New Signature Cocktail: Subdued Excitement

by Lindy

I’ve invented a new signature cocktail inspired by Bellingham, Washington’s (my hometown) unofficial nickname, “The City of Subdued Excitement”. I’m almost, nearly, completely excited by my new concoction!

The Subdued Excitement cocktail is comprised of:

  • Kirkland Signature vodka from Costco (Seattle company)
  • Organic grapefruit juice
  • Frozen rainwater (preferably from the Great Northwest) in the form of ice cubes

The Subdued Excitement cocktail is simple, natural, outdoorsy and a little tart – just like Bellingham-sters like me!

Feel free to substitute organic apple juice for the grapefruit juice if it’s too exciting for you.

It’s perfect served in these 2 oz. red party cups because it wouldn’t be prudent to over-indulge. (Unless of course you’re not driving and you don’t have work in the morning.)

Kreative FM Podcast: Episode 1

by Lindy

Kreative FM Show Notes | Episode 1 | 8/28/13

In this podcast episode of Kreative FM I talk about my procrastination (it’s been four months since I published my intro episode) – thoughts, ideas and inspiration that battle doubt, fear and the busyness of life.

I also introduce my new co-host and husband, Jonathan, who will help keep me accountable to publishing new episodes and add more entertainment and engagement to the podcast. We’re celebrating our ten year anniversary this week, so we’ve decided that after a decade of working independently on our careers and projects, that we’re going to start working more collaboratively and combining our skillsets. How romantic is that?!

We’d like to take a moment to remind anyone listening that we’re not professional radio hosts, voice over talents or broadcasters. Please bear with us as we develop our voices in this new realm.

Our main focus of this first episode is to discuss creativity and the types of media we consume regularly for inspiration. Jonathan: Pandora, Spotify, You Tube, Flipboard, Stitcher, The Onion, Netflix, Vimeo. Lindy: blogs, Twitter, SoundCloud, YouTube, Stitcher, Ted Talks, Tumblr, Instagram, iTunes U.

We play some soundbites from various media with limited success due to our wonky internet speed. The only thing that successfully played without a hitch was a vinyl record on the record player.

My favorite part of the show was when Jonathan says, “I’ll show you my spreadsheets.”

Email us with any questions and/or feedback at KreativeFM@kreativehaus.com. Also, interact with us on Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. with the usernames @KreativeHaus and @NBHaus.

Thanks for listening to Kreative FM!

Seattle’s 42nd Annual Bumbershoot

by Lindy

In it’s 42nd year, it’s hard to believe I’ve never been to ONE Bumbershoot! It’s only the biggest entertainment shindigs in Seattle. This year it takes place September 1st through 3rd and instead of attending, we’ll be camping and boating at Big Bear Lake. But I still daydream about someday partaking of the adventure of Bumbershoot; hopefully before I’m wheelchair-bound invalid. We literally just returned from our big Washington trip a week ago for my 20 YR HS Reunion, mass quantities of quality family time and a jaunt to San Juan Island, so we’re still recovering from the jam-packed family adventure.

“Since 1971, Bumbershoot has drawn artists representing the best in music, film, comedy, spoken word, dance, theatre, performance, and visual arts to the Seattle Center over Labor Day weekend. North America’s largest urban arts festival, Bumbershoot takes place in the heart of the city at the 74-acre Seattle Center. Over 100,000 visitors from near and far spend the weekend reveling in the world of Bumbershoot, experiencing everything from regional favorites to international superstars across all arts disciplines.” – Bumbershoot.org

In addition to all the great musical acts, comedy, art and film elements, the new Words and Ideas program featuring literary arts and lectures sounds especially intriguing. Words and Ideas features:

“Conversations, performances, panel discussions, and readings exploring the points where pop culture, new media, literature, theories, and trends intersect and explode into new cultural phenomena.”

Check out the entire lineup. It appears Goyte will be performing and that would be a show for me to see!  Janeane Garofalo in the comedy series would be incredibly awesome too! Youngershoot for families and kids also sounds appealing. There are so many things to see and do at Bumbershoot, it would be hard to choose how to divide your time. I will definitely put this on my calendar for Labor Day 2013, but in the mean time, I will be stalking from the sidelines at our camp site via Bumbershoot’s Twitter, Facebook and Tumblershoot Blog.
