I've got to make this a quick post because I am scrambling to get my house in order now that the kitchen reno is winding down. It's SO good to have furniture in place again, and for things to be CLEAN. I thought I'd start with some ideas for Christmas gifts for the guys in our lives. Because we all know how tough they are to shop for. Here are some ideas from 2Modern (click on photos for details).
I posted about Colleen Duffley's work last year, and her friend Molly emailed today with a heads-up on Colleen's latest project: "Colleen is actually starting a new studio (Studio b!) in early 2009 that will be more of a cultural/ lifestyle venue; bringing in top photographers, designers, chefs, authors, musicians, and artists for classes and seminars, events, as well as gallery exhibitions. Studio b will be doing cooking classes, photography classes, for adults and kids... and really establish a venue for creativity. The first event that Studio b. is hosting is an online photo exhibiton of people's first shot of the new year, which must be taken from a cell phone camera! We have been working hard to get the word out, so it will be fun to see how many we get and from what corner of the world!! The website is new, so we will be updating constantly." Details are below - what a great idea!!
Neece Clark is an artist based out of Seattle who creates unique fine-art wall designs and original paintings for clients. Check out samples of her paintings here, murals here and great gift ideas in her shop. Below are some of my favourites (so pretty!!).
