This week in Austin, SXSW is in full-swing! I probably won’t make it for most of the festivities, but there are always a few that sound too good to pass up. Last weekend, for example, John and I made our way to the Gaming Expo at the Palmer Events Center. Check out photos from that day and lots more of my weekly inspirations below!
I liked the design this game had at their booth. It’s a puzzle app that actually seems kinda neat.
I got really nerdy and excited when I saw people playing on this Giant Settler’s of Catan board. Remember the photo I shared of my friends and I playing last week? Apparently a fan of the game made it, and let the makers use it for the Expo. Now THAT is some dedication to Catan.
Here’s John trying out the Oculus Rift. (It’s a virtual reality headset for gaming)
This weekend, the Renegade Craft Fair will be taking over the Palmer Events Center. If you are in Austin and you love crafts as much as I do, you have to check it out! I can’t wait to see what kind of creative and beautiful stuff will be there.
Guys, did you know there is a whole series of novels about quilts? I saw this at the bookstore and the cover caught my eye. Seems kinda cheesy, no? But I love quilts and I love books, so maybe I’ll have to give it a chance.
Speaking of books – this month my book club is reading Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. Not gonna lie, it’s been tough. I’m struggling to keep up with what’s going on, so I’m anxious to talk to my book club ladies about this one.
