This & That & Stuff & Things

This might be a longer post with a lot of items that don't relate at all. But, I've so much to talk about! First of all, my body is so sore. This weekend the fam got together for some picnic time & boating. My bro got a new knee-board for his b-day & I thought I'd give it a go. I have never been so frustrated in my life. I really wanted to conquer that thing. It brought back all my past feelings of extreme competitiveness in one huge surge. I actually got up on the board 2 times, but my knees were not all the way in position & the board just started going all loopy & wobbly & I couldn't hold on. I tried so hard to pull myself up MANY times after that, but eventually my arms just gave out. I got a picture of my brother on the board. Just pretend it's me on there, only I lasted about 4.2 seconds. Poo. And Grrrrr.

I stumbled upon a copy of our local arts & entertainment magazine called 'The Reactor', & found my little 'WhiMSy love' highlight inside! It was quite cool to see. And, it was really fun to see other Etsy artists that are very near to me! I might have to send some a message with a quick "Howdy neighbor!" attached. Check out the little highlight by clicking HERE. It's on page 32.
