Don’t you love rediscovering things that you already own? I bought this red cross glass five years ago but never used it. It’s the perfect addition to my desk and adds a dash of Swiss-inspired design credibility (as it happily resides next to my Helvetica Moleskine).

The bookshelf directly behind my desk displays my favorite shoes. I’ve been snapping a bunch of photos of my office in its current state because it’s about to get a major shake-up.

On Wednesday, my friend of 10 years met me on Hawthorne for treats and window shopping. It’s always nice to reminisce with someone about the dreaded high school years you shared together.

The Bagdad Theatre on Hawthorne has one of the coolest signs in Portland…

Nothing beats getting a box full of amazing surprises in the mail, shipped all the way from Australia! Amelia Aresenic definitely did her homework and deserves major points for including an Andy Warhol card, a lips-shaped couch magnet, a pile of faux pills, a super cool pill keychain, one of the albums that she designed the artwork for (in red, black and white, of course) and best of all…A MINI MICHAEL JACKSON BOOK. The fastest way to my heart, hands-down is to give me something Michael Jackson related.

Pretty awesome, don’t you think?!

This book is an absolute must-have and has basically turned into my bible over the last few weeks.

How was your week?





About Image: Red Cross

One of the self-initiated projects that I’m currently working on is a PDF document that’s an introduction to my brand, blog and design services that I’ll be sending to potential clients and advertisers. My personal style is usually pretty minimal so it’s fun to push the boundaries sometimes! I wanted to skip the typical About page and to instead create a graphic that represents who I am with a handful of stats, quotes and a photo all set inside of my favorite shape. If you look closely, I made sure to sneak in my shoe size, birthday and a list of my favorite things!
