070: Summer Projects

Today’s podcast is all about The 100 Day Project, classes I’m teaching, and visiting NYC (Fancy Food Show, YouTube Space, MoMA and getting my hair cut).  Mom picked out the photos and links to go with this week’s podcast.

A preview of my visit to MoMA (more photos on the blog next week):

Today’s podcast features a conversation about wrangling tables at HSN, the Robert Rauschenberg exhibit at MoMA, creating step-outs, and so much more!  It has been a crazy month full of fake eyelashes.

And so many craft projects that I can’t wait to share!  I hope you enjoy the podcast and all the chit chat.  We’re going to have a guest (gasp) on our next podcast!

P.S. Here is the link to my online pattern design class I mentioned on the podcast.

066: Matisse in the Studio

Today’s podcast features a conversation about the new Matisse in the Studio exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA), along with a painting class I’m currently taking there.  On my blog I have tons of photos from the exhibit and you can find them HERE.  And here’s a photo of my art class at the museum (more on that on another day):

…the play Sleep No More, and a stop to teach three classes at Papercraft Clubhouse in Connecticut on the way home!  I’ll be sharing lots of photos from those events in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, you can enjoy our conversation about them.

You can also get a peek at those events in this week’s vlog:

062: After Creativation

 

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s podcast features chatter about new classes, interrupting, the word interesting, the MFA Boston, the Blogiversary, and our visit to Creativation (formerly CHA).  I thought I’d include some photos from Creativation as a companion to the podcast.  Enjoy!

I am planning to share all of my projects very soon, but just so you know, I was finishing this quilt sample on the plane to Phoenix!

Speaking of Phoenix, I took a photo from our hotel room window that I thought was kind of cool:

I spent the first day setting up the Brother booth, which turned out great!

As I mention on the podcast, I demo-ed, demo-ed, and then demo-ed some more!  In the Brother Booth, the Crafter’s Workshop Booth and the Art Foamies Booth:

But, of course, Creativation is really about the opportunity to take photos with other people!

Ten points if you can guess which of my friends decided it was a good idea to give me a makeover…. 😉
