Updates! News! Events!

I've said it before & I'll say it again, the continual support for Handmade Nation has and will keep blowing my mind. I just spent the last hour updating the screenings for the remainder of 2010 and into 2011 (ALASKA!!).

This summer has been good to me with a full 2 months without getting on a plane, but now things are picking up and I realized I know what I am doing every single day through January. The three main things that I am focusing on right now aside from programing surrounding Handmade Nation along with promoting the empowerment of making are:

#1 My gallery Sky High, specifically the upcoming Pop-Up Boutique I am curating from October 15- December 31 2010. I have artist Sofia Arnold in there right now painting the walls with her beautiful magic to set the tone for the shop. It's gonna be rad.

#2 My new documentary, Sign Painters: Stories from an American Tradition. I just got back from Syracuse filming artist Steve Powers and his crew painting 3 train trestles with their community based messages.

#3 Art vs. Craft is quickly approaching. I can hardly believe it, year number 6. My baby is getting old.

As I mentioned at the beginning of summer, I am phasing out this blog, if you want to keep track of all my madness do it over at

Ta-ta for now lovelies,
