These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

To make a King Cake for the monster.

(viewed 1536 times)
Eaten not ten minutes after it came from the oven. There's very little left for him to eat for breakfast. Apparently, I make a decent King Cake.

The purple sugar makes parts of it look burnt, but really, it wasn't. It came out just fine. And the monster got King Cake for Mardi Gras. He finished eating at 5 to 12.

I win.

The end.

I have just enough time...

I didn't have any proper colored sugar around so I made some. The purple kinda looks black in this photo but it really was purple.

I also was out of powdered sugar, so I ground my own to make the glaze on the left (yay for coffee grinders.)

There's still 90 min. Left of Mardi Gras...

I spent all day in bed with a migraine, so I was way behind when I finally got up. I'd meant to make a King Cake for the monster for Mardi Gras. I didn't have much time left, and it needs two 90 minute risings to make it work.

We're at 94%

The Lime Project has raised 94% of its total financial goal. We have 54
calendars (which were overruns by the printer- we've long since sold out of
our original run of 500) that are still available. Although we're almost
there, we're not done yet. So if you haven't gotten your calendar yet, now
would be a good time.

Sultry, I guess.

sick of winter.

(viewed 1805 times)
Every year, people tell me in December, "Oh, it's not so bad here in the winter."

I tell them "Just wait. Winter hasn't started here yet."

They always learn the hard way. It's been -15c or colder for weeks now.
