Did I mention I was going to do the National Stationery Show in New York? It has been a little bit of a whirlwind from deciding to do it, to leaving on the plane to returning. I had binged on other people’s posts over the years in hopes of one day attending, created Pinterest boards on booth designs and tried to absorb as much info as I could prior to doing it. When it finally came time to sign on the dotted line and do it, it was pretty much go-go-go from that moment on.
It was around December that I decided to just do the show.
We’re planning our back deck remodel (we’ve been planning it for 10 years) and I’m hoping to share some updated shots of what we’re going (planning / wishing) to do. Part of the planning of the deck has been trying to visualize how we’re going to use the deck – which is hard, given that I’m a ding dong with spacial planning. Until the deck is actually built, I’m stuck in a state of just dreaming of how we will use it. But I have an idea that I’d like it to be used as a lounge area, with deep seating where Aubrey and I can sit and just enjoy the Spring / Summer / Fall season until the Canadian Winter puts us in a snow globe. It’s because of our short enjoyment of the seasons that I feel like we should focus on enjoying our space outdoors and, make it comfortable.
Three new photographs have been added to the collection over here. They make me crack up every time I see them. I was inspired by the things I just love to have around the house that evoke memories, but I’ve learned I can’t hold onto things – I need to let them go, so I don’t collect too much in my home. For years what I’ve done is taken a picture of something before it leaves in a donation bin, or, goes to someone I know. I don’t need the item in hand to relive the happy memories, for me, seeing something triggers the emotions just as much as holding it in hand. Which is why I started photographing items that I thought were classic, and would also evoke those happy feelings in others, and would make great art.
