Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is heading off to a great start. The weather has taken a bit of a summer break and cooled down enough to open up the windows again.
Let me open my email and extract the rest of the good links that I’ve been holding to share:
Designsponge shared this post featuring a project embellishing stairs with design. I think it is absolutely fabulous and wish I had stairs of my own to do this to. Someday.
Racheal Anilyse contributed to Found Art Tuesday with these postcards which are lovely and perfectly capture the spirit of Found Art Tuesday with their uplifting message. On the back of the postcard is a modified version of the poem Sonno Mama: As Is.
Decor8 shared this link to a company who will print up to 5 yards of your designwork onto fabric. Very cool. Actually, that reminds me, last week I printed out a pattern I designed onto some iron on transfer and afixed it to some fabric. It was pretty stiff so I plan on putting it through the washer and dryer a few times to soften it up.
Last night at my artgroup meeting, we started talking about how energy is harnessed. There was lots of talk about the sun, coal, gas and generators. Well, as the headline on their blog states: this next site is not about those kind of generators. Onegoodbumblebee shared a link to the Generatorblog which just keeps us all up to date on the latest internet generators.
A few good ones from a quick browse through the site: What’s Your Problem, apparently my problem is that “I’m a bullying crankypants who don’t take no crap from nobody”. It’s especially fitting because I do use the term crankypants with some frequency. Here’s a generator for making cool worm paintings. And lastly, a little known and possibly embarrassing fact is that when I was in early college and had late morning classes, I would watch the smurfs on Cartoon Network and started keeping a list every the names of every smurf ever mentioned. So in honor of that, I present you with the smurf name generator.
Smurf on Everyone!
