Online Art Journal Auction -- Saturday Night!

I’m super excited about the Art Journal and Paper Crafting Supplies Auction that I’m hosting Saturday night, at 10 PM EST, at Top Hatter. You do have to be a member of TopHatter to visit the auction, (and please don’t say I didn’t warn you: it’s addictive!) but once you sign up, you’ll have access to some awesome deals on great supplies — like a handmade journal by me starting at $3 (retail is $16!), rolls of washi tape starting at $1.50 each or less, vintage wallpaper samples, kraft tags in a few different shapes and sizes, plus LOTS more — currently have nearly 50 items up for grabs. The great thing about the community auction is you can often get a way better deal than in the bigger auctions where hundreds of people might want the same thing you do! I’d love if you could attend (and if you can RSVP ahead of time, that will mean I can list more items, too!). Plus, if you want to sell anything, you still have time to submit your items!

Random: Dear Ihop

I don't go to Ihop anymore, not after a few bad experiences like the one described in the letter I'm about to share. (Plus, I don't end carb-loaded foods any longer!) It's a shame, because I love that they give you a carafe of coffee... unfortunately, the servers tend to just disappear after that. I'm not saying, of course, that everyone who works at Ihop is terrible at their jobs; just that the Providence location seemed to have a higher-than-average number.

I wrote this letter a long time ago, probably about 3 or 4 years ago, right when I first started dating Nick. I wrote this during one of our much-missed writer's nights at Mel & Kat's place. I was going to mail it, but then I forgot all about it until I found it while cleaning last week. I figured I'd share it here instead of just tossing it in the recycle bin. Ahh, memories...

"Dear Ihop,

Thanks to you, I may never know the wonders of the marionberry. Nor will I experience the tantalizing sensation of lightly-lemoned pancakes. No Oregon berries will whet my palate. In fact, I may never eat pancakes again, and it's all your fault.

Yes, Ihop, I blame you, faceless corporate entity of flapjack fame for the false advertising that has left my mouth watering for weeks on end, craving sweet delicious bites of Oregon berry pancakes. 'Yes, I will celebrate the United States!' thought I. 'No, I've never tried a marionberry!"

Today, for the first [and last] time, I came to Ihop. We ordered the Oregon berry pancakes. After being asked to pay in advance, a truly abymssal business practice, I must confess - as why should I be expected to tip before receiving any service? - we were informed that the pancakes we'd ordered were not available. Instead, having already paid for the premium pancakes, we were offered a bland and boring selection of ordinary pancakes. What could we do?

I have but one question, Ihop: what the fuck is a marionberry?"

You don't have to be a follower to win, but I will be super happy if you decide to become one! In fact, if you are a follower or become one, you can get an extra entry by leaving an extra comment telling me that you are!

Want another extra entry? Head on over to the Key Lime Supplies facebook page, like it, and leave a comment telling me the type of supplies you'd like to see in the store. Then come back here and leave another comment telling me that you visited.

Or visit my etsy shop, Key Lime Supplies, then come back here and leave another comment to tell me your favorite item in the shop!

(Yes, you can do all three -- which means you can get up to four entries for these zippers!)

For every 200 after that, I'll chose another winner for a small sampler package of zippers!

Free Download: 100 Year Old Postcard


I was sorting through a new batch of vintage photographs in my crafty stash and I came across the above image. Isn't she fabulous? I love her big hat, the details on her dress and, most of all, the expression on her face. Then I flipped the image over and realized that it is EXACTLY 100 years old -- to the day! Wow!
