What's Up Saturday?


Some totally random stuff.....

1. First, check out this cool pic my sis took in Xinghai Square, Dalian, China. She has been sending me crazy photos, including tanks filled with live frogs at the grocery store (tastes like chicken!). I am trying to convince her to do a post for me about her experience in China. Funniest bit this week....my sister looks freakishly similar to Tina Fey. She said folks keep asking to take photos with her, but are ignoring her husband. I'm wondering if TMZ will soon be reporting about Tina Fey's trip to Dalian...hee hee!

2. I started a Tumblr site. I really have no clue what to do with it. Here it is

3. I came up with an idea for a children's book that has a super-hero weenie dog named Lucy. :^)

4. An observation from The Walking Dead. If everyone is infected, then why didn't Dale turn into a zombie after he died? Because Daryl shot him in the head? That doesn't make sense to me. Just curious. Ideas?

5. I am going to crush the competition at the tiara contest during the NECRWA Spring Conference. Yes,  perhaps I went a bit overboard with my tiara purchase at Etsy, but once I saw this one, I knew I had to have it....


You can call me Titania, Queen of the Fairies. Big thanks to Josie at Angelyques Trinkets for this gorgeous piece! Can't wait to see it in person.

6. I finished my new website design. It is mod, baby! Turning it over to my web designer, and hopefully it will be up soon. I'll let you know.

7. I watched Cold Case last night. One of the best things about that show is the old music! Love it. They played this song, Plush by Stone Temple Pilots. Enjoy!



Don't forget to stop by for The Martini Club tomorrow, where I'll discuss pastel colored Easter cocktails.

And I feel it,
Penelope

Re: #3. I love it. Makes me think of the adorable children's book Ree (Pioneer Woman) came out with regarding her basset hound Charlie.

I love the tiara!! Awesome! And the octopus kite is great too. Can't wait to see the new website.

Penelope said...

Thanks, Juju! I am trying to convince my friend who is an awesome artist to do this with me. It would be so much fun...I hope she says yes!

Penelope said...

Hi Casey....I am very excited to unveil my new website. It's a little bit quirky....!!!!

How about a tumblr dedicated to weenie dogs?

I use TUMBLR as a way to get people to come by the blog. I think its mostly graphic. Pinterest I love and I think it is really high traffic.

KB....I am following you on tumblr! Although I'm not sure what that means exactly. I will def. add lots of weenie dog photos and links.

Penelope said...

Steph....let me go see if I can find your tumblr account!

Love Plush and the tiara!

Penelope said...

Hi Amber! I love this song, too. You're coming to conference, right? You'll see the tiara in person!

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

Oh, I was thinking you were going to say your sister looks like the octopus kite. :)
Love the etsy art. So cool!
A new website, how exciting! But I'll miss your old homey website...

Penelope said...

Hi Julia! My old site is all Christmas, all the time. Since I'm expanding to add lumberjack books, children's books, and hopefully a new steampunk book, I think I need to jet the xmas theme. Although it was fun while it lasted. Thanks, chickie! ;^)
