it’s TIME…

No joke. The BIG REVEAL is upon us. I am SO SO excited, so I’m going to get straight to the point:

For the past month, I’ve been working with some FASCINATING members of the design community to compile DFM’s FIRST-EVER…


It’s free. It’s downloadable. It’s my gift to you. Keep it, share it, spread the word, or use it as giftwrap. Do what you will, but know that it’s my thanks to you, the bloggers/readers/designers/artists/etc, for inspiring me DAILY.

Special thanks to my flickr friends for ALL of your help!

Email me ASAP at [email protected] if you’d like to be involved in Issue #2— I’ve already started compiling the goods!

Click here to download all twenty pages, chock full of inspiration.

Love to you.
[p.s. I’m going to take a much needed blogger’s break today, but I’ll be back Friday to hear how much you loved the e-zine!] [EDIT: 2/8/08– For those of you that attempted to download the zine yesterday and had trouble, the link is fixed. Download away!!! :)]

  • You´ve done really a great job here, Erin! I´m also going to print this and read it all with much attention. Fantastic idea. : )

  • wow…. erin, that is truly beautiful & inspirational!
    let me add my comment to the barrage of love you’ve received : )

  • Love fest! Thanks so much for sharing. It’s beautiful. I also linked the post on my blog. Muchas Gracias.

  • What an extraordinary labor of love – of design AND of mankind! Look at all these amazing artists/designers (most of whom I wouldn’t have known about otherwise). That first Emerson quote is beautiful. The design and layout are perfect. Every bit is inspiring.

    I’m blown away. Thank you. Thank you.

  • This is awesome. Now I’ve started my own list of inspirations. And dreaming of my inspiration wall.

  • On those days when I feel lost in domestic duties, children and that ground hog day feeling….your blog and your new ezine idea are like oxygen. Breathing life back into me. Thank you.

  • Guess who’s going in my Lazy Sunday Links!

    Truly amazing e-zine, Erin. And yes, you’ve inspired me!

  • This is absolutely amazing.
    I cannot imagine how much work went into this, so I wanted you to know how grateful I am. I just printed it out and can’t wait to curl up on the couch with it.
    It is truly lovely!
    Thanks so much!

  • I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I would love to participate! [ are you scouting for the next issue? ] I cannot wait to get to my office to print this… I think I’ll head that way now!

  • NOW I remember how I found your blog! Your lovely E-zine was featured on Bloesem; I downloaded it, skimmed it and then put it aside “to read later”. Been reading your blog since, but just now remembered to go back and read through this entire thing! AMAZING compilation of inspiration. Lovely job with this, really.

  • This is absolutely great and incredibly inspiring. It made me immediately make time this weekend to dedicate time to updating my space at home and making my cards.

  • wow thanks for sharing all the lovelies you find!!! Can’t wait to see your next issue :)

  • Oh my gosh! I think I am in love!

    A venue for like minded people who love to be inspired.
