上午9:30 (起床): 前一天晚上我凌晨4點才上床睡覺，早上9:30一起床就和我的設計師Joanna互傳短信，決定我們即將打印賀卡的顏色。
9:30am (Waking Up): I went to bed at 4am the night before and I’m woken up at 9:30 to respond to text messages from my designer Joanna who is on press with our printer. We text back and forth to approve colors for a run of greeting cards.
上午10點 (準備): 在昏昏欲睡的公事傳訊後，我已經起來準備好全新的一天。10am (Getting Ready): After dozing in and out of sleepy texts I am up and getting ready for the day.
上午11點 (買咖啡): 在11點之前，我得出門趕一個會議，所以我犧牲了我打算前往當地的咖啡館。相反地，我到了我家附近的星巴克和我最喜歡的咖啡師Mike聊聊Rifle和他找工作的最新情況。
11am (Coffee Run): By 11am I’m rushing out the door to make a meeting so I sacrifice my intended trip to the local coffee shop. Instead, I swing by my neighborhood Starbucks where my favorite barista Mike chats with me for a few minutes about Rifle and an update on his job search.
11:30am (Arriving to the studio): I arrive at the studio to find our meeting is delayed so I check emails and wrap my head around the day’s tasks.
中午12點 (創意團隊): 我和我的創意團隊召開了緊急會議通過了幾個任務，與創意總監Carrie聯繫，為即將到來的設計合作做準備。
12pm (Creative Team): I pass off a few urgent tasks to the creative team, touch base with Carrie (my Director of Creative Development), and prep for a phone call at 1pm about an upcoming design collaboration.
下午1:30 (壁紙檢閱): 我們剛剛收到即將推出的商品系列中的壁紙樣本，花些時間與Hygge和West檢查與討論顏色。
1:30pm (Wallpaper Review: We’ve just received new wallpaper samples for our upcoming collection with Hygge & West and I take time to review colors.
下午2點 (網站會議): 我們終於和我們的網站設計師Mike商討品牌的官方網站，在啟動之前去了解還有甚麼地方還需要完成。新的網站已經籌備了一段時間，希望每個細節都能完全掌握到，在下星期能完美呈現。 (大家一起祈求好運)。
2pm (Website meeting): We finally have our meeting with our web designer Mike where we go over what still needs to get done before the launch. The new site has been in the works for a long time and we’re trying to wrap up every little detail in order to (hopefully) go live next week (everyone crosses fingers and knocks on wood).
下午3點半至下午6點 (壁紙審查和會議)：我和我的設計師Erica作深度的壁紙樣本檢討，決定哪些沒問題，哪些需要調整。然後還有一個績效考核和創意部門的會議 (今天是充滿的會議的一天!) 在這裡我們談論的即將到來的計劃，並準備五月的全國文具展。
3:30pm-6pm (Wallpaper reviews and meetings): I review our wallpaper samples in depth with my designer Erica and we decide which to approve and which ones need tweaks. I then have a performance review and creative team meeting (today is full of meetings!) where we talk about what projects are on the horizon and preparations for the National Stationery Show in May.
下午6點 (週末待辦事項清單): 與團隊們完成最後一輪討論與任務後，接著開始列出週末須要完成的事項。我和Carrie討論emails，並討論如何讓少數幾個產品的包裝改善得更好。好吧! 即使在週末工作狂還是停不了。
6pm (Weekend to do list): I make final rounds to the creative team to review some of the day’s tasks and then go over my to do list with Carrie. We discuss emails, make decisions and talk about how to make packaging better on a few products. I realize i have a crazy amount of work for the weekend.
晚上7:30 (與Nathan開會): 辦公時間幾乎結束了，現在我有機會忙我個人的設計工作。Nathan (我的丈夫兼事業夥伴) 和Mike和我討論了一下有關網站的改變和計劃，並且也提到我們週末到下週的工作內容和任務。
7:30pm (Meeting with Nathan): Most of the office is gone by now and I get a chance to work on a few of my own design tasks. I also meet with Nathan (my husband and business partner) and Mike about website changes and plans. We talk through issues and tasks that we’ll be working on over the weekend and into next week.
晚上9點 (晚餐): Nathan、Mike和我如同饑餓的野獸，一整天工作下來只吃了同事所買的甜甜圈。再進行冗長的討論後，我們在當地一間很棒的泰式餐廳飽餐一頓。
9pm (Dinner): Nathan, Mike and I all realize we’re starving beasts because none of us have stopped working all day to eat (other than the donuts someone brought to the office) and after a lengthy debate on which local Thai place is best my pick wins and we eat until we stuff ourselves.
晚上10:30 (繪畫): 一回到家，我就換上舒適的衣服，倒了一杯酒，並開始繪畫。這是一天之中我真正需要作的事 - 繪畫。我打算畫到凌晨4點，為文具展的新產品作準備。
10:30pm (Painting): I head home, change into something comfortable, pour a glass of wine and start painting. This is the first moment I have gotten all day to get to what I really need to do. I plan to paint until around 4am as I work on new products for the Stationery Show.
