First, Don and I have been working for some time on launching our own brand, Semple Goods, to market and sell a few of his woodworking pieces (and maybe some of my fabric designs). I haven't shared them with the interwebs yet because we are actually working towards copywriting/patenting. Eventually we plan to have a whole website dedicated to this (http://www.semplegoods.com/) but we're just not quite ready to go live.
Second, we're buying a house! And we'll be doing most of the work ourselves over time and I've got all these ideas coming to me. I don't have many opportunities for design in my current job (ironic), so this house will be a really great outlet for reviving and utlizing my residential design talents.
Third, I'm also clearly obsessed with food and baking and eating and sustainable farming. When I'm not thinking about design, there are recipe ideas going through my head. Don and I are serious cooks and love great drink, so I think there would be plenty of material.
So, my dear, loyal, 12 readers, leave me a comment voting for one of the following:
- An all-things home design blog, centered around our new house, featuring lovely domestic things (and incorporating Semple Goods as it evolves).
- An all-things food blog, centered around my baking and eating and opinions of foods [maybe titled "The Real Life Adventures of Suzie Butters"].
- Keep the random mash-up but make it prettier and the postings a little more regular and concise.
