so i have a confession, i have kind of a sick weakness for the sitcom king of queens. i know. i don't know what is happening to me, unemployment may be the death of me. i don't know what it is. i just get this sick purge of joy when i see it's on the cable guide in the early evening. i'm not proud, but i just needed to get it off my chest. ok, phewww.
perhaps i can redeem myself w/ the following...
about five years ago i contemplated opening a store. i had a few vendors/artists/crafters that i had my eye on that had not been saturated in the san francisco area. one of those artists/crafters was this one woman show susie ghahremani who's company's name is boygirlparty. she had these adorable little pouches, w/ cut out circles w/ an adorable litle drawing. it was the beginning of the diy craze, and these were so well made.
anyway, needless to say my store never came into fruition for many reasons. however, susie's art has taken off! her style is sweet and colorful, w/ a broad range of browns, greens, blues and yellows. she has a passion for animals, including bears, owls, cats and her favorite, finches.
this saturday susie has her first solo show at giant robot in nyc. it looks like it is going to be a great show! she will be there for the opening and there is a mention on her blog of perhaps giveaways! if you aren't able to make it to the show, be sure to stop by her shop. i just purchased a sweet little tote for the sum of $10! which is an absolute steal (even on the non-existant budget of the unemployed! no coffe for a week!) from such a cutie. also, it's in my favorite color...navy.
i sent susie an email yesterday asking her if i could glean photos from her sight and she responded instantly w/ attachments of photos of the actual show. i was so touched at how down to earth and cool she was. this girl is definitely one to keep an eye on.
here is the postcard for the show w/ all the details.
