A Sketch and Some Hints - Design Day Friday

Blog Mentoring Logo - Design Day Friday

Finally, finally Friday!  Today I'm going to do something a little different.  I've got a sketch for you, hastily drawn to appease the Design-Day Friday gods, and also a hint about a project that I'll be unveiling on Tuesday.

A little back story: this week has been a little rough, and a little jam-packed (really ever since we got back from vacation).  So last night was the first night I was able to get caught up on sleep.  Consequently, this morning is the first that I was able to get dolled up before work.

Since I'm anticipating a weekend also packed full, and most of those activities are design-centered, I reverted to a practice of mine from high school.  When I wanted to be artsy and productive - I always wore all black.  I'd put on a butt-ton of makeup, usually involving purple lipstick and black eye shadow, put my hair up in a practical bun, and get to work.  I no longer own purple lipstick, but the rest is the same.

Why does this help me?  No clue.  But here's a sketch of how I feel at this moment.

Now, for the hint.  It involves this logo...

And some things Jana (from Jana Says) and I will be working on this weekend.  Stay tuned for Tuesday's announcement!

P.S. Jana is the first blogger I met in person and it was awesome!  It makes me wish DE was more of a bustling metropolis, so there would be more local bloggers.  But... suburbs are nice too.

Do you have a "power outfit"?  What do you do to feel more productive?

  1. I don't think I have a power outfit, but I feel awesome when I take the time to curl my hair, which hasn't happened in ages.

  2. All black has always been my go to power outfit, can't wait to see what you guys have in store!

  3. I have Power Suits that I pull out when I need to be intimidating. Absolutely!

    1. I always wanted to own an actual power suit, but I feel too silly in the formal jackets. Our office is really casual so I never had to get used to them. So I substitute with other things.

  4. I used to have a power outfit but its been awhile.. Maybe with my new position at work I will find a new power outfit and start rocking it soon! Can't wait to see what you guys are working on!


Talk to me! I'm friendly. I won't bite.
