Welcome to The Week In Pictures! Ah man, it’s been a looooong week. I was doing trend research for five days straight which sounds like a blast (endlessly perusing the interwebs!) but when there’s deadlines and a detailed strategy involved and you hit hour ten of sitting in front of the screen and your eyeballs feel like they’re gonna pop out of your head, the initial excitement evaporates. Definitely gotta recharge and refocus this weekend and get in some family time. My work / life balance has been super off lately and it’s time to remedy that.
I just picked up a bunch of new design books, a few of which include how to build portfolios (both online and off). I built mine based on my own research at the time so it will be interesting to see how the strategy in these books potentially differs. I know that for many of us, portfolios are always a work in progress so I’ll be reviewing these in future posts.
Sweet little Rocky is always so patient, lounging while I’m working. He’s quite the cuddler, too (shhh, wouldn’t want to wreck his tough guy reputation. After all, he’s named after the Rocky).
There’s beauty everywhere around us. Ever since I got Instagram, I pay more attention to the little details.
Bianca always gives me a good laugh. It’s hard being so far away from so many of my close friends but chatting about past presidents and their jaunty attire cheered me up this week. Bianca’s hash tag for presidents she’s madly in love with: #forefatherwood
On March 22nd here in Portland, it snowed. SNOWED. Everyone was tweeting me, going “It’s 80 degrees where I am!!!!” Go ahead, rub it in! Haha. Come on, Spring! I’m off to finish a project that’s been trailing me now for months and get in that said family time. Have an awesome weekend, everyone!
