An interesting little blog ditty that's going around: Word Cloud. It scans your blog, and builds a nice folksonomy-style graphic from the most frequently-used words. (Even better, you can edit it.) Pick the font, pick the color, and then if you like, you can get it printed on a T-shirt.
I had no idea I'd used the word "enjoy" that many times in my blog. My apologies to all. :-)
There's a new and fabulous group blog in the Craftosphere -- Whipup.net. It's the brainchild of Kathreen Ricketson, and features contributions from just about every craft blogger you've heard of.
Here's a bit from their manifesto: "This website has been created in order to bring the best original and exciting crafts to the attention of many. To create a community of artists, crafters and makers and share ideas in a central space."
Woo Hoo! I'm so there!
that a little idea can go a long way. this one's for the physical strain of reading.

See 300 years of color-coded fashion at Cooper Hewitt's latest exhibition Fashion In Colors. By raiding the closet of the Kyoto Costume Institute, the show manages to feature everything from 18th-century brocade dressing gowns to last season's offerings from Viktor & Rolf, arranged obsessively in rooms of blue, red, yellow, black, white and multicolored (just in case).
Back by popular demand! I'll be teaching another class series on making an embroidered portrait at Make Workshop in NYC. I'll share my process and guide a class toward making their own works in embroidery. Seating is necessarily limited to seven people, for three sessions of two-hour classes starting on 2/2. The last class sold out, and this one is already half full! For more info, and to get a seat, visit Make Workshop.
i wish i was this smart.
