Smash Journal

I’ve been drooling over the SMASH Journal.

I am a scrapbooker and love collecting ideas, inspiration, photos, and random bits and pieces from my life. While I love my small Moleskine journals and carry them most places with me, the glue/pen combo that slides right into a loop on the journal is so smart.

Come April, maybe I’ll be carrying one of these around. (Or maybe two if I can’t decide between the Mod and Doodle styles.)

Linkabout: February 19 Edition

Links to five things that have been inspiring me this week.

In no particular order:

  1. Innovation/LeadershipFast Company Design lifts up Apple and IKEA and offers an argument for why designers–not users–should drive innovation.
  2. WellnessGood.is reports that youth in a Naperville, Illinois, high school who participated in physical activity just before classes improved reading and math scores. What if we had fitness classes before
  3. EducationRSA Animate offers a video illustration of one of Sir Ken Robinson’s talks on how our education systems are killing creativity.
  4. Technology/Youth Ministry: danah boyd writes about teens, Twitter, and managing privacy in public. A favorite line from the article: “Access to content is not the same as access to interpretation.”
  5. Ministry: Rachel Held Evans reflects on the Epic Fail Pastors’ Conference and encourages pastors to tell the truth and be more transparent with their own struggles.
