I'll always remember what Alumni Curator Michelle Ward said about the creative process ... that it doesn't have to be minimal nor epic for it to be valid. It simply needs to be expressed. So whether it's a small bracelet or a large sculpture, let's make art!

Love this simple bracelet tutorial by

I am a sucker for the color blue.


This flip-book by a fantastic fair-trade company defines my style perfectly.


For me, art is about these moments, and all the others in-between.


Andrea Tarling Guest Curator
From a very early age I can remember going to flea markets, antique shops, and thrift stores all the time. We would go in search of things for him to create with - from making jewelry to crafting clocks, my dad loved to create. I am sure that's where my desire to search for treasures and to create came from ...
Flea market finds
that inspire.
  I love her style and blog.
I am her biggest fan.
  A world of colors.
