my weekend

With all my friends out of town for the holidays, I've been left to entertain myself. Have done a lot of walking around, taking care of year end loose ends (still doing that), and fiddling with my new iphone (Thanks mom, dad, and brother!).

Walking around the West Village, found this amazing store full of mid-century ceramics (and some furniture). They have a blog too.

What the what!?

Yes, I know this is a lame post after a week of absence. But really... its worth it.
If you're looking for a laugh, this post is just for you.

Check out White Lightning. Pretty hilarious blog.

Andy Samberg is brilliant.

Elfin' around

In preparation for the holidays, I've been elfin' around. (haha) But elfin' around in a productive way. Worked up my holiday card, here are some shots of the "production of the photoshoot."

A Polaroid...

And the final card....

I'm also making my gifts, peppermint bark! numnumnum

Also, as a custom order, I'm made a couple of these holiday cards for someone. So last night and tonight, I've been making waves with polar bears. (In addition to rewiring my Bernina sewing machine... yikes! but it works now!!!)

more ways to waste time...

Studio Number One has just started a blog. Its surely to have you sitting in front of your computer more than you need to. Simpleasures, enjoy.

Los Angeles, I'm yours.

Apartment Therapy recently did a view into Seonna Hong's home. At times like this, I wish I lived back in L.A. or somewhere with space. Click here to view her beautiful home and her collection of artwork.

Geek chic

Helped Gilbert Ford paint a wintery wonderland, photo backdrop. Its to be used for a "biblio ball" by a group of New York Librarians and other bookish types called the Desk Set.

Some of Gilbert's other snazzy illustrations.

Having a viable outlet to create your own fabrics can be inspiring.
Spoonflower is based out of North Carolina and there is no minimum order and only $18 per yard!

Maybe you too can create something as wonderful as Steve did (although this isn't through Spoonflower, inspiring enough to make me want to make my own).
