1. Happy Tapper’s iPhone application Gratitude Journal has helped adjust my attitude in the past week. It allows you to jot down all the things you are grateful for that day, rate the day, and add a picture. It really is true that even if you’re having the crappiest day ever, if you recognize the good things about it, you automatically feel loads better. The app provides a daily inspirational quote after you’re finished with your entry as well as passcode protection. Definitely worth the $.99. (via Decor8)

2. I had no idea how many varieties of packaging tape there are out there until I came across Twig & Thistle’s recent post. What a great idea for sprucing up a boring package you have to send in the mail.

3. How on earth did I not know about the “online PDF art + design + photography magazine that uncovers emerging artists from around the world” that is blanket until today? I have no idea, but I’m psyched I have even if they are already on issue 15. What an inspirational gem! Blanket is shifting from a free downloadable online publication to one that will be requesting a small fee ($2 AUD) as of their next issue, but I think it’s worth it. I’m only halfway through the current issue and I’m already hooked. (via Decor8)

4. File this one away in the “why didn’t I think of that” drawer. Molly Mutt sells affordable and eco-conscious dog beds that are, get this, filled with YOUR stuff (i.e., old clothes, towels, etc.). You simply stuff your old clothing or what have you, into the “stuff sack” and then put on the duvet cover. If it gets dirty, you can throw all the pieces into the wash. I love these beds because they’re not only smart, but they come in great patterns. Dog beds are usually so boring (Beck’s is this awful tan velour; it was the least offensive, semi-coordinating color I could find in the bunch), but these would definitely fit into the abodes of decor-conscious individuals.

5. WOW. This is unreal! It’s just what it looks like…this piano is covered in hand-made crochet work. Artist Joana Vasconcelos has blown my mind with her work, entitled Piano Dentelle. You can see more detailed imagery of this on her site. Can I please have this in my living room? Please? (via Decor8)
