What I've Been Digging Lately

Happy Friday Everyone!! This week seemed to fly by. Maybe it's because I've been excited about the Hubs and I's 6th wedding anniversary coming up this weekend! Yay! We're getting a baby sitter and everything- which is kind of a big deal. :D

What are your plans for the weekend??

So, remember on Monday when I created this Mid Century Modern Art Work

I went through all this trouble downloading an image, Photoshopping it down, ect. Well a few days later look what I find from Curbly.

Augh!! Totally could have used this over the weekend! I have it now so when I'm ready to start my other ones I'm good to go. If you want one of your own all you have to do is either "Like" Curbly's Facebook page (Thats what I did) or sign up the their weekly newsletter.

I also saw this article about Ikea offering free moving boxes to customers

I thought this was a pretty cool move by them- the boxes were original posters that advertised for Ikea. People could come pick them up if they needed them. The boxes had checklists, tips for movers, and best of all discount coupons for Ikea Furniture! Score!

How awesome is Ikea? I think this only happened in Quebec, but if it was successful for them maybe Ikea will continue it else where. You never know!

And I don't know if it's my pregnancy hormones or what but I've been extra inspired by some quotes lately. Here are a few:

"The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do." - Steve Jobs

"Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, some make it happen." Micheal Jordan

"You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them!"  Erin Loechner from Design For Mankind

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!
