Woo! Just received in the mail what may well be The Coolest Thing Ever:
Apparently I am a blonde. (This is not the first time such a thing has been suggested, by the way.) Thank you, Gretel; I am framing this one.
Also, I was visiting Tara over the weekend and she proceeded to bestow upon me a sack of princely goodies:
These are, clockwise from left to right: hot chocolate mix, pirate bandages (arr!), a card and chocolate-themed stickers, an advance reading copy of the first book in a series Tara is illustrating (plug, plug), and some handmade cookie-cutter soaps.
She shouldn't be giving me goodies; it was her birthday! Not that I'm complaining or anything.
Very, very happy to have stumbled upon the SOSF. I feel very blessed indeed to get to know such wonderful and creative people. Thanks.
