That's a Wrap

Where has the week gone? Is it already time for another weekly/intermittent wrap-up? Methinks yes, it is.


It won't surprise you to hear that I've been slacking this week. It will surprise you even less to hear that I haven't really been slacking, I've actually been working my buns off, but I barely managed to get anything done. Chalk it up to inefficiency. And too much time on Facebook.

I also spent more time than I'd care to admit creating a splash page for As The Dollhouse Turns, which is sort of ironic because it prevented me from having time to write another episode. Actually, that might not be ironic, but Alanis Morissette screwed me up forever on the real definition of that word. In any case, now there's one spot where all the ATDT episodes are summed up and accessible and in order, even!

Thanks for being so supportive of the first installment of Craptacular Crafts, a new series in which I repost things that I already wrote on my old craft blog, which I've unceremoniously abandoned like a drunk prom date. We kicked things off with a purse you can make with pockets from a button-down shirt - as a bonus, once you cut the pockets off, the shirt becomes the perfect top for easy-access nursing (results may vary).

Also, I embarrassed myself at a fancy party.

I shared how I got blindsided by some unforeseen rites of passage.

And on CraftFail, I revealed a Pinterest-inspired button bowl that imploded.

But other people are awesome, besides just me and you! Here's some of the stuff you don't want to miss:
This laugh-out-loud list of things that cook better than an Easy Bake Oven, by Let Me Start By Saying
The painfully familiar diary entries of a mom with a sick kid by You Know It Happens At Your House Too
This Girl Scout cookie meme by Ninja Mom
Not to mention, I have three fabulous, talented, good-looking blog sponsors who would just adore a visit from you. Tell them I sent you, and then give them a big kiss on the face (from me, of course - a kiss from you might be awkward, if you've never met before).
My Pretty Chic Boutique is the place to go for beautiful, handmade jewelry - you can select from the gorgeous pieces she has pictured (They're like eye candy you get to wear!), or you can place a custom order.
You're My Favorite Today is where the sweet and funny Michelle shares her opinions, thoughts, and stories and where you'll start blog-crushing on her (it's true, it'll happen). Check out her Then and Now comparison of how life has changed for kids, and you'll see what I mean.
Cloudy, With A Chance Of Wine is the bloggy home of Dani, who will make you laugh and want to be her bestie. Go ahead and read how she fell off a treadmill and try to tell me you don't want to take a bottle of wine over to her house and hang out.
And finally, a huge thank you to all of you - for reading, and subscribing, and for clicking on that brown Top Mommy Blogs banner every day which, with the awesome Power Of Your Clicks, has made me the #4 humor blog over there! You guys are the bestest! Please, each of you, give yourself a hug from me, and feel free to go out and buy yourself an appreciation gift - make it something nice, money is no object.

P.S. As long as we're talking about your money.

    1. Thank you! I hope it keeps things organized a little better - if I ask people to read my little scribbles, the least I can do is make it easy on their eyeballs. :)

  2. I'm sure you can feel me breathing down your neck, but if not, be warned. I'm sitting at #20, and girl, I'm coming after you. Or not, since I can't stop clicking your banner. Sonofabitch!

    1. I wondered where that humid feeling on my neck was coming from. Thanks for your clicky help getting me to #4, and wootwoot - congrats on #20! You know how those lists rearrange themselves daily, so I'm sure you'll pass me any second, if you haven't already. Why do you think I had to hurry up and mention it today???
