Welcome to my new weekly newsletter.
I hope you are having an amazing creative week!
My goal with this newsletter is to share some highlights of my week, any finds I’ve discovered, and random thoughts about business and life.
1. Just in case you missed it, here was our blog post on Wednesday. I focused on 3 things you can do to make this last quarter great.
2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September 18. It’s hard to think of someone who championed women’s equality more.
As a textile fan, I loved how she made a fashion statement in her judicial robe. RBG and Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female justice, wanted to include something feminine with their attire. The jabot was the answer. Here’s a fun article in the New York Times about the different collars that Justice Ginsburg wore.
3. Speaking of RBG, I couldn’t resist buying this Notorious RBG T-shirt for myself. I also bought one for each of my sisters.
4. Did you know there was a Fat Bear Week? And, it happens every year!
Fat Bear Week runs from Sept. 20-Oct. 6 this year. In this single elimination tournament, one bear is voted off each day. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to vote for the fat bear or the cute bear.
All in fun, vote for your favorite fat bear here!
5. What’s on my nightstand?
I’ve usually got both fiction and non-fiction going at the same time. This week is no exception.
I’m just finishing Indistractible: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life by Nir Eyal. Each action you take either provides traction or distraction towards your goals. The book is filled with great tips to keep you focused. Take the ones that work for you and leave the rest.
On the fiction side, I recently finished The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See.This was a fascinating look at the women centric culture of the Haenyeos, women divers, on the island of Jeju Island in SouthKorea. The book’s themes were of friendship, family secrets, and loss. It was an emotional read (or rather, listen) for me. I loved this book. I cried the whole last chapter.
