Between Small Studio (thanks for the steady stream of orders), the Workshop Registrations (moving along nicely), basketball playoffs and dinners (they finished 18-1), a few doctor appointments, making art, tax stuff, a good book and wanting to be outside in the sun, I have been neglecting my readers.
We went to see Alice in Wonderland this afternoon. Great effects. Johnny Depp was good. Helena Bonham Carter was awesome. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was not as interested as I thought I would be. John liked it better than I did. He gave it an 8 out of 10. I gave it a 6.
More Etsy stuff online in our shop. Kelly Kilmer has turned me onto Japanese tapes. I ordered one of these for myself and just love it. It is made from Washi paper and lays down so flat that it looks like a printed design not added on tape.
Kelly has also turned me onto a wonderful magazine called Uppercase.
We love this issue, our first, and will be ordering back issues as soon as we can. It is pricey, but so creative. Even though it is beautifully printed on high quality paper, it has retained the feel of a zine. It is a mix of graphically inspiring photos and quirky articles. Love it when I can get it away from John!
Note: When I checked my blog to see if it published, it has but cut off one side of the photos and messed up the text. I have no idea why.
