Thursday’s #Child has far to go…. #PeopleAreNeverJustNumbers unlike #Public #Transport & if you’re not sure where to take a #Ride - #Baltimore have made it obvious. Comprised of three 14′ #Typographic #Sculptures that literally spell out the #Word on the #Street for #Passengers looking to get from #A2Zen. 
#BUS is made with #Wood & #Steel, materials that are typically used to #Build today’s #Urban #Furniture. The three letters of BUS are big enough to #Accommodate two to four people each & #Protect them from the #Elements. They allow people to assume different postures of sitting or standing & a #Novel #Leisure #Space to keep the #Kids occupied while you wait. The #BusStop was unveiled last month by a #Creative #Design #Collaboration between Emilio Alarcón, Alberto Alarcón, Ciro Márquez & Eva Salmerón, who have been designing public spaces in Madrid since 1998. This is their second project in the United States.

#Creative #Inspiration good enough to eat….
If you’re in the area there’s something a little different going on down at #TheCornershop -19 Wellington Row #London & all this month the store is open every day from 10am to 7pm

Now you too can get felt up by the #Local #Knitters on the #Street at the cuddliest shop in the #World 
#LucySparrow’s Cornershop is an #Art show worth making a fuzz about, its the fluffiest, furriest #Shopping #Experience imaginable. She’s filled a former derelict store in #BethnalGreen with over 4,000 #Handmade felt versions of familiar #Grocery items from the weekly #BigShop - from fish fingers, cans of beans, newspapers, #IceLollies, oven chips, #Beer, ciggies, veggies & your favourite #Chocolate bar for that #Sweet tooth 
Every single thing inside the Cornershop including the till, the functioning pricing gun, the contents of freezers, the pick ‘n’ mix stand, is all completely #Fashion(ed) from #Fabric & the whole lot took Lucy 7 months to complete. All her highly huggable versions of everyday #Life essentials are for sale, but will stay in the store for a month, during which time a variety of #Sewing #Workshop’s will take place, #Designed to engage the local #Community (particularly those with autism & those who are often socially excluded) in relatable, accessible art that’s relevant to them & their #Neighbourhood & it has been brought right to their doorstep. #PeopleAreNeverJustNumbers & you can sign up to these workshops in the shop & group workshops for charities can be arranged through Lucy. The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Council, Tower Hamlets Council & Kickstarter & the event is sponsored by Swizzel’s sweets

#Summer #Inspiration that’s #CloseToMyHeart (or at least to my degree) 
If you’re local or in the area this month why not go to #BregenzerFestspiele (#BregenzFestival) a #PerformingArts #Festival which is held every July & August in #Bregenz, #Austria.
Founded in 1946, the festival presents a wide variety of #Musical & #Theatrical events in several venues. My #PersonalFavourite is the #Seebühne (or floating #Stage), with 7,000 seats, its the location for large #Scale (Mmmmm) #Opera or musical performances on a stage over #Water on the shores of #LakeConstance. The Operas or musicals on the floating stage generally tend to come from the more popular operatic #Repertoire, but they are without doubt some of the most #Creative, #Original & #Innovative #Productions, frequently using the waters of the lake as an extension of the set #Design.
Recent productions have included #Aida, #Tosca & #Iltrovatore 
#Music to my #Eyes….
#DontSayINeverGiveYouAnything Daaaaarlings

1: Never make a #Product just because you think it will sell, always do your #MarketResearch first - #PeopleAreNeverJustNumbers THEY are #Make or break!.
2: #Invest only in #Technology that can #Evolve for your #Brand & not expire a year after launch.
3: We all buy #Solutions to our #Lifestyle needs, so clear your mind of those #Concept’s that do not fulfil a specific #Function.
4: #Innovation is the key driving force, never give up.
5: Don’t throw your #Ideas in the bin without accessing possibilities. No matter how small the component is, be free in your #Creative #Exploration & remain open to a detail that has future #DNA #Potential. #Business is all about striking the right #Opportunity, if it’s really #Cool, it could still be incorporated another #Time - #Archive it.
6: Timing is everything if you want to out #Perform the #Competition.
Do not bring products to the market until your consumer is well aware of it’s #Existence, otherwise you will end up #Educating the consumer & someone else will cash in with a more developed product & a newly enlightened audience, courtesy of you!

