Decal headboards are fantastic. They’re inexpensive. They work well in small spaces. And they’re very low-maintenance, requiring no dusting or vacuuming the way conventional headboards can. Decal headboards come in a variety of colors. This post highlights decals in black or gray so that they’re easy to coordinate with colorful bedding.
Roppongi Art Night
What a night. They turned the entire neighborhood of Roppongi into art galleries, museums and theaters. Too bad we didn’t get to witness and experience the disco at a cleaning service shop -It became overcrowded and they had to shut it down,- though it was definitely worth going. For more pictures visit my flickr.
Uninvited (Alanis Morrisette) cover by Matt Cardle. This is probably one of the hardest songs to cover but he and his band mates nailed it.
Guilt is cancer. It will confine you, torture you, destroy you as an artist. It’s a wall, it’s a black hole, it’s a fucking thief. It’ll keep you from you.
Yes! it’s about time.
I’m making a prototype for a book which will be the final product of a service we are currently building. I’ve been working way too much on a computer lately and I really missed working with my hands using materials that I can touch and feel. For a person who was already using nails and hammers like a pro at age 3 in order to make a pair of bamboo stilts called Takeuma in Preschool, it’s like a torture if I don’t get to make things on my own.
The whole process forces me to be meticulous and keeps me thinking to collect idas for a better solution. But no, I’m not a perfectionist like I used to anymore. I noticed I wasn’t having fun when I’m caught up with the idea of making things perfect. I enjoy having a little blemish I call “humor” in art and design. Of course you have to be careful if it’s actually a good intention to show it at that particular spot or not. You just have to experiment and share with people around you to get the sense of it.
While I was having fun with the cardboard and glue, I blasted this mix and it was very delectable. When you listen to good music, or when you make yourself surround with good stuff, your day suddenly lightens up and keeps you in a better mood even when you feel like you’re having the worst day ever. Chocolate is good, but music always works best for me. Just like The Desier Map taught me, Feeling good is the primary intention.
Isn’t that just the prettiest sight.
Blood Oranges are in season right now and this is a fun way to use them. For more photos and directions check out my post on Better Homes and Gardens.
