i had a fun time making thank you notes this weekend and finally finished up writing the last of them from all of our awesome baby showers. the new work room set-up is GREAT! next project: felt mobile for nursery…
gub made some paper garland using red and white baker’s twine and two different sized circular die cutters. it turned out super cute! she might make more to hang from the wall shelves.
we also hung up some more artwork, including a little grouping near the file cabinet corner: one of our vintage paint by numbers, a lisa congdon collage and a few other fun pieces. we put up a couple of little gocco screen prints by matte stephens as well.

in memory of macho man randy savage passing away, i wanted to link to one of my favorite videos of his. you might have to watch it a few times to understand half of what he’s saying, but it’s hilarious.
no freak out! no confetti! no nothing!
red hook brewery recently revamped their graphic and bottle design and i’m digging it! the bottles are now more rounded and look like stretched out red stripe bottles. the graphic design is also greatly improved and features a screenprinted look with a much simpler, yet catchy design. take a look for yourself, but to me these bottles stand out way more than they used to on the beer aisle.
in case you were worried, long hammer is still the same ipa you know and love, it just has a new look. it’s a light bodied, full tasting ipa, brewed with cascade and willamette hops for that great floral aroma and flavor. it’s not my favorite ipa out there, but it is a tasty one!

i found myself on another work project at the hyatt regency in downtown atlanta and was once again impressed with the architecture of john portman. the open design of this hotels interior and its elevator system is quite amazing, especially knowing it’s open for over 44 years. the hotel also offers some great views of the downtown skyline.
if you’ve never explored any of john portman’s buildings in atlanta, you really should; they are all truly breathtaking! we are fortunate to have so many of his designs in our downtown. be sure to check out our previous posts on his suntrust building, americasmart and connecting hallways.
atlanta is often overlooked for its architecture, but it really does have a ton of beautiful buildings!
i felt compelled to write about the amazing meal i recently ate. if you are craving a deliciously moist and tender beef short rib, swing on over to the newly renovated twenty-two storys restaurant in the atrium of the downtown hyatt regency. the short rib was served on top of these short noodles that were covered in a beef glaze. the meat fell right off the bone and was soo tasty. i would say it was the best short rib i’ve ever had!
twenty-two storys also featured a lot of great beers on tap, including a ton of local brews, as well as soups and foods integrating these beers. i was quite impressed!
