DIY Jewelry Branch

I'm loving this DIY project- such a simple way to display jewelry- I was just looking for a way to display my necklaces.  Excited to go hunting for good looking sticks now in my back woods.

Introducing Art to Students

I found this amazing video- along with a great article about how if students are introduced to art at an early stage, the possibilities are endless.  Check out this very unique performance by Lil Buck and Yo Yo Ma.

I found this via stumble on mixing reality
where eco, art, trends & culture meet.

Japanese Summer Picnic

Every year it is tradition to have a celebration, get dressed up in a summer kimono, eat, dance, and be merry.  Of coarse there are kids games and musical performances.  In Raleigh, NC, the Japanese community gathers for such a tradition.  I love to see the modern clothing, handmade and hand-me-downs.
