All pieces to a puzzle… that I hope turn out as beautifully installed as they are on my computer screen when I selected them to go together.  My favorite part of design projects is when the tile starts going in… it is such a rush to see transformation in projects!

No, not this kind.  I love Klein Tools bags… I thought it was the combination of leather and canvas that had me intriguied… sort of Filson-esque.  But with further investigation I realized that like the all leather ones too.  Santa might need to bring me one of these…

So that was 11 things, but that was hard to narrow down.

While I love design, I do it all day long… and sometimes it’s really fun to see people and family on blogs… so I share these with you, in hopes that it’ll inspire you to be transparent and real in your life… my favorite blogs are the ones where people are real and share openly about their life, their family, and their passions… so I comply.  No sense in enjoyin’ and not playin’ along!

This past weekend, I really enjoyed my break from the rat race of life.

Sometimes when there is not much to look at but fields of this stuff…
