How about a hamburger for Christmas

This might not be very festive, but I think it's pretty awesome wrapping paper nonetheless!


For all those unbelievers


For anyone who has any doubters or unbelievers in their homes,  Capture the Magic , a site that lets you download photos of Santa in your own home, will help make even the most skeptical of us into true believers. All you have to do is take a photo of your living room (or wherever it is that Santa leaves the gifts), upload it to this site, pick your favourite Santa, merge it and print. Voila! Proof that Santa was in your house.

I cannot wait to try this, I just have a lot of wrapping to do before the scene looks believable! Wouldn't this be a cute thing to leave next to the half-eaten cookie plate on Christmas morning for the kiddies in your house?

If anyone gives this a go, I'd love to see how they turn out.

Thanks to A Cup of Jo for the link.

Time out

How great is this!


Architectural Undulation

This is my third and final year of interior design school, and we have a giant project that we're working on all  year long. We had to take an existing building between 15,000 - 30,000 square feet and design a facility that would have a positive impact on the community. I decided to do a birth centre. It seemed fitting given my recent birth experience and my true admiration for the principles of midwifery. Ontario is pretty slow in adopting birth centres (we have none), but here's hoping the province comes around sooner rather than later.

As I keep plugging away at my design, I wanted to share a few snaps I found online that have been offering me a great deal of inspiration. I seem to have fallen for the idea of curves. Curved walls, floors, ceilings, whatever I can think of, for a different kind of flow through the building. Aren't these beautiful? They're so airy and bright. They guide your eye in a completely different way, which makes it so much more interesting than a 90 degree angle.
