Cold and Cloudy

It's overcast and freezing today in San Francisco. So it's fitting I share another cloud mobile I finished this week. This special one goes to baby Adam...congrats Tommy and Phuong!

Friday This + That

I have plans for a full day of crafting this afternoon and then I head down to Santa Barbara! I'm looking forward to the long holiday weekend hanging out with my sisters. We don't have solid plans but knowing that we will be making pit stops at In-n-Out and watching The Bodyguard when we arrive is getting me really excited! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
1. Manifest Destiny - an art installation of a rustic cabin protruding from a downtown San Francisco hotel. I'm definitely going to take a stroll down there next week to check it out.
2. Gennine's polka dot nails done with acrylic paints...gonna have to dig up my paints and give it a try.
3. Loving these illustrations by London-based image maker Daniel Frost.
4. iOS 86 by Anton Repponen made me laugh.
5. Last week, I went on a studio tour at the Heath Ceramics factory in Sausalito. It was amazing to get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes. Made me appreciate the bowls and cups I bought even more!
6. The most creative, jaw-dropping invitation ever. Those 35 license plates belong to real people. Wow.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! I thought I would share these illustrations I did for the Arthouse Co-op's Sketchbook Project last year. Hope your day is filled with lots of love!

Friday This + That

I had a case of insomnia last night and stayed up til 4am perusing the the web so I leave you with a handful of random web goodies from my sleepless night. Hope you have a fantastic weekend.
1. Hilda Grahnat and friends just released a nifty little zine called Portraits of Grandpa. "As our grandpas disappear, so do their stories. We've made this zine to celebrate them..."
2. A little bit obsessed with Swedish duo, Korellreven right now. If you're into lush, florid electro- pop, you'll  love the album. Thanks Jenny!
3. Love Shini's fashion blog, Park & Cube. And her amazing design portfolio. (via Katrina)
4. Have you ever heard of a paper engineer? Me neither. This video shows the amazing work of Benja Harney.
5. Polka dot flats. Want. Now.
6. Maybe it's because Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but I'm smitten over these love letters between Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz.
