Besides lots of other goodies, the grand prize is– yup, you guessed it– your drawing on their cover!

Working Wednesday: Creative Project Management

Project Management Process

I’m in love with this graphic I found on Scoutie Girl, by Eleanor Mayrhofer of e.m.papers. For me, seeing it laid out visually makes everything clearer.  Check out all the posts on this subject here.

Make Your Own: Watercolor Set

Check out these directions, on One Golden Apple,  to make your own water color set!  What a cool idea. It would make a great present too!

Video Monday: Artis Zoo Ad Campaign

July 25, 2011

Video Mondays

This ad campain by Dawn for “Artis, Royal Amsterdam Zoo” is wonderful.  To have an element that can be physically “viral” is just so fun.  I think my favorite part though is that the vinyl-sticker-animal-babies are life-sized.

Our wedding photos from Fat Orange Cat Studios

I’ve been meaning to post pictures of the most lovely package we got in the mail last week.  Can you guess what it is?  Our wedding photographs!

How gorgeous?!  And completely unexpected– to me at least.  I was just waiting for a dvd  in the mail. Not all this.

Plus a custom stamp?  (Which sadly, I did not spot until our camera ran out of juice.)

And can you tell she’s also a calligrapher?  (Deemed one of “Boston’s Best.” Yep, it’s true.)

It’s not like you need another reason to work with Li from Fat Orange Cat Studios: the lady takes brilliant photos. (Exhibits A, B, C… I can go on folks…)  But now you definitely should– so you, too, can get an amazing package of pretty goodies in the mail.

Our Wedding is Featured on Ruffled!

Our wedding on Ruffled!

Our wedding is featured on Ruffled today!*  Hurray and big props to Li, photographer extraordinaire, and husband Dan, from Fat Orange Cat Studios.  And big thank yous to our friends and families who were such helpful, and tireless (and patient!) worker-bees.

If I do say so myself, we pulled it off splendidly!

Click on over to Ruffled to see the rest.

*Li actually submitted the photos today, so we were shocked to see it posted moments later. Crazy.  Thanks Ruffled!

Video Monday: Inspiration from 2005 Steve Jobs

July 18, 2011

Video Mondays

Have you all seen this already? –Steve Jobs’ Standford commencement speech in 2005?  I just watched it a few days ago and found it inspiring.  This is my favorite part:

You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future…believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path. And that will make all the difference.

Belated Happy 4th of July

July 15, 2011

These are the fireworks my dad and his friend set off for the 4th of July. I wish there was something to show the scale, because these babies were no joke. They were huge.

And “fabulous”. Natch.

Good job, Papa!

Have a great weekend everybody.
