sprucing-up


Our Mothering.com team is made up of folks who live around the globe.* And they’re coming to visit us here at the Mothership. . . tomorrow.


So we’ve spent some time today sprucing up around the office—and for those of us in the Production Department, that has meant straightening up, cleaning out, throwing out, and doing things we’ve been meaning to do a long time, like hanging up that white board—the one that we rely on to know what day it is. . .


Tonight, as Mel and I were finishing up, about to head out the door, we realized again how blank our cinderblock walls are. (Our part of the office is in what once was a furniture warehouse.) The quick fix? Double-stick tape and large printouts of color swatches from the palette we use for the magazine. We’re thinking we might be onto something.

*Seriously: our web master (though we prefer the term web mama), Cynthia Mosher, lives in Saudi Arabia.


palette-wallsPhoto below kind of gives the gist of the paletted walls. (And, yes, the white board really does say “Today is Lazy Day and Healthy Cheetos Day.” It was one of those doubly exciting days.)

Love the color swatch decorating! My daughter would be all over that. Ever time we go to the hardware store, we can't leave until we pick up some new paint swatches.
Your daughter's a girl after my own heart! Any chance she tries to figure out things to do with the cups of color remaining after dyeing Easter eggs—like I did? (and discovered it doesn't work very well for underwear and socks...)
Check out this infinitely more impressive version at design sponge: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/04/diy-idea-paint-strip-wall-decoration.html
Also it really is ridiculous how long it took me to get around to hanging that white board!
I wish I could be there too! Maybe next time! .-= Jennifer Margulis´s last blog ..So You Want to be on TV =-.
Jennifer, come on down!
I did admire the color swatch decorating. So cool! And no worries. The white board looked like it had been hanging there forever! :D Mel has this collection of mini Mothering cover images on her monitor's edge. Love it! You should do a wall or hallway or something of all the past Mothering cover images. Full size of course :p Thanks for a fabulous gathering! ~Cynthia
It was great having you here, Cynthia. Wish you could've stayed longer!
