THE BORDEN SCRAPBOOK

Our scrapbook isn’t just a place to showcase our rants, raves, healthy highlights and special projects, it’s actually our method of presenting, arranging and preserving what we do. For our small but mighty team, we do a lot. It might seem disjointed and unfocused, but trust us, everything we take on makes sense to us, and when it doesn’t we pull it out of our scrapbook. We love pasting in new finds and resources, inspiring people who are true forces for good (we call them “mosquitos” for a reason), things that outrage us, interesting perspective and lots of food for thought. We hope you will flip and click and scroll and make good use of what we share – that is why we spend the time to share. It’s organized chaos, and we hope it will propel you to be curious, explore and find solutions for you to make your everyday a little better, no matter what you are after or just happen upon.

If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.


OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Time for Some Healing

Remember when we asked about how you were feeling a few months ago? Many of you took the time to respond … the only thing that was similar between your replies was that you were feeling a lot of things … hard things, beautiful things … all valid things. Emotions are part of our human experience. It’s important to be patient and give ourselves permission to feel .. to heal. Whether we are talking about you or your business (everything is connected), the world is ready for better … for good … with more connection … the…

It centered around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on April 24, 2013.

How Are You?

Do you notice how many times a day you ask or are asked, “how are you?” How do you answer? What answers do you hear most?Good. Fine. Tired. Excited. Why is asking such an important question “Phatic”? In linguistics, a phatic expression is communication which serves a social function, such as social pleasantries that don’t seek or offer information of intrinsic value but can signal willingness to observe conventional local expectations for politeness. How many times do you hear answers or share answers…
