Julep Polish Giveaway #2: Candace!

It went over SO WELL last year that I’m hosting another Julep Polish Giveaway!  Like last year, I went for a Mystery Box with my Julep Maven subscription and ended up with a duplicate color.  So, no use in hanging on to it… it can be YOURS if you play your cards right!

Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest: The Results!

Week before last I wrapped up my Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest.  I’ll be honest – it was not as popular as I’d hoped.  I had hoped for more entries/guesses.  I even put some money into advertising the contest since I was lucky enough to get sponsored prizes from XShot and iMemories (thanks again!).  In part, I think I shot myself in the foot by calling it a photo editing contest since no actual photo editing was required by entrants, so lesson learned!  In the end I had fun, and, the winners are a pair of sisters!

A Sorta Kinda Photo Editing Contest!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2015!

As you may have imagined, it’s been a hard 30 days or so for me.  Losing Winston, then a whirlwind of a conference in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit West 15, then getting the annual “Conference Crud” flu and passing it to my brother and husband, well… let’s just say my Christmas tree has turned into a Super Bowl Birthday Valentine’s Day tree.

Saying Goodbye to Winston the Wonder Pug

I need this weekend to last forever.  I don’t want Monday night to come, but it has to.  I’ll have time for a proper send off into the unknown for Winston the Wonder Pug.  I can’t ask him to keep kicking around for me anymore.
