Today my "Threads" are threads of technology! Last weekend while finishing back-to-school shopping, I discovered the Boogie Board. It wasn't much, just a simple e-writer, so then I did more research. I found that the company also made on e-writer that syncs to your phone via Bluetooth... this meant I can email myself my notes, drawings. I can send them to friends or clients! This tool is revolutionizing things for me, and I have only been using it for less than 24 hours. If you are an active note taker or artist on the go--- this is a great product for you. The best part, it's only $80! Boogie Board Sync 9.7

As I was driving into work this morning Jeff Buckley serenaded me with his rendition of "Hallelujah" and as I sang along I made a mental note to email Mr. D with a request to add this song to the list. It seems appropriate and haunting now at 10:45pm, because later in the evening we would all slowly start to learn of the death of the great Robin Williams. He, like Jeff Buckley left us in shock with the news of his death. Robin Williams who made so many of us laugh was hiding his own demons. Jeff Buckley's passing was not intentional, but a tragic accident...yet I still remember being shocked by the news when it occurred.
So tonight I think about sweet and haunting melodies and the genius mind who made life sweet with laughter.

I'm not trying to be camo heavy this fall... but I am in love with these pieces.
|Warby Parker, Kimball|
I also want to monogram some pieces this fall...like a jacket, a pair of jeans and a scarf. Here are some I found.
|EBP Designs asks you to bring in your favorite jeans for a customization.|
|I'd just take any jacket in my closet to my local monogram shop.|
What are you putting on your fall wish list?

Among the story-filled text panels, there is one panel that depicts the colorful and powerful artwork on albums. Once upon a time, Latin artists were commissioned by Latin musicians to create original artwork for their album covers. These vibrant covers lead me to think about one of the most colorful musician in the history of Latin music, Celia Cruz.
