There’s one sure-fire way to make mom throw her hands in the air and scream this holiday season… Coasters!

No, not the roller type. Super fun photo-coasters made of cork! Corksters!

They’re the perfect gift for a mom who loves nothing more than seeing your smiling face stare up at her from under a beverage AND keeping water rings off of her coffee table.

Really, your mom HATES those rings.

Photo Project: Before I Die I Want to…


Some people want to travel the world before they die.

Some want to be rich and famous.

And others just want to knit themselves a bodystocking out of albino poodle fur.

What do you want to do before you shuffle off this mortal coil?

Wait, wait, don’t answer yet.

Get a pal to snap a Polaroid as you tell them your dream. Then write your answer on the photo and send it off to the kids who thought up this crazy project.

New pictures go up each month from people all the planet, people just like you who appreciate travel, riches, and the comfort of discarded poodle hair.

The “Before I Die I Want To…” Polaroid Project

p.s. They’re only accepting Polaroids, so what if you’re outta film? Start your own project! with Instax or digital prints. ‘Cause nobody puts you in the corner, pally.

Pictory: The Photo Magazine, Re-imagined


Take one part’s Big Picture, one part This American Life, and one part Laura Brunow Miner. Simmer for 8 months.

The result? Pictory.

Launched last night by the former Editor-in-Chief of JPG Magazine, Pictory is a photo magazine, re-imagined for the web.

The mission: Tell the best stories with photos.

Her formula is simple — anyone can submit a picture and a story, and the best are featured in lush photo essays. The first essay and interview only whet our appetite for what’s to come.

This one’s worth a bookmark. We mean it.

Your Own Page-a-Day Photo Calendars Make Your Photo-a-Day Even More Gorgeous


Oh, sure, a diary (or as the kids call them, “a web-blog”) is a fun way to write about your day. But we demand pictures, and lots of them!

And that’s why we love Shuttercal, the adorable offspring of a calendar, a blog, and a photo album.

Drop one picture per day into a calendar, and over time a portrait of your year emerges: foliage in September, swimming in August, llama husbandry in July. (July was weird.)

Plus! Shuttercal will print your daily images as page-a-day calendars, making it easier than ever to bask in the memories. Ahh, memories … so baskable.
