My last day at Deskey.

After six years, today was my last day at Deskey. This is what my office looked like at the end of last week before I accepted the offer for my new position…

And here’s what it looked like this morning…

I’m going to miss being able to see Carew Tower out of my office window…

I’m not going miss that terrible ArtWorks mural of the pale lady staring at me all day…

I’m really going to miss watching the construction across the street take shape…

You know it’s time to move on when that’s the thing you’re really going to miss the most…

Thanks for a good six years, Deskey. Best wishes for your continued success. Say what you will, it’s definitely been an experience…

Turning the page, and onto the next chapter. We’ll be staying in Cincinnati. I’m joining the Midwest office of the Grey Group as a Senior Designer. I’m sooo excited about this new adventure.ย  My first day will be next Wednesday.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘‹โค๏ธ

Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration

Deskey hosted their annual Opening Day Celebration

It was a pretty fun afternoon. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do any Opening Day front window installations this year. Click to see all the photos I took at Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration. ๐Ÿ˜€โšพ๏ธ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ†โค๏ธ

Deskey Pi Day Pie Contest.

Deskey had a Pi Day Pie Contest today to celebrate Pi Day on 3.14…

There were two savory pies and five sweet pies. All of them were pretty tasty. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅงโค๏ธ

Happy Fat Tuesday.

There was King Cake at work today for Fat Tuesday…

King Cake is pretty darn tasty. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ถโค๏ธ

Deskey chili cookoff.

At work today, there was a Deskey chili cookoff

There were even celebrity guest judges from Arnold’s because everything has to be a dang competition…

And Becky was the winner with her #4 chili…

And then there were cupcakes for January birthdays…

And we also revealed our Deskey Secret Valentines. It made for a pretty fun afternoon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ–๏ธโค๏ธ

Deskey Secret Valentines.

We drew names at work for Deskey Secret Valentines. I drew our proofreader, Susan and here are the valentines I made for her…

I was just going to do the little photo of her dog Jack who is a pretty funny little dog. He reminds me a lot of Oscar. But then I was looking at Pinterest and saw these other ideas that I thought were pretty cute as well. The inside of little card said, “Thanks a LATTE for all you do.” And inside the dynamite sticks were stacks of Reese’s mini peanut butter cups. Pinterest is awesome for getting ideas for stuff like this.

Here’s the Deskey Secret Valentine that I received…

I got this awesome little owl made out of seashells…

And that means the seashell bunny I got from the Deskey White Elephant gift exchange a couple of years back has a new best friend…

Deskey Secret Valentines are pretty fun. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿฐโค๏ธ

My work set-up.

I took a photo of my set-up at work this morning. I have it pretty nice…

The MacBook and iPad are mine from home. Work provides the desktop with the dual monitors and the really nice view of downtown Cincinnati. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ™๏ธโค๏ธ

Watch that first step.

They were working on the elevator today at work…

Have you ever looked up a six-floor elevator shaft before?

Me either. Watch that first step. It’s a doozie. Taken with Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ†™โค๏ธ

Seen and noted: Indoor Snowball Fight.

I saw this at work today…

An indoor snowball fight sounds like so much fun. We’re going to have to track one of these down for our home. ๐Ÿ˜€โ„๏ธโค๏ธ
