I’m currently enthralled by Tara Gentile’s live webcast at San Francisco’s very own creativeLIVE. If you’re in any kind of market that requires selling, check it out. And for the San Francisco folks, especially San Francisco entrepreneurs, stay in touch to be kept abreast of the workshop I’m teaching about the art of the product description (& just in time for holiday sales!) at Makeshift Society in November.
- I can’t resist when it comes to a beautiful planner, and so this 2014 monthly planner hopped into my Etsy cart straightaway. I love that the last four (blank) pages are perforated into fourths — most people would probably use these bits for passing notes, but I’m clearly going to be utilizing ’em for emergency lipstick blotting. Priorities!
- The deeply wonderful Amy Gretchen writes about moving into a new home.
- Totally charmed by Aiala Hernando’s art and photography store, especially because she primarily photographs food. What to choose — peaches in a bowl, or cherries and bay leaves?
- Have you visited Hello, Month yet? It’s like daily vitamins for your heartbeat.
- Queer girl adolescence and Sailor Moon — um, yes. Thanks, The Toast.
- Why Fashion Should Stop Trying to Be Diverse.
- Creamy Avocado Pasta.
- Amanda always makes me cry in the best way possible: 1000 Words on Love.
- If you’re searching for a premium WordPress theme, Sixteen Nine is one of the more impressive ones I’ve seen lately.
- I love art. I hate hanging pictures. Jess Lively shares the solution.
- Finally: I’ll be writing compelling copy for purpose-driven entrepreneurs in 2014 — because there’s no reason that attracting customers shouldn’t be beautiful. Interested? Hop on the list as I release more information (absolutely, positively no commitment required).
It’s marvelously sunny in San Francisco this weekend. I’m looking forward to filling out the rest of my health insurance forms… in the sunshine.
I also just finished the first week of Rawness of Remembering: Restorative Journaling Through Difficult Times, and the women in the group surprise and enthrall me regularly with their generosity, their bravery, and their willingness to try the new.
With love & squalor,
