…The Sketchbook Project brings art to the people?

The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project is an art experiment where artists from anywhere in the world can sign up to receive a Moleskine Cahier sketchbook, and once they fill it with art related to various themes (ranging from “It will be fun, I swear” and “Jackets, blankets, and sheets” to “I’m sorry I forgot you” and “Things found on restaurant napkins”) they will send it back to the Art House Co-Op who will tour them around the country before finally adding them to the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

Sketchbook Project Examples

The only rule is that the book must be used in some way, and that it must stay within its original dimensions. Everything else is up to the artist, so if you’d like to participate, be sure to sign up on their site by October 31.

…You just need on club card?

Club Card

The club card is a great idea, allowing you to trade marketing data for deals at many stores. The only problem with them is that you have to carry around a few more cards in addition to any credit and bank cards you already carry. The solution is simple: Just One Club Card. This site lets you type in the barcode number form you various cards, and then print out a single card with up to eight club card barcodes on it. The next time you go to use a club card, just find the right barcode, scan it, and you’re on your way. Brilliant!
