I live in the Triangle Area of North Carolina, in case you didn’t know, which is basically the area surrounding the Research Triangle Park. Raleigh is one of the points of the triangle.
I explained all that to say that I went to Raleigh last night in my first ever official appearance as the Pintester for the NCMA Pinup (a meetup for Pinterest nerds). The artsy fartsy part of the evening was a tour of the Edvard Munch exhibit. (It’s pronounced “Monk,” guys, so stop tittering in the back, there.) Also, I thought I didn’t know who Edvard Munch was, but we all know who he is. He did this.
If you want to be real creeped out, you can either read about the Slender Man trope (don’t say I didn’t warn you), or you can go see the Edvard Munch exhibit at the NCMA. Creepsville. Creepytown. Horror central. OMG. I’m gonna have nightmares.
It was wicked cool.
Anyway, after that we all drank wine and did crafts. Munch-inspired crafts.
It was like all the best parts of kindergarden, except with wine.
I decided to try my hand at a celery rose.
After I practiced, of course.
The NCMA kindly provided greeting cards for us to stamp our artwork on. So now I have a greeting card.
I can’t think of a reason why I would mail this to anyone. It doesn’t really lend itself to any specific message, except maybe, “Congratulations on your menses,” or something. But here’s the deal. Give me a reason why I should mail you this card, and leave it in the comments. I will pick a winner based on the reason I like best (so, basically, it depends on what mood I’m in) and then I will write in it and mail it to you (or to the person you think needs it). So hit me in the comments. I’m looking forward to it.
Thanks for a fun event, NCMA, and a special shout-out to Meg (pictured below in the bangin’ blue dress, trying out a Munch-inspired letterpress) for alerting me to the event!
