Sorry, I didn’t have time this week to put together the DIY instructions for the hanging, exposed lightbulbs. But I’ll make sure to give it to Grace as soon as it’s done.

Thanks everyone for reading my guest blog posts this week. I hope you had as much fun reading them as I had making them. Thanks again Grace!

    Meg, I really enjoyed your posts this week. Loved the presentation (made my little graphic designer heart go pitter-pat) and your unique view of underdog/mundane items like rubber bands. Thanks for sharing!

  3. KD says:

    Your posts were great this week, thank you! I love the graph paper in the background all week – what is it about graph paper that is so satisfying!?

    I used lobster bands to create accessories to compliment my collection for a fashion show this past spring. You can check it out here:—studio/

    the artist Miloš Tomić loves them, too.

    his work is amazing, especially his stop’motion films …

    I think it’s a “rubber band-aid”… get it?
    I’d love to see who it’s attributed to, though.

  12. awww, you guys are too nice!

    sorry about image #4: looks like the label didn’t publish. it’s a label held by a rubberband (it’s around a a roll of paper) by the hara design institute.

    here’s their site:

    Meg, you’ve now moved in to my top 5 favorite guest bloggers on d*s. :) Appreciate the extra design work you put into the presentation of your posts!! Thanks for showing us simple things used in remarkable ways!

    completely FAB! I designed a series on the greatness of paper which you might like to see, would have to email it though – sorry that sounds so arrogant, but really, it’s strange how related it is :)

    all the best.
