- Fun-A-Day! From the Art Clash site: "The premise is simple: pick a project (take a photograph, make the bed, draw a picture, bake a cake, etc), do it every day in January, then show your work the following month in a big group show." Love it. (via SquidWhale, who plan to do show gouache paintings inspired by cheater quilt fabrics for Fun-A-Day)
- I'm so excited about Introvert Power. I found it through Cary Tennis's column, and half-heartedly read the intro, thinking, I don't need someone to tell me it's okay to be an introvert. Um, yeah, no. I do. I love this book so far.
- Redskins tight end Chris Cooley throws pots. He has his own kiln! I was thinking I wanted to learn how to use the wheel -- this is clearly a sign.
- Have you tried 'A Sip of Tea?' Nine questions from my personal practice to help you ease into the New Year. It's free - have a taste.
- I'm soooo much looking forward to having (virtual) coffee with two new clients next week. There are still a few spaces open for 'That Thing You Love, in 2011,' if you're hoping to move your project forward in the New Year. See if it's for you.
- In 2011, Tara hopes you craft what you need -- stability, flexibility -- whatever. Those are some really good wishes.
- Did you know that you don't actually have to look for the silver lining if your 2010 just sucked? Listen to Fabeku.
- Briana wrote this fantastic post on her Secret Play Date, sewing and scribbling. Realizations ensued.
- And speaking of Secret Play Date, are you ready for the Society of the Secret Play Date? We're dating. (Okay, I stole that joke from Havi's tweet.)
- In the EU, works by artists like Dan Flavin and Bill Viola are officially electrical devices rather than art, and are thus subject to a much higher value-added tax (20 percent, as opposed to five percent for art).
- Kylie put a ban on acquiring new books in the New Year, and then looked around to see what other new things might not be needed in 2011. And Pace says no new info products for a year. You?
