Crazy times this weekend. I missed Ellis G.'s opening party but I popped by today to snag some photos. At some point, I want to check out the photo exhibit at the New Museum. I'm brainstorming new ideas for sewing projects and I can't wait to pick up fabric. Plus, Victoria's home from Senegal! We had a reunion that involved brunch, 40s, and hilarious storytelling. (When Lynnese is involved, you know it's a good time.) Now it's time for a Monday update with all the latest news.
FIRST THINGS FIRST: I'm going back to CT, so we're having a party next Wednesday (August 5). If I've written about you, published your pieces, or piqued your interest with my posts, definitely stop by for a drink. I'll be at Art Bar from 7 p.m. onward. Connecting with people is what this blog is all about, guys! Hope to see you there.
