9.3.12

Designed my last A1 for the Statesman last night, almost exactly a year after my first A1 shift. Sad to leave the desk, where I’ve learned so much, but excited for a new adventure on the web as an online content producer for statesman.com — I start full-time tomorrow!

Oh! Look what came home with me this weekend!


Woohoo! (:

A wee cake dedicated to the Muthler family. Happy birthday, Genevieve.

7.8.12

For the past several weeks my excitement had been building about our Fourth of July vacation. Some people jet off to exotic places for a summer trip, but I couldn’t wait to spend several days in Valley Mills — population 1,203 — where we attended the annual Barnett family reunion, went fossil hunting, worked on our croquet games, and generally didn’t worry about what time it was. I baked a cake and specifically left my computer and makeup at home. It was exactly what I needed.

And of course, I carted my camera around with me. Such fun.

Great Friday or greatest Friday?

Basic chocolate chip cookies (too flat, but still tasty enough) and cream cheese pound cake — because I was drooling over pound cake at the store but decided it was silly to buy one when I had all the ingredients at home (I used cake flour this time around). Nom nom nom.

Alternative story forms, what what!
Overall, I just like this page OK, though I am happy with how the centerpiece turned out. I could have done more with it if we hadn’t needed to get four other stories out on the front … but I’m not going to complain about the newspaper having too much news. (:

The past couple of weeks at work:

I think this centerpiece photo — by staff photographer Laura Skelding — is really beautiful. So glad I was able to run it large and in color!

I was hoping to beef up this centerpiece package a bit, so I dug through the story and pulled out some of the (many) numbers for an A1 rail to supplement the photo and graphic.

I recommend this centerpiece story — even if you haven’t been following the AISD charter drama closely — if you have a chance. Good stuff.

Besides work, I have been getting some other things done — like buying a wedding dress. (: More on that later!
