fun : a few favorites
Hi Everyone -
Thanks so much for the nice words about our art board and the suggestions! As hard as I try to resist it, I'm really one for order and embrace the grid, which is reflected in the board. My Mom was the opposite and loved things that were asymmetrical. Over time, it might be nice to expand beyond the board to make the display a little bit spontaneous. I'm sure I'll show you ;).
Something else I worked on this week was my desk calendar (see in the picture above). I picked one up from kate spade and made a book cover for it with a pocket. I used an 18"x18" sheet of Martha Stewart craft paper, but can imagine using the comics, wallpaper, graph paper, glassine, or anything you like. Maybe some Japanese tape? It was pretty easy and can be changed, anytime. The pocket is really handy and would be great for schoolbooks, too. I'd really like two pockets, but my paper hasn't been long enough for the extra folds, yet.
Hope you enjoy today's favorites. We'd like to do something fun this weekend to make up for the last one. Any suggestions? Have a great weekend!
Blog : Very Short List always has something very interesting like the flight of this paper plane from the 31st floor.
Music : Spy for Hire is an up-and-coming band from Atlanta with a fresh, appealing sound. Their first album, Speak In Numbers, is due to be released on February 27th.
Phone : Gelaskins liven up select phones, iPods, and laptops whether they be tired or just don't speak to the real you.
Read : A Person of Interest by Susan Choi is the first novel I've been able to read in a long time. This beautifully-written and compelling story is about the suspicion that surrounds an Asian-American professor during the investigation of the death of a colleague following a Unabomber-style attack.
Stationery : The ringlet jotter from SusyJack* is perfect for me because it's small, looks neat, and if I mess up a page, I can remove it. So far, so good.
