It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com.

Have you seen this yet? Go ahead and read it, I’ll wait. I think it’s kind of important. This is a letterpress poster (my favorite kind), produced by Sugru, makers of a “fixing” adhesive. The poster is lovely, and I … Continue reading
Interesting week. There was a come down from the show, of course. That resulted in me being annoyed with work, which wasn’t so convenient. On the other hand, the weather has been beautiful (though no rain, which is kind of … Continue reading
