I love Zara. The next time I have a little money to spend, I’m going to order a few pieces. Although, shopping online never seems to work for me. And no, I don’t know why my “dots” look like “commas.”

Hello pals, readers, friends and family! I’ve changed the look of my blog a bit. Now you can tweet out my posts, contact me through a contact form and hopefully comment a bit easier. I wanted something more flexible & interactive (and pretty soon I’ll be adding my portfolio to display within this site completely). Hurray for everything in one spot! My RSS feed and all that jazz stays completely the same but if you’re reading this in an RSS reader, you probably can’t see the lovely new design, eh? If you notice any kinks, mishaps or weird errors please let me know by commenting or emailing me! It’s all a work in progress. Keep your eyes out for more writing and a few fun features coming up soon.
I’m currently collaborating with Rachel over at Hounds in the Kitchen. We’re creating her soon-to-be-amazing logo and for payment? Local goodness for the next five months.
I recently came across The Burning House and I was instantly sucked in. I clicked, read, and soaked in all the posts in one sitting. Anyone can submit their photo/illustration to depict exactly what they would take with them. The site explains,
“If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”
“My house burned to the ground in 1977, lost everything. I learned that material possessions are unimportant. However, in a pinch I would take the hard drive and Horus and leave everything else. Am about to get a safe deposit box to keep an extra hard drive in so I would just take Horus and come back and dig the tektite out of the ashes. Word to all the folks with big piles of stuff: You have way less time than you think.”
Makes you think, huh?
Would you do me and my friend Elizabeth a favor? Would you vote for our logo? If we make it into the top 5, it goes to a panel and we could win 3 months worth of local produce! You can choose to give us 5 votes per email address and voting ends on Wednesday. We’re in 6th place so please help bump us up to 5th (or heck, even 1st!).
I love Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams‘ new website design. If you only visit Columbus to experience Jeni’s…it would be worth it. You can also buy pints and get them delivered to your door! My new favorite seasonal flavor is Rhubarb and Lime Cardamom Yogurt.
A day-to-day look at what I do everyday. I go to work (not pictured) I workout, we make dinner, I sit at my messy desk and design. Oh and I get to hang out with the cutest pup ever. I have about 10 shots left on my Canon A-1. I’ll probably get the film developed on Sunday or Monday. I can’t wait to see how the roll turns out!
