Theo Jansen

Imagine walking down the beach and running into a large sculpture that can walk around and knows when it gets too close to the water! Theo Jansen is a kinetic sculptor who has created these  "animals" (as he calls them) from mere tubes and bottles. Animals that are practically able to survive on their own. His ultimate goal is to have them live on the beaches in herds, and with a little more evolution he is sure to get his wish. Check out his talk at the Ted Conference

Toot Toot ! Flower Shop Looks Dope!

For those of you who don't know me that well.... Here's a little fact about Ing.....I hate to toot my own horn. You see, I have a really bad habit of being down on myself and belittling everything I make or do. It's quite crippling at times because it doesn't allow me to work to my full potential. Thankfully I have a group of friends who are constantly there to encourage me and support me in anything I want to do. Sooooooo this one is for you all!!!

 I made this one :)
The Flower shop is finished and opening right now as I type this! Everyone INCLUDING MYSELF are all very impressed with how it looks! This time I have little complaints about the final product. I decorated the entire store with that "shabby chic" look in mind, helped merchandise it, and created the marketing materials including the logo. This was all put together in very little time with a small budget so I'm thrilled with how it looks! I wish much success to  the shop and I feel excited and confident in myself  and my skills which is most important!

Catching Up With Ing

Hi Everyone!

It's been a while since I wrote in this bitch! We have a lot of catching up to do! I have been a busy bee here at work since I got back from  vacation so I'm writing this in a bit of a hurry. * I got the chance to see Sputnik during my week off , I missed that little pussy so much <3 He's really  the most beautiful kitty in the world, hes charming as hell. I love my cat. He's also really happy running around outside in the wilderness. * The flower shop is almost open, people love the decor,  I'm hoping it's a success! Will post pics soon! * Halloween was nice, I didnt dress up but I did get to hang out with some really funny and amusing people. * Tanya left me alone too long (she went to NY) and I got bored and started to Tweeter, it's pretty cool.....follow me! ( love4ing ). * I got some cool stuff while in Fort Myers, which included a vintage style record player (which goes great with the decor in my apartment) , some vintage Xmas tree ornaments, and a deconstructed TV that Justin made. (See below) * Later today I will be blogging about HevyJ who is growing out his moustache for charity :) He's fluffy. More Later! Ta-ta!
