The Learning Loop by Jason van der Burg

What a clever, simple, and attractive organization stand.  We're currently designing a house and I've been working hard to figure out storage and organizational ideas for our clothes and shoes.   Nobody likes a cluttered entryway and when I saw these on Design Milk the other day, I thought, "What a simple, beautiful, and smart idea."  The Learning Loop by Jason van der Burg is an genius solution since the "compact organizer props itself against a wall and becomes your go-to clothing hanger, gadget shelf, mirror, magnet board, key holder, and shoe rack all rolled into one."  Check it out here.

Louise Bourgeois

Today, I feel inspired by textiles and fabric works fashioned by French artist, Louise Bourgeois, using her old clothes at the age of 70.  The MoMa tells us that, "All the while she constantly made drawings on paper, day and night, and also returned to printmaking. Art was her tool for coping; it was an exorcism. As she put it, 'Art is a guarantee of sanity.' Bourgeois died in New York in 2010, at the age of 98". -MoMa

Happy New Year!

In 2014, I've worked on practicing gratitude and vulnerability.
The year was filled so many trips and memories.
To top it off, we just bought a home.
I know a new journey has begun so
when I saw this today on dot&bo,
I thought it would be a good way to start off 2015.
