It's crazy how easily I can design for other people and absolutely
maddening it is to design for myself. I think it's a good lesson for
me. It reminds me just how scary it can be to pull the trigger on
something that you've been dreaming about doing for such a long time.
To My Clients: I feel you. I've currently been sitting at the computer
since 3:45am trying to make some last notes on my new business card
design and will spend tomorrow (really today I guess) obsessing about
the outdoor cushions I'm having made for myself. I fully realize that
these are not life and death decisions but I do want to be thoughtful
about how I spend my money and present my design aesthetic to the
world. The Architect and I have vowed to do the real work of designing
for ourselves. We aren't going to cheat ourselves out of the special
anymore because it's easier. Here are the outdoor fabric contenders.
Feel free to weigh in!
