Hark I hear the weekend call!
First order of the day- scrapbook!
I will put on "The Office" and watch season 8 all over again while drinking Brooklyn Lager.
I live literally 2 blocks from Brooklyn Brewery but have never gone to one of their famous tastings.
I am alone for the first time in months right now so I have to do all the things before Grandma brings the little one back.
Here are the things I found inspiring this week:
|Brooklyn hand embroidered pillow cover on a FABULOUS chevron covered chair.|
So there's a link right there for the museum shop.
It's 149 dollars- too rich for my blood but gorgeous right?
|5 Points in Long Island City may be getting sold and leveled to|
make way for more condos. If you're in New York take the 7 train and
swing by- it's worth it.
|These gorgeous machine stitched pillows are also|
available but not on website. Sorry I didn't get the artist's name.
|The Elizabeth Sackler Wing at the Brooklyn Museum has|
an exhibit on quilting. It is my assertion that if quilts are
feminist statements of art so are scrapbook pages.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
|Awesome diamond shapes at Urban Outfitters made with plywood|
and light strips.
|The El Anatsui exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum ws smaller than I expected but amazing.|
He's got all kinds of interesting and theoretical things to say about why he makes giant
rusty metal or mixed media quilts. I just think they're awesome.
|A new park has opened up next to East River State Park.|
It's so pretty! And you can also play soccer in the new fields.
|And I got to meet Natalie K. |
Who has a FAB new line of stencils with Stencil Girl Products. Woot!!!!
AAAAnd a sneak peek of two projects that will go up on the Scrap FX blog this sunday at 7pm (Monday 9am Aussie time.)
Have a GREAT weekend!
