Upcoming Events and Magical Menorah’s

Don’t miss the Factor XX upcoming event at the Museum of Los Gatos featuring an amazing array of very talented women including Jenny Balisle, Nancy White and Lea Feinstein.

The show opens from December 9th thru January 21st.

****Did you know: •There are 80 percent female students at the School of Visual Arts. But in the real world, there are 70-80 percent of male artists in galleries and museums.

Thanks to I Am will Vincent for being a total smart-ass and to Erin at Design For Mankind for showing this on her page. I just had to share this too!

***I think I’m going to create a Shits and Giggles section.

I found this very cool, very hip and very modernistic chic Menorahmodern menorah apartment therapy over at Apartment Therapy. Love the minimalistic take on an ancient tradition.

Feeling like a scoundrel? if so this print Kate Banazi will fulfill your scoundrel tendencies. Pocketful of Scoundrel is a hand pulled silkscreen limited edition print. Sublime……

So far I have seen Pantone mugs, Pantone books and now Pantone gift bags? Pantone gets around that’s all I’m saying. And from 1973 (wow – long time ago) a bag…for me you.

Join us for the 5th Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Sale in Chicago on December 4 + 5, 2010, from 11am – 7pm at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse (1419 W. Blackhawk)!

And now – a recipe for Sweet Potato Fries – cuz damn I LOVE these!!!


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a plastic bag, combine the sweet potatoes, canola oil, taco seasoning, and cayenne pepper. Close and shake the bag until the fries are evenly coated. Spread the fries out in a single layer on two large baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until crispy and brown on one side. Turn the fries over using a spatula, and cook for another 30 minutes, or until they are all crispy on the outside and tender inside. Thinner fries may not take as long.

****Happy Friday….have fun….keep warm unless you are from the other side of the equator – in that case I’m jealous.
