New website: Designed by Jaclyn
Dear readers old & new,
We’ve moved! I wanted to say a quick hello and introduce you to my new home on the internet.
I’ve been putting off writing this for the last few weeks, but feel that I can’t leave my blog hanging in this unknown state for much longer…
I started The Late Afternoon after graduating college and starting life in the real world. While I had a respectable career path (I really did learn a lot and picked up a few good experiences here and there), it was not for me. The Late Afternoon became my nightly escape into a creative world I was drawn to – design, food, photography, typography, colors, and beautifully designed products.
Recently, three years after starting The Late Afternoon, I got “brave” and I left my job and somehow life started shifting. We moved to the city. I started taking graphic design classes. I started designing marketing materials for a non-profit and designed catalogs here (and realized that its possible to like your job). I ran a marathon (aka my life became consumed by running). And suddenly The Late Afternoon didn’t seem to fit any more, posting became half-hearted, and Pinterest started taking over (seriously). As much as I have loved posting and sharing here, this is the part where we say goodbye. Or at least, goodbye for now.
While posting here may be slowing down, I am excited to start developing my portfolio and immersing myself more and more into the design world. Please stay posted!
And lastly and most importantly, thank you for sticking along and reading!
Until next time,
The Late Afternoon
Along with our yellow chair, we also acquired two mid-century modern chair frames with our flat. The chair frames had such a classic mid-century look that I couldn’t wait to make them usable again. After a few weeks of staring at an empty chair frame in our living room, I created a box cushion out of a canvas duck cloth and stuffed the cushion with thick foam. Getting the measurements all lined up when sewing it together was a little tricky, but I am mostly happy with the results, especially the zipper part! The finished chair is a great addition to our living room and lives happily by our fireplace.
