Wouldn’t you love to be able to purchase all your Christmas gifts this year directly from the people who have made them by hand? And know that your money is going to hard-working and creative individuals rather than huge corporations? With that in mind I’m planning on posting once a week (maybe more often if I get a huge response) featuring someone who makes and sells wonderful things you may want to buy as Christmas gifts. If you’re interested in being featured just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The earlier I hear from you the more likely I am to be able to feature you, because if possible I don’t want to duplicate products. All I’ll need from you is a couple of pictures of your products, a bio, and a link to where your customers can reach you to buy your merchandise. I’m calling it “Share the Love” and as I add featured products and the people who make them I’ll also post them to a page where readers can access them all at once. I’m also planning on promoting this heavily on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. No, I’m not looking for a percentage of your sales or free merchandise – I really just want to “Share the Love”!
My Halloween decoration are sitting in a Rubbermaid tote in the middle of my living room. They’ve been there a week. I just can’t seem to get my thoughts together at an appropriate time to put them up. I tend to remember them when I wake up at 3am, and decorating in the dark just doesn’t sound like a good idea, even if it is Halloween.
My mom and step-dad are in Vegas for the Bull-Riding Championship, so I have a three-dog house for a little while. This makes it very difficult to get out of bed when they are all feeling snuggly. When they’re not feeling snuggly my neighbors probably think I’m hosting dog fights in my living room. I’m surprised the police haven’t been called.
For those of you with tweens or teens into Steampunk, here’s a new series for you. I read the first book, and am anxiously waiting for my son to finish the second one so I can read it! It’s set in an amazing post-Apocalyptic world that is so perfectly created it pulled me right in.
I’m still waiting to get an appointment with a pain management doc, and of course my disability insurance company is already insisting on having signed documents from them by November first. I wasn’t even able to find out the doc’s name until yesterday, so what do you think the odds are I’ll have an appointment, have forms filled out, and have them turned in by then? Yeah, this is going to go well.
Thank goodness Dairy Queen only makes Pumpkin Pie Blizzards two months a year, otherwise my butt would be a mile wide.
I don’t normally discuss politics on my blog, but I thought this was too funny not to share:
God help us all if those people are actually registered voters.
