i'm getting ready for a trip back to new york and i'm so excited to finally explore brooklyn a little more. with the guidance of brooklyn diary, i think i'll have no trouble finding some great spots. and yes, i am the nerd who prints out the google map pre-trip despite owning an iphone with mapping capabilities. what can i say, i like to be prepared.

any places i should check out in brooklyn or manhattan? the brooklyn museum's keith haring exhibit and moma's cindy sherman show are already on my list of to-dos...

enroute for a 2nd cup of coffee (a rarity for me), i soon discover that 3:30pm marks the best time to walk with your shadow.


fully equipped with coffee, i also realize that the walk back is shadowless and therefore slightly lonely...


so i turn around for one last look and silently mouth to myself, hey girl...

remember this yarn? i decided to knit it into brooklyn tweed's rosebud hat. after finishing a knitting project, i always want to make a couple of tweaks. i'm often left wondering how many versions it will take before i feel like the pattern is right. revise, revise again, revise some more... so it goes.

a couple of weeks ago at craft night, we tried to draw people from memory. i cheated and perused facebook again. this time, i opted to draw my former intern christine. ever the helpful and intelligent intern (seriously, she was one smart cookie), christine accidentally dropped a plate of cupcakes at our art opening. she then put them back on the plate and kept serving gallery goers. well done chistine... well done.

m found a stack of slides on the sidewalk. i've been having fun imagining how these men ended up on an adventure. i like to think they're childhood friends taking a trip of a lifetime...

lucy chadwick / a selby film for zara via awelltraveledwoman
i really enjoyed this video. everything about chadwick and her life seem irresistible to me. and don't even get me started on those glasses and that ruby sweater!

apparently sam is my unofficial muse, as he made an appearance in my sketchbook. sometimes drawing people from memory is beyond difficult, so you know what you do? stalk them on facebook.
