Will this be just another blog?

The answer to that question is "No way, Jose!" My goal is to make you laugh and hopefully you will accidently click on one of my cards and buy it (Right now, I'm holding up a pocket watch and swaying it back & forth as I'm trying to hypnotize you, "You're getting sleepy"). This is where I will chat about just anything I feel like, while promoting my goods! Hey Guys, not those goods!! Keep your pants on!

Just a few of my Goods! I think I heard one of my cards say, "Take me home!"

Merci Beaucoup rhymes with Thank You!!!

How exciting! I just won this photograph as part of a contest on Dongedy's blog!! She is an amazing French photographer who uses mini people with everyday items. I feel like I'm a part of the moment when I see a little plastic-made person chiseling away at a sugar cube or swimming in a martini glass (First of all, I'm not made of plastic, but maybe one day I may need to go that route and secondly, I do love sweets and drinks so her photographs definitely resonate with me)! I would love to shrink myself and drink my way out of a cosmopolitan any day! Actually, I wouldn't have to shrink myself by much. I'm quite petite, so I'm sure I could find my way into a martini glass without a problem! I sound like I need to go to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings!

I love the photo of the two people climbing their way up a jar of Nutella! That would be so dreamy, of course if you're allergic to hazelnuts, this would not be good! Please take some time to check out her shop! I guarantee you'll find some favorite photos that will put a big smile on your face and hopefully end up on the walls of your home!

Ole Ole Ole Ole...Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

For the first time, I took hot yoga or as others would call Bikram. I was pretty excited about trying something new since I'm a very active individual. When my co-worker invited me to try hot yoga I was a little hesitant, but I figured what the heck! She told me exactly what I needed to bring for this new exercise activity (what a great excuse to buy an aquamarine mat and a matching headband at Lululemon).

I knew it was going to be a very warm room, but I was not mentally prepared for 1 & 1/2 hours of poses in 105 F degrees. I have to admit at the 45 minute mark I was exhausted and wet from swimming in my own perspiration! Thank goodness I was told not to wear shorts since some of the poses require holding yourself by your knees or calves. Talk about slippery skin (I felt like a salamander which are scaleless and aquatic. The word is also defined as a "mythical being, esp. a lizard or other reptile, thought to be able to live in fire").

At the office, before my co-worker and I headed to yoga, I kept telling her "I'm going to try to make you laugh while we're in there!" I'm quite the personality so I wasn't sure I could handle the quietness of such a disciplined practice. My devious "laughter" plan was foiled when I realized I needed to focus under the extreme heat!

During one of the poses where I laid face down on the mat, I was visited by a lovely dark eight legged creature making his or her way towards me! HOLY CRAP!!! I seriously had to take all the energy inside of me not to scream (in actuality, I needed to channel that energy to give my co-worker the evil eye)! I quickly calmed myself down, took in some air and used the power of my breath to blow that spider off my mat! By the sound of my breathing technique, I'm sure the others around me thought I was very deep into my stance or I was going into labor! When my "I'll-huff-and-I'll-puff-and-I'll-blow-your-house-in" method did not work, I had to figure out what else to do! It was in that moment where I would have preferred to switch out my "third eye" for a "third hand" because I had to quicly flick the spider instead (don't worry creature lovers, he lived). Later in the session, I noticed the guy in front of me flicking something of his towel (creature lovers, I have no idea if the spider lived, sorry)! When class was over I thought to myself, "I would rather have a yummy hoagie than be a yogi!"

"I tried yoga once but took off for the 
mall halfway through class, 
as I had a sudden craving for 
a soft pretzel and world peace."

Stay In Touch Thursdays!!

It’s quite embarrassing that I haven’t updated this blog in several months considering my love for the art of writing. I was inspired again to make more cards after spending some time in the sale section of Michaels craft store and JoAnn Fabrics (I went there on a mission for one thing and you know what happens when you see items with red sale price stickers? Hello Empty Wallet). I decided recently I’m going to start using one of my lovely handmade cards and personally write someone every week this year (Gee, I wonder if I actually know that many people?). It will be great way to reconnect with others than sending emails or constantly updating my status on Facebook. I will post my beautifully crafted card here only after I’ve sent it. I don’t want any of my recipients to get a sneak peek! Who knows maybe I’ll surprise one of my customers with a free handmade card along with a personal note from “Yours Truly!”
