Celebrating International Women’s Day


needle felted cat

I made this kitty for International Women’s Day on March 8th.  She was a bit of a needle felting challenge– I’m not great with “sculpting” facial expressions, and I really wanted her to look strong and#BeBoldForChange.  I’m really happy with how she turned out!  She sits right next to my computer, so we basically hang out all day long.

I also celebrated the day by attending a rally in Washington Square Park with a friend and our babies.  They were so zonked by all of the excitement and passed out on the train ride home.  I snapped this beauty shot 🙂

And I recommend taking a minute to check out the Guardian’s International Women’s Day around the world – in pictures that shows celebrations, events and rallies around the world.

Want a slightly cheesy Monday pick-me-up?  I did.

Last week the digital-centric creative agency The Barbarian Group launched a new web tool best described as Chatroulette for smile snapshots.  Two of Us takes a photo of you smiling (you have to be smiling- it actually has facial recognition software that detects non-smilers) with your computer’s webcam and provides a stranger’s smile in exchange.  The whole process takes about ten seconds.

Here is my smile-for-smile.
