LED Lit Branch

Urban Outfitter find! A bit pricey for my budget --$24. But, a think it makes be a beautiful wreath for Christmas that is not only elegant and romantic but fantastical all together! So, I will have to try and make one myself. I will post some pics of my efforts.


Are they really flowers?

For an art project our teacher told us to create art in a public space...a sort of art intervention. So, a classmate of mine suggested we make flowers out of random objects around and place them in a lot for people to take and can enjoy. This way, we not only stop people, make them think about art, and be able to enjoy it!

I was looking around my dorm for things to use and then my roommate suggested that she had a bunch of excess forks knives and spoons.... AND...i was inspired!

The cactus is made out of crumpled paper. Baby's breathe is tissue paper on wire.
Don't believe me that the rest are made out of plastic cutlery?
Look for yourself...

What do you think?

Bird Decal

Ok, so my wall up at school was so empty and I needed to put something on it. I was surfing web when I realized that a wall decal would look great. However, they were really expensive, so I decided to make one my self.

Origami paper, black paint, and tape

Hey all you bloggers out there!

So this here is my very very first blog post and I felt the need to put something down to document it! I am very excited so, please forgive my excess use of exclamations. I also felt the need to explain what my blog is about. Over the years, I have come to accept and realize how much of a part art plays in my life. As a result, I wanted to put it all down and share it! I want to celebrate it and all the forms in which it comes in.

I'll leave you all with a quote from Magdelena Abakanowicz:
"Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality in our mind."
