top 5 creative tumblrs

by lizzie & isaiah on January 11, 2012 · 6 comments

It took me a while to find a few Tumblrs that I loved looking at every day. When Kathleen (The Mirthmobile) shared Dream Cats on her blog, I was determined to find Tumblogs that screamed to me.

If you can get over the lack of image crediting, there is inspiration for the taking on Tumblr.

From my reader to yours, I give you my five favorite Tumblogs.

Le Litter Box

If you like cats, animated GIFs and a meow mix of awesome inspiration, Le Litter Box is the Tumblog for you. Meg and Caroline find the inspiration you wish you found first.

CSA Flat File

Whether you’re a designer or not, print design inspiration from the CSA archives is sure to spark some form of inspiration in you. CSA Flat File is sponsored by the French Paper Co. and curated with extreme prejudice.

§OFÂ KÏNG

Sofa King (as in SoFuckingCool) is a mish-mash of inspiration, badassedness and things will have you going, “Ohhh, I remember that.” One by one, Sofa King is defiling pop culture from my childhood in the most delightful way.

Love Your Chaos

Sarah has an awesome sense of what puts a smile on your face contrasted with what will mean something to you or open your eyes to something new. Love Your Chaos has that “can’t-put-my-finger-on-it,” but I love it element I need from all of the Tumblogs I follow.

Soviet Postcards

Since my trip to Russia, I have been obsessed with Russian history, design and culture. Soviet Postcards and the owner’s other Tumblog Back to the USSR give me my daily source of Russian inspiration and I can’t get enough.

So tell me. I’m dying to know. What Tumblrs do you follow?

wedding cakes you shouldn’t eat

by lizzie & isaiah on January 10, 2012 · 27 comments

I’m not usually a fan of the wedding cake. I’ve never enjoyed a single slice of wedding cake. We were thinking of doing a dessert bar with a hodgepodge of the best desserts.

Because dessert is nothing to fuck around with.

But something about these cakes are drawing me to reconsider our vendetta against the wedding cake.

My car is in the shop. It’s really cold. I didn’t have a heater for the last three weeks. I swear I have felt like this all week. I’ve been in a perpetual state of “I need a cigarette” and it shows. Here’s to a better week than the last!

Regardless of whether you love hip-hop culture as much as we do (we did name our cats Biggie & Tupac) or not, you’ll love playing around with The Rap Board. We found it on Quipsologies.
