goooood stuff.

Last Friday I was featured as the guest blogger on the Fiskateers blog. I won't go into great detail here, since I wrote a LOT on that post, but it was really REALLY a neat experience because it got me back to thinking about the key stuff I'm thinking about and doing lately. Today I stopped by there to read peoples' comments and they were really nice to read.

The book is just over a month away from release! I have butterflies in my tummy to see it in person. We were so pushy with our wonderful editor and the folks @ Memory Makers books to get it "just right". We wanted a certain look and feel...we really wanted the book to reflect US. From what I've seen, I really think it does....I cannot wait!

People have asked and emailed about where to get the papers I designed. I know I mention Lazar all the time, but just in case you wanted a direct link, here you go: buy cellular, or buy organic.

Also, in an effort to get my ass to the post office, I'm giving away each paper line to one random winner. AND the same person will also win one each of my new stamps!
Painty Splats
Painted Spots and Squares
Creative Wordage

Leave a comment to be included in the drawing! (or just because you want me to feel the love)

Now that we've taken care of business...

Gratitude:
For routine. I do love the more spontaneous random side of myself I have discovered since being with Dren (he's a tad more casual than I...yeah just a tad) but I'm just that type. I think it's referred to as "A". While the weather is amazing like this, I'm really going to try to get up earlier and go for a boot around the lake. Key word: try. It's all I can do....
