Shopping in NY early last year, I was thrilled to discover a bottle of Evian water at a Paul Smith counter - designed by Paul Smith!

And so starts another collection that's just too beautiful to pass up - glass bottles of Evian by some of the world's top designers. Also in the collection is this simply gorgeous one from Issey Miyake, the one and only:

Other designers in the range include Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix.

new year, new stuff

I'm not very big on New Year's resolutions, but I do like to try think of one or two things I'd like to change every year. Not as big as quit smoking (I don't smoke) or lose weight or any of those, but little promises to myself.

Wait - I guess resolutions is exactly what they are.

This year I have one major one I'll share... Be more creative.

This one's actually quite important, as last year my lack of creative outlet may have helped cause (depending on your world medical view) a bit of a medical calamity for me. Now that it's sorted, and I'm passed it, I'm determined not to make the same mistake again. I will be bright, and colourful and crazy and creative.

To this end, I've been searching through some of my favorite crafty blogs, and feel amazingly inspired after today! There's so much i want to try, make, play with. My last project was such fun (if totally experimental) that I'd like to do more in that vein.

Here are just a few I've added to my list:

Felt monsters...

 Throw pillows...

and christmas ornaments

What are you doing this year?

Something new for you for 2011...

You may look at Facebook’s new profile layout and wonder why they bothered, but someone looked at it and saw inspiration…

When Facebook launched their new profile layout, French artist Alexandre Oudin saw it as a creative opportunity. Using Photoshop, and one can only assume a lot of time, Oudin cut himself a profile picture that fit in to all the available spaces – the traditional profile pic as well as the five new “recently tagged” photos. His resultant profile is pretty cool.

Schweppes have taken this idea and turned it in to a nifty Facebook app, the Schweppes Profile App, helping you to get the same affect but without the tedious Photoshop time. It’s quick, simple, sexy and – best of all – isn’t Schweppes branded. The user gets something they enjoy out of the application and Schweppes gains fans for their fanpage that they can communicate with at a future date.

Win win.
