Weave stops bullet!!

BY Laurie in General

A Kansas city woman has her tightly woven weave (I mean God) to thank for saving her life. Apparently her boyfriend shot at her and luckily her weave stopped the bullet. 'I've invested a lot of money into this weave and it saved my life.' Now that's what I call a good hair day. Read More
It reminds me of this guy standing around me here... Whenever I hear this song I think about my roommate Ian! He rules and his band is playing tonight at the benefit for Swoon' s next project, which I wrote about here. Read More

Mmmmmmm Ward.

BY Lisa in General

I've always been a fan of this Portland, OR, based crooner's scratchy voice and rockin' piano/guitar skills, so getting to see him last night at the Apollo (not nearly as big as it looks on TV! Who knew?) was nothing short of awesome. He played a few slow jams by himself, opening with the title track, 'Hold Time,' off his brand new album, then rocked out with his band and even brought a few members of Brooklyn Americana crew Oakley Hall out on stage (loved those ladies' harmonies!).

Make Tomorrow Epic.

I was out of commiss last weekend with the flu and vertigo, the flu is on its way out but no telling about the vertigo. It seems like it is getting better, or maybe I am just getting used to it.

Half-Birthday Knits

    We thought the embroidered grocery bag craft in our Feb/Mar issue (above left) was totally genius. Well it just so happens that Jennifer Reichert, the bag's designer, has many more tricks up her sleeve. My favorites are the custom knit portrait totes she makes (like the one above). Amazing! And if you love that grocery bag but just can't find the time to make it, you can get one right from the creator herself, just check out her Web site, Half-Birthday Knits, for all the crafty goodness.
