Pretty quiet for me on the internet this week, but I do want to tell you about this fundraiser my friend Jen Myers is running to buy Chromebooks for her Code & Cupcakes workshop. This is a mother-daughter website code basics class and right now attendees are required to bring their own laptops which not everyone has. Providing computers means anyone can participate!

Also if you’re seeing old friends during this holiday season, maybe this hilarious post on the types of friendships really gets it.

As for recapping the year here’s some facts:

Travel was big for me in 2014. I went to LA, where I got my first tattoo, and spent a weekend in the desert with some incredible feminist women. I went to the White House to help fight sexual assault. In August I traveled to Cleveland for Weapons of Mass Creation which was a grand time as well. In September I was in NYC to film my newest Skillshare class and more recently was the trip to Guatemala which I’ve written about as well.

Other stats:

Designed and/or built 10 websites. 

Designed 11 logos

Designed one book and had work work in two gallery shows

Here’s the books I read this year:

The Money Book for Freelancers, Part-Timers and the Self-Employed by Joseph D’Agnese  and Denise Kiernan
