The Pop Five

July 26, 2013


This week’s installment of my favorites touches on creative fields. Now, get out there and make something this weekend!



I’ve written about designer Marla Henderson here and here, and she just unveiled her gorgeous, new website. She’s such a talented soul and I always enjoy reading about what she’s up to on her inspiring blog section.


I loved waking up to this piece about Katie Crutchfield on Monday morning. The thought of this woman writing and recording an entire album (that one Pitchfork staffer calls the best thing she’d heard in years) over the course of seven days at her family’s lakehouse during a snowstorm gives me chills.

Whenever I feel stuck in my own writing (or life, for that matter), I head outdoors with the dog. Huffington Post published this piece on America’s Best Secret National Parks. Seems I have some traveling to do!

The Atlantic Wire’s flow chart on what kind of reader you are is fantastic! No surprise, I fall into the compulsive category.


I recently stumbled across this adorable site,, and love the combination of subjects—baking and graphic design.
