awhile ago i heard somewhere when it comes to organization you are either a piler or a filer. if you look around my studio you can see i am a piler. last weekend i was straightening up before someone stopped by and i noticed everything is in stacks and containers. and everything is out in the open because i know if i put it away i will probably never use it again.

weekends in my office are my favorite. probably because there is no pressure of having to get orders ready to mail by 5:00. or maybe because i don’t really answer email or send proofs, but work on projects that i don’t get to during the week. usually i don’t even sit at my desk, i use my laptop on my worktable in the other room – far away from printers and databases.

this weekend i did have to do some work for two very important clients – my nieces. they needed their valentines. they both gave very specific art direction. however there was a problem – was weeks ago i ran out of envelopes for my tiny valentines. so they got something even better – handmade envelopes. i couldn’t give them just plain white envelopes so i printed a pattern on some paper and started folding and glueing.

and now they just have to had their name and some sticker hearts and they will have the perfect valentines to hand out.
