i am bummin' today big time. i don't know what's going on but i feel like i got kidnapped, blindfolded, and then dropped off a bus in the middle of nowhere at 4 AM with no cell phone and no toothbrush. i just don't feel so hot, but, man, that's no good, so i started thinking about the person i love more than anyone else on earth:
joan holloway from mad men.

this does not.
(but i still really like everything about it.)
somehow, it fits:
i'm not one for on-line diy projects. it's too many worlds colliding. nonetheless, i have been endlessly compelled by this design sponge idea:
