Old Printer Trick

Before you go to press, you need your form locked up nice and tight. However, it can happen that when you lock it up, your composition inside the chase isn’t tight enough, but the furniture you have available doesn’t fit in the loose space. What do you do?
An old printer trick is to cut paper to length/height size and slip it inside. It works!

Happy July 4th :: Baby Fireworks


(updated) I’ll call them baby fireworks, but they’re actually confetti launchers. I think these are a great alternative to fireworks for babies like mine who are 8 months! We don’t celebrate the 4th in Italy (wink-wink), but I really wanted Maya to experience some of my/her root traditions.

Turntable Tuesday :: Homestyle Classic Rock-n-Roll

I like clean modern aesthetics in just about everything, but softness to a homestyle environment is essential too. Just as the birds and bees co-exist with hard manmade structures; textures and aromas can add warmth to a space.
