I just finished reading “First, We Make the Beast Beautiful” by Sarah Wilson. It’s the first book I’ve read, maybe ever, in which I was frantically taking notes while reading it. My spouse and I have been struggling with anxiety lately, and this book really got to me. I found the words and exercises very helpful, and I figured I’d share my rather unfocused notes with you.

A few years back, my pal Stephen got us a Jetpack sign for our now deprecated office. I’ve finally painted the old sign, which now can be considered vintage because the logo has been redesigned. I used One Shot paints to make the logo and lettering nice and glossy, and I used standard flat interior paint for contrast. I’m pleased with the results, and I plan on gifting this shiny thing to Derek. ( He doesn’t read my blog, so I’m not really spoiling anything for him. )
Anyway, have a peak:Continue reading “Vintage Jetpack Sign”
