I’m really excited about this documentary called “Our City Dreams” about 5 female artists in New York. I won’t pretend I can explain it better than this, so here is the description from the Film Forum site:
CHIARA CLEMENTE’S AFFECTING LOVE LETTER TO THE CITY STRINGS TOGETHER THE SELF-TOLD NARRATIVES OF FIVE WOMEN ARTISTS (ages 30 – 80), each of whom has a passion for making art inseparable from her devotion to New York. Swoon, the youngest, exhibits cut-outs directly on city walls and subways, and exudes idealism and energy while carrying a two by four the way some women would a briefcase. Cairoborn Ghada Amer mixes media — embroidering with painting — to confront sexual taboos that cross cultural boundaries. After experiencing The New York Dolls in San Francisco, Kiki Smith realized she needed the energy of the big city to create her wildly influential paintings and sculptures; Marina Abramovic, originally of Belgrade, is a performance art pioneer who often uses her own body as a canvas. And Nancy Spero returned from Paris with artist-husband Leon Golub in 1964, to meld art and activism during the Vietnam War and become, in her own words, “a woman warrior.” Ronnie Scheib in Variety writes that the film is “exquisitely crafted” and “ranks as a work of art itself.”
There’s an exclusive clip on The Moment blog, and you might recognize one of the artists, Swoon, from a post on the free people blog a while back!

Hooray for Pattra! She made the absolutely adorable little shirt that Trixie is wearing below! You may remember Pattra from previous posts, as she is a grower of Shitake mushrooms, and a creator of things, like this cute ring, Free People wovens, and of course, awesome dog shirts! Thank you Pattra! You really made my day, and Trixie’s day especially!

I frequent Elsa Mora‘s blog – I usually check it every day – so I already know that whenever she makes something, it’s going to be gorgeous. Her papercuts are carefully indexed in her papercut blog, which is a good hour of browsing fun at least, and her drawings and sculptures are so talented and inspiring! She has a lot of heart. Still, I was just blown away when I checked in today and saw her latest set of pins. They are so tiny, and so textured and intricate, and just so darn cute- I love them!
See more of Elsita’s fantastic artworks here and here, and you can visit her Etsy shop here!

plastic life

I am obsessed with the Flickr set Plastic Life by Vincent Bousserez! There is just something so interesting about these photographs! They look half-real to me, like the little people are nearly alive. What do you think?
Thank you Yatzer, for showing me this set!

Austin photographer Lorri Hunnycut does similar photos! I was lucky enough to trade her for a couple a few years ago. 'Martini family Reunion' is my fave. Love Vincent's stamp.

What do you think of these fabric feathers that Sian Keegan makes? I’m really digging them! I love that they are made of scraps and sewn on pages!

skeleton boy


I really enjoyed this music video by Friendly Fires for their song Skeleton Boy, which is going to be on their new album coming out in a few weeks. It’s a happy little song and I love the snowy stuff floating all around and turning them into skeletons! There’s a higher quality version on YouTube if you click through, also.

felt heart pins

How cute are these little puffy felt heart pins?! There’s a tutorial on Purl Bee, and the step by step photos are just as pretty as the project itself. I want to make a million of them!

Just a "Punny" thought: this post should be named "Heart Felt Pins" ;)
Flower of Life -Feb 08, 2009, 1:42PM
the old safety pin through the heart trick does it every time.

Remember the cute Jindo puppy that visited our office the other day? I just got a hold of these shots from when she visited the web studio that same day! She and Jenny posed together, and the pictures are so so cute! I had to share!

You’ve met a lot of the Free People Girls here at the home office – well get ready to meet the Free People Guys! They are very sweet, and a bit camera-shy, but we managed to catch them just long enough to introduce them to you! Enjoy!

cassette tape wallet

I know I already featured some very cool wallets earlier this week, but these cassette tape wallets were just too cool to pass up! It’s such a smart idea, and the wallets are so visually appealing! Still, I can’t help but think to myself, Are cassette tapes really so obsolete? Already? I still have so many cassettes from when I was a kid! Get ready for CD wallets, you know they’ll come eventually!
At any rate, the wallets are totally rad. See this page at DesignBoom for more.
