Friday Distractions: Discovery

For this week's Friday Distractions we are inspired by the discovery of the Bob Dylan's lyrics from over 40 years ago.  "Following a motorcycle accident in 1967, Bob Dylan retreated to upstate New York where he would go on to record the original Basement Tapes.  Forty-seven years later a selection of handwritten lyrics from the period surfaced that were never made into songs.  In early 2014 world renowned producer T Bone Burnett recruited five of todays finest musicians to write and create music for the long-lost lyrics, this is THE NEW BASEMENT TAPES."

Friday Distractions: Tropical Sounds and Sips

Happy Friday! Here we are chugging along through June and nearing the summer solstice.  Up here in Northern California we normally experience some June gloom, but this week we were hit with a rain storm, which is totally unseasonal, and actually awesome.  Summer rains are pretty common on the east coast and almost daily in Hawaii so it was the perfect way to spend Worlds Ocean Day with a nice dousing on the Pacific.  What the rain stirred up in us, however, is the need for a warming drink and some tunes to ease us into the weekend.  Our song pick this...

Friday Distractions: Jammin' into Summer....

Happy Memorial Day weekend.  This long weekend is given to us, as yet, another gift from those who have died for us in combat.  It is with the utmost respect and gratitude that we give a moment of silence to pay our respects to the many Americans who have given their lives to grant us this biggest gift we have, Freedom.   This weekend marks the first unofficial weekend of summer for most.  The Carve Designs office is buzzing with excitement as we swap long weekend plans, some are heading to the beach, some are competing in running races and...

Friday Distractions: Don't Worry Bout It

HAPPY FRIDAY! Here to give you a couple distractions to help you get to the end of the day and ready for the weekend with our weekly song pick, drink recipe and Carve Designs product. As I write this post I am listening to Kings - Don't Worry Bout it.  The Kings are not an incredibly well known band (read only one song on Spotify), so we are pretty excited about sharing this hot single from this hot band (see YouTube vid for hot lead singer). The best part of this video is it was an impromptu shot on Mana Island in Fiji for the...
