late post... colorful life

ok, so this post is pretty late. i was busy out of the office today, and has to rush home to upload images for poppytalk handmade. i'll send link on monday for my 'table'. pretty excited about this. cross my finger, this may be a good marketing for the studio! this blog is #7 in 50 of the world best design blog by times online. so... what does that mean to me? more exposure of course.

so to close the weekend, i usually like to post food things. but today i still feel very colorful and in a non food color way. then i found this fun photo on flicker via one of my favorite photographer.  but, let's not break the tradition, and here's Chocolate Torte, Caramel Ice Cream and Chocolate Shorbet from Tartlette, the place where i always go to find wonderful recipes with equally beautiful pictures.

happy weekend all!

Holiday Promo

a couple of weeks ago, postcards were sent to the people on my mailing list. what supposedly a simple project, made complicated by my printer refusing to cooperate. i blamed it on the sometime cool and wet, sometime dry weather, making all the papers funky. but, all's done, and now i'm in the middle of other projects. and this what i love to make me warm (inside and out) while working.

happy friday all!

curl up and read

it's been really cold where i am, i'd love to take a break and curl up with a good book. this past summer, penguin has republished its classics with wonderful book jackets designed by Ruben Toledo. while one shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but isn't it wonderful when the cover is just as fabulous as the words inside? i especially love the pride and prejudice cover, and it is my favorite book of all time.
