Our newly beautified powder room

Nothing a little 'Wild Blue Yonder' and laminate floor tile couldn't fix! Now we are no longer embarrassed by our yucky bathroom! Everybody say 'Yay!'

{ Lucky You }

Lucky you!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog (if you have one) and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

I love Surprises!

P.S. As of 2/20/09 I still need one more person!!!!

What could you say with 6 words?

"Extremely responsible, secretly longed for spontaneity."

Yesterday on NPR they had a program on Talk of the Nation about memoirs in 6 words. Smith magazine in The spirit of Hemingway asked readers to submit a memoir of 6 words on their life, or to tell a story. I loved listening to these and Jim and I had fun writing a few of our own. Smith Mag has compiled these memoirs in a book entitled "Not Quite What I Was Planning, Memoirs by Famous and Obscure Writers" I think there is real power and rhythm in 6 words. They are so telling yet open ended and mysterious, allowing the reader to fill in the blanks while still painting a picture. So I was thinking, in honor of Valentines day and the fact that Jimmy and I got engaged 4 years ago today I would like to hear your 6 worded memoirs on Love and heartache in your lives. I'll go ahead and start with mine and the one Jimmy wrote tonight in my comments below. So in honor of love and as an anniversary gift submit yours in my comments as well! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!! Happy writing!
