How To Fake It

Pin It








You know they want and expect the real thing. But maybe your head isn't in the right space. You're tired, cranky and have several other items whirling around in your head.  You need to know how to fake it.  With a little imagination, using what you have and creative presentation you can achieve the happy ending.  In this case, being the Ice Queen counts - warm it up to the idea - make it delicious and sinful looking. Voila! They will never know the difference. Trust me.

iversity Design 101 (or Design Basics) I enrolled!

Pin It

Back to school for me!
Design 101 is a journey into contemporary design in which you will transform yourself and your everyday life into 101 projects.
Why not come to class with me?  It's FREE!  Enroll here.
For three months, you will develop basic design attitudes that will allow you to thrive in today’s world, while restoring your understanding of its mechanics. We live in a global community where the physical bits are slowly (and not so slowly) overlapped by social media. Design has become #design. Indeed, the use of new technologies has changed the teaching and, by the same token, the nature of the past; the past is being renewed. Herein lies the conceptual hinge of Design 101: a new way to learn a new design.
**this course just started yesterday - lots of time this week to begin.
To do so, we will collectively explore the tools of today (such as this MOOC platform) to step into a fantastic voyage through time and space, in which we are all absolute beginners.
Did you know that 'real' universities are recognizing MOOC as credit?

I've seen the world, lit it up as my stage nowChanneling angels in, the new age nowHot summer days, rock and rollThe way you'd play for me at your showAnd all the ways I got to knowYour pretty face and electric soul
Will you still love mewhen I'm no longer young and beautifulWill you still love mewhen I got nothing but my aching soulI know you will, I know you willI know that you willWill you still love mewhen I'm no longer beautiful
Dear lord when I get to heavenPlease let me bring my manWhen he comes tell me that you'll let meFather tell me if you can
Oh that grace, oh that bodyOh that face makes me wanna partyHe's my sun, he makes shine like diamonds
Will you still love mewhen I'm no longer young and beautifulWill you still love mewhen I got nothing but my aching soulI know you will, I know you willI know that you willWill you still love mewhen I'm no longer beautifulWill you still love mewhen I'm no longer beautifulWill you still love mewhen I'm not young and beautiful

Humans of New York Book Best Price

Pin It

Based on the blog with nearly a million loyal fans, a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs capturing the spirit of a city

In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton set out on an ambitious project: to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City.  Armed with his camera, he began crisscrossing the city, covering thousands of miles on foot, all in an attempt to capture New Yorkers and their stories.  The result of these efforts was a vibrant blog he called “Humans of New York,” in which his photos were featured alongside quotes and anecdotes. 

The blog has steadily grown, now boasting nearly a million devoted followers.  Humans of New York is the book inspired by the blog.  With four hundred color photos, including exclusive portraits and all-new stories, Humans of New York is a stunning collection of images that showcases the outsized personalities of New York.

Surprising and moving, printed in a beautiful full-color, hardbound edition, Humans of New York is a celebration of individuality and a tribute to the spirit of the city. 

With 400 full-color photos and a distinctive vellum jacket

To Quince or Not to Quince, That is the Question

Pin It



















I walk by this tree every day and you can help.
What kind of luscious fruit is this?
It is in Southern Ontario, Canada.
Could it be quince?

Nick Olson & Lilah Horwitz | Makers (Documentary)

Pin It








Photographer Nick Olson, 27, who works with old-fashioned labor-intensive photographic processes, and designer Lilah Horwitz, 23, who makes "site-specific clothing," met at an artist’s residency in Pennsylvania.  Early on in their relationship, Olson invited Horwitz to join him on a trip to his family’s property in southern West Virginia. One evening, the two went on a walk in the woods that resulted in an artistic vision.

Come build a place like this with me. Please.

Kitchener Horticultural Society: Rockway Gardens

Pin It



































































There is no way I'm in Ontario in October.
But I kid you not.
This is not an island paradise
but the Rockway Gardens of Kitchener, Ontario.

The Kitchener Horticultural Society (KHS) 
was established in 1872 and is now 139 years old! 
Since 1928, the Society has had the privilege of managing 
Rockway Gardens for the City of Kitchener.

The Society offers a variety of activities for its almost 500 members 
including garden tours, 
perennial exchanges, bulb sales, seminars,
 and workshops, youth events, horticultural therapy programs, and much more.
