Happy Birthday, Jane!!

Today is my good friend's birthday. Jane is quite possibly the most loving, unique, creative, and imaginative person I've ever met in my life. I met her in high school, but we didn't really become close until just about a year ago. She has sat with me while I've cried, she has made me laugh more than I thought possible, and she's one of those people that you can call at any time and say "Dude. Blanket fort. Now." and she'd respond in one of two ways:

  2. "GAH! I so wish I could but I'm taking my students hiking to look for imaginary creatures. Any chance you'd want to dress up as one?" (the answer was "yes.")

If you don't believe me, I can at least prove most of those things with these photos of her things, which I think you should buy from her etsy shop, because her stuff is awesome and it's her birthday.

So yeah, please go check out her stuff - and maybe buy some of it, too! There's way more than what's on here and it's all super amazing!

Happy birthday, Jane!!





It's Time for a Giveaway!! Yay!

Happy Thursday, Readers! I've decided that I don't like calling you guys "Readers" anymore. It's so plain, and let's face it: I am nowhere near plain, and by association and the fact that you willingly read my blog every day, neither are you. In fact, even if you don't willingly read my blog every day, you're not plain, because if someone is forcing you to read my blog, you're life is definitely interesting and I need to know more about it.

Anyway, I've decided to hold a contest. It's a giveaway, too, so let your inner selfish kid out to play and get creative!

Here are the rules:

  • Post your collective nickname suggestions in the comments.
  • I'll go through those and then post my favorites tomorrow for all of you to vote on.
  • On Saturday, the winner will be announced!
  • The winner gets this:



It's a mini-notebook with blank pages. He's about 7"x5" and my friend Jane makes these for part of her crafty living. If you want more details about the product, go check out Jane's Etsy Shop.

Alright, "Readers" - let the competition begin!!
