Little bitta whimsy....

Today I had the day off and decided that my desk needed another playful touch. My room is done in the popular trendy colors with bedding in various Amy Butler fabrics and eclectic and vintage pieces. I love the fun birds and leaves that seem to be popping up everywhere but have never had the chance to experiment with them yet. Today I created a box with various fabrics, added a grosgrain ribbon around it, attached a vintage brooch to the front, and perched a bird on top to keep me company. My desk is nice and busy but this was the perfect touch and way to spend part of an afternoon. It's great keeping me company working on a new project....or just killing time on the internet! :)

My parents and my brother came u
p to visit for the day. My mom always manages to find the neatest things when she goes shopping. She found me eco friendly binders that are awesome and I can't even take the credit for them! They are by greenroom eco ( The binders are made of 50% post consumer fibers and there are matching tab dividers that are made of 70% recycled material. They are even printed with nontoxic soy based inks. As a designer this green buzz hit me long before it got crazy in our society...I have to say I'm enjoying what it's bringing out!
