W 02732

November 12, 2010

I don’t expect you to get very excited about this … but, this is super cool. A 1958 license plate, for a trailer, Washington state. It’s super cool because 1958 is the year of manufacture of my Streamline trailer, and I could actually use this plate as my for-true license plate if I wanted to [...]

Using my tools and talents for good

July 13, 2010

Today I came up with another idea for making use of some of the vintage things I have saved—pocket notebooks with postcards as covers. These were pretty fun and easy to make, but of course the right tools made that so. These included: bone folder booklet stapler colored staples fancy die-cutting device for rounding corners [...]

Jingle

July 2, 2010

I love when things are made from “nothing”. I love when “trash” becomes art. In the case of “jingles”, trash becomes art, fashion, and music. “Jingle”s are made by rolling a 1/4 circle of tin to form a cone. Often this tin is harvested from old Copenhagen boxes, those boxes that wear circles in the [...]

Saved

July 1, 2010

The National Blog Posting Month theme for July is “Saved” and doooooood, I ought to excel at this one. Of course, there are many permutations of “saved” and those possible twists are some of the charm of NaBloPoMo. For this theme, they say, This month we want you to tell us about the things you’ve [...]

This is the piece that started out as a “wall treatment” and which has evolved to be an “installation.” And yes, I am excited about that.

Just say, “Yes” to Seattle Erotic Art Festival

April 24, 2010

During my Mondo Beyondo work last month, one day the lesson was about saying, Yes. Part of the premise was about not seeing ourselves the same old way, and thereby releasing self-imposed restrictions on the possibilities for our lives. Luckily, that was the same day that I was approached to create a wall ornamentation at [...]

Serious wtf.

April 11, 2010

Things have been going along pretty swell. I’ve had myself on the he-is-dead plan and on lock-down—no meandering into spaces where my ex might be or may have left a trail. It’s been working okay, and with the new paradigm and regime, my number of melt-downs has diminished to almost nil. Nice. I have been [...]

It followed me home; may I keep it?

March 30, 2010

Day one, of my C&P Pilot tabletop printing press being HOME! It’s been languishing in the ex’s garage … waiting until I had a place to put it, and someone with the muscle and rig required to manhandle the 160 pounds of awkwardness. My brother is in town today, so he helped me get my [...]
