These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

I just finished all the ceiling beams. The only thing left is the wall with the window.

...paint store blew it.

(viewed 1285 times)
I went to the paint store yesterday to get another gallon of Venetian plaster.

They blew the color mix. So, back to the store I go. Hopefully they won't argue with me about a replacement. It's too early in the day to be arrested for throttling anyone.

The lime project gets a valentine.

(viewed 875 times)
We received a $5000USD donation today. I guess I need to make up a 75% lime banner.

More progress.

(viewed 1288 times)
Continuing with the plastering today. I had to pick up another gallon of the gray plaster before I continued. Unfortunately, it looks like I will need yet another gallon to finish the room once this one is empty. The good news is that after these three wall sections are done (the two you can see here and one out of frame on camera right) I can put another two bookcases into place and get some stuff currently cluttering up my kitchen out of there.
