It's All Yellow

It's feeling very spring like out there, the suns out, sky's blue, birds are singing...  I love this time of year, there's a freshness and clarity that goes hand in hand with renewal, new adventures, new plans, longer days and rejuvenation. 
Daffodils, tulips and Easter's just round the corner...  Spring is definitely in the air, so here's some inspirational spring time brights...

A Continuos Lean
'A Continuous Lean serves as a discovery agent for those with an appreciation of quality, style and provenance'.

American Craft Project

THE AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN refuses to become extinct. While computer-controlled robots and Chinese factories are churning out most of the products that feed the great machine of consumption, along the less traveled backroads and in the dustier corners of our economy, the craftsman keeps an older, slower, more picturesque kind of work alive. The American craftsman still thrives, because when it comes to getting certain things done well and with beauty, a human hand guided by a human eye, ear, and imagination can still be the highest technology of all.~David Culp, writer (excerpt from the original ACP booklet released in 2009)

"My success with brooms has come because I was not afraid to experiment, take risks, and let no one outwork me."

"Every time you fail to make a broom perfect... it will only make you better."

"The handworking of the material has a value that comes through in the finished goods... and it has a soul"
"I continue to be energized by the process of bringing an idea from a line drawing on paper, to a tangible object that brings daily joy to someone. What could be better than that?"
