In other news, we're rearranging our entire office at work and shuffling people and things around. My pretty design office just got even prettier! I've come a long way since starting this job last spring, and have been feeling extra inspired lately. I think it's because my new office is so much easier to focus in!

  2. Mixed media pieces are always so interesting. Most of my attempts have been weird and not good.

  4. I want to try to make some mixed media pieces this summer, I have done some before and found it to be quite fun and strangely empowering (I don't know why)

    I love the orchids in your office! Are they real?

  5. Hey I bet your office is very feng shi (sp) now! It is really pretty, I'd have no problem working in a space like this!

    BTW, I love mix media too and these are great!
