Todo: Feedback on Weave

Posted on

It’s true, even if we attempt to increase our productivity, it’s often that “last minute” that really drives the project forward! For me, it’s often the most creative moment in a project too.

Todo: 9 Tips To Increase Your Focus

Productivity always seems to elude us at one time or another. I  love this graphic by Yumi Sakugawa with nine tips for increasing your focus when you need it! I really believe in her “Focus on 3 tasks per day”. It’s true when I create my top 3 todos and I complete them, it leaves me with a sense of accomplishment and the mental space to create my next task list! What are your top tips for increasing productivity and focus?

Todo: Read Top 5 Tools For A Small Business

Posted on

Admittedly, I am big fan of “Top #” lists. Running a small business means I can’t sort through the software, cloud based services and social media at my leisure. Sycamore Street Press made this sweet little list of tools they couldn’t live without.

An interesting mention on their list was FreshBooks – cloud based inventory management and invoicing.  From their review “….It’s all cloud based, which makes it easy to manage orders while traveling with our laptop/iphone as well as accessing our account from multiple computers in our shop. It is simple and convenient.

Add a Weave “Todo” and check the list. Maybe you’ll find cool tools or new ways to use existing ones! Link

NerdWallet’s Mother’s Day Your Way Winner

Posted on

Congrats to the winners of the NerdWallet Mother’s Day Your Way Winners. I selected ForeignSpell’s tutorial entitled “A Song For Mama” as the craft category winner.  I thought it was a very sweet and inspired tutorial. Most anyone would enjoy a hand carved print from their loved one.  The imperfections make it charming with this linocut method and easy for people of all ages to do.
