Carrots Abound!by Michelle Plucinsky
While reflecting on our donation part of the spring show, the carrot came to mind. We did a few prototypes and liked the results. Customers started commenting, and staff all started picking out their favorites. We made big ones and little ones, orange and red carrots, tall and thin, short and fat. And suddenly, we all found a carrot we could relate to and we knew we had to make more to share!

Do you have the Shiny Object syndrome?by Michelle Plucinsky
Try as I might, I can’t stop. I’m continually thinking of ways to improve, advance, explore, and try new ideas. It’s just exciting!! The shiny object floats past my vision, enters my mind, and I can’t stop until we’ve tried the idea, product, etc.

Organic farm inspires Detroit Artist to new levels!by Michelle Plucinsky
Green Things Farm. An organic farm in Ann Arbor. 5.5 miles from my home, so close that I could ride my bike~ and I often did. (Until the summer heat reminded me to lighten up a bit!) I work 2 days a week, 4 hours each day and I’ve learned a TON. Most of which is the importance of buying food from your local farmer.
