Have I Mentioned I Love Free Stuff: Revisited

So last April I wrote about my free umbrella from Gilt.com.

Well today I have another awesome freebie deal. The website FashionStake.com gives each new member a $15 credit when they sign up. This usually is not so impressive because most of their products and in the $100+ range. But this week they have a whole slew of items well under $100.
One item in particular are these super cute mittens, which come in white, pink, or gray.

They are in the holiday showcase and cost only $13.
Also for only today and tomorrow you can get free shipping on your order with the coupon code "black friday".

So it is kind of like this...

$15 - $13 + $0 = Super cuteness!



You can thank me later when you are wearing super cute yet functional mittens while you text all your friends to let them know how awesome you are.

Redesigning My Life.

I am going through a tiny bit of a quarter life crisis lately.

Things have been so crazy and hectic for so long and now it is all slowing. to. a. stop.
I am stable and happy and now I keep focusing on those selfish things I always put on the back burner.
My art has been calling me. I have been going through my old portfolio, and rereading my poetry and I am longing to start creating again.
So I had a little idea. I have this one poem I wrote a few years back and it always reminds me how strong I am. I keep rereading it and today I decided I am going to illustrate it.

I am visualizing it as a sort of story/picture book when I finish. I just can't read the words without visualizing it so I am taking those images and putting them on paper.

Updates to follow...
