bird cage

Kime Buzzelli posted some pics on her Moldy Doily blog from a block party/art opening they just had at her shop, Show Pony. If you don’t know Kime’s artwork, check out her blog and this entry we featured a while back. Anywho, I loved this pic with the giant bird cage drawing!

She also bought some balloons for the party. They look so pretty and festive, I’m definitely going to remember to get some for my next soirée.

I like the bird cage behind the woman in first pic. It look like a bird cage that I just bought last week for my parrots.

crochet coral reef

The Coral Reef project has displayed in Pittsburgh and Chicago and is currently on display in New York. I had seen a small bit of it in the windows at NYU, and checked out the website for the Institute for Figuring and wasn’t all that impressed with what I saw in person or the images on the site. But then, I saw the pictures posted on Love Forever and now I am excited!
The project is an effort to draw attention to the disappearing wonders of the marine world caused by global warming and the disgusting amounts of trash in the ocean. The crochet technique they used is called Hyperbolic Crochet, based on an algorithmic technique discovered by mathematician Dr. Daina Taimina.
Check out the Institute for Figuring; there is a lot to read about the intentions and process for this exhibition.

Heather at the home office recommends checking out this Philly photographer this week before his show ends! Manuel Dominguez Jr.‘s photography is currently on display at Benna’s Cafe in South Philly. Heather also recommends trying the most delicious coffee and tea beverages she has ever tasted, especially the Open Fire made with soy milk.
Heather bought a print of the photo above! Her favorite part is that they are watching Rock of Love on the TV!
A comment on uwishunu (a Philly happenings blog) claims Manuel is the modern Norman Rockwell, so get there this week to check it out (show ends May 8).

samantha lamb

I am definitely a big fan of Samantha Lamb’s photography, I know many of my fellow crafty bloggers are too. Sam is exhibiting her work in NY with an opening this weekend!
Samantha tells me that prints and coffee table books will be available, there are about 21 framed pieces, and she will be playing great music. Plus, this is a perfect opportunity to check out the In Good Company Workplaces, a space for women entrepreneurs.
If that isn’t enough to entice you, here are some of the photos…

marbled paper

Courtney and Lizzy made some beautiful marbled papers for our “trend walls.” As the designers are developing a trend, they designate a wall in the hallway where they post all kinds of inspirational images, artwork, magazine tears, trims, etc. You’ll have to wait a few months to see what comes of the trend with the marbled colors… The painting sure looks like fun though!
Here are some of the supplies and tips:
Paper was from Pearl Paint
Big white tub was from Ikea
The marbling kit was from Pearl too.
Innovative Marbling Suminagashi Dye Ink Set:
6 colors, in 12 ml. tubes and it comes with instructions!!
The girls put a little baby oil (does not come in the set) in the water too, just to make it more interesting. Wherever the oil is, the paper will remain white.
Check out the comments from an expert marbler for some more tips…

FP President, Meg recently bought a puppy from a lovely young girl in Canada named Sherry. Sherry’s other passion happens to be Gypsy Vanner horses, and their story is pretty neat, so we thought we’d share. Sherry explained to Meg that Gypsy Vanner horses were used by the gypsy people to pull their caravans. They are one of the rarest horses in North America. There are only 2 breeders in all of Ontario but they are more popular in the states. Check out this youtube video Sherry made for some more info…

I have a wonderful Vanner, and I am always happy to see others loving them so much. I'd share photos any time you like, but mine has a real life not a "plush" life like most of these.
