PSA to Squirrels Everywhere

Ode to a Squirrel
by: Laura Warecki
Power lines are not your tight rope
They are not as safe as you might hope
I saw you get shocked this weekend
Something that I would not recommend
And then the power went out and I moped.

please join me in a moment of silence to mourn the loss of a source of entertainment for my cats.

Confession Tuesday will return at it's regularly scheduled time next week.

Party on...

It's a strange feeling to miss someone you never knew.  Steve Jobs passed last night and as I'm sure you've read all over the internet, people are heartbroken. But what we should all learn from this is, make your mark on the world, no matter how big or small, and make sure that mark is something you love and are so very proud of.  Hats off to you, Steve Jobs, for creating that vision and impacting so many people's personal and professional lives in every way. I have no doubt that Apple will continue to rock the party and fulfill Steve Jobs' vision.  

festival of lanterns: available in my shop

So party on, everyone, make your mark!

Confession Tuesday: I worked my first 100hr work week

So maybe there are a lot of people that work 100 hours a week, but last week was my first.  I've been a steady 40hour/week kind of girl for about 3.5 years and then I started my business and bumped that up to about 60hours/week for a couple months.  and then I made a deposit for my first craft show. 

enter the 100hour work week. 

And as hard and exhausting as it was, I've never felt more accomplished, more proud, or more excited!  Here are a few pictures from my show!

I had a great time, made some new friends, and had some old friend's visit!  Check out Curly Girl Design's mini review of me over on the Curly Girl Blog!

I'll be back later this week to show you the new items in my shop (some of which you can see above) but if you can' wait, go look for yourself in the Paper Taxi etsy shop!
