This was fun to watch, seeing how far one the greatest (next to Disney of course) animation studio ever, Pixar, has come over the decades. Found via Brand New.

4. Biz Ladies Profile: Dana Tanamachi

Yet another week where I have to mention Dana Tanamachi, but this girl is just all over the place. And she is such an inspiration. In response to a question regarding starting your own business, she said:

Know your strengths. If you’re good at something, you’ll usually be passionate about it. Typically, we look at it from the other way around, but sometimes (and if we’re honest) we’re not that great at everything we’re passionate about. And in starting a business, we’ve got to be realistic. Both passion and skill have got to be there!

5. Art Display Frame

I love this concept for a frame! Such a cool and easy way to display art, and it would be easy to switch out different pieces. Found via Brave the Woods.
