Over the past few weeks, Kelli and I have been working around the clock on the second Design*Sponge book (you can check out the first here). Every waking moment has been devoted to squeezing as many photoshoots as possible into July and August (our book is due in September!) and we have been fueling ourselves on sheer excitement — and lots of coffee. Earlier this week Kelli flew out from California to stay with us in upstate New York and plan the final shoots in person, so we didn’t make any mistakes. Because when you’re planning photoshoots from Melbourne to Nigeria to Los Angeles, there are a lot of moving pieces to coordinate.
Our lives consist mainly of Excel sheets, Google calendar docs, call sheets and copious amounts of caffeine right now, so I thought I’d give a little nod to our biggest book fuel right now — coffee — in the form of a mug roundup. Our mug collection has grown 3-fold this summer as I give into my caffeine love, so this is a good idea of what it looks like to live and work at the DS “office” upstate now. xo, grace
*Thank you for your patience and understanding with our slightly abbreviated posting schedule this summer. I didn’t want to rush or publish half-thought posts while I was working on the final book crunch, so we’ll be running 3 posts a day until September instead of four. But at the end of August we’ll be in the home stretch and things will go back to normal after the Labor Day holiday.
