A friend recently baked her husband an emoji cake, and I thought it was the best thing ever--way sweeter (literally) and a million times more meaningful than those tiny text icons. Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally in favor of the latest tech tool that makes life a little easier, but I’m also all about going analog every once in a while. Multitasking products have had their place in the sun, and it's time for the slower, simpler things to come out of the darkness.
I. Skip the apology texts: one artist's pom-pom apomogies speak the truth, in the cutest way possible.
II. Practice your handwriting and take your to-do list offline with the Bullet journal.
III. Turn those daydreams into reality. The subtitle of this book says it all: How to use the phases of the moon to get what you want. I'm into it.
V. Master the meditative art of macrame: sign up to make a plant hanger with us onSaturday, 2/20 at Church & Co with Emily Katz.
