Another Giveaway!

Hey friends!

Head over to igoYOUgo to enter to win one of my atlas garlands!



It's finally here! Do you remember when I told you about this cool project I was working on WAY back here? And when I hinted at it again back here? Well the finished version is finally here. I was commissioned by a large camp to build the set for this video which goes along with their high school summer program. The Beard designed it, and helped me build a few of the pieces. He built the "sun". I built most of the rest. All the writing you see is mine also. Two disclaimers: First, we didn't choose the music. As a matter of personal taste, we don't think it's quite right. Second, feel free to make it full screen. The video looks better bigger. Without any further ado:

So what do you think?

Crappy Snappys /// Misc.

Hey again,

First of all, check out my guest post over on Wild Olive! It's my retelling of a favorite story from my childhood :)

I wanted to share some photos from the Redlands Bowl last night. We had a delicious picnic dinner and got to see some supremely talented children musicians. Our favorite was the little boy who played bagpipes. It was seriously the best bagpipe performance we've seen {and yes, we have actually seen quite a number of them}.

For those of you who haven't noticed there is a new button over here >>> in the "topics" category called "The Bird Luna". It's a link to a flickr set just for Luna Bird if you want to see some adorable photos of my little lemon drop. BTW, he started saying, "I love you" this week! BEST EVER!!

I also wanted to show you guys a water color The Beard did for a project at work. It's GORGEOUS. You can't really tell from the photo but it's 18"x24" and I get to keep it! Yay! I love it when I get to keep his work ;)

Next, if you haven't visited 95 Days of Summer, Rachell and I's collaboration, you should definitely do so... immediately. There is a button for that in the right hand column also :)

And last, if you haven't entered the giveaway for three of Mollie's patterns from her Wild Olive Shop, you should definitely do that immediately also.

That's all for now folks!

Featured Artist{s}::: Sarah Applebaum + Juliana Santacruz Herrera

Good Morning Art-Appreciators-In-The-Making!

Today's artists are maybe the most colorful we've seen yet! How exciting :)

Sarah Applebaum is a San Fransisco based artist. She creates colorful sculptures and installations using yarn and many other everyday items. I think you guys will REALLY enjoy her work :) Oh and you can visit her blog HERE.


Next we have Juliana Santacruz Herrera who lives and works in Paris, France. She takes long strips of dyed fabric, braids them together then coils them into potholes in the ground creating a kind of filler. Genius! And colorful!


Whoa. Totally psychedelic! I hope you all enjoyed that colorful trip!

Happy Summer Everyone!
