I missed a week of Friday Props - it's almost becoming the norm. And today as I sat at lunch and suddenly remembered it's Friday and I had to bang out the weekly, I knew that if I had to Face It then so, too, would our readers. So it's the Face It edition of Friday Props. Up first for some Props-worthy photo and video work is some doggedly good stuff from Carli Davison as featured in her book Shake. The moments captured and slowed down can be both disturbing and delightful and certainly not what I typically imagine when thinking of Read More >>
Now that the Edgeworks Crew is all back together in adorable Waterbury, Vermont again. I would like to point out an awful truth: winter is coming, people. Yesterday and today are not good indications of this, but on Tuesday morning I had to SCRAPE THE WINDOWS OF MY CAR, which made me late to work, which then threw off my mojo for the whole day. There's this new trend of "Life Hacks" abound on the internet, so I was thinking maybe I could compile a winter specific list to make all of our friends/family/frenemies who live in colder climates have an easier Read More >>
This week we bring you Friday Props quite a bit later than normal - it's Friday Props Late Edition! I'm okay with that because our little Friday Props has grown up a bit and can stay out later. As the team found itself in Bolton today to start another season of Michelin Tire Schools my thoughts were turned to the change of seasons and to the rites of passage this year brings us including all those graduating classes. So for this weeks' Props I'm handing out recognition to great commencement speeches and advice. The first Props goes out to Steve Jobs for Read More >>
For our one year anniversary of bringing little bits of awesome to you each and every Friday we've created a special retrospective highlighting our favorite Props from the year.
She wore an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka Prop Buh-lini. Tiny. Small. Miniature. One catch phrase I used to hear frequently from a former boss of mine was "detail-oriented." Given the context of those conversations, I'll stick with the first three and avoid making you suffer through the oft-used cliches to introduce our Prop-holders today. Read More >>

It’s beginning to look a lot like Friday Props / Everywhere I goooooo….. The first significant snow covers the ground here in Vermont after a beautiful evening of flakes last night. The church down the street is selling cut balsam trees as a fundraiser and I avoided the bombardment of cheesy, overblown, mall-style Christmas consumerism thus far. This doesn’t mean I’m not thinking about gifts for folks, but I’ve very picky about my gift-giving. Two factors dominate my selection process: functionality and sustained fun. If a potential gift doesn’t meet either of these two criteria, I’m not buyin’ it! This Friday Read More >>
