This is an excellent talk that discusses the nature of mental illness in animals, while also empowering owners to take care of their pets!
Look what came in the mail yesterday! Stitch’s new lifejacket and hiking pack. I cannot wait to take her out on some of the beautiful trails here on the island. So last night we walked down to the beach to try out her life jacket, but unfortunately I forgot about the high surf advisory. Poor Stitch was completely consumed by two waves before we could even get deep enough to see if her jacket worked. Better luck next time I guess.
Hi everyone! So, lately I have taken up gardening on my back patio, and the herbs have been going wild. I do not do am lot of cooking so in an effort to find ways to use my freshly grown bounty, I took to Pinterest. After a few searches on the proper harvesting techniques, I came across a plethora of recipes for infusing herbs into everything! Oils, vinegar, sea salt, water, etc. I probably wrote down about 17 recipes and I am so excited to get going.
Now that I am finally settled in my new home here in Hawaii, I’ve been looking for a new project to break in my craft room. I came across some bargain bin fabric scraps I had bought for 50 cents at Michaels years ago. The fabric has this adorable victorian country scenes on it. After some Pinterest research I decided on cloth napkins as my project. The tutorial on the blog Blissfully Content was both simple and elegant. See my results below:
I now have three gorgeous cloth napkins to class up my next dinner party!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you might have noticed a few adorable furry creatures on my instagram feed. The little beasties are Lilo and Stitch my new puppy and kitten. I adopted them from the Hawaiian Humane Society back in May, just after I arrived on the island. My mother suggested I choose a Hawaiian name, but not knowing too many and considering that Lilo & Stitch is one of my favorite movies and set here in Hawaii, I thought it might work. Stitch of course got her name because of her huge, Rat Terrier ears and poor Lilo is unfortunately a boy. But I think it suites him. They definitely keep my life interesting, especially since Lilo has discovered the top of my kitchen cabinets!
Anywho, I just thought I’d formally introduce all of you to make things less awkward in the future. So the next time you’re feeling down, head over to instagram.com/peterpaulandshona and take in their overwhelming cuteness.
Hi everyone. So with my haste to run off to Navy OCS last year I never had a chance to post my final project for my MArch. Above I have included an image of my 26′-0″ visual presentation. I have also … Continue reading
As part of our studio work we are to look through our previous body of work for insights into decisions and designs that have been repeated over time and apply them to our MFP project. So I have been doing some photoshop collages of portfolio work onto my site and here’s what I have so far…
I am now well rested after the weekend and ready to post my GD3 Slam presentation. The event was very interesting and it was a great chance to see everyone else’s work, as well as a way to challenge myself to present everything in a concise and precise manner. So here you go, ActionReaction: Urbanized Natural Systems, Naturalize Urban Systems.
Tomorrow is our Slam, where every M.Arch GDIII has to give a 3 minute presentation on their project. I’m still working on my presentation, slowly but truly. I thought this video does a very good job characterizing the process of getting out ideas, something I am struggling with at the moment. The talk is by Rilla Alexander for 99u.com.
