National Quilt Day & CAFAM

IMG_3879National Quilt Day  was March 21st, and I spent it at the Craft and Folk Art Museum falling in love with all these man-made quilts. And by man-made, I mean that quite literally: Every single piece was constructed by a contemporary male quilt artist, and these were NOT your grannie’s patchworks.

Inspiration from Ira Glass

I came across this inspiring little video shortly after the New Year and it completely blew me away. It features an excerpt from an interview featuring Ira Glass, the host and producer of the wonderful radio show “This American Life” on NPR.  In the interview, Glass offers up some sound advice for someone starting out in broadcast journalism, but his words will resonate with anyone working in a creative field.
