Fa-La-La-La Merry Moxie Food Drive

Posted on December 18, 2012

Tis the season of caring, sharing and Fa-La-La-ing!!!

During this holiday season, Moxie wanted a way to share the joy of the Christmas with those who needed it most. Moxie coordinated the first annual Fa-La-La-La Merry Moxie Food Drive and asked local businesses in the Wausau area to collect food from within their company during the week of December 10th through December 14th.

During the week of December  17th through December 19th, Moxie will be collecting all donations and delivering them to the Salvation Army and Neighbor’s Place in Wausau. We will also be holding an OPEN HOUSE at MOXIE on December 20th from 9am – 3pm for anyone who would still like to drop off donations.

We are thankful for all of this year’s participants and look forward to adding even more participants next year!

It’s such a joyful time of year and a time to be thankful for all of our blessings. Moxie wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Bored? Nope, not me.

Posted on September 8, 2009

When I was a kid oh so many years ago, I would sometimes complain to my parents that I was bored. This would usually be followed by my mom giving me something to do, usually a chore like vacuuming or cleaning toilets ? EWWW! Needless to say, I didn?t say this very often.

As I got older, I learned how to fill unscheduled time. I realized that boredom is in the eyes of the beholder. Is it that I actually have NOTHING to do? (Ok, we all know that?s not possible when you own a home.) Or is it that I have a list of things to do, but none of them are APPEALING? (This is more likely the case.) So I?ve learned to have a secondary list, things-to-do-when-I-don?t-want-to-do-any-of-the-things-I-should-be-doing list.

Things on this list are usually things that don?t have to take a lot of time and can be squeezed in when I need a break. Reading is always a good filler, so I always have a good book I?m reading (often 2-3 books, I?m a person who likes options). And taking my dog for an extra walk is a good head-clearer for both of us. My latest uber-interest is cooking and finding new vegan recipes to try. This weekend I made tofu scramble (delicious!), peanut butter pancakes (turned out perfect and yummy!) and vegan ice cream ? all successes! (this, however, is not always the case with my cooking?)

These same principles apply for my work day. Most days I have enough work to keep me more than busy, but sometimes I just need a short mental break. Writing these blog entries has been a great one to fill a little time. I also like to look up new programming techniques that can be used in the future. And it never hurts to back up emails and organize projects to keep my computer in a reasonably understandable system.

So no, I almost never say I?m bored anymore. Most days, I wish there were more hours in the day to fill with all the things I want to try. If you are saying you?re bored, ask yourself this: Is it really that you NOTHING to do or more likely is it that you have nothing that you are INTERESTED in doing? If so? find something interesting! Now, if you don?t mind, I?d like to get back to my Garbanzo Tacos (yes, another NEW things I tried).

Welcome to the Moxie Mash!

Posted on June 25, 2009

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening! It?s a new day and a new beginning for the Moxie blog – The Moxie Mash! We?ve been dabbling in blogging for a few months now and have finally decided to dig our feet in and make this thing a success. Won?t you join us?

So what changed since the initial launch of the Moxie blog? Well, to begin with we have a new domain, our very own blog address. We?ve stepped it up from Blogspot, which was a great starting point when we just wanted to get our feet wet and see what this blogging thing is all about. But we quickly realized that we like, no NEED, options. Options for how our blog looks, for how the content is organized and what features are included. Add-ons, plug-ins and widgets, OH MY! Where do you go when you crave so many options? WordPress of course! It?s super easy, there are a million options, and you can completely customize everything about your blog. Just like a knight in shining armor, it was our dream come true! With our new found options, we did a complete overhaul of our blog. New design, new content (check out the photos!) and who knows what we will add in the future? Audio? Video? Events? Who knows where this will take us.

You?re probably asking yourself, ?Self, what can I expect to see on the new Moxie blog?? I’m glad you asked! We?re going to give you a little bit of everything. From Moxie updates (she did what?) to industry news, case studies to tips on working with graphic designers, our blog will be an ever evolving source for some wacky stuff! We?re going to be posting more often (our goal is 4 times a week), with more bloggers and more topics. And we?d love to hear from anyone and everyone! We?ll respond to comments, questions or suggestions. After all, this is a group effort, and we want to make sure that everyone is involved and interested in what we have to say.

Check back soon and check back often. Or even better, subscribe to our blog (click on the cute red RSS icon in the top left corner of the page) so you don?t miss any of the creative thoughts, ideas or musings of the Moxie Creative Studio staff.
