Brooklyn Lyceum 08

Who doesn't like the squeel and bloodcurdling scratch of chalk on a chalkboard? Not us. We love it.

We were thrilled to participate in the first annual Holiday Craft Market last weekend at the Brooklyn Lyceum. The weather was freezing , the roads were ice but there were plenty of folks who turned out to see what all the excitement was about. As an added bonus our space had a chalkboard mounted behind it. Chalk broke, dust flew, and our pants were covered with multicolored silt.

You can view photos below- right after you go out in the hall and clap those erasers.

Somewhere, beyond the sea...

In an attempt to make all of our dedicated readers here at the Product Superior blog tense up and sweat with barely restrained anticipation we have decided to post up some sneak peaks of the in progress artwork for a forthcoming line of nautical themed mini-posters. All will be 8" x 10" print size and will no doubt appeal to sea lovers, sea haters, or those who like the smell of the fisherman's wharf after dark.

Sleeve Notes

As we get deeper into the holiday season, the ever-growing To-Do list and Other Tasks, get difficult to organize. Among all of the things I'd love to be doing for Product Superior, there are gifts that must be purchased and wrapped for friends and family, greetings that must be mailed, trees that must be decorated, ornaments to be hand painted, and sweets that must be baked—all of which I also love doing. I know I'm leaving something out here, but you get the point. Which is precisely why, after reviewing more of my photos from DC, I found the perfect solution. Check out this shot I took of the SR-71 pilot suit, from the National Air and Space Museum (Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center). While I would imagine that remembering to "Enter the Raft" and "Secure Gear" are significantly more important than remembering to mail my holiday cards ON TIME, I do nonetheless think the placement of the reminder makes for a great solution to all of my various scraps of paper. 

Now, if only I could have all of the High Priority tasks sewn on my sleeves and look equally as cool and graphic—as opposed to just crazy.

American History Museum

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we took a drive down to Washington DC. The main mission was to finally see the American History Museum—which after having been closed due to renovations for 2 years, finally reopened. I'm being a bit ambitious, but I hope to have a full review posted here soon (we weren't too pleased), as well as photos from our visits to the National Air and Space Museum (Steven F. Udvar Hazy center hangar and from the National Mall space), Arlington Cemetery, and the U.S. Botanic Garden. HOPE. Please be patient—I alone have about 700 photos to go through!

For now, here's some photos John took.

Pencil Inspiration

Whoa! Check out these super neat pencils I found on this blog called Pencil Talk. As usual, I'm not sure how I wound up on this site, but am certainly glad to have made the discovery. You'll notice it's been added to my "Curiosities" links list.
