Christmas gifts for mom

So this year the family decided to do puts name in the bucket and draw who was buying who a gift. I ended up with my mother. I love my mom, but buying her a Christmas gift is probably the hardest thing in the world to do. I know all the things she likes - do you realize how hard it is now to find an antique cookbook for her collection, or a tin that she hasn't already found. Forget it.

So this year I decided to raid my photographs and pick two that I thought she might like. These are the two I picked. I am a few days late, but I am getting them printed and matted and will ship them off as soon as possible. She knows I can barely remember to tie my own shoes most days - shouldn't be a surprise I can't mail Christmas gifts on time.

Something about the colors in this one. I am going to have it matted with a rust border, similar to the beads in the picture.


This picture - wow - I might have this one matted for myself.


So there you go - mommy's always like something their babies made for them.

Just sitting at my desk in Seattle

I was just staring out the window and kind of amazed at my location in Seattle. There are some crazy views from the windows on the 68th floor.

Here's what it looks like from my desk:

This is the view from the back office:

and finally here's the other side of our space:

I will be back with something of value in the coming days.
