I fell in love with a guy named Tyler, he has been my friend for about five years. Veronica, Tyer, and i were walking down the hallway when tyler said the most outrageous thing; he said that he thought that i thought that he couldn't stop talking about me. I cried and ran from him the rest of the day. the next day i write a note to him telling him that what he said was very rude and i slipped up and accidentaly told him i liked him, and he said the feeling was mutual!! We are STILL going out and it was over 2 years ago!!

met fashion blog

Yesterday, a special exhibition opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art called “blog.mode: addressing fashion” Here’s a bit about the exhibit…
As a living art form, fashion is open to multiple readings. A vibrant reflection of contemporary culture, fashion especially in its most avant-garde expressions affects us through its intense visual impact. blog.mode: addressing fashion is the first in a series of shows designed to promote critical and creative dialogues about fashion. The exhibition presents some forty costumes and accessories dating from the eighteenth century to the present all recent Metropolitan Museum acquisitions and invites visitors to share their reactions online or from a “blogbar” of computer terminals in the exhibition galleries.
check out the blog!

holiday crafts

Over on the small object, there are some really great holiday craft ideas. Two of my favorites are made using recycled fabric scraps. If you do any sewing and are a pack rat, I know you have tons of little scraps you’re saving “just in case”. So here are two awesome ideas to use em up! Check out the stacking fabric trees and chain link garland

all over print

I took the recommendation on love forever and checked out all over print. This blog covers color, design and inspiration of the textile design company. There are some really beautiful inspiring images. I wish some of the entries had more words so you knew what the works in progress and inspirations were related to, but I guess that’s part of the fun. Check it out!

So I promised to introduce you to the amazing designer responsible for the new look of freepeople.com and the Free People blog, aka the Caravan of Curiosities…
His name is Ed. Ed gets Free People, and we had an awesome time working with him. I asked Ed if he wanted to say anything about working with the FP crew, and this is what he said…
“The Free People folks are so great to work with because they embrace the quirky and playful things that others dismiss. The Caravan of Curiosities idea sounds odd to say it out loud, (“Ok, so there is this blue hare that runs through Europe and Tibet and Alaska and Africa, and there’s a moose, and a cow and a monkey and some birds…”) but FP was just like, “Yeah, that sounds fun!” And it was.”
Thank you Ed! Above are some of the working drawings Ed did while creating the new blog design. If you want to check out what else he’s been up to, check out his site, edmullen.com

I kind of miss the way the old blog looked! This one seems a little more juvenile, and a little less feminine.
Barbara -Oct 28, 2007, 4:44PM
