Pretty hyped about this review in Nylon that just came out. Pretty bummed that I am going to save a copy of a magazine with Paris Hilton on the cover.

Nylon Magazine Review: November 2008
Last night was the official book release party in Milwaukee and it was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came out and picked up a copy. We would also like to say a big thanks to Cafe Lulu and our sponsor Lake Front Brewery for their support as well as Chris Schulist who played an awful lot of sick jams. Thanks to the ladies who drove from Chicago as well!!!!

Today my interview for Milwaukee Public Radio was on Lake Effect. A big thanks A BIG thanks to Paul over at Lake Effect for doing the interview which aired this morning on WUWM, you can listen to it HERE.

I also received my issue of Craft: 09 in the mail that has the very first article I've written for a magazine in it.

Craft: 09

 I wrote about Cream City Ribbon, a local (Milwaukee) company that makes cotton ribbon for the "Green Craft" section. Photographer Kevin Miyazaki (who also happens to be the photographer that took my pictures a few weeks back for my feature in Readymade Magazine) took the beautiful photos that accompany the piece.
