Cuckoo Clocks (especially Chalet versions!)
Pink Bunnies (I could only think of the inflatable ones. I have a tiny collection of pink bunny sculptures. I don't know why. They keep finding me.)
Sock Monkeys (I found these awesome variations on google!)
Artists to Mention (going through my Art in America stash, throwing out anything non-interesting & saving a stack of art clippings for some time in the future...)
Kaoki Honjo (does the Tilt Shift thing I wrote about a few months ago)
Fernando and Humberto Campana
Marion Palfi (explores racism through her photography)
Marina Abramovic (performance artist)
Lester Julian Merriweather
Jane Gottlieb (a new FAVORITE!)
& let's end with random ideas...
Miniature Dollhouse Necklaces
-with functioning hinges & movable parts (for when you get bored at work/class)
Barbie Shoe Necklacee
-punch holes in the backs of the heels and attach jump rings.
-arrange shoes in large quantities according to colors
I have this awesome idea for a bad day kit.
Whenever I or a friend has a bad day, we take out this kit.
In the kit, there is a cupcake mix including frosting and sprinkles.
Extra devil's food because the chocolate helps with the pain.
There is a paper banner that says "Worst Day Ever" on it that you hang on the wall.
There is a bag of confetti and five kitty cat noisemakers ("blowouts").
We bake the cupcakes, frost those suckahs, and put flat, circular pastel sprinkles on them.
Then we do a countdown to the top of the hour and in 3---2--1-, we throw the confetti.
Then we eat our cupcakes and celebrate the worst day ever.
Hopefully by then the excitement will get rid of the sad feelings.
See you soon!
