For everyone out there looking to get me something truly special this holiday season, may I suggest the work of Amy Sheridan of Santa Maria, California?
Right now, on etsy, Supervelma is offering up the gift that keeps on giving. Upon request, she will hand-stitch your favorite Kanye West tweet, frame it in a 5"x7" frame, and ship it to you in about two weeks.
Really, though, Kanye's just saying what we're all thinking - who amongst us hasn't lamented the inability to procure a decent cherub-decorated rug or, at one time or another, needed to apologize to Taylor Swift?
I decided that my favorite Kanye tweet needed to be immortalized in thread.
The original piece was Kanye's airline water bottle complaint - http://supervelma.tumblr.com/post/11141991734/of-course-i-decided-to-embroider-my-favorite-kanye- (the pieces pictured are sold, you'll be getting a brand new one, made just for you), but if there's one you like more than that, I'm happy to make that - just include a link to the tweet, or the text of the tweet in the "Notes to Seller" at checkout, or include it with your paypal payment, or email me at supervelma [!at] gmail.com
Here are a couple of her previous stitchings:
If you've been on Twitter for a decent amount of time, you are most likely familiar will the brilliance of Mr. West's tweets. Although he has become quite infrequent with his musings in the past few months, if you go back a little while you'll find a treasure trove of genius. From his personal experience with ninjas to beef-flavored pineapple, Kanye was one of the most fun people to follow on Twitter. And I say this with all sincerity, it was a treat.
In honor of Supervelma's project, I thought I'd revisit some of my favorite Kanye tweets of yore. Maybe I'll get one hand-stitched. It would look fabulous perched atop my mantel.
Why don't they make Macbooks that get online like the Ipad... that's some bullshit man
I meant to capitalize Christ ... fuuuuuuck I'm going to hell now... lol!!!
Room service uuuuugh! I hate when I order fruit and I can taste the other food they cut with the same knife. Beef flavored pineapples
Man ... ninjas are kind of cool ... I just don't know any personally
Fur pillows are hard to actually sleep on
Rumor has it she might just stitch your favorite tweet, even if it's not a Kanye tweet. Discounts are available for people wanting a set of three or more tweets.[Hat tip Boing Boing]
