Amazing. July 12 2010, 0 Comments

This photographer makes me want to use my fancy jewelry camera on my baby more often.  Her name is Amelia Lyon and she lives in California AND she even teaches classes on how to be an awesome photographer.  I have found my inspiration for better family photography, although if I lived near her I would definitely book her.  Visit her website here: www.amelialyon.netHere's one of my faves: But this...

Anika Easter August 19 2009, 0 Comments

I found Anika Easter's shop while stumbling through etsy. I am loving this painting:It's a 30" x 30" and it's already framed! It's so hard to find big, quality artwork on etsy that isn't thousands of dollars, and this is definitely a winner in that department. I think it would look very nice in my dining room... I have an art addition, in case you didn't know. Everyone who visits my house is...

Random Goodness - Band Poster Decorating January 23 2009, 0 Comments

When I moved into our new house, I thought that I had plenty of art to go around. But some of my older college paintings were ready to be retired from my wall (do I really need to hang the self portrait of me dancing in baggy pants in technicolor? uh, no. raver days are in the past.). So the first room to tackle is the kitchen. I have large, blank walls begging to have cool art on them -...

What did you buy today? April 28 2008, 0 Comments

So I stumbled upon Kate Bingaman-Burt via Indie Craft Documentary on Flickr and I totally dig what she does. It seems like I may be the last person to hear about her, (apparently she was just a featured buyer in the storque, see above photo) but she keeps a daily visual diary of things she purchases via black ink drawings. She puts them together into zines which she sells in her etsy shop and...

With love from me to you April 20 2008, 0 Comments

So here is a random fact about me - I am really bad at geography. Really, reallybad. It was my worst subject in high school and I always feared it coming up in history classes, which was sure to be the part of the test that I did miserably on. I went to Wyoming once and had to look it up on a map and I'm still surprised that it's above Colorado. And capitals? Fughettaboutit. So I have been...

Art Find: Photography by Erin Tyner March 10 2008, 0 Comments

Wow - I am so impressed with this photographer. Her name is Erin Tyner and she has a blog and an etsy shop where you can purchase her prints. Apparently she has only just begun this miniature series and I can't wait to see how it progresses! I really want the swimmer series to frame and hang in my house, but alas, I'm on an art strike since I am currently procuring a painting by Butler...

Etsy Art Picks March 11 2007, 0 Comments

I have been trying to be good and not spend money on random stuff lately (wedding and honeymoon rapidly approaching), but I absolutely love these two prints by Oh My Cavalier. The prints are made from original drawings by Julianna Swaney, an artist currently living and working in Michigan. She is inspired by birds, lace, anthropomorphism, natural history museums, old books and prints, and anything...
