Well, hell.

I’ve been silent for the last few days because the 2011 Summer of Suck has continued with another family emergency.  Because of that, and the anniversary trip that Jethro and I have planned for next week, Kind of a Mess will be taking another hiatus for two weeks.  BUT, when I come back on the 26th, there’ll be a giveaway (!!!) and some other fun things I have planned. 

Also, I will attempt to not suck so hard, but I’m not making any promises.

In the interim, let’s use this post as a suggestion box.  Anything you want to see more of?  Less of?  Recipes I should try and then blog about?  Other blogs that I’m not reading that I should be and should be linking to?  More crafty things?*  Subjects you want to hear me blather on about?  (I am an excellent blatherer. Jethro refuses to listen to me on long car rides, so my blathering muscles are going to waste.)

On a way more fun sidenote, I am the awesome because at Love Your Way, my suggestion won their renaming project!!  I’m super excited, more for being a part of their naming than the prize (which is also awesome.)  Check it out here, and keep an eye out tomorrow for the downloadable thank you card they’ve designed.

Thank you for your patience, my moppets.  I love you more than my luggage.

*I have a TON of craft projects going on, but I can’t show you any of them because they are gifts for people who read this blog and even though they PROMISE they wouldn’t read a post about their present, they cannot be trusted. (MOM.)

    DUDE. It occured to me over the weekend that WE ARE SO BEHIND ON OUR LITTLE DRESSES FOR AFRICA! I said I’d do 50 this year … and not one has been done.

    In my defense, I’ve been working on Big Dresses For Brides, but still.

    I think a trip to Target is in order. After all, it’s dorm-move-in season, so wildly patterned pillowcases abound!

    In other news … enjoy your trip. Anniveraries ftw!

      ACK! You are SO right. Come visit again and we’ll spend the whole time sewing. 🙂

      I need to get on that, I have tons of fabric cut out, just none sewn!

A contest for the best artistic/comic rendition of Kind of Messy Adventures? I’ve seen DDay’s skillz, I’ll bet there are some awesome(ly rusty) MS Paint talents going to waste out ther 🙂

    Congrats on the win!

    Congratulations on the anniversary!

    And I’m honored that you love us more than your luggage. That means a lot. Unless your luggage is ugly and broken. I hope it isn’t, because suitcases are giant purses, and everyone needs a purse they love!

    Summer of Suck. I had one of those one time. Hopefully it’ll die and won’t turn into the fall of…foibles. (That’s the only appropriate f word I could come up with.)*
