Outdated, old fashioned, a giant hassle- many words and phrases that come to mind when considering wallpapering vs. painting a room. Believe me, trying to change wallpaper is NOT a simple project for the antsy decorator who loves to change room decors per season. Still, if you're ready to make a semi-permanent decorating decision, then wallpaper is a funky and fun way to make a potential accent a major part of the decor. The Curiosity Shoppe has a new book out all about your options and project ideas! Wallpaper Projects by Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith is available now in a 144 page hardcover edition that's chock full of amazing projects involving wallpaper, not always on walls! Pick one up if you're ready to take the plunge...

Born Ugly mag

Holy cow. What a week. Things have been absolutely insane for me, so TGIF to the maxxx! Still, a bright spot in the week came from the news that Issue 1 of Born Ugly mag is now a reality! Jim Callahan (aka Barf) is already a Richmond underground icon with his memorable Municipal Waste art, Nowhere Skateboard line, and Tales from the Underground comic (check it out at Velocity- best place in Richmond for your comic and graphic novel needs). The link above is to the online .pdf of the mag, so be sure to snag a print copy wherever you can. Michael Brock of Wilted Roses was kind enough to pop one in the mail for me, so whenever I get that will be a happy day. If you're in the Richmond area, be sure to get to the launch party tomorrow, Saturday May 9th at Holly Street Park at 4 pm. I'm sure it will be a debaucherous event filled with only the finest of Richmond's youth!

North Park Festival of Arts

Come one, come all to the 13th annual North Park Festival of Arts! Sunday, May 17th between 30th and 32nd Streets from 10 AM to 6 PM will be you, your family, and 35,000 other people enjoying the arts, culture, and entertainment in this creative hub of San Diego. Unfortunately, I'll be returning from Las Vegas that day, so I'll miss out on the fun, but don't let my absence deter you! There will be artist demonstrations, animals for the kids, a variety of international food booths, and best of all, it's FREE! In this economy, anything free is welcomed and should be enjoyed to the fullest.
