Hi, and welcome to my world.
I am 28, and live in New York City with my dachshund, Basel. A few years ago I graduated from architecture school with a Masters degree, and no job. While taking some time off, I put all of my energy into starting up my own little design firm, Zipper8Design which then expanded to lighting design. I sell my products on Etsy, (http://zipper8design.etsy.com and http://zipper8lighting.etsy.com) and have been loving every minute of it.
In starting my business, I’ve learned a lot about product design, along with my own personal design aesthetic. And if I have learned one main thing, its how important the principles of recycling have become to me, and that I love using unconventional household materials to create new and amazing design pieces. So from this realization was born my blog, “the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Redecorate.” And from this blog concept came the 30x30x3 project, my own personal mission to create and blog about 30 projects in 30 weeks, based on the 3 R’s.
Some will be my own original ideas, and some will be projects I’ve spotted elsewhere on the net. I’ll try to make as many projects as I can into tutorials, but some just won’t be worth it, and some will be based on better tutorials elsewhere.
But most importantly, what goes around comes around, so if I’ve followed your tutorial, or been influenced by your project, I’ll link back to you. All I ask, is that if you are interested in showing one of my projects, you kindly do the same. If you would like to reach me for any reason, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply leave a comment!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have seen something you liked, and might come back again soon.
