down to business.

A few “important” things of note after this spring weekend…

First of all, I’ve joined the Twitter nation. I’m not really sure how long this will last (since I never intended on doing it in the first place), but for now, you can follow me by clicking the link in my right-hand sidebar. I have a feeling this last Facebook hiatus may be semi-permanent (it’s so refreshing NOT to know other people’s business), so Twitter and the blog — along with old-fashioned email and snail mail — will probably be the best ways to keep in touch.

Second, in the name of shameless promotion, I’ve added links to the blog where you can find information about my graphic design and editing services. I currently do a lot of freelance work for non-profits, but I’d love to expand my horizons by partnering with some of you! I can help you with announcements, invitations, business cards, blog headers and basic HTML, brochures, and more. Click to the left for more information!

Our third chew* chat is scheduled for tomorrow, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ll be discussing Donald Miller’s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (a book about the importance of living a story worth reading) and we’d love your thoughts! Leave a comment here or on the chew* blog if you’d like to see us cover something specific in our conversation. Your opinion would be a great addition to our conversation!

Lastly, I just finished the book 29 Gifts for our April book club meeting. (My friend blogged about it here), and I’ve embarked on my own 29 gifts journey. I started last Friday, and so far, it’s been a lot more challenging than I thought! So I’m curious: Can you remember a gift — of time, thought, or money — that meant a lot to you? As I try to give a gift a day for the next 29 days, I’d like to know what it is people love to receive. Is it a phone call? An anonymous word of encouragement? A monetary gift? Food? Flowers? Mail? Leave a comment with your ideas, and find out more about the 29 Gifts project here. I’ll be blogging my progress throughout my own project, so stay tuned!

{On another note, my bracket has bombed. Cross your fingers that Jordan’s disintegrates too. Currently, my only hope for a win is that my Cornell gamble paid off and that West Virginia keeps winning.}

Ooh you're going to have a new twitter follower once I'm done commenting! You've got such a pretty blog, I love your musings and fantastic links, especially your designs, you're so talented!

Hmm... You've also got a new google friends follower :)

Have a fab week, *I'll be back*

I always appreciate when my husband does little things for me. Like emptying the dishwasher because he knows I hate to do it. Little gifts of time and effort that mean a lot.
