Mission Objectives: Education and Inspiration

I’ve designed quite a few patterns in a short amount of time, and after working nonstop, I wanted to take a break from the studio. I have company at the moment, so of course, we needed to entertain as well. Yesterday, we combined entertainment for our house guests with collecting new inspiration. Los Angeles has so many places to see new things, get inspired, and explore. I love a day out on the metro, exploring the city!

We saw so many things at the California Science Center that I will break down my visit into a few different posts. We will start with the Endeavour, something Angelenos are so proud to call their own, and so happy to have right here at home. The one and only sonic boom I have ever heard was when the Endeavour made its last reentry from its last space mission. And when it flew back to California and made its way through the city to its final resting spot at the Science Center, my children took a break from school to watch it fly over, and I stood in the middle of my street with my neighbors staring at the sky waiting to catch a glimpse. As you will see in my photos below, it is an impressive sight, worthy of inspiration.

Inspiring on the outside and inside!
