Picture Perfect

Jul 31st, 2015

I have what some of my friends think of as a quirky habit. I guess it started about 10 years ago when I visited Barcelona with my sister. We were strolling along, taking in the energy and excitement of the city, when I was diverted by something along a side street. I turned, dragging my […]

What Do You Want to Be?

May 15th, 2015

When I was eight years old I knew I would be a writer one day. I just did. Sure, as I got older I thought, well maybe I will be a teacher or maybe I will go to law school…but something always pulled me back. Whether it was a newspaper or magazine or press releases, […]

Spring is in Session

Apr 30th, 2015

Now that the fierce, winter weather is finally (knock on wood) behind us, it’s time to think warm, spring thoughts: sunny days, pleasant temps, open windows. Personally, I like to think about spring as the perfect time for new beginnings and learning opportunities … let’s call it your “spring resolutions.” Some northeastern architects resolved to […]

Okay, we get it. Architects are busy people. And, it can be tough to get all the continuing education credits you need. But rest assured, I am here to help. What if I told you I know a way you can earn up to five continuing education units at the same place, same day. You’ll […]

Girl Meets Glass

Feb 17th, 2015

This is a blog that’s been a long time coming. I’ve started it a number of times, and have never been able to finish it or make it convey exactly what I wanted. It’s tough, you see, because it’s about a person, and I don’t often like to write about people on a personal level. […]

Bathroom Banter

Dec 11th, 2014

Warning! Warning! Warning! I am stepping far out of my comfort zone for this blog, pulling out all the stops, and pouring out all my opinions–which I usually keep to myself. Today’s subject: bathroom remodels. Like so many others, I think the bathroom is a great place for glass. You’ve got shower enclosures, countertops and […]

My Favorite Things

Oct 31st, 2014

Ask anyone and they’ll tell you, there is nothing out there quite like glasstec. The show is big. Really big. Whatever you need, you’re probably going to find it there. Take a walk through the glass technology live pavilion and you’ll surely find something you want; only to be saddened to learn those displays are […]

Best Laid Plans

Sep 12th, 2014

I had planned to tell you all about this week’s GlassBuild America show, which was held in Las Vegas. I thought you’d like to hear about how excited so many of the exhibitors were to tell us how busy they’ve been. I was going to tell you about the overall optimism and happiness from companies […]

School Days

Aug 20th, 2014

The days are still long and temperatures are still high, but that dreaded day for so many has finally arrived: back to school. Thinking of all the kids heading to school, whether it’s the first day of kindergarten or the first of their senior year in high school, is nostalgic. As much as I’d prefer […]

My Kind of Town

Greetings from Chicago! I am excited to be back here for the American Institute of Architects National Convention. This is one of my favorite trade shows, and the trade show is packed with tons of new glass and metal products and as well as attendees taking them all in. Of course the USGlass/Architects’ Guide to […]
