Plus 1 Minus 2 and The Week That Was–March 2, 2012

by Alicia on March 4, 2012

Despite getting an extra day last month I’m still two days late with these links! Did you do anything fun for Leap Day?

- Of course there is no way those shorts will ever work on a mortal, but still… love the look. (Sidenote: Isn’t it still cold in Paris right now?)
- So many triangles, so little time!
- This is such a good idea that I expect many more people trying it in the future- The Design Files hosted a pop up shop in a house.

- Love the colors in the DIY seed bead necklace.
- Great tips from my friend Bri about how to take better pictures from the Organic Photography workshop she hosted last weekend.
- These wire vases are a perfect fit with this week’s mesh inspiration.

- Snow circles!
- Focusing photos after they’ve been taken- what?!?
- Love this piece on rejection. I totally agree that it’s like a muscle that gets stronger the more you use it. In high school I worked as a teleprospecter (that is, supposedly, a telemarketer that just makes appointments and doesn’t actually sell anything?) and it wasn’t a bad job. It came down to a numbers game where if I made 90 phone calls I could count on getting 10-15 people to tell me when their auto insurance expired. But now it’s much harder to to deal with the no’s… I guess it’s just different when it’s my own business! (Btw, sorry for interrupting your dinners in the late 90’s… Smile)

I barely recognized that it was leap day with the amount of stuff I’m always doing. hahaha
