Holiday Alternatives and Celebrating Handmade

Lot’s of Holiday stuff going round like this very fun article this morning on 7x7SF , San Francisco’s Best Handmade Holiday Markets.  Have I mentioned how great it is to support artists by purchasing handmade gifts this holiday season? Well – it is important. Trust me.

 This photo of Coney Island on the Minagraphy shop is stunning…and curious. Doesn’t it look somewhat like you are looking at a miniature world with tiny people?

A snowflake tree. Via Pinterest from Masha. Charming…and…well….hopeful.

Mr. Art Planet is a little unsure about alternative Christmas Trees. Maybe he should see this post from Apartment Therapy of other DIY trees. Genius dammit!

Save December 10th for an artists reception at Hammerfriar Gallery in my most favoritist place (is that a word?)…Healdsburg, CA. Featuring the creative talents of eight artists. 5-9 pm.


Via Little Constructs…the animated and slightly cryptic work of My Dead Pony. Yes…that is what it says.
