Make your own luck

You know my favorite feeling in the world? That overwhelming, uplifting rush of: "... I need to make this right now." I had that feeling in a Pei Wei one Sunday after church with the family. I glanced up at their lucky cat on a shelf and just ... wanted to paint it on a huge canvas. So I took the truck, went to Michael's, got the biggest canvas they have and spent my Sunday afternoon painting a cat on a big piece of cloth.

Then after a few more weeks off and on, I had this:

I think it fits quite well in my dining room. Although, I do feel like it is destined to hang above the bar at a modern sushi restaurant or tea room. For now, it makes me smile in the morning and hopefully will bring us some luck in 2018.

2017 = the year of the GIF.

I love GIFs. Our videographer/storyteller and I recently agreed that 2017 will be the year of the GIF. I think it only makes sense to use the rest of the year to hone your GIF-making skills.

Multiple Projects = 1 Space.

Our team provides a lot of value but sometimes we can forget how much we're contributing to the organization SO we thought it'd be a great idea to make a giant metal board to capture our current projects and put it right in your face! Behold our Project Board! Now by posting mini-project briefs and related visuals, we have more visibility within the organization and onlookers can see exactly what we're contributing: a lot!

Our next phase is adding customized magnets for each member of our team. Now you can let everyone know that you're a part of a project by literally slapping your face on it!

Starting with the girls- boys are hard to draw!

This board is not a method of project management however: simply a tool to give us a view of the bigger picture and provide more visibility for our team to our leadership. I'll update you when we receive our magnets. I can't wait to have 10 magnets of my face to stick everywhere. Sorry in advance, every fridge I see.
