There is something truly magical when a person discovers their life-long passion at a young age.

It’s March 14… 3/14… whatever way you slice it, it’s Pie Day and Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s birthday! So you’ll have to forgive us but we’ll take any excuse to have pie! If you’re looking for another excuse to eat pie (like us) National Pie day is January 23rd, so we’ll be sure to mark our calendars to eat pie on that day as

It’s Audrey, darling! What a wonderful human being, Audrey is a genius. Audrey Hepburn is the epitome kindness, charm, talent, and style. What’s not to love about her? Her life was thoughtful, her roles were brilliant, and as evidenced by humanitarian efforts, it is apparent, she was a very caring woman. Audrey is a genius – not only for the beauty we see on the outside but we know that outer beauty shines so brightly because of what was on the inside.

Meet Equiano

Meet the Genius behind our Genius Series print Olaudah Equiano, a man of bravery, courage, and strength. When we added Equiano to the Genius Series we learned about a man who endured and persevered until he finally reclaimed his freedom. He later wrote his autobiography, recounting his imprisonment and revealing the horrors of slavery to the world. His first name, Olaudah, means good fortune and symbolizes one who is well-spoken, his writing is a testament to his name, profoundly articulate and full of deep wisdom. In honor of Black History Month, Equiano is this week’s Truly Genius Tuesday featured genius. Where’d he come

Truly Genius Tuesday has returned! This week, we’re celebrating Sierpinski’s Genius Series birthday! This geometric print, honoring Waclaw Sierpinski, joined our Genius Series on January 27, 2016. What makes Sierpinski so genius? In addition to this fun cloth diaper print, the Sierpinski Triangle (or Tetrahedron) was also named after Waclaw Sierpinski, and that’s not all! His namesakes also include: A street in Warsaw, where he was a professor at the University of Warsaw for over 40 years. The Sierpinski Carpet – a plane fractal, the technique of subdividing a shape into smaller copies of itself, removing one or more copies, and continuing recursively can be extended
