just some bits of randomness


♥ Last night I created a new mini art journal in honor of the Kim family. It's 4.5 x 6 canvas paper that I spiral bound. I titled it "Treasure Life" and each day until it's full I plan to document something I was grateful for that day. A physical reminder to live + cherish life.
Just started reading up on unschooling, after first hearing the term from Amanda and again from "BellaBlue". I am completely intrigued.
Portals Zine Issue #4 FIBERS is now up for pre-order. Please wait on Intl' orders as there has been a mistake in pricing and we need to get that remedied. Thanks!
I am a third of the way through Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith that I started this morning and am soaking in every word of it.
Wanna meet this weekend? I will be at the Felt Club on Saturday perusing about. I've also arranged a Blythe Meet on Sunday in Japantown (Los Angeles). You can find all the information for it at that forum thread. Email me if you're coming to either so we can make arrangements to meet up! :)
Christmas Cards are on SALE this weekend Fri. - Sun. FREE shipping if you order two or more sets! Each set is on sale for $10 through the weekend. All orders will be shipped Monday.

The Portals button is fixed. It had the right pricing in PayPal I just spaced when adding it to the site. Order away!

I heard about 'unschooling' on Dr. Phil...I personally have to give it a thumbs down, but hey, what works for some doesn't always work for all!

I think your project is a great idea! We all need to focus on whats important in life and cherish every single day. We will never know when it is our last. I too was very affected with the 'Kim's' story. He was a very couragous man to do what he did.

Have a fun weekend!!
