I feel like 2010 has been on fast forward. Lists are getting longer, promises are getting bigger, deadlines are becoming tighter and I haven’t had a real day off in over a month. And naturally, spending most of my waking hours in front of a computer each day doesn’t make for a very compelling Week in Pictures. In lieu of showing you photos of me totally glazed over, sitting in front of a screen, I thought I’d share my just cleaned office. On Monday, I’d had enough of clutter, piles and dust and went on a mad cleaning and organizing spree. It was worth it. Already, I feel much more focused. And, it had been beautiful and sunny nearly every day. Hello, Spring!
The larger painting is by my brother and the smaller one is by Joey. The oversized A is from a vintage Honda sign. My brother bought it from a a crazy hoarder who lives with his mother. I was more than happy to inherit it. Most of my furniture is from IKEA and Target. Some people organize their books by color…I do the same but instead with my shoes. Eventually, I would like to refinish my floors and make them black and distressed. My bedroom is across the hall and done in the opposite color scheme; all black with white trim. Yin and yang?
The always inspiring Kristin Cofer sent me a stack of the business cards that I designed for her earlier this year. They are mini squares and so cute! The backs are reversed – white with black type.
I love getting surprises in the mail! Swatch sent my brother and I some watches as a thank you for taking part in their Colour Codes campaign. There’s something so timeless about their style. I promised to share mine with Joey since he’s totally Swatch-obsessed.
I ran into fellow design acquaintance Jason Miranda on Monday and he gave me one of these super cool screen printed invites for the launch of his agency, Overhaul. Stop by on First Thursday and check it out!
Until next week,
