Sort of an aside, but it seems like my work is to be published in definitely one and possibly two books this year.
The definite: Communicating with Pattern: Circles and Dots, an inspirational sourcebook by Keith Stephenson of Absolute Zero Degrees, who make fabulous wallpaper by the way. There will be some jewelry of mine that feature circles as a pattern.
The possible: No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas For Your Blog, also an inspirational ideabook by the mighty Maggie Mason of shopping blog mightygoods.com. Maggie wanted to use an art project I made long ago for 20things.org, one of the earliest internet swaps, the brainchild of my friend Judith Zissman.
And around town - new stores are popping up everywhere. There is a new home store on Henry in Brooklyn Hts called Abitare, it's tucked next to the Tazza coffee/wine bar and they aren't ever open when I get home but it looks nice. And a Flight 001(!) is popping up at Smith and Bergen where Valencia Bakery used to be. I hope they keep the great old 3D signage...but I have a feeling they won't.
It's supposed to be a gorgeous 81 degrees today, I think the store will be busy. Just wait til you see all the new things!
