The Coffee Table with Emma Robertson
Hello Gigglers and welcome back to The Coffee Table where we get to hear what wakes you up and inspires you! Today’s guest, originally from Dallas, TX and now living in San Francisco, knits together her passions of graphic design, blogging and literally knitting over at Emmadime:
I am currently putting the finishing touches on my new portfolio & blog! A redesign was long overdue – I spend so much time on these platforms so it’s important for me to keep them fresh, relevant, and exciting! Being a freelance graphic designer & expressing myself visually is so important to me. It will always keep me going! In 2014, I have plans to push a business idea that involves really awesome approachable web design. So stay tuned if that’s your thing, ha! Oh also, I released my first book, Knitting By Design, back in October! I have been riding the wave that came from that!
My sweet sweet boyfriend makes me coffee every morning. He is a morning person, I am not, so this works out perfectly. The French Press was our method of madness for the longest time but now we’ve moved onto an AeroPress. It’s a bit more involved (which is fun) and creates a much different end result. I take cream and sugar when I’m in a good mood.
It’s the Little Things
- riding my bike everywhere!!
- knitting cool pieces for my closet
- action movies
My Coffee Table
On my table: A journal designed by my studio mate, Lo Crosier, my new computer, yay! I have been using the same one since college (SO BAD!!), wooden flower coasters from LEIF, and my fern in a MUJI wooden bowl.
