Earlier today, Debbie Schramer, the creator (along with her husband) of these delicate fairy houses, was kind enough to comment on one of my posts and leave her website! I am so glad she did, or else I may have never seen these lovely little creations! Aren’t they so cool?! I wish I was tiny enough to live in one! They are amazingly detailed as well. I highly recommend going to her blog and clicking on the pictures she has posted there. They are huge, and do more justice to all the carefully created interiors! (She also has a lot of great photo inspiration on her blog!) I can only imagine the time and effort required to make these pretty homes! I love it!
Thanks for the heads-up Debbie!
Some words from Luren:
The gallery has been converted into a giant loom. It stretches from one wall to the other and spans corner-to-corner. There is no space for you to move without becoming part of this huge apparatus!
The loom itself is really simple, and anyone can be taught to to use it in about 5 minutes.
You are invited to gather together the material of your choice and to contribute to the weaving of this collaborative textile.
A Room-A Loom began as a site-specific weaving experiment by Julia Sherman at workspace, a small project space in East L.A. Materials used thus far in the L.A. loom have included weeds, old clothing, Halloween costumes, computer cables, bubble wrap, plastic bags, John Baldessari’s toilet paper, Sheep Dog fur, raw wool, yarn, pants, jeans, blankets, burlap sacks, palm fronds, pom-poms and more. In mid-June workspace will host an reception to exhibit their final piece.
Copy is the first of several project spaces spanning the country and beyond to undertake A Room – A Loom. Eventually, there will be a group exhibition with all of the weavings from the various participating spaces.
Check out this link for a Google calendar with times that you can come and weave!
Luren and other members of Copy Gallery will also be available at other times – contact email@example.com to make an appointment!

These beautiful illustrations were all created in the early 20th century, and all the artists are Australian. I love them! I wish I could just dive right into one of them! BibliOdyssey made a fabulous post featuring these and many more gorgeous illustrations – very interesting and inspiring! Check it out if you feel like taking a little trip to fantasy-land!
Charlie Kratzer started drawing on his basement walls right in the middle, with a drawing of a painting by Picasso. From there he figured it wouldn’t be too hard to extend the drawings out to the edge of the walls – one thing lead to another, until he had decorated all of his basement walls with his drawings, using 10 dollars worth of Sharpie markers!
