How to Eliminate the ‘Uncategorized’ category

I’ve just written a new post on INDIECreatives about the that pesky Uncategorized category I see on fellow WordPress Web sites.

If you use WordPress as your Web site base (and congratulations, by the way), take another look at your line up to see if you spy ‘Uncategorized’ lurking about. WordPress creates this as a sample category for new users and from what I observe, many folks are using this as a crutch rather than renaming or eliminating it altogether.

It’s a great tool, so don’t be a tool by dumping your articles there if you can’t think of anything better. Find another category to use as your crutch because it’s SEO friendly. 😉

Thanks so much for reading.

Field Trip: Shopping for Leather

Who likes to go shopping? Better question, who doesn’t like to go shopping?

andrew+holding Our leather totes have hit a popularity stage that keeps us in the workshop. Yay! So, Andrew suggested on a Friday night that we get our carcasses out of bed to take an hour drive to Ramseur to go shopping for new leather and suede.

This is a video of where we shop and our process for selecting leather and suede for our products.

Now that you’ve seen the myriad of colors available, let us know your preference. While we can’t get the specific blue that you adore, we can come close. As tastemasters, allow us to create the products highlighting your personal taste.

Creative Outlet: Ceramic Class – Vases!


ClayPlay: Crafting Elements for the Female Vessel

In this class, we had fun building vases tonight. Using a drop-technique, we first layed out elements on newspaper, topped them with a slab, then dropped the combination on the floor. Yes, you read correctly: We dropped our masterpieces on the floor! It was such an exhilarating exercise. Much like watercolor, one cannot determine where the pieces will embed, you just have to trust the muse to place it effectively.
