some photos ....
meet hubble, my other boyfriend. he's wanda's puppy, a standard poodle, and i'm lucky i get to spend my workday with him. he likes it when i dress up and wear pretty clothes. i took him to get a haircut a while back, and asked them to style him a moustache since he's quite debonair, like a british man with elbow patches.
school has been nutty lately with unfortunately late nights and many long 21 hour work days. it's strange. i'm in a supposed creative field, but i'm left with so little time to act upon curiosities... there is no time to read, or to seek out subtle inspirations.
i'm close to the end and i'm thankful for that since i have a hard time finding the right balance between working obsessively and living out life.
i took tonight off and was reminded of how good that is. went out for korean with wanda which was lovely. also had a long and lingering bubble bath and am now about to hop into bed with my laptop to watch a movie.
but i'd be interested to hear if you have any tricks at finding a manageable balance between work and the rest of life. please share if you do...

don't consider myself to be the craftiest of people, so i'm pretty excited to show you this! it's a gift i made for luke for his birthday. bought the antique flask (supposedly from WWII days) at a flea market and then made the leather cover to wrap around it. think he liked it!
happy birthday, leah! miss you terribly... here's us dancing with the strange heads. remember that?
i'm such a dork in this picture (caught with pursed lips and fingers snapping again)
but you look cute, and it's your birthday, so there!
love you, love you!
had a meeting with my academic advisor today. she reminded me how important it is to be artful and open in the application of design since i sometimes get frustrated at how flat and linear it can be. she's 100% wonderful and a complete inspiration.
i have the first day off in a long long time ... it's sunny and i'm going out to wander.
on the hit list: a crisp fall bike ride to the park, a good meander through the bookstore, the search for a record or two, a small trip to sephora (always good therapy) and then perhaps a little (just a little) work to cap it all off...

oh my word.
found this photo my sister-in-law took of my adorable niece eira (in the pretty pink princess costume) and a few of her halloween buddies. how funny is it that they are all propped up against the wall like that! too much...
