Hi Grace,
Great selections.

You have 2 Number 5’s
and 2 Number 11’s. You have the person’s name but it could cause confusion.

great selections… but i’m sold by those cat things. and look at those cats sleeping on each other! i’m a sucker for cats.


What a creative twist by Sharon–for the cat lover who is willing to turn pet comfort into wall design. Not only is this “thinking outside the box” but it is recreating the box…


I like the good fragmentary ideas of Levy…and the intelligent info-pack of takahashi..


I really hope Sharon gets a manufacturer for ‘Habicat’, it is exactly what my cat and I need.


There’s a lot of beautiful work here, but I admit, I had to vote for my fellow Carnegie Mellon-ite! I love her clean simple style and hand-crafted touch.

Sharon has a really great range of ideas- all so distinct and unique. Her creativity has no limits :)


Sharon’s stuff rocks. I would buy the cabitat in a heartbeat.


I see Reina and Starbucks in partnership. Too few Z’s among high schoolers – raise awareness of this wide-spread, but little publicized problem, and help sell coffee with an eye-catching design at the same time!

Good website! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
