swissmiss This coming weekend will be a big moment for swissmiss! My wonderful developer and friend John Ford and I are hard at work 'packing boxes' to finally move the site to my own server and reveal the much needed design overhaul. Some of the new functionality inlcudes: a much needed search, better filtering options and even a choice in how you'll access the posts. On a personal and 'appreciation note': I have never before worked with a developer that is as organized, zen and pleasant to deal with as John. He would actually challenge my designs and say: "Com'on, make it a little harder for me. We can do more than that!"

Being back in California has been making me yearn for a day trip out to the desert. I have been reminiscing of being young, taking road trips out to Las Vegas or Laughlin, sitting in the backseat with my headphones on and watching the sun set over rolling hills and endless cacti. I'm even finding the desert inspiring my home design now. Here's hoping for a possible mini vacation.
Name: Adele (10 months)Location: United States For Adele's room, Greg and I wanted something fun, bright, and cheerful, and a little bit geeky/steampunk without taking over the room with nerdiness (we'd considered, and dismissed, Portal, Mario, and pirate-ninja). I quickly latched onto a cheerful (5-legged) octopus image I'd seen somewhere and a bedding set that mixed a bunch of contrasting but color coordinated prints in a very fun way.
The cooker is definitely the next must have in the kitchen. Now a days, with the smaller and poorer ventilated kitchens, the hood is also another must have. With the improvement in technology and reduction of cost of manufacturing, the cooker hob is becoming popular. Setting up a kitchen - Hobs and Hoods
As you probably already know, photography is the new graphic print. In the last few years everyone has been adorning their walls with graphic art prints and quotes, but that trend has faded and given room to a more interesting art form; photography. However, finding original photos that speak to you, and aren't already on the walls of all other homes, is quite a challenge. That is why I am happy to be able to present The Print Atelier, an online gallery of contemporary photography, offering hundreds of images in different styles, from nature panoramas to abstract art. I picked out some favorites, and there is also a drool worthy video featuring a male model and a stunning room that you don't want to miss...
It's that time of the week. The ones that made the cut but then didn't because I hummed and hawed and changed my mind. My stalking leftovers. Why? I'm very fussy.
This week’s radio show was a reader request: tips for beating procrastination and being more productive. I think it’s safe to say that all of us struggle with productivity, time-management and procrastination at one point or another. While most of us know how to “get things done” in the deadline sense of the of the word, most us also want to find a way to avoid those last-minute situations and get work done on a schedule that feels calmer and more in control. I used to be a master of procrastination, but lately I feel proud of being able to push through that feeling a bit more often and get things done bit by bit. I also feel like I’ve gotten better at getting to the bottom of why I’m procrastinating about something, so I can work through those feelings and finish the job.
