Halloween and a poll for the sweet tooths

October 30th, 2009

(Or is it sweet teeth?) Tomorrow is Halloween, and to celebrate, here are a few spooky items made by some über-talented folks; these should get you in the spirit…

  1. It’s the Great Pumpkin Hat, Charlie Brown by Yokoo
  2. Zombies vs. Townspeople Checker Set by PsAndQs
  3. Tiny Ghost and Goblin Necklace by AnoriginalJewelry
  4. Bunny Rabbit Feltidermy Headpiece by girlsavage
  5. PeeWee Pumpkin Soaps by bovinebubbles
  6. Black Cat Tee — Women or Men styles by SickOnSin
  7. Bats Tattoo Tights by post


And now, a favour to ask of you… it’s somewhat related to Halloween because it has to do with candy. We’re going to have a candy buffet at our wedding (in less than a month, yipes)… and I would love to know: What sweets should we include in the candy buffet?

Please leave a comment and let me know your favourite sweets. I’ll draw a name on November 12 (two weeks from now) at 9 a.m. EST from those who are kind enough to weigh in, and send the winner a whack of greeting cards or holiday gift tags, whichever they choose. THANKS!


Happy haunting :)

It’s… a blog!

December 10th, 2008

[From December 3rd, 2008]

So as much as it feels like I’m speaking to an empty room right now, I’ll post something anyway. I have all sorts of reasons for starting a blog, and all sorts of reasons why I shouldn’t (not the least of which is that I already spend way too much time in front of my computer)… but alas, I’ve decided to give it a spin.
As this is my first ever blog entry, it made me think of a bunch of other things that I experienced for the first time this year. So far, 2008 has been a year of new experiences for me, it would seem. This year, for the very first time in my life, I…

- ate an olive with pimento

- jumped off a rock into a lake

- participated as a vendor in a craft show (and then got addicted and did more)

- grew my own veggies

- started up an online store

- got winter tires (ok, John gets all the credit for doing that for me)

- canned veggies and salsa

- dressed up as a cowgirl

- was in a documentary about the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir — my favourite band in the 90’s (and which aired on the Independent Film Channel on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd…! I made it onto the screen for a whole 0.27 seconds

- went to Newfoundland

- gave one of my tees to Bryan Adams

- made coleslaw from scratch

A kinda packed last few months so far.

So… why am I here? Well, it’s definitely a self-indulgent thing to have one of these blog things, isn’t it?… but I figure, (1) it’ll be a really fun way to share goings-on and pics with friends and fam — namely those who are anti-facebook; (2) maybe it’ll be a bit of an outlet for me… as someone who works at home all day, I do have a tendency to talk to myself a lot!; (3) hopefully this’ll be a way for me to help get traffic to my sites, which are being revamped as I type; and (4) I do find that time flies like a mofo these days, and this will help me record all the stuff I’ve been getting into — I look forward to looking back at this record and reminding myself of all the stuff I did.
