What’s up, kiddies? Enjoying the weather? After a week of waxing poetic for short stories, bios, letters, websites, Valentine’s gifts, and why the mail should be sent on Sunday, I am ready for a break. I think some sort of crafty art project is in order. Or just eating more brownie batter.
But first I am proud to present my finds from another week of trolling the internet!

What do you need to do?

The creative folks at NaNoWriMo have teamed up with The Book Doctors to offer this year’s WriMo paticipants a lottery of sorts: anybody who submits a book pitch has a 1 in x thousand chance of being drawn, randomly, for a free consult with professional book polishers. It’s sort of like The Hunger Games except everybody wants to die.
Anyway, I plan to use this lottery as motivation to undertake the Writing of My Book Pitch. Since I’ve written something of Ye Olde Adventure Storye, I might just take the tone of this epic literary work by Mr. Mike Lacher:
“In Which I Fix my Girlfriend’s Grandparents’ WiFi and Am Hailed as a Conquering Hero”
Stop it, you weirdo designers!
Christian Louboutin created these 8″ ballerina-inspired heels for the English National Ballet’s summer party last year. They were auctioned off to the craziest person in the house.
Now I’m going to have rosin-fueled nightmares about those two years I took pointe classes. To say nothing of the four or five times I actually made it onto my toes.

I could spend the next week of my life writing the story of that man on the steps.

As Boyfriend and I have been painting the bedroom, I’ve found myself lost in a sea of paint samples. Colorful chicklets on the walls. I’m not sure if this site helps or hinders my natural obsession, but if you share my affinity for mixed media art, moods boards or color, you’re going to love Design Seeds.
Seriously, go there, like, now.
