A-Z Year and a Super Generous Offer from Paper Temptress

So, I just started reading/following Nicole Maki's blog. I know, I've been living under a rock and I'm late to the Nicole Maki party. What can you do? I read A LOT of blogs. Anyhow, I'm kind of in love with her (in a totally straight non-weird way.) I like the way she writes. I like the way she thinks. And if we were to meet in person, I'm sure we'd get along very well.

Ok, enough about my new found love for Nicole. While I was on her blog, I found this awesome article she wrote about her A-Z Year. To super simplify, you spend two weeks focused on a letter and doing something new. You will go through the entire alphabet in a year. How cool is that? I am loving this idea! She even has an A-Z Year Ning Group you can join for ideas. And as always, I'm late to the party so I will be starting with the letter B.

For you "B" viewing pleasure today, I give to you a picture of the Baby. :) Today, we are going to hang out with Brady's Best friend and his family. And we are all going to eat BBQ together. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. I love doing new things and this will really push me to think outside my box.

On a totally different note, I was talking to Patricia of Paper Temptress yesterday and she's doing the most generous thing ever! If you donate $10 or more to a charity to benefit Haiti, she will send you a Silver Lustre Paper package for free! Here's what she wrote to me:
"PaperTemptress is offering a Silver Lustre Package for every donation of $10 or more that is donated to any charity for Haiti by anyone for the next two weeks. All you have to do is email me at patricia@papertemptress.com with some form of proof, an email confirming the donation..a cc bill (of course cover the numbers) or any type of proof of a donation with an address and I will send you a Silver Lustre package (my absolute favorite) free of charge. There is no greater joy than giving! I hope to hear from all of you so please donate to any charity of your choice to help during this tragedy."
