i managed to haul my butt out of bed on a sunny saturday morning and hightail it on over to the ferry building to have a etsy meetup & coffee with beth (etsy admin) and a group of local etsians.
after the meetup, me and nadine (theseawithin) headed over to the east bay and went to explore ikea and the east bay reuse depot!
i found a mail box which i immediately had to have. here in sf, we dont really use mail boxes, our door has a mail slot and thats it. so ive always wanted a classic mailbox. i was happy with my finds, and it was a little bit of a drag though, once i realized i would have to carry it on bart and muni, but i managed with my handy etsy tote.
then it was onto the screening of the 1000 journals documentary. i had heard about the film a year or two ago, and was excited to be able to finally see it. it was a very moving and many interesting and funny stories emerged in the film. what was even cooler was that after the show - someguy - who created the project brought out some of the journals from the project and we got to page through them and add in our own words and art.
note: pages of art done by various participants in the 1000 journals project. the journals that someguy had were not completely filled up yet.
