It's Really Monday

After a longer amount of time than I'm going to admit to, it's a real Monday here at Pixel Scrapper. We are back to work in our proper office, trying to figure out what to do now. The answer: lots of fun things!

Who's working at their very own desk? #backtowork #reallife

Even though I haven't had my actual desk, I've been working on a few exciting things. First of all, last week we announced a call for Creative Team members. If you love making layouts, this is a great opportunity for you. Also, we're starting a new position of Cheer Team/Designer Assistant. I'm not entirely sure what this position will include, but if you're looking for a way to help out at Pixel Scrapper, this is another great opportunity. See lots more details here.

Apply to the Pixel Scrapper Team!

Also, I just posted the poll for the August blog train. We have some particularly good choices this month I think, so we'll be winners either way, but it's fun to cast a vote!

Also, since it's Monday that means I have some fun, new goodies for you:

Summer 2014 Road Trip: Newport, RI

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 06/19/2014 - 11:29

Once we managed to drive all the way to the East Coast, it was time to do some sightseeing! Luckily, we were staying in the town of Newport, RI which is famous for its wealthy summer residents and the mansions they left behind. I toured several of the mansions, and experienced all the different ways excessive wealth can manifest into a house. Each mansion was different and they were all fun to see.

▲ Perhaps the best thing about this trip was how we got to experience two springs. We had spring in Oregon before we left, but when we got to Rhode Island their spring was just starting.
