A Whole Bunch Of Stuff and Some Shop Info
(please not that I am saying that in the same sexy way that Natalie Portman did in Closer)
did you all miss me?
We I had a somewhat eventful and uneventful weekend...as you well know we had the the bf's little one this weekend so there was oodles of Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock...Friday night passed without event Keith was at work so the "mean cheese" (little sarah, will explain nickname at a later date...ooooo such mystery) and I chilled at home content with fashion magazines and bad tv.
Saturday Keith and I decided to get her out of the house, because the weather was awful and we could not bring her to the park we decided to go to a giant McDonalds with one of those disgusting indoor play areas which is really just a giant petri dish of yuck.....but I digress.
While there we were overwhelmed by the most horrible attack on ALL of our senses...first, we're in a McDonalds and that is bad enough, but the entire place smelled like feet, and it was SO loud, there was a princess birthday party so there were a ton of little girls screaming, then there was a boy in the corner just jamming his hand on his butt...but when we saw a little girl "pleasuring herself" against a giant French Fry sculpture....well that was when we HAD to leave...
THIS is why I am not cut out for full time parenting....I just couldn't handle it.
Because of the giant fun she had the "mean cheese" feel asleep early, and we are about to sleep as well when a VERY loud gunshot was heard, immediately followed by two more shots...
Now I hate to say this but my first thought was that our depressed alcoholic neighbor had shot his wife and child and then himself, but then we hard a ton of voices and there were people right outside our door, Keith was all brave and trying to look out the window to get info, but we could barely see anything, I called 911, but the cops took forever to get there...and by then, all was quiet, people scattered into the park and drove away.
Though the cops were there again this morning looking through the grass...
Oh the drama....figures, right when I am about to become a Stay At Home Artist....things go to complete and total hell.
We need to move, seriously...
The rest of the weekend passed without further incident, highlights include, a inpromptu dance party sure it was just me and the little one, but I donned a princess skirt and feather boa and we strutted supermodel style through the apartment to Justin Timberlake....
I am pretty positive that I brought sexy back in my little get up.
Then last night I stayed up late to work, on some stuff. I am planning my Valentine's Strategy as I type this, so you darling ones are the first to know.
As some of you may realize during the Christmas Holiday I sent out a special discount mailing to all my buyers offering them a special discount, well I am planning on doing the same thing for V-Day...Yay!!!
I am announcing it here first, even before the mailing goes out, I am also planning on GIVING AWAY 2 pieces of artwork in the coming weeks.
I will be giving away a free 8x8 original piece to my 575th item sold, I am at 572 now....so get it while you can...just 3 items, no matter what they are you will get the free collage.
I will announce the other freebie later in the week.
So blog readers...here is your chance, the special V-Day discount code is Valentines07 just write that in the message to buyer section and wait for a new invoice before you pay.
You will get 20% off everything in my shop with that special code, now through February 14th.
