For Your Creative Palette

We have been told to "dream big" and that "no dream is too small" for most of our lives, or at least I have. I have always been creative and had big dreams but after finding NOTCOT.ORG I realized that I have barely scratched the surface. NOTCOT.ORG is a website that features artwork, ideas, inventions, and interesting architecture all designed by people, just like us, dreaming big and making things happen. This website really inspired me, so I decided to share a view of my favorites:

Standing at your desk was so last year. Check out this  bistro-like table to allow cyclists to stop off for a rest by STORE MUU.
STORE MUU designed this bistro like table for cyclist so that they would not have to worry about the hassle of finding a place to park their bikes while taking a break from riding.

The 'Hi Matic," a new hotel in Paris, France designed by Matalli Crasset. This hotel has no televisions and is designed to 'escape' from all the technology and live simply.

Tobias Friedrich won the overall category of this year's University of Miami's Underwater Photography Contest. Check out the other winners or enter your own images for next year's contest.

Music Beta by Google. Google has launched a free cloud-based music service that allows you to upload music to your personalized online storage locker.
This is new, but also beneficial to you and I. Now that Limewire is gone (not that any of us used that very illegal site) Google came up with an alternative (legal) way to download your favorite music, Music Beta. It is  a free cloud-based music service that allows you to upload music to your personalized online storage locker. Once again, thank you Google for being awesome.

I hope you have been just as inspired as I was by these. There are thousands more at NOTCOT.ORG.

Any dream worth dreaming, is worth the effort to make it come true.
