Two For Tuesday: Cre...

Two of the BEST creative websites… I have said it before – sometimes you just need a little boost.   Just love this that I found on my feed on FB today from MyModernMet.com…  This site never ceases to find things that truly inspire me to create, smile or at least make it...

Two For Tuesday

Every Tuesday at Our Space you can expect to find two of something —  movies, restaurants, ads, books, gif’s, animal names, pick up lines, cocktail recipes —  you just never know; we’re leaving it wide open. The purpose is twofold (ha) — first, it’s catchy and mildly...

Athletes, Art and Mu...

Of course I am not insinuating that ANY athlete from ANYWHERE was or is on steroids. My title is altruistic, not accusatorial. My point is that I can’t think of a greater culmination of our world’s collection of cultures than the Olympics. Every four years, the best athletes from around the...

Creative Inspiration

So true—I always say—if it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.  Creativity cannot be forced, but you can prime the pump. One of my favorite ways to do that is to peruse the Internet and all its offerings. I have literally Googled, “Beautiful Pictures” before, wherein a flood...

Chicago’s Braz...

Should it really ever be done? Should an artist attempt to “do” the Beatles? Some contend to not mess with the masterpieces, and, for the most part, I agree. It’s just never as good and, well, it makes you feel a little sad for the poor chaps who made the attempt. But what if they take the...

Monday Music Muse Jul14

Monday Music Muse

The constant onslaught of new tunes – and the ability to access music whenever and wherever – can make it hard to keep up. Here at Our Space, we celebrate our diverse taste in tunes and welcome one another’s contribution to the playlist of our lives. Here are three of my favorites so far this...

Not So Mad Men

The SJG creative team spoofs a scene from Mad Men…     Cover Photo Source: Bernard Goldbach via Flickr  Jennifer is Director of Content & Ideation at SJG.  I am convinced that every human being is innately creative – Picasso said the key is to remain childlike within the...
