Hello my friends! A happy Monday to you! I am getting ready for my trip to New Orleans this weekend, I am pretty out of my mind excited. It was a trip that was a year in the making so I really can’t believe it’s here already. The year before last I was invited to the same weekend getaway by a girlfriend I met on line, I couldn’t make it because I started a new job for a dog food company that canned me a couple weeks later for writing on my blog that I thought no one liked me. They said they read it and that it seemed like I was unhappy there. So my suspicions were accurate they didn’t like me, because if they did they would have rectified that feeling of no one liking me, no? Anyways, I wasn’t cut out for dog food. Fast forward a year later, I was invited again and was able to go, granted I was terrified that I would get there and well that no one would like me (I am terribly insecure with new people), guess what? They liked me, I loved them and we planned to make it an annual event. I highly recommend doing something like this yourselves if you have a group of on-line/blog friends that you have never met and it seems not plausible because you live all over the country (or even in another country), planning a weekend getaway is a lot easier (and less expensive) than going to one of the big blogger type conventions. We rented a small beach house, we bought groceries, we took turns cooking, we talked our heads off and we learned so much from each other. It was worth every second. And now we are doing it all over again, this time in The Big Easy!
Of course, there’s my move to contend with. I have started to take down the studio, it’s going to be a long and arduous task, but I know you will help me right? I need to send some things off to new homes so for today’s bestowal I am going to give one lucky winner the remainder of my wood storage box inventory, it should be about 5-6 boxes. There is a little disclosure involved, not all will be in perfect condition, meaning some may not have a plexi top or there may be rogue dents (that can be sanded out or painted). They will still be awesome storage though and if I had room I would keep them for my studio, but alas space is at a premium and I am going to need to send these off. To enter to win please answer the following question by Sunday, April 7, 2013:
What is your favorite word or words and why?
I am going to need to think on this one myself since I love so many of them for different reasons, I shall join you in the comments later this week!
P.S. I LOVED all your answers last week, I feel I know you so much better, it’s nice to feel like I am not the only one with strange peccadillo’s. There was many I shared with you too. I chose Debe as the winner, because I too at my advanced age am still trying to figure out what I am going to do with my life + I can not handle anyone reading my magazines before I do! I also want to give something to Katie E. because she took the time to say ‘hi’ to a fellow Winnipegean and I love the idea of this being a community and that it doesn’t have to just be me up here flapping my gums! Ladies please email me your addresses and I will send your prizes off!
P.P.S. Nicole Classes is giving away a year of classes, stop by here for a chance to win. I have recommended them plenty before and even if you don’t enter it’s worth book marking, it’s an excellent resource!
