This is beautiful, Fatemeh. I'm so glad you were able to find that resolution. Thank you for sharing...

Tiffany - You're the best! Thank you. Jennifer - Hello to you too! Yes, I would recommend Crowdspring - it's worth it if you have the time to really engage with the process and give feedback throughout. Mark - That means a lot, coming from you! Many thanks.

Wow. What a great shot. I'm envious of your time with Marcus... what wonderful things you've learned. Wish I could share tea with you and hear some of your stories. xox

It was well worth the wait, wasn't it? So extraordinary in every way...

This issue has flummoxed me for a while. GREAT tip - thanks, Andy!

Jen - yes, it's quite an interesting experiment. Not entirely sure how I feel about it yet, but it's been a good learning experience. Genie - cool! It seems like smaller projects are ideal for something like this. Courtney - thanks for weighing in with your thoughts! I'm preparing more focused feedback for the designers that seem to be "getting it" - so this really helps. Merci!

Aw, Sean - you're the best! Thanks! Tea - that's about as glamorous as my office being in the same room with a broken washing machine; I step over stray wires to get to my desk. Just call me Fancy. Lydia - yay! So glad. Courtney - you're in, baby.

Ah, the moodiness of the Sonoma Coast... you're right, it's simply magical. Thanks for the reminder, Sean. I have a hankering for oysters right about now...

Tea - you're so right - bits and pieces of the fantasy do pop up from time to time. And so we keep writing. I would LOVE IT if you wrote a record of your day. Maybe we could create a meme (PURELY opt-in, of course) for any writers who might want to participate...? Keep up the word-wrestling - you're so good at it, you simply must. xox

I like that this packaging not only tells a story, but that it tells a somewhat dark story. It's brave, I think, for a wine brand to go beyond the standard "dreamy wine lifestyle" message to convey a far more compelling tale... What a fabulous conversation starter at a dinner party!

Tea: well, I'm glad at least that we have ice cream forays. That's pretty cool... Genie: yeah, I'd like this life too. Sigh. Sam: well - have a parachute handy when you read the real deal; it's quite a fall - ;-)

Hey - AWESOME theme! This might be my favorite TypePad theme EVER. Seriously. Great job, Jim.

I ADORE Stumptown. It is entirely worth a trip to Portland just for its own sake. I have to say that this design doesn't "wow" me - the "plain brown paper" package has been done many times, but the pocket concept is very cool. And in any case, I'd buy their coffee even if it came in a Ziploc. ;-)

Tiffany - "different, not dead" - I like it! Courtney - a writing exercise! Yay! Nicole - I know, it's so fun to see what other writers are doing. Elizabeth - thank you so much, and thanks for reading!

I absolutely adore this. (Use of the screw-caps as pupils: fabulous) Quite possibly my favorite carton design EVER.

Tea - oh, but you make a marvelous YOU, and I think most of us would trade our scrappy-ness for your published-author-ness. ;-) Tiffany - you are such a great example of kick-butt freelancer! And it's good to be back. Kevin - you're right on all counts - paying for health insurance IS a drag. And I totally understand your loathing of the endless effort to sell - it's no fun. But I much prefer the sense of control over my own destiny, and not having to ask Cindy in HR for permission to take Friday off...
