I’ve never been good at crossword puzzles.  You would think as an English major, I would be able to do them in pen.  I don’t think I’ve ever solved a single one.  They are just maddening to me.  Recently the game Sudoku started showing up in my local newspaper.  It’s all about numbers and patterns, something I can’t seem to get enough of.  I just started doing them this week...

I was watching Oregon Art Beat (one of my very favorite shows) the other day and they had a little ad about online lesson plans.  I finally got around to checking it out and it’s amazing.  They have over 100 lessons plans on all different types of art.  Everything is done for the teacher and it’s broken out by skill level.   This is open to all teachers and students in Oregon and SW...

I found this link on Extreme Craft.  I love having a male voice talk about crafts.  It’s so refreshing.  Plus, there is some really crazy stuff on his site.  I had to post this site about Hot dog Art produced by the Nippon Meat Packers.  If you click on the individual circles, directions on how to create the lovely designs pop up.  I know my husband is going to love this.  He’s been known...

I first saw him as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.  If you haven’t seen this play, you have to rent the movie.  It’s...

I’ve just discovered Tiny Showcase.  A group of people release a small piece of art work each week.  Each piece of art has a limited run print production.  The art sells for about $12.00 to $15.00 dollars.  This is a great way to make art affordable.  It seems that they put out a new piece each Tuesday.  I can’t wait to buy myself one.  Most of the previous prints are sold out, so I think...

Last night my husband and I had the opportunity to do some volunteer work and get to see the Coldplay concert in Vancouver.  Coldplay invites Oxfam to set up booths at their concerts and ask people to sign petitions trying to Make Trade Fair.  If you have ever wondered what Chris Martin has on his hand or carved into his piano, this is it.  I must admit I am sorely lacking in my knowledge of some of these...
