How i LOVE Valentine's Day...

But NOT in the way you might think!! 

For the past two years, Boy and i have spent Valentine's Day going to an event that honors an INCREDIBLE women! This year Boy and I had tickets to see Jonatha Brooke's play, "My Mother Has Four Noses". 

You know when you see someone and immediately wish you knew them in real life? I felt that connection with Jonatha when i saw her on Jen Lee's trailer for her film, "Indie Kindred".

The show was unexpected, emotional, and heart felt. All Jonatha had to do was open her mouth to sing her very first song, and i was already crying. Her voice is THAT lovely. 

After the show i just stood there, tears running down my face as i waited patiently to see if Jonatha was going to come out. Not even realizing i was surrounded by friends of hers, the tears streamed faster when she appeared at the end of the hallway. And continued to fall as i watched her hug and greet everyone.

And then it was my turn. I got to briefly chat, and hug her myself. And she was JUST as wonderful in person as she seemed on stage.

Last year the boy and i had the PLEASURE of going to an event Grand Central was throwing. A valentines day event featuring Sophie Blackall!! I'm sure you've seen her work before, but if not, you'll surely swoon. She's seriously one of the most talented watercolorists and illustrators i know. The event was lovely, and i had a few moments to chat with her when she signed her book, Missed Connections. I really hope to take a watercolor class she teaches one day!! That would be AMAZING.

I feel so grateful we have such wonderful events and people in New York! It's such a blessing! I'm excited to see what NEXT YEAR brings! yay! :)

Baily Doenst Bark

Baily Doesn't Bark

While looking for Valentine's Day inspired items, I have recently (along with MANY others) stumbled upon "Baily Doesn't Bark". Re Jin is an truly inspiring, taking something as simple as home wares and creating amazing imagery. The most inspiring thing of all is a statement from her website.

"Re Jin began her career as a fashion designer and stylist. Though she loved working in the fashion industry, she eventually longed to return to her artistic roots of drawing and painting."

Artists who end up in a wonderful field, loving their job and life, and still manage to feel the pull to being them back to their original calling, is what i strive for everyday.

Make sure to look at her other pieces such as her "Ants on my Plate" setting.
