0 Big News! Impossible Project Launches Instant Prints for Phones!

Impossible Project

Word on the street, and rather big news for all photo buffs is that the Impossible Project has launched Instant Print for phones. Working on androids and the iPhone (even mini iPad 2 + iPad), the new device attaches to your phone, and then prints out an Instant Print just like a polaroid! But unlike a polaroid, you can edit your photo using the Impossible Project App so that your photo comes out the way you want it to.  Fun yes?  More info at Impossible Project or at Photojojo!



Also fun. They now have film now for making round polaroids! Visit photojojo for more details!

4 Happy Friday and A Few New Things from IKEA

We leave you this Friday with a few new products coming this April from IKEA that we're rather excited about. Starting with this adorable new pink FALKHÖJDEN desk (above and directly below) which features traditional ornaments and a matching add-on storage shelving unit. Have you noticed all the pastel pinks popping up in furniture lately?

And speaking of pink, how sweet is this KÄRESTA paper collection? Bringing a romantic feeling to gifting, it's created from handmade paper featuring a pretty butterfly theme.

Also a bit smitten with the BRIMNES series dressing table which would make for easy morning routines don't you think? We're all about the clever built-in mirror with hidden storage that helps hide and organize jewellery and make-up.

Lastly, looking forward to checking out their latest design book called, FIND IT! PART 1
which is apparently all about storage featuring inspiration and storage solutions from eight different homes. Must-have!

Hope you have a nice weekend planned!  Happy Friday!

2 DIY Jasmine Kokedama

Contributor post by Emily and Erick of Heidi's Bridge

We don't know about you, but after months of grey landscapes and bitter cold, we long for everything green and verdant. For a reprieve from the bleak weather, we like to visit greenhouses and garden conservatories--the lush, sub-tropical landscapes feel like a mini vacation and cure any lingering winter blues. To channel this experience at home, we created this DIY kokedama made from jasmine, a beautiful trailing plant that blooms this time of year. The beautiful white blooms scent your home with the most intoxicating, tropical fragrance to help you through the last dregs of winter.
