can’t you just email it?

Do you have a lot of free time? Chances are, if you're like most people, the answer is a resounding "NO." Event professionals are busy. Clients are busy. Our children are busy. Get the picture? I've long thought that email was a great way to handle the majority of...

Paper Arts: paper cuttings by Eiko Ojala

I don't know whether to feel better or worse: I recently stumbled on the work of Eiko Ojala, and Estonian artist whose papercuts are otherworldly. I've been toying with the idea of doing a series about all the cool things people are doing with paper and this seemed...

the 3D printing revolution and weddings

I just saw a Fast Co. article about a new benchmark in 3D printing. A company called Pirate 3D has raised funds for the production of a 3D printer that will cost less than $400. This price (and some fine features) represent a giant leap forward in accessibility of...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. Are you hip to Thao and the Get Down Stay Down? You should be. And here they are playing a bunch of Moogs. So stinking cool.

deco patterns

I'm working on an incredible client project that has entailed working up some art deco - inspired patterns. I can't wait to share this project when it's complete. In the meantime, which is your...

last night’s dream

I had an incredible dream last night. Since our most recent little one came along, my changing sleep patterns have lead to some pretty vivid dreams. I'm sure my choices in moving picture entertainment play a role, too. In this one, someone had died. A young girl. I...

MUSIC MONDAYS: race, stereotypes and classical music

Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack. There's been quite a discussion brewing regarding audience-building in classical music and I'm fascinated by it. It all started with this post by Greg Sandow. Now, I don't know Greg or his work, but it should be...

lest we forget

I think I'm probably as guilty as most (if not a little more so) of romanticizing a past that doesn't always reflect historical reality. Urban farming, straight razors, penny farthings, dressing up to fly...OK. This post isn't (just) about hipsters. Promise.We've seen...

farewell, old friend!

As you may have already read, Google Reader dies tonight. First, a note on RSS: If you consider yourself creative, inspiration should in some way be important to you. Thanks to the magic of the web, inspiration is published virtually non-stop throughout the world. One...

on the importance of data

My friends (my friends who live just one street over) left their house one morning this week to run some errands. After just two and a half hours, they (and their two sweet little ones) returned home to find that someone had (quite literally) broken and entered into...

MUSIC MONDAYS: The Bad Plus

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. It's hard for someone like me to answer the asinine inquiry: who's your favorite band? It's not something I can easily narrow down. It's not like asking which cut of the pig I like most (pork belly, my friend) or...

oh, come on!

I am so sick of these doomsday headlines about the end of paper. I came across this from Inc. yesterday. The Era of Business Cards Is Dead For crying out loud. Really? Has "the paper business card" really "lost its significance - and utility?" It certainly hasn't lost...

facebook tip for blogging businesses

Several of the people I follow on facebook (dear friends included) keep shooting themselves in the foot and I want them to stop hurting themselves. They'll post some incredible, life-changing content on their blogs and then post something like this on facebook: We...

the colorful gentleman

    When it comes to men's fashion, I'm a big fan of using a small pop of color to contrast a relatively muted palette. We've seen grooms do it with socks and men have long used pocket squares. Here's a few more colorful accessories worth considering. photos courtesy...

classics?

Earlier today, Xochitl tweeted this: Return to the classics? A trend with Paper that I'm noticing with our clients. Stationers, what do you think? http://t.co/5ci3tEKs44 — Xochitl Gonzalez (@theblogsmaid) June 18, 2013 Since the Royal Wedding, pundits and...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Beck’s + Edison

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack. You may have noticed that I have a thing for collaborative projects. This particular project adds the dynamic of juxtaposing the old and new: bringing together the folks at Beck's beer and some fine audio...

I think I’d pee my pants

...if I saw this in the woods. Apparently some park employees thought this would be a fun gag. Clowns in general don't scare me, but this Blair Witch/It mashup would terrify me. Yikes!...

the arrival

We had a kid and he’s amazing. Almost as amazing as his big sister.

my friends are cool: pine-stock

My good friend Matthew of Penny and Finn has a lovely side project with his dad called pine-stock. They're the subject of a giveaway hosted by A Beautiful Mess - you know - the folks that make that iOS photo app all the hipsters are using and the subject of my scorn?...
