Brief: I was approached by the advocacy department of the Archdiocese of St. Louis to design a campaign to help raise awareness of the deportation and separation of immigrant families in the city of St. Louis and the State of Missouri and to promote the passage of comprehensive immigration reform. As part of the first phase of the campaign, collateral was created to be used as mail action pieces to be signed by parishioners and sent to key decision making legislators in Washington D.C. The second phase of the campaign will include additional print materials and an art installation on Cherokee Street, the thriving epicenter of multicultural St. Louis.

I recently hosted an Urban “Camp Inn,” inviting friends to to bring camp gear, roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories and bask in the glow of a fire (created from a 1969 Sony B&W TV with footage of a real camp fire looped on the screen, and logs made from contact paper and Trader Joe’s coffee cans) all from the safety of the great indoors.
Upcycling is a fancy word for junk shopping, and the ability to junk shop like a pro is a trait that runs in the Siwinski family like athleticism or tallness does in other families. Today’s find? This amazing mirror that ties the bedroom together PERFECTLY (and a steal for $15). Pair that with a mid century office credenza that cost me $0.00 and you’ve got one hell of a bedroom setup for less than some people pay in gas to drive their SUV to the furniture store.
My Genuine Buddy needed a step up to help navigate the sidewalk leading to my apartment… UPCYCLED wood and rubber scraps from a nearby construction revovation, plus a coat of paint, equals one stylish scooter ramp.
