I decided to do the Sunday postcard challenge this week. The theme is celebration, so I did a New Year's Party Hat. I have actually made a hat too. There are two of them for Valentine's Day in my etsy shop.
Also, last week I went and bought a couple of books. This one is called "The Savvy Crafter's Buide to Success by Sandra McCall and I got the Vanity Fair coffeetable book too, which inspired me to go to LACMA and see the show, so my mom and I did that. It was so much fun.
The show and the book has 100 years of partraits of moviestars and writers that contributed to the magazine. The show had some video too that was really cool. Here are a few of the portraits.
The Gish sisters, 1921.

The Albertina Rasch dance troupe, 1927.

Kate Moss, 2006

and Hollywood Issue cover 2008, Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, Jessica Biel and Anne Hathaway.
Also I made this heart for a heart swap on Mail Art World and.....
last but not least, I got these at Anthropologie at their sale. They are Christmas Oranaments, but I think I'll make pins out of them. Stay tuned. Well, that's what I have been up to, how about you. Let me know.
