- I’ve been a bit absent from Black Spoke this year. Running a business when you are inspired by/drawn to other mediums can be tricky. I’ve decided that it is ok to pursue other creative endeavors, rather than choose one thing. Here’s what I’ve been doing lately: TRASH ART.

- MANY MOONS is a cool spiritual workbook by Modern Women that aligns you with the lunar cycle. The first 2019 volume hasn’t been released yet, but keep an eye on their website, or your favorite local witchy store to get your hands on it.

- Vintage clothing is the best, but even those that have worked in vintage and studied clothing history (like…ahem… this gal) need help with research sometimes. VINTAGE FASHION GUILD is my main go-to resource with all sorts of information, including the incredibly helpful “Label Resource” that helps to determine era based on designer labels.

- I started eating a vegan diet nearly a year ago (I know, I know… a vegan leather worker, what?!). I couldn’t have even thought of trying this lifestyle without raw cashew cheese from PUNK RAWK LABS.

- The Devo episode of 99% Invisible is 100%!

Here is some cool stuff I came across this week:

-I'm absolutely obsessed with this cool way to discover new music.  Every Noise At Once is a genre map that introduces you to bands in that genre, affiliated genres, and links in with your Spotify account.  I'm in love!!

-This church makes me wish I was a skateboarder.

-I'm getting ready to move in with my boyfriend, so I've been pinning home ideas like crazy.  We bought paint yesterday: black, grey, and white... obviously.

-I remember hearing about BioCouture a couple of years ago, so I was really excited to find this recipe for Microbial "Leather".  I'll be experimenting with this for sure!

-You've gotta love a gaudy suit.  Nudie Cohn, the rodeo tailor, made the best, craziest suits, including Elvis' iconic gold lame suit.

-Ash from the Middle Finger Project tells you how to "stop writing with a stick up your ass"!

-This breaded tofu is sooooooooo gooooooood!

-If Picasso was a tattoo artist, his work would look like Peter Aurisch.

 

Have a great week!
