take a moment

in memoriam

I hope everyone can take a moment today to remember that today is not just a day off work, but to honor those who have fought for our country. Traditionally, people take a moment of silence at 3:00pm local time to remember those who have fallen in service.


everything is going to be okay

Sometimes you just have to tell yourself that everything is going to be okay. Head on over to the Pugly Pixel for a fun tutorial on creating a letterpressed look like this in Photoshop!

dear diary

behind the scenes coveteur

I think even more than I love The Coveteur is the Diary of the Coveteur. Everything is a little more human and they even show the pets from time to time.

stand out

stand out from the crowd with a custom favicon

I have so many blog-world friends using Blogger that when I open all of their blogs in tabs (guilty, I usually have no less than 50 tabs open) they all start to look the same. I would love to see more people taking advantage of custom favicons in Blogger.

As a favor to other chronic tabbers, I am offering a new favicon update service.
