your home is a puzzle, your things are the pieces, we just put the puzzle together.
we have been doing puzzles for more than 10 years,
angela has been photographing what we do for just 10 months...
people used to ask to see photos of our work and i would say something like...
"because i work with what people have, my work does not photograph well. i am not a real designer who buys designer things that look like a magazine cover. our clients happy words tell our story more than any photo ever could. here is a list of references."
it was the truth at the time.
but now that i see what we do through angela's eyes, i know this was more true...
"i'm a psycho perfectionist. nothing is ever good enough for me. i feel like a fraud and i worry that someday somebody is going to knock on my door, ask for my designer card, and tell me i have to get a real job."
tim says i have impostor syndrome. but i'm all like "no, i don't just think i suck. i really suck."
i see a photo of a stack of old family bibles found tucked away on a top shelf.
i see perfection in the imperfection of the finished puzzle.
i see truth and beauty.
you don't suck either.
peace be with you.
