Bits & Pieces: Vassi Slavova

1. Bicycles are always fun, but something about approaching spring always draws me to pastel cruisers and bright townies more than usual. Milwaukee based illustrator Vassi Slavova‘s retro inspired posters perfectly capture the spring and summer elements cycling holds for me–the Bike Chick poster shown below seems especially appropriate for the first days of spring, and how can red-white-and-blue circus-style typography not scream July? Also available through Vassi’s Etsy shop are various city, state, and country maps, which come with a customization option and adorable vintage-with-a-modern-twist styling.

3. I really haven’t been good about doing it myself lately–a perfect storm of vacation, mild illness, and lack of any appealing crafting materials mean I’ve been spending more time browsing project ideas online than actually making anything. That might change if I find a reason to make these confetti-filled eggs sometime soon. While I’m a little confused by the idea of packing an egg shell with fruity pebbles (why not just colored confetti?), smashing a glittery surprise over my friends’ heads couldn’t look more fun! I wonder how long it took the girls in the photo to wash away all that gold glitter.
