Wash Basin.

Moroccan tile backsplash and an above counter sink. I’ve just started to notice wall mounted faucets. I think they’re quite fun.

I Want to Ride My Bicycle.

We’ve got just over a month to get our design submission in. We’re aiming for the Future Masters design competition by Artsy Dartsy and IDS West. If we get selected, we’ll get to have a booth at IDS West in September! Last night we brainstormed over crustless quiche and a bottle of J Lohr. I think we have something pretty great. Becky and I are on the same page when it comes to design. We’re aiming to create something that is simple, yet so much better than what is currently on the market and to do so at a price that is affordable.


It was kind of crazy how quickly we came up with the idea and it just snowballed from there. Now we have to get busy on building it.

I am thrilled to be starting my 2 restaurant shifts a week this week. Those 8am-11pm days killed me. They were especially bad having them back to back… now I only do ONE long day a week (Fridays), and I get to sleep in the next morning.

My drafting class has picked up the pace and we’re now doing 3-D perspective drawings. You wouldn’t believe the number of guidelines that have to be drawn to produce a perspective drawing. I literally start to go cross-eyed after a while. I’ve decided that if I have to do manual drafting, I might as well make it fun, so I started designing for fictional clients. Last assignment it was Don Draper’s bedroom and totally Mid Century Modern. This week it’s Princess Jasmine’s living room- I’ve been collecting a ton of Moroccan-style images as inspiration.

And now I am all excited to bring it to life.

…And last night this popped up in my new feed on facebook:

I “liked” Sun Select Produce on Facebook and was entered into the contest, and I won the nicest bike ever!!!

I couldn’t even sleep last night, and this morning felt like Christmas morning. I can’t wait to meet it!
