CREATIVE WOMEN

2021-03-01T09:22:25-05:00

Photo on Unsplash by Jamie Coupaud By Marilyn Pellini My friend Bev has a true creative streak. Over the years she has dabbled in painting and all kinds of crafts, knits artfully, and is a fan of any kind of music. She loves attending theater productions where others show off their talents for acting and performance. Her true gift lies, however, with dressing herself and her home.  Bev is always so well put-together whenever she ventures out. She’s tall and slim, so the clothes she selects complement her very well. The way she composes her outfits is what makes her stand [...]

REVIVING THE LOST ART OF HOSPITALITY: CREATIVE WAYS TO CONNECT WITH OTHERS

2021-03-01T09:22:31-05:00

Photo on Unsplash by Christopher Paul High By Courtney Opalko My family has a specific room in our house which has, on occasion, been referred to as the “Isolation Chamber.” Maybe you’re picturing a sterilized room of white walls, cold hard floors, and nary a house plant in sight. I’m glad to tell you it’s not quite like that. It’s a beautiful room, painted in the most calming shade of blue. It holds two sofas facing each other, delightful antique chairs, collections of books, and family scrapbooks. It’s designed specifically to foster deep conversations, long games of Scrabble, and lifelong friendships. [...]

Photo by Ryan Doyle By Mikki Moscara Have you ever experienced kismet? Sometimes the details of our circumstances align so perfectly that they stretch beyond the idea of coincidence, and seem to be part of the precisely unique masterpiece of life. That’s what I was thinking about as I stepped away from the computer after an hour-long interview with world-renowned street artist David Zinn. Street art in general is intriguing to me, but the way David Zinn bridges the gap between reality and fantasy is very distinctive and ingenious. By using chalk, knowing that the elements will wash his work away [...]

ON CALCULATING RISK AND SPARKING CHANGE WITH MOLLY MCFARLAND

2021-03-01T10:23:26-05:00

By Marji Wisniewski In preparation for my interview with Molly McFarland, co-founder and chief revenue officer at AdAdapted, I googled the phrase “entrepreneurial spirit.” The top Google result was an article from Forbes magazine, which defined it like this:  “Entrepreneurial spirit is a mindset, an attitude, and an approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change. It’s a mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service, and continuous improvement. It’s being agile, never resting on your laurels, shaking off the cloak of complacency, and seeking out new opportunities. It’s about taking ownership and pride in [...]

CURATING LIFE AS ART

Richards I have long thought of myself, and my life, as a royal work-in-progress. Though it may seem like a stretch, I’ve been intent on creating a masterpiece. It’s messy and magnificent all at once. Sometimes I draw inside the lines, other times outside of them. It’s much more fun that way!  Striving to curate my life artfully has demanded, in a wonderful way, that I adopt a super creative, open mindset — a way of [...]

THE MADNESS THAT IS MARCH

2021-03-01T09:22:55-05:00

Photo on Unsplash by Timothy Dykes By Liz Crowe Ah, here it is. The month that started it all: March. As I write this, I’m having flashbacks of my carefree self from this time last year. I was facing down one huge life change (a move), but as with every winter, one of the main things I was looking forward to was basketball. I grew up in Kentucky, ergo I know when a basketball player walks and what a pick-and-roll looks like, as well as the difference between a box out and an actual foul (although I’ve been known to engage [...]
