Daily Quick Links | iPhone App Cupcakes and Being Nice to People

iPhone App Cupcakes :: Scenery kitchen in brown and cream from Scavolini :: operation nice

This is my daily collection of noteworthy stuff that I saw online.

+ As I read the interview with New-Yorker Danielle Bilton on , I was in awe. I am not alone since Danielle won the NYC Cupcake Decorating Championships  & Ignite NYC with her Iphone App Cupcakes. Even though she selected a wonderful concept for a geek event, the craftsmanship was apparent. Via Cupcakes Take the Cake

+ The U-shape is the most efficient kitchen floor plan if it does not run too long. I have a G-shape kitchen. It is perfect for me since I like to spread the work areas depending on the task. My tail of the G is in fact a 270 degree counter. This almost circular counter provides me plenty of usable space and acts as breakfast bar. All that talk was to introduce the new Scenery kitchen system in Cream from Scavolini. Via Trendir

+ Sadly, I got a couple not nice encounters today. So it cheers me up to see a blog dedicated to people nice to everybody. Operation NICE is an initiative of Melissa Morris Ivone, a 28-year old graphic designer from Philadelphia. Mel also writes a personal blog about crafts, shopping and what is happening to her.

+ I discovered Operation NICE when I saw a badge on NicBlog by Nicole Block of Nice Events. If you feel overwhelmed these days, read her Changes for Nic post. She has a lot of energy as she prepares for a little delivery.

+ Look at the pictures of the grand opening party for ink & peat that took place last Saturday. Pam’s store is really cool. Via Housemartin
