DIY - envelopes made from magazine pages DIY - magnets made from foreign currency

Two DIY projects you’re going to be into.  
[Creativity / Inspiration / Life Hacks / DIY]

This is a family-filled issue, folks. This week, my step-mom, Teresa, sent me two DIY craft type projects that I’m super excited about. First up, make your own envelopes using magazine pages. I never have envelopes, but I always have magazines lying around, so I’m particularly jazzed about this one.  Secondly, magnets made out of coins from your travels. I tend to save foreign currency thinking I’ll take it with me on my next trip, but typically forget. This is a great way to keep/create a useful momento from a trip.

At the Northside Festival this year, Dennis Crowley admitted in his session with Jerry Colonna that one of the toughest challenges that he has faced as an entrepreneur was having everyone looking to you, counting on you, investors betting on you—and feeling like you’re supposed to know everything. Sometimes—a lot of times—he said, you have to admit that you don’t know what to do, but that you’re going to find someone smart who knows the answer.

It’s ok to admit you have no idea what you’re doing. In fact, it’s probably a good thing.  

I remember when I first started in advertising. For the first few weeks, I was waiting for the handbook which told me how to do my job. And then I realized it didn’t exist. It definitely didn’t exist. Charlie O’Donnell, a partner at Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, writes about how admitting you have no idea is actually OK - and what to do about it

LastBash: Plan and organize awesome group trips without hassle. 
I’m not the biggest fan of event planning in the PR/marketing world. I tend to feel a bit overwhelmed and can’t seem to focus on all the details that need sorting. But when it comes to vacation or parties in my personal life, I usually nail it. Still, a gal could use some help - and GoogleDocs just aren’t cutting it. LastBash.com lets an organizer set the stage but gives you a platform to let others weigh in. It’s not the prettiest thing, but I’m excited to try it out. High-res

Food.ee: A new way to order office lunches.   
While Food.ee is only available in Vancouver at the moment, it’s billing itself as “the fastest and easiest way to order meais for your team.” Whether you know what you want or are looking for inspiration, you can plug in the number of people and the maximum per person cost and Food.ee will get back to you with a recommendation. I’m hoping this comes to NYC soon. High-res

This desk will be disappointed if you don’t draw all over it. 
Whether you’re a meticulous note-taker or a seemingly random doodler, the "Post-Itable" desk is for you. Only problem? It was created a few years ago as part of a competition.
