Fundraising Advisor quiz from Abila

True confession: I’m one of those people who secretly take online quizzes.  Like what’s your hippie name?  Or which Mary Poppins character are you? OK, I totally made that last one up, but sometimes quizzes can be ridiculous.

 

Unless of course they’re about increasing your fundraising IQ.  I couldn’t resist this quiz from Abila!

The best part is the great information they deliver right after you complete the survey.  Maybe some information you already knew, but reinforcement is a good thing.  Here’s a sample:

Ouch!  The learning moment is for us to leverage all the data at our disposal for communications segmentation, personalized outbound touches and channel specific content (being mindful of constituent channel preferences).

Blooming Tuesday

The days are getting longer and our gardens are exploding with color.  I mostly favor perennials myself, but my niece gave me a pretty succulent for my birthday.  And it’s blooming!  What a treat.  Tiny little coral-pink flowers with bright yellow middles.

Ornamental trees, shrubbery and flowering plants all support native wildlife.  Let me know if you have any photos from your garden to share on a future edition of Blooming Tuesday 🙂

Walk on the crafty side

There’s an employee art show here at work this week.  A supportive coworker encouraged me to enter.  She knows how much I love making something crafty.

 

So just for today, how about we take a break from the work blog and think about artistic expression?  For me, if I can incorporate natural elements from my backyard, all the better.  This super clever idea for hanging photos from Photojojo is totally something I would make.  And probably will, so don’t be surprised if you come to my house and see my humble reproduction.

 

 

There’s another version too – for folks who love anything miniature.

 

 

 

I’m thinking vintage postage stamps combined with buttons and dried flowers.  Cute?!

Let me know if you make one – even better, send me a photo!
