StellaMarina Originata 28.10.05



Ciao mi amici,
Thus thinking through my life as an italian flirt/designer. I have thought of a name that always bring joy to my heart. I have always loved the ocean. I could not live away from the ocean ever. The ocean is part of my heritage on all parts of my family life. I live in Boston for one. My moms famiglia is from Sicily, Italia for two. My in-laws live in a tiny town in Massachusetts called Rockport(which i have always loved visiting day in and out both as a child and then I met my wonderful husband who always supports whatever I do)......Switchbox! Think! Thanks michelle for showing me how random i can truly be. Anyways back to my point...

My Papa and Nana had a war when I was in the womb. They warred over what my name would be. My Nana wanted to name me Marina. My Papa wanted me to be named Lucia. My Mamma won out(she usually does...i think i get my persuasive abilities from her) and named me Marisa which has that ring like Lucia would have had and Marina is close to my name. Do not even ask me where my mamma got my name because then you would know that I too can resemble Hollywood royalty....er ...um....italian hollywoood royalty....Switchbox...get to the point!

So I have always thought of a starfish being a beautiful, delicate creature. I also see starfish as having the ability to adapt to any task. I channeled my energy into researching the word for Starfish en Italiano and I found my new name for hopefully my freelance design.....Its a work in progress so my name might be altered
but for now on a friday with my brain feeling intact(thank you to the gym yesterday for giving me that pep) I feel like this new name has promise. Just as my career in Graphic Design has promise too. Now i have to keep on track and really develop and work on promoting this new idea. I think this new name makes me happy. Hope it flys!

Have a wonderful rest of your day and a fabulous weekend!
