hello and happy sunday guys! hope you’re winding down a great weekend. it’s been a day of rest around here and that was both needed, good and lazy. best of all i had time to surf and started looking through the day’s loot. you never know what you collected till the end of the session and see it all together.

a board of my own

hey guys, happy sunday. how’s your night shaping up? it was an early am at mac again. there’s so much technology around me right now that when i got the bulletin board after class, it was a relief knowing it would only involve paper, scissors and pushpins. i really had no idea how much i’d enjoy making this mood board today. putting it together with the stuff from a file box that’s been in storage for so long was a great meditation.  it was a pandora’s box of pretty things that had been stashed far too long. i could probably make a board a day. i may take the whole thing down and make another tomorrow! if you have favorite tear sheets in folders, break them out and enjoy them. it’s really therapeutic. and i think it might be good for us. i was just looking up mood quotes and found this:

Any art communicates what you’re in the mood to receive. 
Larry Rivers

so there’s that. well have a great rest of the night! if you have a mood board, let me know and i’ll link to it!

putting it down on paper

slimpaley.com

hi guys, my head and heart need a little distraction tonight. usually it’s florida that fights the hurricanes but tonight it’s the rest of the coast. it’s so much easier when you have to face something rather than have family and friends deal with it. i’m praying for their homes, trees, coastlines and cities and safety.

well, said distraction resulted in skimming mood and inspiration boards. i brought home a giant file box from storage today with clippings, magazines, business cards and notes from trips to paris over the years. it’s finally time to put it together in a book of favorite places and things to do.

tomorrow i’m getting a huge cork board (or two) to start laying it out. i’ve tried a million ways but this visual and tactile method (rather than scanning, having tons of notebooks or keeping it all in a file cabinet) seems to make the most sense. what am i keeping all these papers for if not to see them?

so prep is starting for the trip, i’ll be there through september so this morning went to the mac store to learn about imovie. now taking and editing videos is not such a mystery. i’m gonna try to post to my youtube channel every couple days. more on that as i practice. i’m waiting for a maison objet press pass cause without that, no footage. if you know how uptight they are at the fleas, imagine the show!

as far as the trip goes, i’m going to mostly write and focus. i’ll be covering the maison for lonny magazine’s blog so taking good pics and turning in comprehensive and valuable work is priority.

so is really understanding my camera. lots of learning curves.

well, these boards kind of helped me meditate on what i need to do and hope they gave you a little kick too. do you keep one (or a few) for inspiration?

it really doesn’t matter how small the sentiment, you just have to start somewhere.

by the by, i had the pleasure to spend another day with renee and was surprised and thrilled when joni webb  of cote de texas walked in the showroom! you may know her fabulous blog and spirited discussions on all things decor.

as blog acquaintances we had lots of preconceived notions about each other but felt like old friends once we hugged. she’s one of those people you feel like you’ve known forever. hope i do!

ok, all well, happy saturday, bonne nuit and prayers for our peoples!
