I mentioned last week that I had been asked to share some reading suggestions with Writers Read. Here’s the post.
So one of the fun things about my job is that I get to meet interesting people and learn new things. Recently, I put together a round up for the Charlotte Observer’s style page on homegrown style makers— local people who are style entreprenuers. One of those people is Katie Stein, a jewelry artist whose work belongs on the pages of the Sundance Catalog. Seriously, it’s exquisite. Anyway, I always have to ask people for head shots– something I hate asking as I know that I personally hate providing them and so I get a little knot in my stomach asking someone to do something I hate. Anyway, I, mostly figure that the hating to ask is mostly my issue and so I barrel through and ask anyway. Well, Katie, who has a really cool studio diary that I love, obviously feels the same way I do about pictures and wrote the funniest blog post about having to give me a picture. I thought I’d share the dark or funny side of the job here. Katie also has a hysterical blog post about her cat that is the funniest thing I’ve read in awhile.
