(not) really working



whoa! this is my 300th post. i can't believe i made it this far without deleting the thing, but i am just having way too much fun in artsyville to quit. we'll get back to the magnets soon, but today i thought i'd jump in here with a hearty salute to those of you who work from home, whatever your style may be. jen sparked this idea - i'll let you ask her whether she's the productive busy bee or the big-time slacker. these are now in the shop, just in case you need to remind others to leave you alone while you work or goof off.

here are a couple of excellent reads before i go - ricë's thoughts on how to behave at art fairs, info on christine's fabulous collage book which is now available for pre-order, alexandra's newest installation in her art as business series which pries into the mysterious world of galleries, and inner toddler's hilarious birthday debacle which is still making me howl with tears one week later. enjoy!

I need both of these signs lamented front to back to have at the ready in my home office. With a little ribbon to hang on the doorknob. And then I can flip it back and forth throughout the day.

Thanks for the mention. xo

So I read this title on my Bookmark Feed, and I'm thinking, 'Huh, the feed is not really working.' Took a minute before my tires screeched and I realized, "heyyyyyy, whaddaya mean (not) really working?' Hahaha!

Love these! Oooh, yes, when I get my studio up and running, I will need one of these. Guess which one.

OMG! You have been working a lot during my weeks apart of blog land! I have to catch up with all the eye candy in your blog.
I work at home and "sometimes" I'm happy I'm alone ;)
Congrats on your 300th super duper great post!

I haven't worked from home in yonks but I could still hang one of those on the door, right?
they would brighten the staircase up + would keep thieves at bay! :)

I so love your hand-drawn typo styles - wonderfully alive and quirky (hate that word but sometimes it's the only one that says it).

Great sign ideas by the way!
