Craft & Consumption

what's in a name

Part of the reason I didn't start blogging earlier was due to my inability to select an appropriate blog name. After tossing around some ideas with Mark, my novio, I finally decided on CRAFT and CONSUMPTION, which stems from my undergrad colloquim title (think thesis, but a bit less intense) that I just finished at NYU's Gallatin School. 

My colloquium delved into the history of consumption in America and the value of labor and craft. Liz Cohen's book, A Consumers' Republic, was a great starting point for my research. 

I expect this blog to reflect many facets of my life: from fashion, shopping, and CONSUMING, to cooking, sewing, and CREATING with a little bit of travel, personal history, and some humor thrown in.
