Live with Purpose

I love my new photoshop.
I've been sick, and spent my time cooking up a unique design for my alpha gams.  
Do you like?

Izze Floats

Tuesdays are my night to cook, and this week I made chicken curry on rice with fried plantains and pineapple.  
To top it off we had Izze Floats.
Try the Birch flavor---tree tastes derwicious.

Paracord Party

 This past Thursday I held my very first Art is for Everyone Tutorial.  I taught ten of the residents how to make paracord bracelets. 
Trying to corral and hold the attention of ten guys definitely reminded me deeply of the four and five year olds that I work with on Sundays, and we even had a little peanut gallery that stuck around to watch and comment.  
But after everyone dived into their own project and got braiding, they became quite absorbed.  
It was so rewarding to watch everyone chat, bond and make something together.
I threw out a few fun facts about Chinese knot-tying and the many uses of paracord.  
After everyone held up their survival bracelets triumphantly, we segued into an evening on the front lawn toasting s'mores.  
Overall, a really successful night.

Art is for Everyone--My Weekly Tutorial!

I've had several request from my lovely Tech buddies to do a "craft night."  .  
So I've started Art is for Everyone.  
I'm going to lead a project once a week and try to take us to some exhibits and show a few interesting documentaries.  

Moved In

Bad camera is missing in action. 
This will make blogging slightly for difficult.
If anyone is interest in sponsoring a little point-and-shoot, feel free to let me know!
In the mean time, I'm moved in to Atlanta and I LOVE it.
Since I can't show you my awesome decor, loft bed and sweet bunny rabbit and yarn holding miniature grocery cart, I'll leave you guys with an OK Go video.
P.S. My internship at the High Museum of Art starts this Monday!
