My Dr. Rocket fabric is in Spoonflower's Rockets challenge of the week. This one had a roundabout process for coming up with the colour scheme. I pored over magazines and Pinterest pages hungry for inspiration. Then, still mildly stuck, I fiddled with it on Photoshop for four hours, while talking on the phone, until I got it right!

Design*Sponge at Home
Design*Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney is a gorgeous tome of decorating information. It includes home profiles, DIY projects, DIY techniques, floral arrangements, and before and after projects. Here's a sneak peek, but I highly recommend that it's worth the full perusal!

Quick Tip: Cleaning Stamps
Silicone stamps are great for their detail, but if they are improperly cleaned their grooves can get permanently clogged with ink and cause their prints to lose their intricacy. Using a toothbrush and mild soap to clean them right after use helps keeps them stain-free.

Daisy Statement Necklace
This triple daisy charm looks as if it came from the 1960s, but I actually bought it at Michaels. I love its glossy enamel-painted finish, gold base, and overall cheer!

If you are a typography enthusiast you will squeal with delight while flipping through Scripts by Steven Heller and Louise Fili. It features photographs of French, British, German, Italian, and American labels, ads, titles, and the like with a calligraphic flair. It is an invaluable resource for many forms of art.
