Coffee Love Take-Out Cup Cozy

If you’re in need of a coffee fix this morning, check out this fabulous coffee related website that’s now my new favorite:

coffee served daily 1000 cups of coffee

Here’s a little bit about Kim, and the idea behind this caffeinated blog:

I love blogging and connecting with other people, especially folks who have very different lives from my own. That was one of my favorite parts of doing Project 365, being inspired by other photographers, and enjoying their points of view on the day. I’ve been wanting to do an interactive blog for a long time, one where lots of people could participate. Last October I was with some friends in Chico (we were there for a reunion of the design department at California State University Chico, where we had gone to school over 30 years ago) and several of us pulled out our cameras to photograph our coffees before we drank them. At first I envisioned this project for a specific group of friends, but then I became more excited about opening it up, and seeing where it took me.

Coffee is a great connector. It is home, it’s international, it’s private, it’s social. It’s plain and it’s beautiful. And I drink it daily….in fact several times a day. 1000 cups of coffee seemed like to much that it would force me to photograph it in new ways, and really look at it from every angle. It would give me an excuse to learn more about coffee, and an even better excuse to make coffee dates with my friends. I have been reaching out to my friends, and flickr contacts, and everyone is delighted to participate. Just this week I started reaching out to people I don’t know…when I find a photo on flickr I love, I check out the photographer and try to guess if they’d be interested, and then write them a letter. That’s how I met Lana, an art student from Moscow, living in NYC, who has been shooting coffee for years. I’ve also had several people I don’t know send me coffee photos. It’s always exciting to wake up in the morning and see what shows up in my mailbox.

I have no idea where this will go. I am only at photo #50, and have 950 more to go. I’ve already made so many discoveries…and I expect there will be many more.
It’s been energizing and fun, and really, that’s the most one can expect from blogging and from coffee!

I am happy to have contributed a few photos to this blog– Check out day 54, day 45, and day 41.

I hope you’ll make coffeeserveddaily a stop that you’ll enjoy everyday with your own daily cup of coffee!

I am so inspired by Kim and her blog that I have decided to do my own 1000 coffee cup project. Follow my project on flickr!

happy saturday people!

my big plans for the day? Breakfast with my mom and grandma, working on a publicity postcard for the James Downing Theatre’s next show (coming up in March) “The Fantasticks“, working on my coffee paintings (all 5 of them), and dinner with my friend! (i don’t know about you, but i’m pretty stoked…)

Happy Friday! I’m so glad it’s the weekend! Actually, I can’t complain. I had a pretty good week. I got to play in the makeshift photo studio at work for a couple of days. That was cool!! (now I want some of those professional light sets– man, they are waaaaaaay better than the little desk lamps we use at home!)  I’m hoping that they like the shots so that I’ll get to photograph more often. Right now, we’re trying to photograph little odds and ends for the web– stuff that’s not cost effective to send to a real studio, but we still need an image for. Bring it on I say. Bring it on!!!!

As promised, here is my new painting!

You can find this for sale in my Art Fire and etsy store!

(I am digging the whole coffee series. I’ve got one more in the works!)

Happy Friday! I’m pretty glad it’s finally Friday. I get to hang out with my grandma again! Shhhh… don’t tell her– Its supposed to be a surprise. Boy, will she be surprised (and pissed!) that I’ll be there again! (hee hee!) She totally has some sort of plan, (probably to stand on a chair and clean something?) and she was nosy about what time mom was getting up, and leaving for work, and quite adamant about making sure I would be going to work… she definitely has something up her sleeve! Ah, she’s so cute!

So, today I added one of my newest paintings in my Art Fire and Etsy shops.  I just **LOVE** this painting so much!
