Sunday summary

Something new: every Sunday I'll post a recap of the previous week's postings. You can see if you missed anything interesting during the week, or you can just visit on Sunday to see what's been happening. Let me know what you think of this idea.

Dec. 14: Not your typical cup of tea

Detail of teacup
Possibly the world's cleverest tea cup/tea bag combo. You put the pyramid-shaped tea bag—oops, I mean infuser—in the cup, add boiling water, and top it off with the cup's special lid. You end up with this whimsical sprout. If you need a special gift for that special tea (or design) fanatic, this is it. More...

Dec. 15: Take me, I'm yours

Detail of note

I'm sure the little cooler (or warmer?) that plugs into a car cigarette lighter seemed like a good idea to someone, sometime. Ditto the tabletop fountain. Now they're just lonely reminders of the end of Fall semester, no doubt victims of an office clean-up. More...

Dec. 18: Finished

Detail of website

Finally done with grading for the semester. Today I want to share a few projects from the Monday/Wednesday Web Publishing I class. Each includes elements that make them "webby"—in other words, they do things that can't be done in print. As is true for most of our students, this was their first shot at web design. More...

Dec. 19: Ducks & teapots

colorful duck

I like buying gifts but I hate Christmas shopping. If I were a better person I'd make thoughtful hand-crafted items filled with love and creativity for everyone on my list. I think about that a lot, but after the Chex mix debacle I'm not as motivated. More...
