The art in my house is about 98% graphic, and I've been thinking lately it might be nice to bring in some photography, these prints are pretty rad, and right up my alley. I only wish we had approximately 2,000 more feet of wall space in our tiny abode.

I love everything about this entry, but in particular that door, simple, modern, and unique.

If we end up going with a shower instead of a tub in the eventual bathroom remodel,  I really want to make a wood slat floor happen.

I'm determined to find a spot in our house for a hanging chair....

I'm realizing I have a thing for rugs. Which is sort of a bummer because we have like 3 rooms in our house (including the living room) so there is only so much rug action that can happen. West Elm currently is having a sale, and I'm finding myself searching the house for a rug opportunity I have yet to discover. Here are some favorites.

Also, hi I'm alive and haven't updated the 'ol blog in a GRIP. More to come when the weather turns to shit and I'm not outside enjoying it but inside in front of a computer.

I'm such a sucker for Ballard, I never tire of shooting there. Here are a few photos from last week's shoot, in which Camille was kind enough to join me, and be my hand model ;)

There's a new can in town! We recently completed and launched the new seasonal can design for Two Beers. It should be appearing in stores soon, keep your eyes out...

Sometimes when procrastinating on a project I find myself designing other things, just for fun. No clients, no deadlines, just making something for the sake of making it. This is one of those things.

Will and I were recently in Hawaii for my cousin's beautiful wedding. Here are a few shots from the trip, including Will dancing with my Grandma, and my Grandpa showing off his moved on the dance floor. You're sexy and you know it Grandpa.

I'm going to blame it on the change in seasons, but all I've wanted to do lately is buy things, and being able to purchase just about anything online is proving to be dangerous.

And yes, that's a pillow with painted boobs on it. I think it's hysterical. Conversation piece anyone?

If you're looking to step up your coffee table book game, these magazines are sure to do the trick. Human Being (#3) will be adorning mine shortly.

A few snapshots from the weekend (via Instagram)... this one seemed to fly by, as they usually do. A short week is ahead though! We're off to Hawaii for my cousin's wedding on Wednesday, so no complains here.

1 - New babies for the back deck! The big one is a lime tree, here's hoping we'll be sipping home made margaritas in no time (or squeezing one little tiny wedge over a taco, more realistically)

2 - Our house really needs to be painted...

3 - The water taxi between downtown and W Seattle is the most awesome thing ever.. even in the rain.

I've been on the hunt for a new camera bag for quite some time and I think I might have finally found a winner. The bag is by Kelly Moore, in collaboration with A Beautiful Mess. It would be so nice to be able to carry more than two lenses, which is what I'm restricted to at the moment. Aside from functionality, it's actually quite beautiful, and I could see using it for other things than just a camera bag. Early birthday present to me perhaps?

I've always been so drawn to hand drawn type. It's a skill I have yet to master, but have been working on more and more lately. Zachary Smith's entire portfolio is very inspirational, and make me want to grab some pens and pencils and get to work.

With the warm weather finally creeping in, the giant project that is the back yard has slowly started. First up is tree removal, which as it turns out is actually quite fun for the first 10% (chopping down the tree) quickly followed by the remaining 90% (removing the stump) which is a giant pain the ass. We've managed to remove two so far, but the cherry tree still remains, as that might require a few more sets of hands. The cherry tree is a tough one, I wanted to keep it at first, and am still a little sad to see it go, but after drafting some rough plans, I soon realized just how in the way it is. Maybe 2 feet further East and I think I could have fought for it, but alas, it's going to soon be a giant pile of firewood.

I do have actual backyard plans to share, but they are in crappy sketch form, and so I'm going to wait until Will beautifies them. In the mean time, here is the short list of upcoming projects:

• Remove the 3 main trees (two down one to go)
• Rip up the brick patio / pressure wash bricks
• Build planter boxes on East side, and fill with bamboo
• Remove old greenhouse
• Rip out old chain link fence
• Lay new patio

This list is actually quite humorous as it's just scratching the surface, and there are about 20 more things to add, but I've realized we need to start with small goals and not overwhelm ourselves with giant lists.

The other tree we removed was more of a shrub, which was right next to the cherry tree. Again, nothing that exciting, just a home depot plant randomly placed in the grass. Of course my before picture is from the house listing, so it manages to make the yard look sort of nice, but trust me, it's only getting better. They even managed to make that arbor we removed look good, which was falling down and rotting...




So that's it for now! I will have more updates once we get the plan hammered out a little better, which I'm very excited to share (chicken coop!). I also plan to be better at documenting the process along the way, which seeing as how it's been a month since I've last shared anything, can't get much worse.
