I’m still traveling in another time zone right now so I’m not even too sure what day of the week it is. I do however, feel like I completely missed film Fridays. I’ll return back to normal in the coming week. In the meantime, wish here’s to hoping that I’ll defeat any signs of jet lag when I return home.
"There’s no reason to not do nothing," says 99-year-old Lillian Weber who have made more than 840 dresses in the past two years. Each of which is made from a pattern but Weber adds a personal touch so every single dress remains one of a kind for the deserving children in Africa. Weber sews one dress per day and donates it through a non-profit organization called Little Dress for Africa. Her goal is to make her 1000th dress by May 6th, 2015 when she turns 100! You are truly an inspiration, Lillian Weber: I hope more people will strive to accomplish at least half of what you have done.
I’m leaving on a jet plane but I know when I will be back again! Off on a business trip…Currently waiting to transfer. Don’t think this is visible in the photo but here was a bird flying around inside around the glass. It’s going to be a long 12 something hour flight. I’m a tad bit shorter than average but that doesn’t mean my knees doesn’t get sore!
Looking at this photo gets me all giddy without fail every single time. This photo was taken prior to a craft show when I was preparing for my booth. It was only then had I realize how many notebooks I’ve made. Even though I wasn’t really anticipating any type of design selling better than the next, I was still surprised when all of the tiny, itsy bitsy notebooks sold out. What’s your preference? Large, can-only-fit-in-a-big-bag notebooks or small, pocket-sized jotters to grab and go?
You can still find a few of these at my handmade (one of a kind, mind you) stationery shop at Pulps of Wood if you bursting with ideas to jot down!
Paperman is produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and winner of the Best Animated Short at the 85th Academy Awards. ‘Nuff said.
Powerful and heartbreaking to think about at the same time.
In 1995, at the age of 61, American artist William Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. In response to the illness, the London-based artist immediately began to paint an ambitious series of self-portraits. From the time of his diagnosis to 2000, when he was admitted to a nursing home, Utermohlen created a powerful documentation of his painful descent into dementia as a way to try to better understand his condition.
I know, I know. I’m late with film Friday! I was actually up fairly late getting the screen caps when I decided that sleep needs me more. The reason that the screen caps took so long was the result of me wanting to capture everything. I think I’ve said this before – I must’ve…or not – but I’ll say it here: I love films that seems to effortlessly produce never-ending scenes of brilliant cinematography. So much so that I want to frame it and hang it on my overcrowded wall. That in itself, in my opinion, is half of what makes a memorable film.
Now that I’ve gotten my sleep and downed two cups of fresh juice I bring you, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, winner of the Best Animated Short at the 84th Academy Awards. Directed by William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, and produced by Moonbot Studios. “Inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books,” this wonderful 15 minute short centers on the whimsical journey of bibliophile Morris Lessmore’s discovery to the power of story.
