i'm sure i've said before, but i work out of my house. my home office is lovely, but it's not exactly like working in a real office—there's no water cooler, no need to dress up and no state-of-the-art-super-slick printer. each day i'm given a budget on what is going to appear in the magazine. i'm responsible for letting everyone know what type of art is going to go with each story. if i worked at the office, i'd simply print that list each day and work straight from it. but, since i do not—and i do not have said nice printer—i instead write out that list each day on paper. i actually quite like my little system. it feels good in an age where typing is king to write something out by hand. i typically use one sheet each day, so i'm forever looking for cute notepads to make me happy. these notepads from boatman geller (at see jane work) do just that. my favorites are the alligator and the madras plaid. so cute!
