trash can or treasure chest?

This is the story of Kate's new couch.
During a typical trip to the studio, I spotted a nearby neighbor carrying what looked like a perfectly good couch to the dumpster. He assured me that it was in great condition right before he threw it off his balcony. A little disgusted with the way the couch was treated, I drove on to pick up Kate. When hearing this news, Kate immediately shouted "Let's go check it out!" and we found ourselves looking at perfectly GREAT couch and no way to move it. Just then a truck a few feet away started its engine. We knew this fellow Stillwaterian would be eager to help. Well, he wasn't.
 
So we decided to take matters into our own hands...literally. We held the couch on top of the element and drove 1 to 3 mph to downtown Stillwater. After a successful drive, our next challenge was to conquer the long skinny stairway to the second floor.
 
Since we found it in the dumpster, we didn't feel too bad about dropping it several times. We only have a few bruises. Despite endless obstacles, the couch did make it to its final resting place. 
We will forever thank the mysterious neighbor who threw his couch off his balcony.
One man's trash is another man's treasure.

Yes, we found one. There is hope.

how to recycle trash with class

Found this sick trashcan,  it would actually be harder not to recycle with this thing. 

The Tri3 's design is fabulous, no obnoxious logos, just a good looking trashcan.  It saves space by being one unit and the size of the can itself would encourage less waste. Guisset Constance & Cid Gregory designed this pretty trashcan...check out more of their rad designs here. The site isn't in english, but you'd probably just look at the pictures anyway.


Pretty trashcans and Obama-

the birth of a blog

We tried to leave for a few hours tonight...among other reasons for staying, Hayley buttoned her vest CROOK...
Go with your instincts.
You can't think too big.

We made it out for a bit, drank our 32s and made a toast "to the design band that is surviving stillwater", we realized Julie Bond is saving the world one pop tab at time. And she really is. Then we realized, Kate is saving the world one pair of donated jeans at time. Girls in grey and white stripes were all over the place...



Bloggin everyday.

Creeeeepy Technology?


Sometimes I think technology is kind of creepy and so I'm hesitant to use it..but I've given in a little more recently and its been good. Hayley and I both read blogs, so they can't be that creepy...we're going to give it a try. 

Another good one is video iChat. I had only used it a little before this week, with my family mainly, but not as much as I should have. My friend Meaghan, who lives in New York City, and I iChatted (with video) for the first time the other night. It was hilarious. It really isn't creepy. Its fabulous, it's like you are in the same room. She even showed me something SHOCKING out of her journal by holding it up to the screen..how great? And you can take videos and pictures of the chats, which make it that much more entertaining. I think it's genius..can't wait for the next one.
