Taking Stock

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.

I don’t have any fun pictures to intro this, so we’re just going to jump right into the list:

Making: cupcakes in the morning!
Cooking: Nothing at the moment, but I made this for my mom and sisters earlier.
Drinking: water.
Reading: Seveneves by Neal Stephenson.
Wanting: to go to sleep.
Looking: at my laptop screen. Yes, I have a working laptop now!
Playing: with my sister’s dog Suri, lately.
Deciding: what to do about a certain situation with a client.
Wishing: that I could just make things that people would then buy, instead of having to work for clients.
Enjoying: being near the lake here in SC.
Waiting: for my sister’s A/C to be fixed.
Liking: going giddy over baby stuff with my mom and preggers sister.
Wondering: if I will rock the drive back home like I did on the way out here. Driving powerhouse!
Loving: my sister’s baby bump.
Pondering: why some people are the way they are.
Considering: business direction things, always.
Watching: lots of HGTV lately.
Hoping: the baby shower is a hit this weekend.
Marvelling: at how tiny newborn clothes are.
Needing: to write some blog posts for next week.

Wearing: PJs.
Following: Google Maps a lot in the last week.
Noticing: that I have a scratch on my leg from playing with the dog.
Knowing: that I still have some heavy life and biz thinking to do this year.
Thinking: that I am awesome at wrapping presents.
Admiring: the gas mileage on my car. This roadtrip really put the new car through its paces, and it did awesome.
Sorting: all of the nephew-to-be’s baby clothes by size/age! SO cute.
Buying: some crafty stuff for the baby shower.
Getting: tired earlier in the evening since I’ve been here.
Bookmarking: stuff for next week’s Tuesday Treasure Trove.
Disliking: how easily one client email can stress me out.
Opening: lots of new browser tabs.
Giggling: during time with my mom and sister.
Feeling: pretty good right now, tiny bit of stress, and very sleepy.

 

How are you doing lately?

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. Making: a new cover for Pride & Prejudice over on my design blog. Cooking: Nothing at the moment. Drinking: Sweet tea. Reading: The Children of Earth & Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay. Wanting: to get a new laptop (I don’t currently have a functioning one). Eyeing this one. Looking: out the window at the rain. All rain all week in the forecast. 😩 Playing: not much of anything lately, other than fetch with Sienna. Deciding: whether and where to go on vacation later this summer. […]

2016 Clear-Out Sale!

shop clearance

I’m still figuring out what I want to do with the Dragonflight Dreams screen printing shop this year. But I know one thing for sure: the one of a kind shirts need to go. They are great- bright and colorful, and an important step in my shop-running process. But they’re also taking up valuable shelf space and shop space. All of the OOAK shirts (tanks, tees, and long sleeve) have been marked down to sale prices. They are already printed and heat-set, so are ready to ship. AND, as of today, you can take an additional 16% off with code […]

5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. In October, after my name change and all, I re-launched my design business with a new focus and new name. It’s Studio Guerassio, and I focus on design & branding for the lifestyle sector (food & drink, writers, artists & makers, culture, events, balance & wellness). I’d like to ask a favor of all of my lovely readers: if you know a business owner or blogger or solopreneur who fits that focus and is in need of design work, please send them my way! I’d be über grateful. 🙂 2. Random thoughts on film and TV: I was browsing […]

Finally Hitched: Wedding Pictures!!

Guerassio-Cobb Wedding

Not quite 2 months ago, Ian and I finally tied the knot! 😄 We were married at Villa Antonia here in northwest Austin hill country. After having nervously watched the weather for two weeks, September 20th dawned bright and beautiful. We had gorgeous weather that somehow managed to also not be too hot for the non-Texans attending. Our ceremony was outdoors under an arch, overlooking the rolling hills. Our reception was indoors in a lovely space that included a stage and built-in bar. Both were the perfect size for our relatively small wedding of 65 people. Ian and I were […]

32 Before 32

32 Before 32

As promised yesterday, here is my new list of goals that I hope to accomplish before my next birthday. On a sidenote, I might be getting old enough that I need to do like a half-age before age kind of list (i.e. 16 before 32). Or else fill it up with really easy things. To be mulled on for next year. Now, in no particular order: Go to a design conference. I’ve been to a blogging conference, and a freelance conference, but not a conference specifically for design. Staycation or vacation with Ian. After the wedding and honeymoon this year, […]
