the weekender

Happy Friday all.  Here area few things to start your weekend off pleasant.

Amy Kligman’s new acrylics are beautiful. I love the patterns and that weird feeling that I can relate (I hate to say things like “I can relate to art.”) Her new series is Thoughts Before Sleeping. Thanks to DesignforMankind for the heads up.

This peplum skirt from PSIMadeThis is absolutely darling. She made it out of a curtain. I hear about these repurposed curtain projects (very sound of music-esque) but I haven’t been able to find a cute and lightweight curtain fabric.

This guy at Manhattan Nest redid an ikea frame and made this

It’s gorgeous. And cheaper than similar beds of that style. Check out his tutorial.

[edit just found this two hours after original post] I have to remember that things like outer space exist. It’s so easy to forget about it. Check out this lovely photo gallery of The Summer’s Sexiest Images of Saturn.

Looking for colorful inspiration? You should check out ColourLovers. It’s sort of aimed toward the computer crowd (with RGB mixes and Hex codes) but it is still a good source to break through that creative block. To start, pick a color and search their pallets.  They’ll provide cute color mixes to work with. I have an awful eye for complementary colors. I find this site very helpful.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. The in-laws are coming. I can’t wait. <3
