I woke up to the sounds of a hurricane.
I was in Queens with the Hubby, who was not my Hubby. Yet.
The intercom from the school was blarring:
"SCHOOL IS CLOSED TODAY."
I picked myself up. Dragged myself to work.
I had lived across the street from this place for years,
yet never ate there.
I wore a long black silk gown with high-heeled strappy shoes.
There were no limos idling on the block that night.
We were soaked just crossing the street.
I can't remember what I ordered,
only that there was warm chocolate soufflé for dessert.
2 hours later, we were back in bed.
Listening to the hurricane.

I'll be posting as soon as my box is sorted!
How was your holiday weekend?

2 years ago, I was hired by a coffee company to design some
I loved working on these... it was the kind of fantasy assignment
you get in Art School, but rarely get in real life.
Sadly, the project was killed.
Flash forward 1 year, and guess what?
A lovely client casually mentions that she might need a
custom label for a promotional chocolate bar.
A little client input, & the result was this:
Now, 2 years later, I needed to come up with a new design
I dipped into the chocolate again, and this is the result:
So, the lesson is:
1) Don't throw anything away.
2) If a great design doesn't get chosen, save it in an
3) Always give credit where credit is due.
Thanks Ms. Beautiful Things for that yarn pic,
which I *borrowed* from your flickr page.
(for a great cause!)
