Its a constant shuffle at my desk - music, podcasts and books - whatever will inspire me keep me moving on projects and a lot of the time keep me sitting at my desk!  Some of my favorites this year: This American Life - really great episodes: Super Powers, The Fear of Sleep, The Good Guys, 20 Acts in 20 Minutes, Switched at Birth, Americans in Paris, In Dog we trust…ok really they are all good. Fresh Air - so many great interviews - especially love her interviews with comedians - Louis CK, Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler and love her interview with Maurice Sendak - I think of it often. Dinner Party Download - all great but this little story about the easter bunny made me laugh SOOO hard. Serial. of course. Design Sponge podcast - after the jump. WTF with Marc Maron - some of my recent favorites - Louis CK, Julia Sweeney, Bret Easton Ellis, Will Ferrell, Remembering Robin Williams. The Moth - great story telling - this one in particular I love - Angel  


Lots of good interviews and music on World Cafe and All Songs Considered love Tiny Desk Concerts on NPR oh and of course First Listens. Lots of liked mixes on 8tracks

Audio books and comedians - Mike Birbiglia - 2 drink mike is really funny, All of Louis CK. I started listening to audiobooks too - this is a tricky one I tried a couple fiction books and couldn't get into them while working but non-fiction or memoirs are great Amy Poehler's Yes Please , and also really liked Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. Need to get a list going of some new gems for 2015…


ADDED:  LOVE startup and reply all podcasts too! both on gimlet media

Pretty cocktail/beer photos at Food 52. Photography by Mark Weinberg.

Really liked partnering with Provisions - made an extra recipe sheet for them too that has all the drinks recipes included with the calendar.

renegade chicago

renegade chicago! loved it - such a great show. It was my first renegade - they really put together a great market! Currated so well and in such a perfect space - this year it was at the Bridgeport Art Center on the fifth floor so everyone who came to the show took freight elevators complete with chandeliers to get to the market. There was a fantastic dj playing music the whole time and it was packed with people the whole weekend! We had a close call with a deer on the drive there and a terrifying encounter with wintery mix on the way home but it was so nice to be able to drive - definitely want to check out more of these! chicago this summer? san fransisco too?

Craftza was one of my most favorite shows ever - Andy and Jenna do a great job putting together this event - great location - the old grain belt bottling house and I loved the time of the event not too long not too short - just right.

Last nice day of fall perfect for a six year old elsa and anna party. Made some felt hair clips that really needed to be hot glue gunned but was too scared to pull that out with 14 little girls around so instead we used lots of craft glue - Im sure they all fell apart at home… but they had fun making them, pin the nose on olaf, a scavenger hunt, red light green light witched to elsa (freeze) and anna (go) and cake and ice-cream - a sweet little home party!

for my birthday...

I would like to more than anything go to Lotta Jansdotter's workshop and creative retreat at her home island in Scandinavia. Aland Workshop Retreat. So who wants to give me the best birthday present ever?  Seriously I can not think of a better workshop/retreat…"You will have time to draw, explore, swim in the brackish ocean, take saunas under the midnight sun, hike, kayak, make lovely things with your hands, make new friends and simply ‘be’ in this rather special and gorgeous part of the world." Lotta Jansdotter
