Here are some things I’ve recently shared on Instagram.
Susan Morrow’s crochet art (find more info on Crochet Concupiscence)
Memoirs – stocked up for some indulgent reading!
Just enjoying this today:
Spotted via Weburbanist, which always has cool stuff.
During my mom’s visit we went to the Disney Museum. It opened a few years ago but I hadn’t been to it, yet, so it was cool to check it out. There are ten rooms of exhibits, each focusing on a different part of Disney’s life and work. Each room has tons of photos, videos and information. You could probably spend all day there if you wanted to! They also have a theater (playing Cinderella when we were there) although we didn’t check it out this time around.
I just loved this too much not to share it.
Dezeen says: “Canadian firm RAW Design has created a series of shelters that look like giant pompoms to keep skaters warm on a frozen river in Winnipeg.” Lots more info in the full article.
I was recently looking through the courses that are offered in the Women’s Spirituality degree program at my school (CIIS). There are three related courses offered related to the power of women in the arts. I thought I’d share some of the names of the creative, spiritual women and their works that are highlighted in those course descriptions.
I’ve read some of Allende’s work and love it and want to read more, including her newest book Ripper: A Novel. I’m embarassed to say that I don’t think I’ve read any of Kingston’s full works and I’ve never even heard of the other two women – something I intend to remedy ASAP.
Swissnex has an interactive website up now called My Future Vision. When you go to it, you’ll see how different people have very briefly finished the statement … “My vision of the future is …”
Each time that you go to it you’ll see different responses. You can add your own responses in and they’ll get added to the mix that people see from time to time.
How would you answer this question in just a few words? I chose to write, “collaboration, compassion“. To be honest, I’m not sure that’s how I see the future but that is what my hope for the future is and I’d rather share the hopes and spread the optimism than share anything dark or conflicted right now.
I’m enjoying the creative finger dancing of “master finger tutter” Pnut. What do you think?
More of his videos over on The Bold Italic.
I thought I’d start the year off by sharing some of the pretty things I photographed in the last few months but hadn’t had time to share, yet. Here they are. Enjoy!
Sometimes I really like when other people publish lists of things because it gives me something to work off of to learn something new. That was the case earlier this year when I saw Arch Daily’s article called The 30 Architecture Docs To Watch In 2013. I haven’t watched anything on the list yet but I came across the bookmark on my computer and got re-interested in working my way through the list. I think it would give me a great foundation in architecture, a design area that interests me but that I don’t know a whole lot about. A lot of them seem to be available online so I’ll start there. Have you seen any of them? Got any suggestions where to start?
