4 things…creativity and style//January 25, 2015

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. This week I was at Alt Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah and it was amazing. I met so many new friends.  The entire event was remarkable and every day was packed with insight, inspiration and valuable information.  I look forward to applying the things I learned and seeing how it unfolds in my own work.

Dreaming of: meeting my two year old cousin.  Last night I flew into Indiana and today I’ll meet my baby cousin Sierra for the first time.  I cannot wait to see what she is like in person.  Facebook only tells you so much.

Loving: my roommates at Alt.  These ladies are such intelligent and caring women with creativity and style pouring out of their every gesture.  I loved sharing a suite with Taylor @pinwheelprojects, Jackie @thejollyholidayblog  and Yana @nomadluxuries.

Stalking: here are a few inspiring people I met at Alt.  Julie Schumacher of Well Turned Words, Jess Lively of Jess Lively, Kimberly Ellen Hall of Nottene, and Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind.

Enjoying: a bit of travel.  Traveling is a passion of mine and I feel it plays a big part in who I am and in my work.  Getting to visit San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Indiana in two weeks has been rejuvenating.  I have had the travel bug for a few months now, and jumping on a plane has definitely put that to ease, for now.

4 things…little visits//January 18, 2015

Happy Sunday from San Francisco everyone.  Mike and I celebrated his birthday this Friday.  It’s always so nice to share an evening with friends.  Then I headed up to San Francisco for an engagement and some art.  While I am up here I’m going to visit my nephew as well.  I cannot wait until they move to San Diego so I can see them on a regular basis.  But in the meantime I will enjoy my little visits.

Enjoying : The Ai Weiwei exhibit at Alcatraz today. The exhibit is amazing. Ai Weiwei has a unique and inspiring way of sharing his views and seeing his work is moving.  I love the irony of the location.  Alcatraz is such a poignant choice.  If you aren’t familiar with this artist-activist you might find him intriguing.

Packing : For Altitude Design Summit.  I am almost completely packed and I am ready to fly out with Taylor from pinwheel projects.  I have been looking forward to this for months now.  It is going to be a motivational week, and I am looking forward to applying new things to my work when I get back.

Pinning : Dream life 2015, a collection of things that I am dreaming of for 2015.  Looking forward to looking back at this board at the end of the year.

Dreaming of : downhill skiing.   Mike and I are still planning on taking a trip this year, but I am thinking we need a weekend getaway to Yosemite for some downhill skiing before winter is over.

Here’s a little iPhone snapshot from San Francisco.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Singing Along With: In One (Y)ear, Out the Other Playlist//January 17, 2015

It’s finally the new year! You know what this means, fresh starts, new goals, and lots of vowing to go to the gym and then not (but hey, it’s okay, you have the rest of the year ahead of you, right?! ;D). While the new year welcomes exciting possibilites, it also brings more responsibilites. Start the new year off right with an upbeat and fun playlist to ease the new year butterflies.

4 things…playing cards//January 11, 2015

Happy Sunday.  I hope everyone is enjoying the rainy weather today.  With such little rain last year I am hoping this is an indication of the type of weather we can expect this year.  Just a few days of rain over the past few weeks have already made a difference.  The hills are greener, the trees look quenched and the grass is growing.  With a lot of my work taking place outside I especially  appreciate how beautiful this city looks with a little rain.  As I enjoy the weather today I will be thinking about these four things.

Enjoying : Artofplay.com at Coffee and Tea collective.  I had never seen an art exhibit about playing cards.  The designs were brilliant.  Part of me wanted to collect them all.  Mike and I enjoying playing cards, especially on days like today, so I am sure we will have some new sets soon.

Creating : a new personal Instagram account suzanne_ofeldt.  Just a little space to post some personal work.  Hope to see you there.

Pinning : Art techniques.  With all the inspiration and tips out there for creating new art this Pinterest board is my collection of things to try.

Dreaming of : Detroit.  When I was in Italy at a day after wedding brunch, I noticed a few of the guys there had Detroit t-shirts on.  After talking to them about it, I found out that they traveled to Detroit for work now that Fiat has an office there.  The Detroit t-shirts have been on my mind occasionally since.  I need to make plans to go buy my own Detroit t-shirt soon.
