I just needed to share how much I love Frankie Magazine. It’s an Australian mag for the 20-something crowd, and their blog is really great too. Lots of crafts and pretty things, eco-friendly products, new designers, all that great stuff we like to know about:)
You in NY?? Check out Williamsburg Fashion Weekend. Here’s some info from them:
“Williamsburg Fashion Weekend continues to show the work of designers that have their fingers on the hip and now, with a nod to the past and wide-open eyes on the future. In this, our third season, we’ve assembled a group of eight Brooklyn-based designers who make one-of-a-kind or small-run collections, with an emphasis on fair-trade, eco-friendliness, and artisan techniques that celebrate the handmade and the visionary.”
Check out the website for location info and links to some of the participating designers.
I found James Spicer‘s work on Poppytalk Handmade, and boy am I glad I did! I could look at the pictures he takes for hours! I really love all the work with miniatures, and the colors that seem to predominate are fabulous. It would be nice to find myself in his mini world for a while. You should have a look at his blog too – his series “Today’s Look Through the Viewfinder” is going to keep me coming back.
See James’ shop on Poppytalk to buy prints!
Ashley from New York, NY: I created a wall of graphic, yet ladylike, art with just a quart of black paint. The silhouettes were printed on full-sheet labels and then the black squares were painted around them before removing the labels. The shapes could be changed to suit another room (fruit and vegetable shapes for a kitchen, etc).

These amazing crochet artworks were created by Emily Barletta. I love them and how organic they are! They look like coral to me! In her interview on My Love for You, Emily says she is inspired by internal biological functions, organs, blood, cells, etc… Check out her site for more pictures of her work- she has a cute blog too!
