A friend and artist, Tali Weinberg uses dye, cloth, and art in order to champion to social causes and connect people from all over the world through craft. Her newest art piece based upon carmine dye from cochineal bugs will be showing on One Washington Place from Sept. 10 - 23.
I'm so glad she's doing what she loves while using her art for good. From the website:
Go to the website to watch time-lapse videos on the dyeing and weaving processes.
And once you pledge to this cause, Tali will you send you handmade, hand-dyed yarn and other great pieces. Beautiful!

My friend idrawsometimes recently posted about making your own ringtones, and I'm in the process of trying it out with songs by lullatone.
What do they sound like, you wonder?
They sound like light raindrops, crayons, children's sweaters, tiny robots, and bathtime bubbles. Have a listen, you'll see what I mean.
Wife and husband duo Yoshimi Tomida and Shawn James Seymour met when she was an exchange student in the states. When her visa expired, he decided to move back to Japan with her. At night, he would make music but since she was sleeping and he didn't want to disturb her, he made lullaby sounding songs, hence lullatone. Now they have a cute toddler named Niko, and live happily ever in a small but playful apartment in Nagoya. Cute!

A very sweet, very somber short film by Studio Canoe.
"The Diary of a Disappointed Book tells a disappointing year in the life of a book. Though they might often be our most treasured possessions, it is remarkable how easily books can be neglected, mistreated and sometimes even lost."
