Cute as a Button

I wish I had a sewing room, just so I could plaster one wall with this cute button wallpaper.


I have discovered a magazine that explores design, creativeness, art, fashion and whole lot of awesome things that has drawn me towards buying a copy, I even thought aout subscribing !

Its name is Wallpaper* so follow this link and check it out ;)

I have to say that my favourite mag is still Frankie, and if you've never heard of this magazine, it's straight-shooting, funny, intelligent and inspiring. It is all about individuality - manifested in the editorial perspectives, design values, fashion coverage and a mindset that allows for an absolutely unique point of view and celebrates individuality. Frankie – change is one thing I don’t mind.

Two Of The Same

So I just stumbled upon a site, out of complete accident.. The author of the site happens to have the same first&last name as my own. I was actually ....embarassingly ....googling my own name, to be completely honest, and saw this link:

Of corse I had to find out what it was, ...a site created as a joke with narotic pictures of me, dressed in so much as nothing? an unhappy former lover, posting up comments to fellow males warning them of my over-emotional self? or just another Melissa McArthur who lives somewhere peaceful, with dreams of her own to excell in the creative world.... ?

Unfortunately this website has disclosed all of its details and leaves us only with a simple drawing and beneath it lies one of the most understanding quotes. One that, after reading, makes you feel like a piece of your heart that was lost has been found again. And this time it speaks and says with a warm welcome, 'Things will be amazing one day, you will find that boy who right now you think will never exist. Lightening will strike Mel!'.

So I would like to thank this website, or the me who found a way into the future and produced this website. Thank you Melissa.


As a believer in many things, one of them is blogs. I've been a committed blog slut, i.e entering one blog and falling in love with the blogger & their pages upon pages of posts then from that, opening twenty other links creating paths to even more amazing blogs, and shamelessly never getting ack to any of them !

So here is my cure. Create my own personal blog and link every notable and worthy link that I can possibly find to expand the creativeness and expressions of other like-minded designers. Well also as an attempt to keep my internet browser tab free. So here goes, to my diary of posts!

p.s This is a blog that leans towards the following: design as a whole; typography; graphic design; love; family; markets; the future; boys; friends; photography; life & the unknown (anything on is list that may come up.!..)