#DontSayINeverGiveYouAnything #Creative to do

Tonight at participating #Cinema’s around the #Country there is an #Exclusive #BehindTheScenes guided tour of the new ‘#HenriMatisse: The Cut-Outs’ #Exhibition in #Glorious HD. #TheTateModern’s must-see #Matisse exhibition offers a once in a #Lifetime opportunity to savour this #Icon of 20th century #Art’s final triumph. When ill-health prevented Henri Matisse from #Painting, he began ‘carving into #Colour’ by cutting into painted #Paper. In doing so, he succeeded in creating an entirely new medium. Now 120 of these dazzling works have been collected from around the #World for this acclaimed exhibition. The eye-popping treasures on display range from snow flowers to dancers, circus scenes and Matisse’s famous snail. This #Unique cinema event offers an intimate and informative tour of the exhibition in the company of #Tate Director #NicholasSerota and broadcaster #FrancineStock. In addition to the extraordinary #Artworks, it features interviews with experts and friends of the #Artist, plus #Rare #Archive footage of Matisse at #Work.

#UKWeather #Rains supreme but at least it’s good for the #Garden eh!
The #Alfresco #Home can sometimes feel like high maintainence for the less #Green fingered of us, #RainyPots combines #Form & #Function with less #Nurture but plenty of #Nature
#PracticalMagic that brings out the #Kid in us all & keeps the #Plants #Happy & #Healthy in the process. When plants #Grow indoors, they often have weak & shallow #Roots #WeAllNeedSomeGreenStuff but sometimes they suffer because we either forget to #Water them or we overdo it. #Creative #Design thinking by #SeungbinJeong means Rainy Pots take the worry away. This little invention just requires you to fill the cloud & then it will distribute the water slowly in droplets as nature intended 
It’s also #Fun to watch

#ItsNotTheDestinationItsTheJourney to #TheEnd of the #Factory #Line

#Easter #Weekend #DIY #Inspiration for your little #Bunny #Girl
#DontSayINeverGiveYouAnything #Creative to do #MotherNature 
For this #PracticalMagic you will need - 2 #Fabric’s of your choice, wire, wire cutters, scissors, sewing machine or a good #Hand stitch in #Witch case #Patience too
(Don’t look at me!, I’m nearly 100 years old, as it is)
Step 1: Cut out 2 strips of fabric, 1 out of each #Colour, approximately 2” width & as long as the fabric goes. The above was 48” long.
Step 2: To form the #BunnyEars, cut the edges into a point. Starting about 6” below & cut to the middle of the edge.
Step 3: #Sew the 2 pieces of fabric together leaving a 2” gap at 1 end.
Step 4: Turn it inside out & press with an iron (Again don’t look at me! - #Eye have no #Idea where mine is).
Step 5: Insert a wire that expands the length of the band. Curl the wire in at each end so that it’s not sharp & #Evil (we’re not #Making a crown of thorns - that’s next week (grin))
Step 6: Close the gap by either hand #Sewing it or with a machine.

Tadaaaaaa

#PracticalMagic - How to #Make #Recycled #Crayons
#WasteNotWantNot #Art brings #Colour to #Life 
All you need is - 
The broken or worn down crayons
(Peel off the #Paper)
And a #Decorative ovenproof mould 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius.
Chop crayons into small pieces with a sharp knife and keep the colours separate if you don’t want to #Paint a #Rainbow when you get #Creative.
Fill mould with crayon pieces.
Place in oven to melt for about 5 - 7 minutes. Take out as soon as all of the crayon pieces are melted, otherwise they could burn and we don’t want any #Kitchen #Drama.
Then allow to #Cool to the touch and place in the freezer for about 10 minutes before use.
