I Found the Mothership

>> Thursday, December 3, 2009

Tonight I attended a party hosted by Maharam, Green Source Solutions, Reflex Lighting, and Teknion.
The invitation read: Join us, 7th Annual Hidden Talents Unveiled: Creative works by members of our design community. My thoughts: my dream party!

 It was a cocktail party with a bunch of architects and designers (who have full time jobs in the A&D world) and also make and sell crafts on the side. i.e. my people! I found my mothership tonight in the middle of Southie. This group was SO talented and I wish I had my camera with me so I could share all of the great things I saw.

The big coincidence of the party was meeting Traci Roloff of Filz Felt. Last week I was reading an article Apartment Therapy had written about her fabulous felt business she recently started, with friend Kelly Smith, in the South End. Start up stories fascinate me and the idea of a good fabric store in my hood fascinates me even more. She told me she and Kelly met on Etsy, isn't that crazy! Kelly was the seller, Traci was the buyer, they discovered they were both in Boston and the rest is history. Traci is also an Interior Designer. Here are some images from their cute, cute shop.

Cutest ornament ever right!?



And the supplies! Oh the supplies! I might actually get to make the Bitty Booties I've been dying to give a try.

Have you started your holiday shopping? So far we've made a calendar of a certain 4-legged creature for her adoring grandfather. It's pretty awesome.

I've just discovered your blog! I love it! I'm studying for my Masters in Interior Design and felt the need to start my own blog to keep track of my interests, and things I'm going to see. http://cubicdreams.blogspot.com/

I think interior design is such a diverse area that leads to lots of other interests and your blog really expresses this. I've added you to my google reader :)

P.S. just noticed that you included a photo of the same yellow anthropologie skirt I posted about - gosh I really neeeeed that skirt :)

Thanks for your comment. I'm new to this - wasn't sure how to reply back (comment back on my post, or post here)! I actually studied Linguistics for my BA undergraduate degree, worked for 2 yrs and discovered that I wanted to do design, then did a 1 yr conversion course (graduate diploma) and now I'm doing my Masters. Trouble is, in the UK there are very few design jobs at the mo due to the recession - hopefully it will be better next yr! What's the job situation like in the US at the moment?

Possibilities Of Business Growth Many brokers offer customer service help over the phone or by email, as well as live chat via the web. More well-informed stock market investors could probably add many more to the following list. Gold Britannias have been minted by England's Royal Mint since 1987 and are available in the following size: 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz. Gold Coin Bank of India.
