    Prior to this past weekend, we didn't really know how a jacquard loom worked (or even what it looked like), how leather gets thin enough to make a wallet, or that a 3-D mold printer could be used to make sterling-silver jewelry. But, thanks to a lovely weekend down south at the Savannah College of Art and Design, not only have we gotten schooled (literally), but we also got to see the next crop of on-the-rise designers that make up this year's graduating class.

Over Carrying 2 Bags To Work? So Are We...

Leaving work at work is easier said than done. Often, we find ourselves lugging our laptops to and from the office — not wanting to part from important files or programs we may need offsite. (Sad times, we know.) That, in turn, can lead to toting around two bags instead of one. Here's the dilemma: Our regular satchel read
