Oh Christmas Tree

Design     |    December 16th, 2015

This year, my Christmas tree decided to throw me a few curve balls. First I couldn’t find the base legs to hold the thing up. Then, after solving that problem by setting the base in a concrete filled paint can, the entire tree came crashing down on my head one night while I was putting presents […]

Ho Ho Humbug

Design     |    December 15th, 2015

Ever close your eyes to take a nap only to wake up in the middle of December? That is pretty much how I have been feeling lately. I only just finished celebrating the Fourth of July! How can it nearly be the new year?   Blame it on the warmer weather, chaotic work schedules or the cold […]

Instant Instax Displays

Design     |    October 29th, 2015

“But first, let me take a selfie.” These days we take more photos than ever before. With the help of smart phones and a constant need to be connected, we snap and share anytime, anyplace with seemingly anyone. Yet in the midst of all these captured moments, less and less of them are being printed […]

A Haunted Haven

Design     |    October 14th, 2015

Autumn is without a doubt my favorite time of year. After suffocating through months of sweltering humidity (thanks Texas) we are finally rewarded with cool nights, soft breezes and pops of orange and red among the treetops. Alongside the delightful change in weather comes the promise of the holiday season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New […]

Can Do, Ban.do

Design     |    March 3rd, 2015

My latest unnecessarily necessary purchase had me jumping for joy when I opened the box. Online shopping can be a bit of a gamble, but Ban.do did not disappoint. In fact I’m wondering how it took me so long to make the switch from admirer to customer. It all started with the watermelon purse. Technically a […]

Snow Daze Survival

Design     |    February 25th, 2015

Compared to the East Coast, Midwest and especially Canada, coastal weather is by all definitions mild. As a native Californian my idea of a snow day is a sunny Saturday in Tahoe sipping hot cocoa, hitting the slopes and finishing it off with a soak in the cabin hot tub. As such, the arrival of the […]

Gal/Pal/Valentine’s Day

Design     |    February 13th, 2015

  I’m going to be honest, I kind of like Valentine’s Day. However, my interest surrounding the day is not due to the pressure of a perfect date, with the expense and stress of gifts and reservations, but simply because it is so darn cute. Smack in the middle of February I frequently find myself succumbing to […]

It’s Raining Hard in This Abyss

Design     |    May 1st, 2010

The weather has been insanely bipolar today. Monsoon to sun to thunder to rain to sun…Make up your mind! I can’t figure out what to wear! Sooo…. Over the weekend my boyfriend and I went to Midtown to check out this little vintage shop he recently found called Crimson and Clover. About two hours later, […]

Time Flies

Design     |    April 16th, 2010

While putting away laundry today, I realized that I only have a little more than a month left in my apartment. I’ve really enjoyed my apartment, and can’t believe that I’m already at the end of my lease. At the moment I don’t know where I’m going next. My friend and I have been discussing […]

I Did A Thing…

Design     |    February 26th, 2010

Well. I did a thing. A thing my mom probably won’t approve of….I got my first “real” tattoo!   Here was the illustration for my tattoo. And a little stenciling progress shot. I think my face says it all! Big thank you goes out to my friend Chrissy for not letting me go all alone! And […]
