but, where did the summer go?

Tomorrow I leave for Austin, Texas.

I will be attending the 2014 IDSA International Conference. It's kind of one of those things that I kept saying, "it's not until mid-August." It wasn't until about last week that I realized it was really here. 

I was hoping to have more of my projects updated by this time. Unfortunately, between working full time and attempting to have the grasp of what I call "graduate freedom," that isn't really the case. I have a wall covered in various prints and frames that are finished, but an untouched canvas smack dab in the middle of them. I have three out of six couch cushions successfully sewn, but the structure of the couch in pieces of wood scattered about the back patio. I have sketches for my own personal perfect yoga accessory, but no fabric or cut patterns or even finished design. Right now, this is the summer of many unfinished design projects. 

With that said, if I meet you at the conference and you're here looking for my work, feel free to look through what is up of my school projects. However, after graduation I haven't done the re-designing that us students are known for. Instead, I have tried to focus on what it is about design that made me love it in the first place. I am pushing myself to get out of the academic structure that I grew to love and explore what "spontaneous" design for everyday solutions is all about. 

Stay tuned (and, of course, it was so nice to meet you.)
