Screen Shot 2013-03-24 at 10.22.54 AM

What took so long?

This is my favorite new product of 2013 — it's not even close.

Reminds me of those motorcycles with outriders, only way more fun.

From the website:


Dog Walking Aid for Bicycles

Walk your dog safely while you bicycle.

Both of you can now exercise at the same time.

20"-long plastic arm with 8"-long nylon web leash.

This unique bike attachment keeps your dog at a safe distance from the wheel and spokes.

Flexible, durable, and waterproof arm installs easily, rotates up for storage, and can be quickly disconnected.

Made in U.S.A.

$39.99 (dog and bicycle not included. I wonder if this would work with Gray Cat.... How epic would THAT be on YouTube?).

Underwater Reefs and Landscapes — The paper art of Amy Eisenfeld Genser


From Colossal :


"Connecticut-based artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser recently completed a new series of coral reefs that she painstakingly recreates using rolled bits of paper and acrylic paint."


"Ahead of her upcoming exhibition at the Architectural Digest Home Show, Genser sat down with All Things Paper for a brief interview."


An excerpt on her process:



"These days I usually work with Thai Unryu [mulberry paper], but I have hundreds of papers in my studio from all around the world."


"I treat the paper almost as a pigment, layering colors one on top of the other to create different colors. My pieces are about a foot wide... I roll one layer on top of the other in all different thicknesses."


"I seal the roll with acid-free, archival glue stick, and then cut the long piece into sections with scissors or pruning shears. I have pruning shears of all different sizes to accommodate different widths."
