Slacktastic Weekend

I meant to accomplish stuff. Seriously, I did. But the bed was so soft and warm. All I wanted to do was lie around in it and read magazines. I guess I need that occasionally, but I had planned to write and take down my holiday decorations, which will probably stay up until March now.

I did, however, venture out to the new Shop Rite and I think I'm in love with a grocery store. It's so new and fancy! There's a doughnut machine in the middle of the bakery department! And free samples of gooey cinnamon rolls! They sell aloe leaves and big sticks of sugar cane and coconuts! I will never buy any of those things, but I like looking at them! And it's super cheap. Screw Acme! You are second fiddle now, my friend.

Thanks to a Starbucks Doubleshot Energy + Coffee at 7pm on Saturday, I had a weird burst of energy from 8pm - 1am. I started thinking about prints that I could make for Operation NICE. Mainly because I had the slogan "Niceness is Priceless" stuck in my head. So I played around a bit and made this up.

Playing around


And then, thanks to Mary over at suffix.abuse, I started working on creating a Big Cartel shop. It's easy. I don't know if I'll move forward with it. We'll see. But I already decided on a second slogan. "Put the 'kind' in mankind." Snazzy, right?

In other news, I'm "famous" again! MavenMag Philadelphia did their cover story on me for their brand new website launch this month, and it came out this morning. YAY! I feel like I look a little weird, but I guess everyone feels that way about themselves. I love the article! Alexis is awesome! Take a look at the site, it's a pretty neat place!

The cards are awesome! Great job! Congrats on the article as well! I might have to check out that BigCartel.com site...I like etsy, but this seems so easy!

I have yet to check out the Shop Rite but have heard great things about it. Apparently Thursday night was only open to town residents and you got free food. I missed it. January 17th the Phillie Phanatic is supposed to make an appearance there. Screw ACME. That place is so expensive!

Congrats on the article.

I do so love BigCartel! One day I will unveil my shop -- hopefully before I turn 75... I think you should totally have a shop too -- your stuff is so cute. OK, I have to go get a tissue to clean up the drool on my keyboard caused by that cute print... Damn you and your cuteness Mel! ;)

OH! I LOVE your slogans!!! I might create more goodies if I could think of words... Funny, I was journalism student...
