Go Follow My Sister (Makeup Giveaway on Her Blog!)

Go look here. All you have to do to enter is follow her on that blog, or her other blog, or add her as a favorite seller on ebay. You can do all three for three entries. The instructions are up on her blogs in more detail.

She is doing this giveaway weekly until Christmas. And besides, you should be following her anyway! She's smart and funny. So go do it. Some of the things she blogs about are autism, her twin daughters (my awesome nieces), current events, music, games and whatever else she feels worthy of writing about.

Show some love, Bloggers!

Dear Bloggers:

Does anyone know where the fabled sketchbook is? Can anyone vouch for having it? At all? Ever? I really hope it is still out there in circulation somewhere, and not holding up a wobbly table. Let me know if you have had it please. I may have to get another one sent out if it's lost.

(And I will has a sad about lost art.)

Hello everyone. Long time no blog. Hope you are all doing well.

I have found lots of amazing people through the Internet over the years, from the Livejournal blogs I read back in 2000 to all of the blogs I read and love today. [That means YOU!] I recently discovered and after viewing a few live video feeds I was unimpressed. I viewed one more Blogtv channel before writing it off as a total waste of time, and I am glad I did.

That is how I met Morgan McNally. (Well, Inter-met, anyway.)

by Morgan McNally

Morgan is a talented artist. More than that she really is a sweetheart and I know that you will think so, too. I wanted to share some projects that she is working on.

The first is called thousandforathousand. She is creating a thousand paintings, and you can "buy" one simply by doing a good deed of your choice. It can be a big or small thing, and you don't have to "prove" you did it. (But why not blog about it if you do?) She is doing this "to say thank you for being a good person." I have already signed up to be part of this and will update with a post when I choose what good deed I am doing. (Art for doing something good for my fellow man? Win-win!)

If you want to be part of this project simply email her at saynomorgan[at]gmail[dot]com with thousandforathousand as the subject.

The other project is called Take a Fear, Leave a Fear. If you sign up for this Morgan will send you a package in the mail containing the materials you'll need to set up a Take a Fear, Leave a Fear post somewhere in your town. From her blog (which you should all go follow!):

The Goal
The audience (i.e. strangers and passers-by) can write a fear, a worry, a regret, fold it up and put it in the bowl. Once you put your worry in the bowl, it's not yours anymore. You're giving it up and letting it go. You're acknowledging it and accepting that it's not yours to fret anymore. If you choose to take a fear/worry/regret OUT of the bowl, you get a valuable opportunity to learn about a complete stranger and what makes them tick/keeps them from ticking. It's a chance to gain a little empathy for your fellow human.
I really like this idea. Also, Morgan is attempting all these projects out of her own pocket. They mean a lot to her and I am sure she will see them through. If you can help by spreading the word through your blog or Twitter she would appreciate it. I hope some of you will go look at her blog and be part of these projects, or at least pass on the info!

(And if anyone knows how to make blog buttons for these projects and would want to do so, please do. I am no good at them. At all.)

In Case You Haven't Noticed...

I am taking a little hiatus from writing this ol' web log. I chose to take a summer class that seriously drained my time and energy. I wish I hadn't taken it. I got an A, barely, but it really made me feel unprepared for fall classes, which started yesterday. I'm not sure what is going on with me but I have been feeling anxious, depressed and overwhelmed. My insomnia has become sort of ridiculous. I am going to focus on doing well in school and spending time with Violet. I really don''t want her to pick up on my anxiety but that has been a struggle. I really can't pinpoint what is causing all these feelings so I am considering a doctor visit to get a medical opinion. I really do not like feeling this way.

So, until I can get some blogging mojo back into my life I will be around, lurking your blogs when I have the time to do so.

Love you Bloggers,

PS- I hope the sketchbook is still in circulation. Look forward to seeing it. Anyone have it recently?

I Can Has Capshun Plz

This is a picture of the brother and sister kitties from several years ago. Click this link to go caption them on Icanhascheezburger. OR, if you are too lazy just caption in the comments section. ;)

Coming soon: I am going to post pics of my fantasy knuckle tattoos.

Also, if you have had the sketchbook recently (or at all) leave a comment letting me know. I just want an idea of where it is and how many people have had it. Thanks!
