It has been a long summer of proposals, project plans, resourcing and deliverables.
As August comes to a close, and it seems like everyone but you is going on vacation, we thought that you really need a drink about now.

We hope to see you there!

Pollyanna. White Elephant. Kamikaze Gift Exchange. You get the idea.
Bring a holiday-wrapped six-pack of your favorite brew (this is part of the admission). We’ll have brown paper bags and markers if you’d like to wrap at the event.
At 7:15pm sharp, we’ll start the inaugural PhilaMade Holiday Craft Beer Pollyanna. We’ll provide some good company and snacks too.
The rules are simple: Each participant supplies one wrapped six-pack. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. The second person gets the choice of stealing any unwrapped item or choosing a wrapped one from the gift pile.
If the second person steals the gift from the first person, then the first person chooses a replacement gift from the pile of wrapped gifts.
If an item is stolen from you, you can steal a gift from someone else, or open an unwrapped one. We’ll do this until everyone has a pack in hand and then we’ll get some real holiday cheer going.

2012 has been the year of meeting and building our own Project Management community (with the help of dear old PhilMade). We held a couple of successful events and got to see who’s out there working in project management on the web over the past year. 2013 should be the year where we connect more often and share brilliant ideas. In the spirit of being all PM-like, let’s get ahead of schedule for 2013 and meet up in October!

It’s back. PhilaMade Karaoke.
It took us a full year to recover, but now we’re back. Truly, if ever there was an opportunity to flex your karaoke muscles and demonstrate your prowess, this is it.
Screw misery. Greatness loves company too.

From our friends at the AIGA: “Please join us as Mig shares stories of making things, and doing great work that makes everyone happy. Yourself included. This is a talk about doing over dreaming. You know, stories of sweat and tears, xacto cuts, and hard drive crashes. The stuff designer legends are made out of. But it’s also a talk about being happy doing some of the best work of your life.”
