Happy heart day for all you lovers out there! The office has been a sea of red and pink this past week with hearts, glitter and sweets all over the place. I hope this day treats you all well! Read More
On Thursday February 16th our Brooklyn store is holding an event that will include an art exhibition and raffle with local artist Jennifer Contini! Jennifer does beautiful heart installation paintings, incorporating a multitude of mediums, so it felt appropriate to share some of her work today with the approach of Valentine’s day! At the event, customers who spend $150 or more will be entered in a raffle to win a piece of her lovely work!
Jennifer’s website speaks of her love affair with New York, about which she says “I live and work in a place that beats to the same drum as I do. The fast urban pace of Manhattan is home, and my vibrant downtown neighborhood defines and inspires my work. This is the space where my artistic vein finds higher meaning.” Her pieces have a distinct urban, street art feel, and are like artistic valentines to the city she loves.
See more on her website. We’ll have more details on the event next week!
ok so these are kinda similar to the butterfly DIY i posted last week (here) but i wanted to share them because i think they’d be such a cute project for valentine’s day! as decoration or a gift for your loved ones…and it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard to do. you could follow the instructions from last week’s post, or if you want to make something that looks more like these, i think you could just glue the hearts right onto the backing paper, leaving some flat and some only glued on one side to get that cool fluttering effect :)
