There is actually a fun run that is all about COLOR.
The even better thing is that I know about this run because Shannon sent me the link.
To learn more, watch this YouTube vid or visit the The Color Run website.
Registration opens in like 19 locations on February 1st.
I’m considering signing up to RUN in living color this May in Seattle — only problem, the race is on a Sunday and I really like to observe the Sabbath and not do things like this, but I’m super tempted!! BUT … IF we got a big group together AND if we all went to church together too … we could wear white I LOVE Color T-shirts and sing hymns as we run, right??
Fiskars’ famous orange-handled scissors are a design icon.
I have poignant memories of my mother yelling (in a nice way) for someone to find her “orange-handled” scissors. They were her best scissors, so they turned up missing quite often!
These scissors are celebrating their 45th anniversay.
You can help celebrate HERE.
This AMAZING book, James Mollison: Where Children Sleep …
I feel like I may have blogged about this before, but that was before I actually got my hands on a copy. My copy arrived on Wednesday and I haven’t been able to pull this away from my children since. The format of kid photo opposite photo of room and a small chunk of very readable text is the trick!
The diversity is amazing and the contrasts stark and in most cases alarming. Seriously, if you want to give your kids an education in sociology and culture in a very engaging and readable format, this is your book. Trey was blown away and kept saying, “Mom, read this one!” I love the power of photography to create awareness — on most pages about the abundance with which we live!
I just recently blogged about the website 1000Memories and the mobile device app, Shoebox — since then I’ve had the chance to visit with Michael, a member of the Shoebox team and I just really like what these guys are doing! Take a minute to watch co-founder, Jonathan’s TEDx talk and the little Shoebox Stories clip about Abbey — then go download the App and get started scanning your one-of-a-kind pictures. It’s super EASY and super IMPORTANT!
I’m sure I’ve blogged about Method before. I LOVE nearly every product I’ve tried, except for anything with a verbena scent, which I actually returned to Target (it was that nasty!) Anyway, I listened to a presentation that Method co-founder Adam Lowry gave to entrepreneurs at Stanford (click to watch!) and it just made me LOVE the company and the products even more. I love well-designed and good-for-the-world products and the people who make them!
I’m thinking that with teaching my class, I can probably eek out a Friday FIVE every other week or so, other than that — my blog will be a back burner thing. BUT I’m here and happy and plugging along. If I upload photos later, I’ll show you the cute Valentine cards I whipped up this morning for visiting teaching. I LOVE that I have a ready supply of pattern paper and ribbon — makes life so fun!
