Hearts for Haiti

Hearts for Haiti, beautiful papier-mâché hearts by West Elm. I couldn’t help but sharing this morning.

Handcrafted by the artisans of Caribbean Craft, an artisan’s collaborative in Port au Prince, Haiti, these whimsical ornaments make a bright, festive statement suspended in multiples in a window or displayed in a bowl. Best of all, 10% of the proceeds of each sale goes back to the HAND/EYE Fund to benefit the artisans behind the hearts.

It’s free shipping, too, I might buy few… and send my hearts to Haiti…

Found type: AAF

I stopped by the Affordable Art Fair last Friday to see Tomoko real quick. We didn’t have much time so couldn’t see much, but of course, I found some cool work with typography.

Live With Art It’s Good For You poster — this was a huge poster! Oh, how I adore wood types… I want to try the background printing like that, too…

I must admit that I am drawn to paper cut work a lot these days… this was so sweet :) Made my heart warm…

Collage Art by Violet May

I came across these great collage art work by Violet May when I was looking around UPPERCASE magazine tumblr pages (filled with great imagery!) and I was immediately so in love <3 that I had to share.

Slash :: Paper Under the Knife

After the Easter Sunday brunch yesterday, we went to Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) to catch the last day of “Slash: Paper Under The Knife” exhibition I’d been wanted to go… and I am SO happy that we went. I was blown away with all the amazing work all made out of papers! Really incredible work. Very inspiring. We talked about making something with papers for our new loft space even… :)

MAD is in Columbus circle. Cool building. It looks like a letter “H” now I look at the pictures I took :)

Exhibition information in front of the building.

Here are some sneaky iPhone photos after listening to the cellphone tour…

More information about the exhibition is here and if you have a chance, please watch the video on the page, too…

Hope you had a nice weekend… let’s have another week filled with inspirations!
