I hope you had a splendid weekend. My poor husband is so sick. He got some sort of flu bug. I’m just taking care of him and trying to stay healthy. So we just chilled over the weekend and watched movies and played boggle when his head was not spinning. Hope your weekend was healthier but equally relaxing.

geek chic: part 4

Not sure if I count these Chanel glasses as geek chic but I love them and I guess since they are thick and black rimmed they’ll work for this series. She looks so lovely. The second photo is definite geek chic style. I want to go to Berlin to visit the Bilderklub people and see more stylish people like this girl:

Geek chic take 3: glasses made of tape and more more pretty girls in specs

Rachel Griffin
Perhaps, I should make my geek chic glasses out of tape so that if they break I can repair them without changing their aesthetic!? I love Rachel Griffin‘s glasses via It’s Nice That.

Oh here’s another glorious example of geeky glasses. I’m coveting them so badly. I love this photo. She looks so fabulous. (Again) I found it on vi.sualize.us via strawapple on livejournal. Here’s the definition of Geek Chic on Wikipedia.

I hope you had a splendid new years celebration. I look forward to getting back to regular posting on Monday as I near my surface pattern tradeshow. I’ll be posting some of my new work. So stay tuned.

I’ll try to stop posting pictures of girls in glasses, really I will. Maybe just a couple more, but not for a while. Back to art and design, I swear.

here she is again….I do love this shot.

Happy second year Maquette (free downloadable thank you card)

Thank you card for Maquette readers

Yesterday Maquette turned two! It’s been anything but terrible. I started this blog to share my work, other artist’s and designer’s work that I find inspiring, fashion/style plus other interesting tidbits of eye candy. In the process I’ve made some amazing blogger friends who make up a wonderful community plus real life friends whom I’ve met simply through shared passions. Maquette has become a really wonderful place for me. It motivates me both to find inspiration in the world and to produce work I’m excited to share with you my dear, loyal readers.

So today I share some posts from my archives and a free downloadable card for you (just click on the card above to go to my flickr, then download at original size). I want to thank you so much for joining me here each day. I really love this place and appreciate your readership and support!

Please enjoy the card yourself or feel free to download it and send it to someone who has supported you or made you happy in some way! (It’s so hot here in Brooklyn, I thought I’d make a super summery card for you).
