Hand-Carved Signs: A Lost Art Re-Discovered

Hand-carved signs, plaques and crests as an art form began to disappear around the turn of the 20th century, particularly after WWII. In North America and the rest of the modern world, by the late 1940’s and 1950’s, people became obsessed and more fascinated with technology and speed, then ever before: Speed of (mass)production, speed of delivery and speed of consumption.

Will You Be Left Behind If You’re Not on Pinterest?

Yikes! So much Social Media out there. So many new sites popping up to attract readers to your site. When I first went on Pinterest I was “over the moon” in love with all of the pretty pictures. After pinning a bunch of beautiful photos, re-pinning other’s photos the infatuation wore out very quickly. That’s because I just don’t get it. Most of the photos are pinned by many but the original photographer or artist gets no credit. However, I do understand the attraction. We all are attracted to new, shiny objects. Pinterest is like flipping through a fashion magazine. All of the decorating, clothes, photography can be wonderful for a few minutes of distraction, but like all social media, I find it to be a big waste of time. Yet, why I’m on all of the social medias? I do see a usefulness in them when done really well. I also like to learn and try new things. Sad point, most of us do a lousy job at social media. So, why all the buzz about Pinterest?
