Father’s Day Commission Project

I’m excited to announce another Commission Project just in time for Father’s Day. The Commission Project works like this: purchase a painting here and choose your frame color, send in a photo by Wednesday May 15th, then wait by your mailbox. A finished painting by Paul Ferney, framed and ready to hang will be shipped by June 10th. These make really great gifts! Here are some of my favorite pictures below. There are a very limited number of spots this time (half sold out in the first hour.) Updated: This round is sold out but if you want to be the first to hear about this in the future sign up for the email list right here.


Alt for Everyone

I’m going to be teaching a class at Alt for Everyone about growing your blog traffic. It will be similar to the talk I gave at ALT SLC in 2012. Alt for Everyone is an online blogging conference so you can go to it in your pajamas! At the end of my talk I’m going to smash a cake in my face so if nothing I say is very interesting that might be worth watching. There are lots of great speakers! Sign up here.

Oh Happy Day Craft Nights

We are starting up Oh Happy Day Craft Nights again at our studio in San Francisco and the first one is going to take place Friday, December 28, 2012. We are changing up the format a little bit. Instead of having everyone bring a craft to work on we are going to have someone come and teach a class and all the the materials will be provided. It will still be free, but like last time, attendees will still need to pay $20 and register to hold their spot. The $20 will be completely refunded when you sign in the night of the event.

Registration will go up tomorrow at 9 am PST. Check tomorrow to find out all the details!
