great outdoors

We finally got outside today after too many days spent indoors. We visited our old neighborhood out by the ocean and walked around Sutro Baths and Land's End. They are sprucing things up around there, which, I guess, is good to see, though I missed all the overgrown underbrush and maze of trails crisscrossing everywhere. Some parts of the cliff trail are still as wild and dangerous as they ever were with 10ft high fennel and worn footpaths that lead to secret clearings under the trees. All in all, it was a good day.

change is good

So my last day at my old job came this week and I felt that I had to post a little something. I was there for a very long time and I would not be the person I am today if I hadn’t spent so much of my adult life there. It was hard to say goodbye to the people I really enjoyed working alongside (tears!) but I am excited for my new job and new opportunities. Over the last few years I have seen many of the people that I worked closely with go on to great, new things. And now it’s my turn. These days, since we spend so much of our time working, it’s hard not to think of co-workers as some kind of extended family. You share time, dreams, successes and failures with them. As much as you may want to stay close, it’s often difficult to do. I still see some folks and I wish I could see the rest more frequently than I do. Just know that I think of you often. Here’s just a tiny, tiny fraction of the folks I have met over the years.

almost ready...

Spent the last couple weeks getting my stuff ready for the little show in LA at The Harmony Gallery. I made lots of new things for the show and it's certainly been hectic. Hectic but really, really satisfying. I attempted to document all the work with my camera and/or scanner. I still need to get a macro lens but I guess that will have to wait for the next round of work. Tomorrow I will ship everything and I am sort of sad to say goodbye to all my creations. They are like little babies that you fuss over and then may never see again. I hope that they all end up in good homes. :)

dream come true!

So I made it onto design*sponge , which was one of my secret dreams, thanks again to my friend Chris . I didn't even see the post, which went on line Friday, until this morning. When I did I nearly fell off my chair. I love this site and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my name and my work there. I am truly, truly honored.
Some of the pieces she showed in the posting will be available at the show in LA in a couple weeks (see my last blog post).
