September Around The Web

September had lots of highlights including several trips to Fairway Creamery, a very extended work happy hour, a KU Football game, Hallmarket, and a bit of normal life in between. Work this month was also a bit of everything with some exciting projects for Christmas and Halloween plus a DIY that should be shared on Think.Make.Share soon! Here are some of my favorite finds around the web:

Hello, Fall!

Tad Carpenter Creative Mornings KC

Last Friday I had a chance to hear Tad Carpenter of Carpenter Collective speak at Creative Mornings KC! It was my first Creative Mornings talk and especially special because Tad was one of my teachers at KU. Here are a couple notes from his talk:

  • Remember we do this because we want to, not because we have to.

  • We GET to do this. Every day you’ve been given a gift to make stuff.

  • When design is good it’s a team effort.

  • I’m never going to be the most talented, but I’ll never be outworked.

  • Play removes limits.

  • It ain’t about the end result, it’s about the exploration.

  • Being creative means you have to keep taking risks. The greatest rewards in life come out of risks.

  • How can your work better the world around us?
