For those of you who don’t know, Tumblr is a fantastically fun place full of food, feminism, fandoms, and kittens!

I hope Jenny Slate catches this post, because I have found all of Marcel the Shell's friends and family. Thanks to artist, graphic designer, and owner for Green Ink Studio, Inka Mathew's teeny tiny personal project, "Tiny PMS Match," she has bestowed us with yet another terribly adorable procrastinating tool. Mathew's project matches miniscule, everyday objects to their Pantone® color equivalences, photographs them with her iPhone, and it is so god damn CUTE.
