a little more frank

I promise I am not obsessed with Frank Chimero. He is just so talented. And funny. It is a good thing to have a sense of humor ...

Frank and Ben Barry have set up a website called Questionable Characters where people can ask them questions. A large majority of the questions are about graphic design, but there are also some random ones thrown in there. It feels like an entertaining conversation.

more beautiful science

These slides are just gorgeous. I hope we look back at the digital age and find as much beauty in it as I see in this stuff.

I had to actually look up the word advent. We know this to be the Advent Season, but what exactly does that mean? The first definition is: a coming into place, view, or being; arrival. This year we are truly celebrating a new arrival of our baby girl. And my Dad's brain, making it's way back into place. And of course the advent of the holiday season and a new birth, giving us a clean slate for the coming year (no matter what your beliefs are!).

D is just now understanding Christmas. I created an Advent Calender out of gift bags from Target. He is loving it! And when you ask him who gave him the presents he'll answer "Christmas gave them to me".
