Miscellaneous Debris

It's sometimes hard to find the time to write a blog post even when I know what I want to say. I spend most of my time either working on the brick documentary or thinking about it. The thinking about it part is really what consumes my time; I like to call this conceptualizing.

When I'm not conceptualizing bricks, I'm conceptualizing mosaic projects. And when I'm not doing either of those two things, I'm looking for a new place to live. Once you add work, sleep, exercise, fun stuff & leisurely activities, and chores to my daily task list, I have almost no time to spare. And I like it this way.

Day 054: Drinking carrot juice

Brick: Working on the brick documentary is incredibly satisfying; I'm learning a lot about St. Louis history and even better, I'm meeting all sorts of interesting folks. You can keep up with our progress by following the blog or becoming a facebook fan. Bill just set up the facebook page on Sunday and we already have more than 350 fans! Oh-- and we've nailed down a title, which you can read about here and here.

Mosaic: I'm working on a couple of smaller mosaic projects until I can do something bigger, which would be a kitchen backsplash for my brother and then possibly another one for someone here in Springfield. I'm anxious to get to work, so I started another small project over the weekend:
Finding direction. on Twitpic

This reminds me, does anyone know if it's possible to cut the sides on these serving trays? I'm not sure how to explain it, but I still want the sides to be attached but maybe cut them down so they are more of a frame so they can be hung on the wall. I hate the handle-y things; it makes the mosaics look stupid.

House stuff: Last week I went looking at houses and was about one second away from knocking on someone's door to ask about their house for sale by owner, but then I realized the for sale sign was an advertisement for the people who redid their garage. DOH!

Listening to: your mom


  1. REALLY pumped about the Brick project! What an excellent idea.

  2. I found your blog through Mocha Momma's blog (because I am a blog jumping whore) and after reading a few entries, I started thinking, "Wow, this chick is pretty cool. Too bad no one this cool lives in my area." But, holy crap! You do! So... hi!
