So you know the drill, we've all been there. You've set aside some time to devote to a project on your list, but end up never completing it.
As a creative person I find myself, more often than not, wrestling with this. Not because I don't have the best of intentions, simply because I am so energized and inspired by everything and have a million things on my list to accomplish. Sometimes I wish I could put my super woman cape on and do it all.
So after 4+ hours of not getting my original goal accomplished, instead of wallowing in my misspent time, I decided to make 'lemonade out of lemons' and create a quick little fun infographic around tonight's events.
I know it's definitely not what I originally planned, and trust me, when events of this nature occur, instead of salvaging, I usually call it a night, make nachos and watch some mindless cable tv show, but instead I decided to capitalize. That's the funny thing about creativity, you never know how or when you are going to get inspired.
I am not a person that usually blogs about every little step of my time, but it was for a good cause tonight.
The result is a complete idea and a sense of fulfillment, (and hopefully it makes a few people chuckle as well).

On press, the 2012 Trexler Trust Annual Report....below, some spreads from this year's report. I have had the honor of designing the report the last several years, and each year we highlight the initiatives of some of the grantees. This year's theme focused on change, featuring historic photos of some of the prominent grantees and the results of the money distributed to their organizations.
The Trexler Trust or is a philanthropic effort of General Trexler, "who died in 1933 leaving a residuary estate of approximately ten million dollars. His will directed that the residue should be help upon a perpetual trust, the income from which would benefit his wife during her lifetime and the citizens of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania after her death. At present, the value of the Trust's assets is approximately $100 million dollars. During the 75+ years of its operation, the Trust has aided the work of Lehigh County charities by providing them with over $100 million in funding including nearly $35 million to the City of Allentown for the 'improvement, extension and maintenance of all its parks.' General Trexler's generosity toward the citizens of Allentown and Lehigh County continues through his Trust."
