what’s the rush

allo all~how’s votre vie? summer in july, hmmm i know you’re having fun!

all’s well here but it’s mostly work work work. i love to decorate but haven’t done anything radical in awhile. so i picked up a shower curtain and flowers and even though it’s kind of phoning it in, the little change makes me really happy and feels like i accomplished something creative. i highly recommend it if you need a little lift!

you know i always put the creative stuff last, how can i enjoy myself when orders need tracking?! but i’m finally understanding that the ‘to do’ list will never be finished so i’m picking my battles and not trying to cram it all into one day. meanwhile good things are happening including a new book contract! i’m leaving for france in a month to work on it and travel with my beautiful family.

to get ready i’ve been shooting and organizing stuff for okl and taking photography classes. i asked the universe for a financial wiz and it threw the perfect right-brained person in my lap so we’re setting up quickbooks before the trip.

i decided to stay in my apartment for the next year and watch the building go up outside my window. i’ll be in and out a lot and it is a fascinating perspective.

anyway, that’s the bulk of it, guess i wanted to explain why i’ve been a bit MIA lately. i’m going thru 10 years of photos to get ready for the book. to take my mind off work i’ve been playing with this mesmerizing new app. check it out if you LoVe animated gifs!


and since i’m also working on revising and updating my own app,  i’m working with this great company that sources odd techie jobs. you post requirements for anything you need web-wise and people who know how to do it respond. it’s like magic! very handy if you need a staff at your fingertips.


well i better go if i’m going to catch any good tv. hope you have a great night, sweet dreams!
