather different colors of scrapbooking paper and layer them together to wrap your gifts. Cut out paper feathers and tie everything together with string. The palette of a medium gray, coppery brown, black, and bright melon is a fun one to use for fall and looks beautiful together. Your friend, family member, or significant other will feel extra special that you put the time and effort in to make something so unique (don’t worry, we won’t tell them how easy it really was). You are sure to win some artistic points for this.

For a full step-by-step tutorial, check it out here. For more of our pins, check out our page.
