Brooklyn Lyceum's Food & Craft Fair

I'm debating what to write about this weekend's show...   The pic pretty much says it all.  Food. Crafts.  Spring.  Lyceum.  Talking Bird.   Gonna be good times!

And if my gushing endorsement as well as my lovely presence with lots of punctured paper products wont induce you...   Then I should tell you that there will be over 100 vendors on two floors in a this fabulous Park Slope, Brooklyn location.   It's right down the street (1/2 a block) from the D, M, N, R station.   Map says it all.

Hope I'll see you there!

Take a peek at the Spring Handmade Cavalcade

I was going to write an entry about all the wonderful vendors that will be at he Spring Handmade Cavalcade (and I still might), but Wabisabi Brooklyn put me to shame with her Treasury on etsy.   Once again a picture proves it's worth a 1000 words!

The lushness of Spring

I love the flowers of spring.  Not only because it's the sign that winter is over, but because they are so bold and strong and extravagant.   The cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden are peaking...   I was there alone, but I can't keep my pictures to myself.  It was glorious!

Sustainable art is in your backyard!

In less than two weeks the {NewNew} invades on Williamsburg, Brooklyn when we take over Berry Park for our Spring Handmade Cavalcade.   This year's show has a special emphasis on sustainability and eco-consciousness.  Each vendor has a different angle on what they do to promote good environmental behavior.   Some use recycled materials.  Some upcycle old materials.   Some source only local raw materials.   Some buy in bulk.   The one thing we all have in common is that we make our work locally to keep our carbon footprint small.   Take a look at all the amazing vendors!

Join us in our efforts to shrink our carbon footprint by shopping locally.  Come to the SHC for art, food, clothing, jewelry, and so much more!

How to Make a Lampshade... warpeDesign style

It's up!   My step into fame... dunno about fortune.   While I don't think I'm destined to become a web phenom, I think the episode on's Decor it Yourself about my NYC Skyline punctured paper lampshade is quite respectable.  The best compliment on it came from a friend who claims to be "artistically incapable".  She said that she thought even she could follow these directions!   Yay.  Success!   

So check it out, give me your (not so honest reviews), and enjoy.
