first fridays... it's a riot. (right tony?)

this friday you don't want to miss first fridays in 5 points!

anomaly will be showcasing new works by herb ephlick. he's got a modern, progressive street art style and adds a little political satire to the mix. it's really cool stuff and the smaller pieces will be running at about $75. would make a nice present for that special someone for valentine's day!
the free beer and wine will be flowin' till it's gone AND we'll have tons of new OBEY straight from southern cali!!!

make sure to also check out lots of other fun stuff going on around the neighborhood. live music and art at FLUX, beers and tasty treats at RAGLANDS, O'BROTHERS, STEAMWORKS and more!!! make a night of it and don't let the cold weather scare you away! there will be plenty of beer flowing to keep you toasty.
hope to see you in 5P friday!
6-9P (or later!)

more cutesy animal valentines!

tell the one you love how 'tweet' he/she is with a birdy card! this one is my favorite! i got the cute printed card from the $1 store in a pack of 8 for a buck! (i know, so cute!!!) and then used solid card stock to build the picture. i have drawn out all the patterns, and if my scanner is working, i will post the patterns later so you can try this at home. i'm heading to the store shortly with a lot on my to do list, so we'll what the day brings.

another take is to make a little tag instead of a card. fill a cool jar (i went with a flea market find from the other day!) with tasty candies and special treats and tie the tag around the top. what a cute lil' summin' for someone special. i'd already stamped this one, but after the fact i thought of putting 'a special tweet just for you' on it... oh well there's always next time.

i was feeling inspired to make more little paper patchwork animals last night. i did a little mouse stamped with "be my big cheese please"... i know... i know... so dorky, but isn't that what valentine's day is all about.

i've got so many ideas to write about this week... i'm going to post a kid craft... yesterday after the park, my son and i made a cute owl out of a pine cone. pics and instructions to come! yay!

and can i just say, 3 cheers for multiple posts in a week! you better watch out... there's loads more where this came from. i don't know where all this blogging energy is coming from, but i love it.

don't miss craftacular tuesdays TONIGHT from 6:30-8:30. it's always a great time!

until then... xoxo.
