I feel like an A-Ha video

Here I am in Paul’s blog. I feel kind of like the A-Ha video from the ‘80s, where the girl suddenly finds herself in the middle of a comic book…

Please don’t throw me into the trash can when it’s over, Paul!! ;-)

Next week while Paul is slacking off in the Bahamas — I mean working hard reef diving and eating rice & peas — a few of us are going to help him keep his post-a-day record intact by guest blogging for him. I thought I’d take a shot at writing a quick post today before the real pressure is on, to make sure everything is working OK.

So… I’m going to take this opportunity to give you a little sneak preview of the giveaway my blog partner Victoria and I are announcing this Friday on our blog, DesignTies. Yes, that’s a shameless plug :-D What can I say, I have no shame ;-) We’re giving away something that was created especially for us by a talented artist in North Carolina. I won’t hold the fact that she’s a Tar Heels fan against her. Even though North Carolina won the 2009 NCAA title and Duke choked as usual and didn’t even make it to the Sweet Sixteen… but really, I’m not bitter… ;-)

But I digress… here are a few hints for you — can you guess what we’re giving away??

1. It’s purple.

2. It’s glamourous.


3. It’s smaller than a breadbox. That’s my subtle tie-in to the KITCHEN part of Paul’s blog name :-)


OK, to be honest, you’ll never guess what it is based on these hints. So you’ll just have to come check out our blog on Friday and see what it is!! :-)

Now I have to think of something clever and interesting to write about for my post next week. Paul is a hard act to follow!! But I’ll do my best to entertain you, inform you, and hopefully not offend you :-)


P.S. Hey Paul, did you notice I typed ~ ’80s ~ properly?? :-)

  1. That purple flower is magnificent! I just sat here scrolling it up and down for the cool effect. :)

  2. Thanks for the comment. That darn Kelly sure has an eye. I have no idea where she found it, but that is a really cool image.


Talk to me!
