Howdy friend,

Last week I mentioned that I wanted to add a search feature to the Friday Finds archives page. Well — I went ahead and launched it yesterday!

Now you can search and quickly get to the content you're looking for. Can't remember which newsletter had that article looking back on 70 years of IKEA interiors? No problem.

I might add more functionality, so any feedback is welcome. Shoot me an email and let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend — see you next week.

High fives,

Matt Downey
