The Morning After… the weekend.

As designers we HAVE to, absolutely HAVE to keep our skills up to date and fresh. Always be on the look out for new trends and styles that have been way overused.

+ sharing some fun things I stumbled upon because sharing is caring.

Skill Share – “flip the notion of traditional education on its head and democratize learning.”

Sunday Afternoons

Let me visualize what I read…

Started this over the week and finally got around to finishing it today.

“a human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe,” a part limited in time and space. he experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
ALBERT EINSTEIN

oh beautiful today

Today is the reason why I love California. After mildly punishing us for about 12 days of stormy rain. We’re rewarded with this gorgeous, non deserving, sunny weather. I love California.

I’ll add more as I discover them!
