a day in the life...

Everything "geek" is fabulous...
Merriam Webster Definition of "Geek:"

2 : a person often of an intellectual bent who is disliked
3 : an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity <computer geek>

Photo-essay by guest artist, Bri:
It's fun to read.
I love surrounding myself with the great authors.
I need glasses.
Do you like my sock monkey. I do...
Don't you hate it when you get an itch and you have to remove your glasses in order to relieve the itch?

Photo-documentary by T:

During gym class, I read A Portrait of A Young Artist instead...
Eventually, they made me participate...
I started to like it.
I played hard.
I played a little too hard.
It was really intense.

UPDATE: Lovin' on Dirty Lovin'

Darling Readers,

Recently we got a surprise gift in the mail! We LOVE surprise gifts! Apparently, a tiny minion (who requested anonymity) was so inspired by our "Dirty Lovin'" post that she created this beautiful acrylic piece in response.

She writes: "I love the juxtaposition of chic and grunge, so as soon as I saw your 'Dirty Lovin' post I knew my next piece had to relate somehow. I call it - 'Lost or Found (...Cart)?' "

THANK YOU avid fan! Your detailed craftsmanship and luminescent talent is perfection!

How FABULOUS is this?!

One of our headdress creations was spotted at an LA party.
Clearly, our earlier post lives on...
