A Bit o’ the Green

A Bit o’ the Green

I’m looking out the window at a bleak landscape: patches of snow on the ground, a milky gleam where the sun’s shining behind the clouds, and everything is drab, drab, drab. Oh, and, it’s 27.5 degrees out, with a nice raw breeze. That said, there are signs of spring—the tell-tale tips of daffs and crocuses, […]

Vojtěch Kubašta Exhibit – Part 1

Let me start right off by saying that if you’re anywhere within a day’s journey of New York City, and can carve the time out between now and Saturday to get downtown, then plan a trip to go see the “Pop-Ups from Prague: A Centennial Celebration of the Graphic Artistry of Vojtěch Kubašta (1914-1992)” exhibit […]

In Clover – St. Patrick’s Day gift bundle ideas, with Ginko Papers

In Clover – St. Patrick’s Day gift bundle ideas, with Ginko Papers

I’m one of those people who loves giving gifts. And, in particular, I love to give “layered” gifts, with several items to open, all united by a certain theme. The more nooks and crannies and fun gifties to discover, the better. I’m always on the lookout for products that are happy, useful, and not outrageously […]

Spring is in the Air – Part 2

Spring is in the Air – Part 2

So, there’s another storm bearing down on a good portion of the country. Many of us should check (for seemingly the hundredth time this season), to see if there’s any sand, deicer, or salt left, and whether the handle on the shovel is going to make it through another heavy snowfall. But, in the interest […]

Spring is in the Air – Part 1

Spring is in the Air – Part 1

I’ve been getting some nifty e-mails from folks lately, sharing their new designs for spring. And, I’ll admit it, after the winter we’ve been having, even I—usually a fan of the snowiest season—am ready to let it go in exchange for some blue sky, a warm breeze, and a green shoot popping up here and […]

I’m giving myself a deadline of the end of this week to make my momentous calendar decision. And, instead of it getting easier as I go along, it’s getting more and more difficult. There’s too much calendar-y goodness out there. Here’s some more of it… Plane Paper Plane Paper’s laser-cut 2014 Geometric Calendar combines great […]

In one of those delicious little ironies, my three biggest work deadlines of the year fall within the same two weeks. And, those two weeks fall right smack in the middle of the holiday season. So, while I’m psyched about the work, it does mean I haven’t been posting much, lately. (Next year, I’ll put […]
