bonus days

We have a treat over at Category Stories! Each month there will be 2 prompts. 2 chances to winthe monthly prize (this month's rocks and is from my favorite place) As a design team we are very exited! So get over there and link up your creations for either or both prompts this month..."What I love about ______" and "Date Night".

Other business: I haven't been blogging much. This is due to the fact that I am existing from deadline to deadline, either at work or in my creative life. I rewrote a play last month and sent it out for workshopping possibilities. I have begun my RDT application. I am gathering research for a proposal I will write and propose soon. Alas, I have fully settled back into GSS (Graduate Student Syndrome). Although this will not be a full-time, two-year case of GSS, it needs to remain at least until May.

Of course in my wisdom w/ all these important I signed up for the Survivor challenges over at Tallyscrapper.com. Everyone needs a release though. And the uber-rockin' art of scrapbooking is mine. (Yes that was meant to be a little facetious).

These are always the times in my life that I really want to do 3 million other cool things, like write in my journal more, get my new play on paper, read every Pulitzer Prize winning play ever, read all of The Watchmen series before the movie comes out in 2 weeks, throw an Oscar party...the list continues. But the reality is that most of those things will have to wait (of course the Oscar party won't make sense in May).

Hopefully all is well in your world. If you don't see me for awhile don't be worried, I'll emerge. And hopefully I'll emerge w/ initials behind my name.

Autism Speaks needs your creativity...

Please consider donating your time, creativity and your supplies to this cause. I love what they have done for the cause because they will donate 100% of the money directly to Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is a great organization and is privately funded so every dollar (especially in this economy) helps out.

Speaking of the economy, it's difficult to imagine writing out a donation check at this point in time. This is a great way to donate money by using what's already in your stash and giving your time.

Thanks for considering it! Also if you decide to participate in this card drive please post a photo and link me to it in the comments and I will draw a name out and you can win some happy mail from me.

i am thinking long and hard about what to buy keenan for his birthday (it's saturday). i am taking him for one treat on saturday and probably to dinner and a movie. but i am considering buying him an xbox360 (for birthday + vday). the reason i am not sure about this is because logically i know that i will most likely regret this gift, because ultimately it will be tempting to spend more time w/ it than me. but it's really the only thing he's wanted for a long time and he would never spend the money on himself. idk, i'd rather get my hair done (it's long overdue and has almost turned blonde again, ick). but that's not so much in the birthday spirit. ;)

we shall see. we shall see.

this makes me less likely to buy it...

What I love about...

Play along with us at Category Stories this month. The prompt is "What I love about..." I wanted mine to be topical for February so I chose my fave thing about this time of year: Oscar Season!
You have until Feb 27th to link us up (in the comment section) to your own creation (it doesn't have to be a scrapbook layout, it can be a card, an ATC, an altered project, it could be ANYTHING really). There is a great prize from Tallyscrapper.com this month!
