This weekend was a pretty good one. Friday went to a hip bar downtown to see a reggea band, Down Loa. good time as usual.
Saturday, some friends came over to Garr’s and we cooked a huge breakfast and watched Alabama beat Tennessee’s ass. I couldn’t believe it, but it happened. afterwards met my folks and fam on the Quad for some drinks and football celebration. although football is not my bag it sure is my families’. I retired early saturday which was fine with me.
Today was the Kentuck art festival, which I was looking forward to for a while. and it was even better than I imagined. There were so many artists, I’m sure I missed many booths. A lot of things were overpriced but I got a few cute trinkets and art work. We met some crazy hippies that were pretty famous around the art community that were very kind people. Here is what I purchased today:
the ‘peace’ cards are so adorable, not ment to be sent (I asked, haha) just to tuck in a gift. I bought the 5 pins from the same girls. can’t have enough buttons!! yeehawindustries.com
This is a poster I bought from this crazy man who has a huge wooden press and makes all kind of prints. He even let us use an old fashion print press to print the Kentuck logo on our bag. So cool. kennedyprints.com
This is the FRONT of a screen-printed journal my boyfriend bought me. standarddeluxe.com
this is the BACK of the journal. can’t wait to write in it.
so sad the festival is over, I wish I would have gone both days. oh well there’s always next year…
as for now, Adobe Illustrator homework is loudly calling my name.

I love all your purchases! Have you been to Stilettoheights blog? I think you’d like the stuff she makes/sells.
Sounds like you had a fun weekend. Me too. I went to see Spoon. They’re great live.

Her stuff is awesome, as it turns out I discovered her work a few months ago. We must have similar taste! Do you have a blog?
