That’s right, it’s finally upon us, the opening night of Stitch Fetish!!!  It looks great!!  Here’s a peak at the entrance to the show:

In prep for the show, last week I did an episode of my pal Todd’s videocast, Film Pigs! Which I can’t seem to embed and I have too much to do to argue with WordPress right now, so you can watch that HERE. I have to say, it made me laugh.

And, if I didn’t have enough going on, my super talented new space mate at the Hive, Sarah Ockuly, and I re-did our space, repainted, blah blah blah. I think it looks great! Much prefer this to the previous gray walls.

Okay, off to run errands and such and hope to see you all this evening!

And here’s a little taste of what I’m working on for the show, some new “off white” work.

Do you know about the Craftivist Collective in the UK, run by my lovely friend Sarah Corbett?  They’re a super group (not the kind that fills stadiums and has gold records) that create projects and host workshops for public works all on socially relevant topics.  Sarah’s amazing, and just got back from Indonesia!! but that’s another story for another time.

Sarah’s putting together a book!!! And they need some help fundraising, so here’s some info, in the lady’s very own words:

“I’ve attached information on a Little Book of Craftivism we are producing with Cicada Publishing (who are boss!) but they can only pay for half of the budget because this is a niche market and a risk for them. So, we are crowdfunding the rest of the money (£5000- we currently have £1400 from individuals. The deadline is 1st February eek!). Would you or any of your contacts (individuals or organizations) be interested in offering some funding for this book? It can be as little at £1 to £3000.”

HERE is where you can donate and find out more about the book.

If anyone is interested, I’ve started a Tumblr… a Tumble? Regardless, you can see images of stuff I made or like HERE!

Hope everyone is weathering the holiday whirl.  I got home late last night.  Brought Cali warmth with me (55 degrees when I landed), but the temps have fallen over night (45 now) and will continue to fall all week.  Hey, maybe I’ll get a white Christmas.

For those of you who are less than pleased at the prospect of family and home, I submit the Awkward Family Photos 12 days of Xmas.  I’m sure you know this site by now, but I’d like to remind you how funny they are!  Here’s my favorite Awkward Xmas moment thus far this year:

Merry Happy Everyone!

Loving the new Beastie Boys vid – I love when you can see the hands! – but this might be the best Hip Hop video ever made!

Thanks to everyone who’s picked up and blogged my Tenenbaum pillows: Geekcraft, Cuss-Yeah, Wess Anderson, The Terrier and the Lobster, and if there’s anyone else I don’t know about, thanks thanks!

The show is up at Gallery1988, and the works are available on their website!
