Arts and Crafts for the Kid in You

For the past several days, I’ve been sick with a cold (or allergies, or something that makes you feel otherwise worthless as a productive human being).

Today, I felt completely cold-free and ready to do something other than lay on the couch staring at television programs and swallowing globs of cold medicine. Instead of twiddling my thumbs, I recycled glass Perrier water bottles, Mexican-imported Sprite bottles, and a Japanese push-top soda bottle -a.k.a. my new flower vases.

Kara Walker: Sphinx Sculpture Strikes a Chord that Resonates with 1000s

I wish I were in Brooklyn, NY to visit Kara Walker’s exhibit: A Subtlety, or The Marvelous Sugar Baby. Opening a dialogue about slavery, race, gender and various cultural bias and stigma, Walker’s sculpture has dug its claws deep into the psyche of Brooklyn and the world.

The work is striking. Walker and her crew erected a Sphinx out of 80,000 lbs of refined sugar. Once the exhibit closes on July 6 2014, the sugar will be recycled.

If you are in Brooklyn, visit Kara Walker’s exhibit inside the Domino Sugar Factory. You have to see this amazing feat of genius. Visit Creative Time now to watch a short video about Walker’s project.

WEDNESDAY CAT ATTACK!!!

WEDNESDAY CAT ATTACK!

Facebook is one of my favorite social media sites because it not only connects me with a large group of real-life and virtual friends, it’s also a reliable hub of fantastic cat pictures. As many of you know, I’m kind of crazy about cats. Maybe not to as much as eHarmony’s Cat Lady but definitely a close second.

Every Wednesday, I will share with you a random cat photo that I’ve seen on Facebook or have had sent to me by friends and family. For the first installment of WEDNESDAY CAT ATTACK, here is a picture posted by Bullet Media Online‘s Founder Eric Bullet.

UPDATE: This piece was created by David Lamplugh,  illustrator behind the Franklin BBQ sauce bottle’s cast of smoked meats loving characters.

Have a HAPPY WEDNESDAY CAT ATTACK DAY!
