Moody | No. 01

Having just packed up and organized all my things, I found a bunch of visual goodies I had tucked away in random places all year – including business cards, letters, photographs, and inside jokes! To make my new work space feel more at home and me-like, I selected some of my current favorites and made a mini mood-board! I am so used to making boards on the computer for my clients or for the blog so it was such a nice change to be able to handle the composition with physical objects. I plan to do this more, rotate and switch out all the visuals, and share the ones that I think are worthy of showing!! More coming soon + !!

…What’s on the board?
…Here are some of my favorites +

An orange print by Jen Gotch | An invitation from Kinfolk to their Dinner Series | Polaroids taken by Max Wanger | A postcard from the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs | Lots of business cards, including – My favorite place to get pastries in Los Angeles: Proof Bakery, a client from 2012: Cire Alexandria, a talented friend of mine: Kate Miss Jewelry, a drink master: Pharmacie LA, a memory from a long time ago: Magnolia Bakery, one of the most delicious pizzas I have ever eaten: Dove Vivi, a wood lover: Herriott Grace, and more…

This makes me want to create my own mood board. I’ve sort of tried “personalizing” my bulletin board at work, but there’s only so far i can take it.

This is sort of a silly question, but Some of those business cards don’t have pins in them (from what I can tell) — are they held up with tape or some sort of tack?

@C.,

Yes yes some of the cards are taped up.
I didn’t want to put holes in them!!
…They’re too pretty to mess up!

Nothing like a move to help unearth all sorts of treasures.

How are you settling in now that you’ve made it to the bay area?

(reply)

Emma this is really inspiring and beautiful. I always keep little treasures like these but never do anything with them…gotta go get some cork board. ;)

this is really ‘inspirational’ :). oh and i can’t wait until you share more about your life now in berkeley, I spent part of my summer there and it was just perfect – the beach boys on the radio, peace signs everywhere and the most delicous ice cream sandwich at C.R.E.A.M. – sometimes clichés are really good :)!

@JP,

That little dream catcher was made by a friend on the beach. He just gathered a bunch of stuff and BOOM*** a mini-catcher :)

…and yes, I had to leave my studio! So sad**
