From Granny

I was going through the pile of photos/artwork that needed scanned and saw this card from Anna Arnold (Granny's Adventures). It's very "Anna," and such a cute card. I thought I would share!

Cafe Press

So, I've been messing around a little recently, setting us up a Cafe Press site. I haven't yet figured out everything, so I am not going to add it to our website or put a link up on Facebook...but if you have a chance, check it out and let me know what you think.

It seems like the dark shirts cost more, and that more than one color of ink ups the price. I have just been looking at the tshirts, but there are thousands of products you can choose from to list in your store. The NASMA site has some good examples of that.

The only thing I am a little skeptical about is that, for example, if you are shopping on our website and have things in your cart, and then visit the Cafe Press site and find things you want to buy there, too, you will have to do two separate check outs. I don't know how I feel about that yet, and I don't know whether shoppers would like it.

It does have potential to be a good resource though!

Have Your Cake and Pizza, Too

(via The Daily What.) I am going to try and remember to do this for Camri's birthday. She would get a huge kick out of it...She only likes the icing in cake anyway. And I'm positive she likes pizza more than cake.

From Across the Pond...

We have had the pleasure of some very "lovely" company in the office the past few days...Donna Taylor, from France, who writes the "From Across the Pond" column in the magazine! She will write about her visit in more detail in her columns to come, but we enjoyed two days of riding and visiting, along with a trip to one of my favorite restaurants, Sybill's in St. James. She flew into St. Louis after spending some time in the mountains in South Carolina, and flew out today to Utah to see more friends.
I really enjoyed Donna's visit, and hope she gets a chance to come back!

Cori, Donna and Sue

Mussels in a wine and olive oil sauce from Sybill's. Not pictured: sangria and chocolate lava cake. They were all insanely delicious. Grandma Sue said Donna was still talking about our supper when when she dropped her off at the airport this morning!

Like, very bad.

I am having a bad day. Like, very bad. But I was goofing around and found this, and it brightened my day a teensy bit.

Helpful Tip

I found this helpful tip today while working on an ad. It shows you how to rotate the brush you are using in Photoshop. This is kind of embarrassing, but before I found this I was rotating the canvas if I needed to use the brush at a different angle. You learn something new every day!

Let Me Try And Explain Again

All the stars up in the sky
And the leaves in the trees
All the broken bits that make you jump up
And grassy bits in between
All the matter in the world is how much I like you

Are Your Thoughts Results of Static Cling?

I'm back at work today. Came into work to find a MASSIVE pile of ads and articles. It's been a yucky, rainy day on top of all that! Oh well, I had to come back to reality eventually... I've had Jason Mraz and Adele on repeat today. Magazine's due on Friday, so I'm going to stay motivated (positive thinking, lol)!

Hurricane Oyester Bar and Grill

We had dinner at Hurricane Oyster Bar and Grill. I had oyester nachos and lobster tacos. They were delicious! Davey had wings, and he said they were some of the best he has ever eaten.

We are headed back to the beach in the a.m. After we get some sand castle building supplies, that is :)
