View from the 51st Floor

This morning, I went to the 51st Floor Conference Room at 2 Union Square, the location of some company events next week.  I needed to check the entire space, find the tech closet and kitchen.  The view was nice. We’re facing northeast with Lake Washington in the center of the photo.

DIY Traveler’s Notebook

Hi ho, friends.
I have been wanting a Traveler’s Notebook ever since I took Christy Tomlinson’s Creative Planner class.  It’s the perfect size for carrying in my commute bag.  I used the notebook that came in this month’s Planner Society box as the template.  I also made a couple of notebooks with tabbed wrappers (not attached so I can re-use it) and one of those little month view planners. I picked mine up for 70% off at JoAnns and it’s a 2 year calendar.
This is the tutorial I followed for my TN cover:

Happy creating!

WIP: Close up of Derby Girl #1

Hi ho friends. Mr. Thompson and I are fans of our local roller derby, the Rat City Roller girls. We go to bouts whenever we can. Recently, an opportunity came up for me to have a vendor table at the first bout of this season.
My hubby came along to help out and had a suggestion: make derby girl art using the local team colors. Great idea! Here is my first gal, who is inspired by Rosie the Riveter.  My initial sketch is pretty close to the original and I’m still working out how to make it my own.
Stay tuned for more derby girls!
