The tick larvae have gotten uppity. These guys decided to come back (inside) and bite me in the ass. Literally.
Yes, that is my THUMB.
Ticks come in bitty, tiny, small, "normal," and OMG HOW LONG HAS THAT BEEN FEEDING? The bitty larvae (teeny tiny with 6 legs instead of 8) don't generally carry diseases though, because they haven't attached to the animals that ticks pick them up from yet. So that's good, I guess, because these look like deer tick larvae as far as I can tell.
One of the best ways you can find attached ticks quickly is by just running your hands over your skin. Tiny ticks will feel like little skin tags/bumps. Bigger ones will feel like, well, bigger skin tags/bumps. It's a little harder to find them in hairy areas, but the same thing works if you're thorough. Do it right after you come in from outside, then again 15 minutes later, and again 15 more minutes later. If you find any, change your clothes and check any areas you've been sitting, then check yourself one more time 15 minutes or so later.
(These two got on me just from sitting on my porch with a long skirt on. Wearing shorts or short skirts is one of the best ways to avoid them because you'll usually feel them trying to crawl up your bare skin and pull them off before they even bite.)
I want to create big, beautiful, complicated photoshoots. I've been planning this project for over a year and I've assembled my dream team of artists and authors.
Now I need the budget to make it a reality. Through the backer-exclusive updates, I'll take you with me as I arrange photoshoots, work on props and costumes, recruit models, complete test shots, edit photos and launch a fabulous gallery show.

This is it. This is me taking that advice. So thank you for sharing!
Okay internet, we need to talk. It has come to my attention that you have a problem. Well, lots of them, but right now I'm focusing on one specific problem, so just go with me.
You need to stop calling everything a "hack." It's not a hack. It's just doing a thing, using a thing, or making a thing. People have literally been doing that since the beginning of society. When our ancestors picked up stones and sharpened them into blades, they didn't need to call it a hack. IT WAS JUST MAKING A THING.
It was cute at first when you were using the term to apply to re-purposing things for uses they were never intended for. That's great. Very Depression-era mend-and-make-do thinking. (By the way, people in the Depression never called reusing things a "hack" either.) But now you are using the word hack to apply to pretty much any project where you make, change, or finish a thing. NO. IT'S NOT A HACK. STOP IT.
This article, for instance. (http://www.stylemotivation.com/20-amazing-diy-home-decor-hacks-anyone-can-do/) This article has some cute ideas for home decor. But I must protest the headline. PAINTING A DRESSER IS NOT A HACK. People have been doing that for as long as there have been dressers. In fact, unfinished furniture stores exist solely to serve the market of people who want to put their own custom finish on furniture!
Likewise, PAINTING A GLASS IS NOT A HACK. See above. It's just putting some fucking paint on a fucking glass. Covering lampshades with fabric? Hello, have you HEARD of Martha Stewart, and if not, how are you even posting on the internet right now from your cave?
This article goes on to suggest other great innovations such as lining a tray with fabric and putting beads on things. SUCH INSPIRE. VERY HACK.
Look, I have no problem with people rehashing decor ideas and making DIY articles on the internet. Go on with your bad self! But OTHER people who are pretending to "write" articles by just aggregating a bunch of photos and links and then making a list of "hacks" need to PIPE THE FUCK DOWN. They're not hacks. And you're not fooling anyone about your writing abilities. Stop it. JUST STOP IT. YOU'RE DOING A BAD THING AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD.
So next time you see a neat idea and you feel tempted to say, "hey, that's a great hack!" just stop. Stop and say to yourself, "Self, I think you mean that's a great IDEA. Because putting fucking paint on a fucking glass is not a hack, no matter how pretty the finished product looks."
I just want to take a moment to pimp this little herb shop, Colonial Creek Farms. In my quest for Silver Thyme, I ended up ordering 3 varieties of thyme, 2 mints, and winter savory from them. The packing was the BEST I have ever seen for live plants, the plants were quite full and large, and the shipping costs and practices are excellent. If you are looking for rare or hard-to-find varieties, I highly recommend them!
Princess Charming will be a series of books for awesome princesses — whether said princess is the one-year-old in your lap or your own inner princess.
These are princesses that you won't find anywhere else. Princesses who defy convention, princesses who don't fit into mainstream molds, princesses who are as awesome as our own kids.
We're starting off with Princess Kadri and three books: a picture book, a bedtime book, and an early reader book. After our initial funding goal, we'll unlock additional princesses, each awesome in their own way and each with their own stories to tell.
I am unspeakably excited about this project and I'm really looking forward to seeing if it's got the legs to do the heavy lifting I hope it can do. If you've got a couple minutes, please check out the kickstarter. If you've got a few seconds, please reshare, retweet, reblog, and share this around.
It's only with your help that this project will fulfill its potential. Thanks! :)
Starting at the low, low price of "make me an offer."
I'll be adding Tees shortly.
(I think the art books are gone to an art teacher, but the knitting books are still here.)
please double check that you're cool getting rid of any wallscrolls that are yours.
