create: knotted bedspread

too bad i just purchased this duvet or i might be inclined to whip up this very anthropology-ish knotted bedspread for $30.

bright idea: jersey pillow

jersey pillow by v & co. via curbly

sorry its been awhile -- I've been busy getting engaged.  :-)  i'm holding off on the wedding blogs, magazines, you-name-it until after the cse... but there is always time for crafting and in a superb stroke of luck, i came across curbly.  holy lots of great DIY projects!  first up, one of these fun snuggly pillows in plum.  :-)

before i die public art exhibit by candy chang

i don't know what it is but i'm on a public art kick right now.  candy chang took an abandoned building in new orleans, painted it with a bunch of chalkboard paint and stenciled the words "before i die i want to ____ "  she then left pieces of chalk for passerby's to fill in the blanks.  i love public art that is truly influenced by the public.

The Laundromat Project brings art supplies to places where people gather... like, say, the laundromat!  Very cool idea.
