Another Year! At my day job I keep forgetting to save documents as 2012 and not 2011. Oh poo…

I would like to share with you a little project that came our way this holiday season. My good friend Adi and I worked on a window display for KIDS RULE Toy Store which just opened in the Wicker Park neighborhood. The owners wanted to show all of the educational and environmentally friendly toys the store carries. I have to say, I believe in the end we met the client’s need and made it look quite lovely….

Adi made the pretty snowflakes 🙂 And thanks to our friend Diana a.k.a. AztecSheWarrior for letting us know about the gig!

Another holiday project I finally took on was in regards to a co-worker and friend. A globe trotting attorney that is ever so dramatic and animated in all that he does, had been asking me for a crochet critter for some time now. He would often ask “Where is my little animal?!” So I finally made him a little animal that I think suited him perfectly!

At the time when the temps plunged I was walking to work and through my furry hat and scarf wrapped head, I peeped a cute chika type girl walking ahead of me. She wore a mustard colored hat and red eye glasses and was lugging a 70’s retro turquoise and olive green flower patterned suitcase. On her way to Union Station I’m sure, as it is right down the street. This is why I love bright colors. You just stand out in a world of glum.

Here she is Monstrochika style:

I recently picked up a cool little book that is helping me explore several watercolor techniques. I can’t wait to dive into all the neat projects it contains.

Lastly, I had some time to watch a few movies the several days I had off for holiday. I fell in love with these two foreign films. I highly recommend them 🙂

Heartbeats – French – Superb. Xavier Dolan is so beautiful.
Nights of Cabiria – Italian – Giulietta Masina is wonderful!

Until next time…
