{Music Monday} Shine…

This new song from Benjamin Francis Leftwich feels good to me today. I always love the imagery & lighting in his videos – they calm me down & fuel my imagination. I’m trying to chill out before I brave the post office – I think this did the trick. Besides, it’s a good holiday wish, don’t you think? Happy Music Monday!

{Everyday Inspiration} Kiel Johnson cardboard love…

Holy Moly- aren’t these unbelievable cardboard creations? A friend told me about this post over at Odette Manon & it blew me away (thanks again D!). Then I checked out Kiel Johnson’s website & was hit over the head with his brilliance. I highly recommend taking some time to cruise through it – this post barely scratches the surface of his projects. I particularly love his videos by Theo Jemison too! 
Hope you are having (or had) a wonderful weekend. Did you make anything cool?

{Music Monday} Bright as Yellow…

Sayer & I are hoping to relax a bit & maybe read a good book on this holiday Monday (ok- so maybe that is my hope- & it will be after playing fire station of course). It’s a yellow sort of day… sunny, happy, & full of promise. Happy Music Monday! How are you spending your holiday?

{Music Monday} Angus & Julia Stone…

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m sometimes drawn into a song or a musician by their videos. This would be one of those situations. I’m loving these Angus & Julia Stone videos! Sayer can’t get enough of the first one- he particularly enjoys the little elephant that is walking on the guitar. Happy Music Monday

{Everyday Inspiration} Inventive fun!

I’m such a sucker for creative & inventive videos. I just saw this wonderful little short on the quirky collective facebook page & had to post it. So much to be inspired by- textures, shape, imagery… the list goes on. What a perfect video for a Saturday full of party preparations! 

We are getting ready for Sayer’s 3rd birthday party today and there’s lots to do to get ready. His birthday is on Tuesday, but his Aunt & Uncle are coming this weekend for a mini slumber party with him and he is REALLY excited. We are on our way to pick up balloons & party hats! What are you up to? Hope your weekend is just what you need it to be…

{Music Monday} a cold december…

I know I’ve mentioned that I’m a big Matt Costa fan. But I’ve recently discovered that Sayer really likes his music too.  Whenever I listen to his music on my computer, Sayer runs over to see the videos to the songs. I really adore Matt Costa’s aesthetic in his videos. His imagery is always creatively wonderful & inspiring. As I mentioned in a previous post, I really respond strongly to his process of writing songs too. While Sayer likes all of them that he’s seen, it’s the Cold December video that he wants to watch over & over again – it’s a definite favorite.  

Can you see why? Trains, snow, & guitars are 3 things that he finds interesting right now. But maybe it’s more complicated. Just maybe he is noticing the compositions, palette, & mood that I love so much. Either way, it’s a nice break from Dora the Explorer. Happy Music Monday!
