best birthday gift ever...

Well it was a weekend full of Birthday celebration. My brother's birthday was Saturday and mine is Wednesday. My dad bought me these fleece lined cCrocs. I LOVE them. They are so warm and so comfy. I saw them in Colorado and then I had totally forgotten about them. I was so excited when I opened the gift. I did not want to put on real shoes to come to work today :)

time machine chair

Well I guess I have been neglecting my blog. Starting today I will try to do better...

Tonight is the SDAF Chairity Acution. Every year crazy designers (us) make a chair and it is auctioned off. Well, we usually end up buying ours back. This years chair is a 2-year-in-the-making palooza!

We finished last night at 12:00 am. YEAH! I was sewing like crazy. But we made it and its fun. Even the control panels light up! That is so next level!

So...we will see if we end up buying it back tonight. We probably looks pretty cool in our office :)

design camp i love thee...

Well, the adventure began on Thursday afternoon. We loaded up the rental vehicle with suitcases for four girls and one guy (sorry Jon). We headed North to Nisswa, Mn. When we arrived at the lodge they did not have a reservation for us for that evening. They said we were supposed to arrive the next day. Crap! They were able to find us a room. Well, it was actually a condo. It had five bedrooms, a game room, a full kitchen and a really cool deck. We were all a little sad that it was only for one night. The next morning we got up and packed again (yuck) and registered for Design Camp. We had a little time so we went for a drive and went into town for a really quick shopping trip.

Design Camp officially began at 1:00 pm. We started off with a speaker. He was really cool. He is a poster designer and screen prints most of his stuff himself. He was cool! Here is his website. You can also purchase his posters there:

Next to a workshop. The one I have been waiting for the most! The workshop was non-computer aided book binding. Wow, this could be my new favorite project. I will totally have to do more of this~!

That night they were having a mixer dinner. We skipped this part. We went into Baxter to the Black Bear Lodge for dinner. It was fun! It was 3 Paulsen people and 2 HenkinSchultz girls. We had fun. When we got back to our cabins we went to Karaoke. It was fun, really packed and kind of hot in the bar at the Lodge, but fun none the less.

The next day was full of speakers & workshops. One of my favorite workshops was this a photography. Her name is Nanacy Bundt. She has traveled everywhere and had some amazing photographs. She was very creative and fun to listen to. Here is her website:

We had one more speaker on Sunday and then we had to head back to South Dakota. It was fun and we didn't really want to leave. Its so beautiful up there. I totally feel more creative now! If you would like to read Katie's account check out her blog:

I have also posted a few more photos on my flickr site:

Well its back to reality this week. I was so busy yesterday that I did not have time to post more photos. :)

Saturday was probably my favorite day of vacation. We went to Estes Park. I LOVE that place. Someday I am going to live there. They were having an elk festival (I think they are cute!). This is the time of year the elk mate. So they are all over. The town was packed, but it was still totally worth it.

Sunday was the 8 hour dive back. By the time I arrived in Sioux Falls, I was a little tired of driving.

Next: Design Camp! We leave tomorrow. I just want to see more fall, but first I have to make it through today.

I have posted the rest of my vacation photos on my filckr site:

Enjoy :)
