FLICKR MONDAYS-Lauren “look left and look right”

Happy Monday All!

These landscapes shots of beautiful Canada are leaving me so excited to visit there again! Canada is one of those places that I keep wanting to go back for more. Such a beautiful place, and I’ve seen so little of it.

Etsy Schmetsy: Ho Ho Holidays!

Shop Handmade & Local for the Holidays!

Owen and I will be selling at two craft sales at Fort Mason this season. The first, the RISD Alumni Holiday Art Sale is this Sunday, December 5th. We have done this sale for a few years and it is a pretty great time seeing the variety of work our fellow alumni have been up to. Here’s Owen’s writeup of last year’s show.

RISD Alumni Holiday Art Sale — San Francisco
Sunday, December 5
Fort Mason Center, Building A
9:30 am to 5 pm

Next weekend, December 11-12, we will be selling at Bazaar Bizarre along with Experts Agree coeditor Jessica (tiniestj). It looks to be the best one yet: the vendor  lineup is well-curated and there’s even food trucks and cocktails involved.

Bazaar Bizarre
Saturday and Sunday, December 11-12
Fort Mason Center (Herbst Pavilion)
Saturday: 12  to 5 pm; plus the new Cocktails & Crafts Party 7 to 10 pm
Sunday: 12 to 6 pm
**Admission to the sale is free. Admission to the Cocktails & Craft Party is $10 — advance tickets can be purchased here **

We’ll be selling our new teeny-tiny calendars, a new gocco print, notebooks, gift tags, and of course our holiday (and other-occasional) greeting cards. And if you missed out on Jessica’s fantastic handstamped Max Fischer extracurricular activities pencil set when she sold out of them in a few hours last time, Bazaar Bizarre is the time to resolve that problem.

Photography-Katie Quinn Davies

Sorry for the delayed posting! These beautiful photos from Katie Quinn Davies reminds me how beautiful food can be. I’m already missing the delicious Thanksgiving food!

Sorry for the “X’s” in the upper right-hand corner–these are screenshots taken from her site.

Jill Sylvia

Aren’t these pieces from artist Jill Sylvia so lovely? Since they combine some of my favorites, ledgers and cut paper (speaking of which, I cannot wait for my copy of Tree of Codes to arrive!), it probably comes as no surprise that I am enamored with them. Check out her site to see some amazing looking installations and some more sculptural pieces as well.

FLICKR MONDAYS-”Nothing is clear”

Happy Monday!

Really excited that we have a short week at work with lots of home-cooked meals to look forward to at the end of the week!

Ran across this beautifully curated flickr gallery by “Kid_Curry.” These photos remind me how pretty and cozy fog can be.

Enjoy!

Etsy Schmetsy: Hanukkah Schmanukkah

We are in full-blown holiday planning mode, printing like crazy and getting ready for this year’s holiday craft sales. And although I am knee-deep in Christmas, it feels a bit early for a Christmas Schmetsy. Thankfully, Hanukkah starts very early this year, December 1, so today’s Schmetsy is totally timely and appropriate; I hope you enjoy it.

FLICKR (NOT THIS TIME) MONDAYS-”ROYGBIV”

Hi All,

Love these interior photos all compiled on “roygbiv‘s” site. Take a peek, and enjoy.

ImagineNations

Given how often we discuss maps, it should come as no surprise that we are also big fans of globes; I’m kind of loving these decoupaged vintage globes from ImagineNations. Oh, and if there is something you’ve been dying to see on a globe, she makes custom commissions.
