(looking for chocolate chips at Safeway) Man: That’s a beautiful bracelet you’ve got there. Me: Oh, thanks. Man: You know, the cost of 14k gold has increased significantly. Me: Yeah, I’ve heard. But this isn’t real gold. It’s just costume jewelry. Man: Oh, well it’s still beautiful. By any chance would you be free tomorrow night for dinner? Me: Uh,...

Mouth full of Words
The company I’m at is in need of a part-time Interior Designer/Consultant so, I’m currently responsible for reviewing all cover letters & resumes. Today, I receive a 3-page long cover letter in which I actually read, word for word (I don’t have much on my plate for today and well, it’s a Friday. Let’s see what this cover letter is all about). One of the mind...
It’s only awkward if you make it awkward.
clientsfromhell: Client: I like the design, the logo and the photos… but I’m really not crazy about the color scheme. Me: Okay, do you have some colors in mind? Client: No. But I want it to look like black and white… but in color.

Also, saw some preliminary designs - F/U to that too.”
My ears can't get enough
My heart smiles when I hear Chantal Chamberland’s La Mer :) Guess I’m starting off my day with good energy.
Feed my soul with passion and I’ll be fine Into the depths of solitude where rain is captured & voices whimper Let love, devotion, hunger, and zeal chase me in this darkness For I will no longer feel lost in this passion pit so tender.
Brimar Inc. introduces Platforms Hardware...
Funny how a little bit of new hardware can excite me x) At work I received my catalog for Brimar Inc’s Platforms Collection & I can’t wait to propose this to potential clients. I usually stick with very traditional, ornate, and chunky estate traverse rods because my boss is European and he will always push for traditional designs however, once in awhile, we’ll get some...
Amazing Packaging Designs
Packaging designs can be insanely fun & creative, that’s why I adore these featured designs (see link before for all 10 designs). Sometimes we try to over-analyze by creating these complex concepts in our heads however, great inspiration and ideas come from the product itself. It’s so clear to see. I love the simplicity and frankness of each one. The Anti-Smoking packs are...
How to stay in love
Hug once a day. Kiss before bed. Say ‘thank you’ for dinner. (I need to illustrate this when I get the chance.)
“Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.” -salvador dali I’ve always felt that nothing is an original. We continue to be inspired by those who came before us or simply, the world around us. Inspiration is where you find it such as in an emotion, in nature, a color, or in a predicament. It’s everywhere and it’s endless.
