Found Fun

Ok, so I was a little bored this morning and not doing what I really should be doing, but I just could not help myself….I found some of the most fantastic ways to reuse old books…Here they are.


Found Fun

I am a book lover (never used to be until about 2 years ago). Here is a great website for the modern reader….Chronicle Books.

Such a great site for fun and serious books. There are many categories to choose from, cooking, journals, novels, flip books, children’s books, etc.

Here is a quick snapshot…



Not Such a Mundane Monday

So, just one more month until I take the LEED Green Associates test! December 11 @ 1:30pm. Time to read, study and practice my testing times. Flashcards. Books. Case Studies. Resources. USGBC Site.

I remember every year when I was growing up that I looked forward to another year to start at school. I waited for that day when my mom and I could go to Staples and good through the list of required and recommended school supplies. Oh how I loved the smell of fresh paper and the plastic binders. Those peach-e folders in every color, the pens, and the dividers.I loved coming home and filling my new backpack with the unopened supplies for the new year.  I always told myself that the first page of my notes had to be the best handwriting I would ever write, and as usual, it would be. Then as the pages turned so did my handwriting.

I still go through the same heightened joy when I walk through those doors at Staples. The technology may have changed a little bit and the binders might have gotten more expensive over the years, but one thing that has not changed is the atrocious handwriting that would begin to form page after page after page. Love it. 

Study Study Study….

Found Fun

I was looking though a few websites today, just checking things out, inspirations, sales, etc. when I found these awesome books.

Many of you may have heard of Jonathan Adler before. He is a designer who also has his own line of furniture, decor and accessories. There are some fantastic and fun ideas within these two books (Which I am adding to my resource library). Can’t wait until they arrive at my door!
