#WomenInIT: What do you do when you're celebrating a 50th birthday? Well, if you're our geeky friend and toy collector +Louis Trahan, you trade-in your cake and make a difference instead!
Louis and his team at +Last Minute Training are organizing a #WomenInIT fundraiser on January 28 in Toronto that we're happily supporting: http://www.bigfifty.ca/.

As a crew of tech/gaming/toy nerds we know how badly we need more women in IT and gaming. In GDC's 'state of the game industry 2017' just 20% of #gamedev are female.

Fun aside... Louis owns one of the largest collections of our toys outside of our own showroom - see some of his collection below or on our Facebook page :).

2016 hasn't been the 'easiest' year for many of us, our joyful toymaking team included. Thank you everyone for being there, for sharing cheerful inspiration and hugs - we're a very lucky bunch!

This holiday we were inspired by decades of delight and deliciousness...

Heidi’s mom Rose started making fruitcakes over 30 years ago - she makes ~100 fruitcakes each December for gifts (yum!). While it's true that fruitcake doesn't have the best reputation, everyone at Happy Worker will attest that this cake is truly tasty!

Over the years Rose has baked almost 3,000 truly beautiful bricks o’ cake, sharing and spreading happiness with every bite. Thanks Rose and happy hugs!!

A few days ago Heidi and Shirley test baked Rose's recipe... and the results were mmmmmmMmMmmM! Here's 2 recipes guaranteed* to create joy.

Wishing you terrific toys + much happiness over the holidays and throughout 2017,

- Happy Worker

From game history talk by @romero- now we know why character sprites in Doom were so amazing: they were designed from hand sculpts that were photographed in turnarounds, then designed overtop of photos #GameONVentures
