you can’t get one just like the last one

Search traffic is such a mixed bag.Sometimes it completely boggles me the path some of my visitors take to get from that little white box (so full of potential) to my website.Searching for a certain diet company's logo? There's a good chance you'll end up here. Have questions (especially ones I've yet to answer) about acrylic wedding invitations? We'll probably be crossing paths soon.Some of it's my own doing and easily fixable. I could get rid...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Tiny Desk Concerts

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack.I. LOVE. Tiny Desk Concerts.It's an NPR thing. I'm pretty sure you'll dig TDC even if you don't dig NPR. The stripped down, short format is a great retreat from the world. I find myself tuning in and checking out for fifteen minutes a couple times a week. It's my musical meditation.My favorite may very well be this one from tUnE-yArDs.Here are a couple others I love:The inimitable...

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 client communication. I'm rarely in the same geographic area as my clients, so correspondence by email can be a convenient way to discuss details. Sure, many client relationships start with...

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 like a perfect way to start us off.

This price (and some fine features) represent a giant leap forward in accessibility of in-home 3D printing. And, while there's some doubt as to whether 3D printing will truly become ubiquitous, I do think it is an important part of the...
