Before & After 01

As many of you know, I am meg-less this week...so in order to quickly pass the time I decided on Saturday to visit a local flea market and check out some furniture pieces that could use some repairing. I've been interested in the practice of repairing for a little while now but haven't had much time to pursue any more reading or writing. About four months ago I came across the
Repair Manifesto and that is what sparked my interest. So here is my repair 01. It is not a huge transformation but it was an enjoyable first attempt. I'm not totally sure what my plan is for the pieces I repair, but if your interested in them -- shoot me an offer and maybe we can work something out. Stay posted...repair 02 is almost complete.

Don't you mean "Speed Bump Ahead" Correction!

After being informed that there was a difference between a 'speed bump' and a 'speed hump', I did some more research and found out that speed humps are often implemented as a 'municipal solution' where as speed bumps are used in a more residential/private area. (www.trafficlogix.com) Also, the dimension for a speed bump is around a foot wide where as the 'hump' can range from a few feet to as many as 14 feet. Very interesting. Thanks to Josh Taylor, www.makeseriously.com, for pointing this out -- now instead of cracking up in the morning, I try to guess how wide the hump is. (ha).

Don't you mean "Speed Bump Ahead"?

Every morning when I arrive at work I pass the sign that is pictured below. I never paid too much attention to the wording until the other day I realized it read "hump" instead of "bump". I'm pretty sure in Ohio they're called speed bumps so I've always read the sign as just that. Now every morning as I approach the parking lot I read the sign as more of a command: "Speed hump ahead". Cracks me up every time. Oh Indianapolis.

Summer Apartment

Finally getting around to posting some photos of my summer apartment. In a few short months I will be moving closer to Indianapolis but this is great for the time being. There is also a bedroom, bathroom and living room that are not pictured...more photos to come later! (**Glass/mirror installation by Glass artist, Cara Camp)

The Vendor Client Relationship

A few weeks ago during our weekly job meeting we watched this classic demonstration of what designers have to endure on a day to day basis...painfully funny. Enjoy!
