Oh, the January Bulletin Board. I love fresh + new + inspired. Twenty-five days into 2010 and I am feeling a lot of love. The temperatures have been mild + awesome. The girls have been fun + moderately happy. The dogs have been good. Dan has been humouring my gluten-free cooking and life is good. The days have flying by. Slow down 2010.
At the moment I really, really love:
MY NEW iPHONE CASE. Alright. I was a little thrown by the UPS customs fees and I didn't get a chance to appreciate just how awesome the case itself is. THANK YOU UNCOMMON. It's great! I am officially in love with it. I will have an update on that tomorrow.
The HIM+HER and YOU+ME prints. Oh, these prints are so sweet. I have been really enjoying putting the orders together and hearing your stories of love. I have a giveaway this week.
SPREAD LOVE SIGG WATER BOTTLES. Too cool. I am donating all of my proceeds from the bottles ($2 each) to the Red Cross for Haiti. Total money raised right now is just over $150. I THOUGHT WE COULD RAISE MORE. You can order your bottles here. Go on - spread love.
RETRO BATHING SUITS. So here's a funny story. I decided that the only clothing I would allow myself to spend money on in 2010 is a new bathing suit. I went to the big stores and tried on all of the suits with ruching + ruffles + squishing + concealing and resigned to the fact that to get a good bathing suit that would hide my lumps, bumps and extra skin I would need to spend $150. Which was okay with me because REALLY WHAT IS THE COST TO FEEL GOOD PRANCING AROUND NEARLY NAKED? Before committing to a bathing suit - I decided to take a peek on good old Ebay. Knowing I NEVER win Ebay auctions I bid on every great, brand name suit I could find. Well - WHOOPS. I WON THEM ALL. I won 7 suits. Total cost to me: $158 including shipping. One bathing suit for everyday that we will be in Kauai next month. That's hardcore.
Today: I am packing up the first round of ADD-LOVE prints. I am going to head out on an excursion to round up more of my favourite paints. I have a cup of coffee with my name on it and hopefully I can make a little magic happen so I can post more good stuff right here tomorrow. AWESOME.
