Cold front

NYC is having a major cold spell, major! Which means I haven't taken off my Verdel Cashmere Turban, that I won from Joanna Goddard at A Cup of Jo, in days! I've taken to wearing it backwards for a relaxed hipster look.

I spent much of last weekend trying to keep warm, while my brain was overheating with new ideas. How would I fill the rest of my days? A reinvention is necessary and pending - but which direction do I go in? A new mentor recently told me that I shouldn't limit myself to one track, but instead should plan to pull myself in several directions at a time until I figure it out.  

A visit to the Clinton Street Bakery reminded me that I love Motown favorites and that good pancakes are in demand here on Manhattan (we waited for over an hour!). I'm thinking a West Village pancake shop is in order. I'll add a dash of sass to all the recipes and play Motown favorites until everyone drops.

What does everyone think? Could this be the idea that changes my DID status to dormant?

  1. Do it! Great idea...and you know who would be TOTALLY excited about collaborating on design :) We can customize everything from napkins to door handles. oh and whoever that new mentor is ...good advice but be just a tad bit careful about completing your projects. I tend to run into that problem sometimes. Just an hour ago my mom and I were discussing my 2011 options over tea. She has zero faith in what she calls my "five fingered approach". But that's okay...I'm going to show her how it's done :) Best of luck V!
