:: too cool ::

Well it always works out like this. I finally got everything worked out on my BlackBerry and as a X-Mas gift/bonus my Boss give us all an 8gig iphone!

BlackBerry for sale!, BlackBerry for sale!

I have had it for a couple days now and i LOVE it. Now that I have a case and screen protection I am not on pins and needles with it.

If you are an at&t customer I highly recommend you pick one up!

Really though I was very happy with the BlackBerry, but this thing is just ultra cool. can't say enough about it.

Hope everyone has a safe and filling thansgiving. Here in Colorado we will be having some guests, Sam and Max from Traverse City will be joining Erin and I. have some good eats planned along with some fun activities. The major issue here in Vail is the lack of snow! It is November 20th and we have NONE! So do some praying and hoping cause we need it.

Again hope everyone is well and good in the hood

:: let'er rip ::

Erin did it again, The Trifty Store Hero, She found this XL somewhat vintage FUJI "Gran Tourer SE" road bike. With all original parts! I tinkered with it last night and it works great, just some rear shifting issues, but I am contemplating making it a single speed anyway. Should be a fun project, i might learn something about bikes even? I will post updates as the work continues.

:: happy friday, drink up! ::

:: get your shred on ::

Exciting times here in the high country of Colorado! Two Resorts are open for business, Arapahoe Basin (A-Basin) opened two weeks ago, and Loveland Ski area opened just this week 10.15.07. With the snow falling at a pretty good rate it looks like Erin and I will be making our first turns this weekend at Loveland. Pretty excited!

It also seems like we will be having a good number of visitors this season, the family has been booking flights and we are stoked. It is always fun to see family and friends, so come on over.

:: the draft ::

Had a great weekend, Erin and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We headed to Denver to celebrate a bit. Saturday night was pretty great with a show at The Marquis Theater. This was a rare occurace, every band that played was actually good. First off was a band from denver who I can't remember, but not bad, second was SleeperHorse, these guys were really good, I thought kind of Small Brown Bike-ish. Next up was a band called Dead to Me (love the name, it's a phrase I use quite often) they were rather entertaining as well.

To cap the evening off was The Draft, this band was formed after Hot Water Music front man Chuck Ragan called it quites... Don't get me wrong The Draft is a Great, Solid Band, but listening and seeing them live you just know if they had Chuck up there with them they would just be that much better and MORE Amazing. Great Show to say the least.

So as we were enjoying an intermission cocktail I noticed a guy who looked like Jason Black of The Draft, wasn't 100% sure, so Erin took the initiative and went down and asked, sure enough it was and we both got a shot with him... Thanks Erin.

So it was a great weekend and a great top off of my first year of married life, once again... THANKS Erin for being you.

:: be creative ::

Got these a couple weeks ago, sent a package to Blokt as well to help him put down the ideas and sketches.

If you are a creative person or not you always have stuff you need to remember, and I don't care what kind of phone or PDA you have nothing is faster than just writing it down. You can always transfer your notes at the end of the day.

:: I am out ::

:: so close ::

Really though, this time I am speaking the truth. I have to put the finshing touches on the portfolio section, but this should be done in the next couple of days, like always work permitting.

please check back soon, and if I don't have a link to nycodesign up and running...please comment and tell me to get off my ass!

:: take care all ::

hello all, it's been awhile. Since July forth i've been pretty busy at SPARK Creative (my 8-6). I'll apologize for the site now, we have been in development for some time now... sorry again.

Summer seems to be winding down here in the Colorado Mountains. After Camp Michigania my Folks finally made the trip up to the "High Country". It's been about 6 and a half years since I moved here... better late than never. I have to download some picts from the visit and camp. Check back soon.

We are always looking to improve YOUR business, web or print, we aren't picky. So don't hesitate to call Mark 970.376.3882, or Paul 585.729.6710.

:: spark web projects ::

been pretty busy at spark creative. The above is a re-working of the Led Gardner web site home page (click the image to see full size). i think it is an improvement from the old.

we also just finished and launched Lakota at Winter Park. If you have an extra $750,000 to 8 million sitting around i think it would be a great place to invest. located in the beautiful Fraser Valley.

well as you can see we have been busy, but we always have time for your design needs.

give us a call!

:: bye ::
