Today we have some more great additions! Everybody welcome Jacqui and Scott of Slide Sideways, and some guy named Patrick (my husband, and technical resource.)
Scott and Jacqui Scoggin
Scott and Jacqui like to think of themselves as all around makers of cool stuff. They started Slide Sideways, a handmade and graphic design business, in 2008, mostly as an outlet for complete creative freedom. Typically they spend their days at the screen printing press and sewing machine busying themselves by making tea towels, posters, sketchbooks, zip pouches, and more for their shop.
They currently reside in Tacoma, WA, living a simple life and staying happy by drawing, picture taking, food making, bike riding, thrifting/estate saling, playing, watching movies, day dreaming and just all around creating and making stuff.
Patrick learned how to destroy and build things with electronics and other crafts at an early age by taking everything apart and putting it back together. Growing up, he also spent years in Boy Scouts learning the art of the kludge, how to survive outdoors, and plenty of other skills.
Today he lives near Seattle with his lovely wife, Alison, and work as a software developer. At night, he obsesses over coffee, computers, music, building, and fixing things around the house.
I know that Patrick has a tip article in the making about file types (jpg vs. gif vs. png), and I can only guess at what great things Jacqui and Scott are working on.
This is getting good.
(PS- Like I always say, if you have a question, problem, great resource, or project you'd like to share, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to become a regular contributor, let me know, and I will send you a questionnaire right away!)
