Opening Tonight - Double Punch

We made it to San Francisco after many flight and train delays (which equals aprox. 14 hours of traveling instead of about 6..!) But we made it just in time for an opening tonight at Double Punch in North Beach, featuring work by Erik Otto, John Casey, Parskid, Justin Lovato and Jon Vermilyea. It looks like it will be a pretty great show, and honestly, you can never go wrong with a trip Double Punch.

Jimmy Longoria

Today I had the pleasure of meeting local artist and community advocate, Jimmy Longoria. We've been working on a project with him for the past few weeks - which perhaps I can get more detailed about at a later date, so it was pretty great to meet him in person and see some of his work up close.

Jimmy does a lot of mural paintings around the Twin Cities, so perhaps you already know his work with out realizing it. But for those of you who haven't seen, check it out below. (*images from artist's website.)

Ok, so, I guess I'm not as good about daily blogging as I had hoped, but I also figure, if I'm out enjoying life, why should I stop doing so for an obligatory post about how much I'm enjoying life? Anyway, I'll make up for the last couple of days now.

Thursday was my good friend AJ's birthday. A few of us got advanced screening tickets to see the new Frost/Pegg movie, Paul. I had no idea what the movie was about going into it, but man was it awesome!

The trailer doesn't even begin to show how funny the movie actually is. Which, I suppose is a good thing so you don't see all of the jokes and then the movie is spoiled. All I can say is, if you enjoy crude humor and laughing your ass off, do yourself a favor and go check out Paul - in theaters March 18th.

On Friday, both AJ and I had the day off, so we had a friend day-date/Friday Funday. We ate lunch at The Local where we stayed for probably 2 hours just chatting and enjoying each other's company. Then we hit up a bead store so I could get more supplies for jewelry makin', and as I know AJ had a blast waiting for me to pick out beads and things, I made it up to him by taking him to a comic store afterward. Later we headed back to his place and I got my fill of some Little Big Planet 2, the best game since... Little Big Planet. (jk, jk)

Yesterday I helped out my friends at Letoile by doing some fit modeling for an upcoming magazine they're doing for MN Fashion Week. It was pretty casual and we were done in just under 2 hours, which then gave me plenty of time to make some more new jewls before I headed off to another friend's birthday party.

So today, after several days of birthday drinks, and jewelry making, and driving all over the city, I am just hanging out watching season 2 of CSI. A much needed break if you ask me. It's nice to have lazy days, especially when it's about 12 degrees outside anyway..

Well I'm off. This week I'll make sure to do a better job of keeping up my end of the bargin about blogging daily.

For the past couple of days I have been busying myself with making lots of new pretties to add to my collection :D. I took a couple quick snapshots to show what I've been up to. I'll take better shots (with natural light) and update my etsy soon - hopefully this weekend. Ahhh, productivity is good.
