take criticism + an event apart

/ Tue, March 29, 2011


I came across this vintage sign from Lackluster Co. today and didn't even think twice before clicking the "Add to Cart" button. It pretty much sums up my professional and personal life. Not in a bad sense, mind you, but in the sense that there is give and take to everything we do, and for every negative, there's always a positive (and vice versa) to cancel each other out and keep life's equilibrium in tact. Plus, I love the fact that the sign is seafoam green (one of my favorite colors), and the illustration that goes with it is just perfect. I'm sure we've felt like that once or twice in our lives.

This week, I'm attending An Event Apart for work, and having a fabulous time. I've enjoyed so many of the speakers talk about their philosophies and share their expertise in the world of web design and development. It's also nice to get out of the office for a few days, be surrounded by an intelligent group of people who care about and love beautiful and practical design, and bust a move during the middle of the day. Say what?! Yeah...Thriller.

If you're interested in learning about some of the awesome things that have been (and will be) discussed, feel free to visit afeedapart.com and follow all the tweets!

Am really thankful for the amazing people I work with and for the opportunity to attend events like this. Yay to NOT working for The Man!

Janie's Pretty Litttle Heart shop is filled with adorable vintage stamps and mailing accessories. It makes me miss having penpals to write letters to.

Have you been to Elephantine's blog lately? Uhm, okay, you need to if you haven't. Rachel recently added a new section called Food + Recipes where she documents all her cooking adventures with gorgeous photos complemented with witty captions. I mean, just look at that key lime pie! I'm not a fan of key lime pies, but even I want a piece of that.
