Paper & String

Last day of freedom before I start working like a normal person. Loving the colorful books that I picked up at Savers. Sketchbook time.

I'm from a small town, meaning there is a lot of 'sale parties.' It's as if they need a reason to get together by buying shitty things at very high prices. Yes, I've been invited to them all, and have refused to RSVP. Everything from candle, tupperware, jewelry, knickknack, pure-romance, and the newest one is called Uppercase Living, they sell decorative "expressions." But when I saw this invitation I died a little inside. WHY, oh why do suburban mom's think it's so stylish to have their living room say "live, laugh, love"? gross. gross.

This bush one is probably my favorite. WTF. HAHA. Oh get a real plant.
Sorry Cousin but there is absolutely no way I would go to this.

New Craft

Helped my friend Chris make some sweet skinny ties. Fun little project. Would love to make more...perhaps with some illustrations? New project?-hmmm.

The Curious Garden

I'm in love with this book by Peter Brown. He has some other amazing work, but this makes me melt.

My website has been posted on MNIMAL. Interesting. Wondering by who?

Could be grapes

Craft Day

Today is a lovely day for sewing, folding, and documenting. Watching Coco avant Chanel. Making some skirts. Playing with black paper and shadows. Undecided what these little folded bits will be yet. But something. Yeay.

Mitten Lost & Found

My roommate lost her mitten. It was found on the street. Flat and frozen. I have never laughed so hard.

Justin Gabbard

Great stuff, saw it on the the New York Times site.

Foot in the Door 4

Here's the piece that I submitted to the Foot in the Door 4 at the MIA. Viewed the show today, it's insane. I missed the opening reception, but I've heard that maybe that's a good thing because the line to see the art was longer then the line to submit work, which is scary because I waited in line for two hours.

I think their shoes in the door was kind of clever. Makes me want to go shopping, a very rare occasion.

Love Hurts

Dear my sweet car,

Thank you so much for saving my life, and being the strong little bugger that I knew you were. I'm sorry you had to go like this. You held up your side of our bargain. No car will ever live up to your standards in personality and charm. I will always remember how you loved weather so much and refused me heat and air conditioning. It's fitting that you should end in the snow upside-down, rolling over like a little puppy. And who will ever forget your one red mirror that I always felt was winking at me, that's now missing in the great pile of snow. I know your still alive in there somewhere. Maybe if you're fixed you will become just a summer car.

Love You.

It's ironic that the first song I hear when I get in the new car is obviously Stayin' Alive. I dedicate it now to you old buddy.

About Time has been updated. It has been tweaked and loved a little more then before. I am very content. Hello job searching.


My Uncle is currently in Haiti, contributing as a anesthesiologist. He has been emailing us (other doctors') blog excerpts to show a little perspective of what he and many others have been experiencing. It's very painful to read some of them, I can't even imagine what it would be like to be there witnessing some of these stories.

One group, including my uncle, before heading to Haiti.

Date: 01.30.2010 09.13 PM

At the General Hospital our cardiology and medicine residents went and worked in the ICU treating patients with wounds, heart failure and kidney failure. One was a 15 year old boy in heart failure who in the end was flown to the USS Comfort medical ship. Our vascular surgeons, Drs McCarthy and Lind performed surgery all day, mainly debridement of infected wounds.

Our anesthesia and ortho teams went to a former private hospital now treating earthquake victims. Drs Fernandez and Van Thiel rounded on wounded patients and performed 7 surgeries, including debridement of the leg wound of the 4 year old we saw yesterday. The boy did well and was discharged.

Our team went to a makeshift urgent care center and worked alongside physicians and nurses from around the world. A group from the Dominican Republic set up at the Main Police Station directly in front of the destroyed National Palace. Our group alone saw over 400 children today. We had some very sick children with respiratory infections, dehydration and malnutrition. We had to stabilize a basically unresponsive little 11 month old whose mother and 2 of 3 siblings died and who has likely developed sepsis (blood poisoning) from infected wounds. Luckily Dr Ansell was at the General Hospital - we transported the girl, he received her and took her to the pediatric tent.

Many sad stories today. A pregnant mother who lost her husband and two of her children in the quake. Her 2 year old was stuck under the rubble for 4 days - she ended up having to pay someone 1000 Haitian dollars to dig him out. She has nothing - not even a sheet to sleep on in the tent city. A 10 year old boy who lost both parents and his siblings when their house collapsed. Only he and his 8 year old brother survived, now living on the street. To add misery to the situation, he got separated from his brother yesterday. Now both are completely alone. It is so heartwrenching to see this and be able to do so little. Although I hope I am making at least a small contribution, the scope of all this is so immense it is overwhelming.

That is all for now - we are all exhausted and need to try and get some rest.

Bits & Things

Little tidbits from my internships... I am indeed working.

So Sad

Sorry Guys. You tried. And then I hear a glimmer of Queen "But life still goes on..." instead of "we are the champions."

Dear Mouse,

You are super cute and chubby. But the way that you jump out at me all the time does not make me like you so much. Let us talk about today, and how I opened the pantry and you freakishly leaped at my pants in search of a hiding place. The bouncing towards me thing is just not right. You've got to go. I'm sorry.

PS thanks google image search for making me feel horrid.

I wanted to be an interior designer for about a year of my life. I'm glad that I didn't for many reasons. However, I will always miss amazing wallpaper. List: a John Bessler Photograph, Ribbon as wallpaper by Studio Ditte, and the amazing patterns from Designers Guild

A Single Man

I saw A Single Man last night. It will probably be one of the best movies I'll see all year. All I can say is "oh my god it's gorgeous," which is lame but there is no way to describe it. Oh Tom Ford. Oh the 60's. I want orange trees in my house.
