Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Looking back over 2011

December 23, 2011

Bryony gave me the idea of doing a year-in-review post, looking back over everything that happened in 2011.

Ready? Ok, here are some of my highlights!

Phew! I know I’m missing some, but that’s a pretty good list.

Tonight we begin another round of road trips–CT, VT, NJ, and NY. Looking forward to spending Christmas time with family and friends. It will be a little quiet around here until next year(!) but I’ll be chattering away on twitter. Come say hello!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everybody!

Working Wednesday: Studio Mind Castle’s Creative Process…

December 21, 2011




Enjoy this little video the design studio production company Mindcastle made of creating their holiday card a few years ago.

Impressive, right?

Does your business send out holiday cards? I know that’s something everyone is supposed to do. But unfortunately, I never seem to get it together with all the other craziness going on.

I’m thinking Valentines Day cards instead…

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs played a surprise benefit show in Brooklyn the other day–complete with Karen O dressed as Santa Claus himself– and my brother Sam was there to capture it for work.

Have you ever seen them live? They put on a fantastic show.

Marcell The Shell With Shoes On

Have you met “Marcel The Shell With Shoes On”? (By Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate.) Somehow I missed him the first go round, you know, when he became an internet sensation. But once I stumbled on the latest video I jumped on board:

Gah! So good.

He has a book now too!

Isn’t that a cute photo? It’s from Thanksgiving…

Working Wednesdays: Choose your own adventure Video!

December 14, 2011

Have you guys seen Madewell’s genius online video campaign? It’s basically a “choose your own adventure” video.

I haven’t seen anyone else use this yet and I think it’s just brilliant. Usually advertising gives me this icky feeling in the pit of my stomach, but campaigns like this–perfectly styled and executed– make me so excited.

Video Monday: The Goodwin Project

Have you heard of The Goodwin Project?

A young family leaves their home on Kauai…It is what they will learn, what they bring others, what they will pass on to their children in the hyper-expanded classroom, the lab of direct being; a legacy passed from a father to his family.

…Together with a small film crew the Goodwins will document how they are changed by their travels, and the effect they have on their acquaintances, hosts, friends and ticket agents as they circumnavigate our planet, through 18 countries and four seasons. This is the story of their encounters with the world.

They step into the current faithfully, inquisitively, boldly and with good will.

I’m fairly certain I couldn’t live like this. Which is a little bit sad to me. I love traveling, but I’m pretty sure my little homebody-self would have a hard time being so untethered. But I love that other people can embrace a life of adventure. It seems like a magical way to raise a family.

Who knows? Maybe some day I’ll get to prove myself wrong…

Happy Birthday Rob!
