My First Giveaway - A Weez Wear Bed!

I’d like to tell you about my friend Rachael of Weez Wear. She makes the most fabulous soft and plushy donut beds! These beds are good for kitties, small dogs, ferrets, or other pets who love to sleep in posh beds!

Rachael has officially turned her hobby/side business into a full blown business, and it’s absolutely my pleasure to help her spread the word with a giveaway!

One lucky winner will get a donut bed made from the Dia de los Muertos skulls fabric (pictured below)... Plus some stellar catnip toys to boot!

This giveaway is valued at $45, so get yourself entered and please do spread the word!

We’ve got three Weez Wear beds, and the kitties love all of them. Right now, though, the cow bed is their favorite. 

See? Brianna approves:

She has a website at as well as an Etsy site. To top it off, for every 100 fans she gets on the Weez Wear Facebook fan page, Rachael donates a kitty bed to a shelter in her area!

Rachael will do custom orders (including finding special fabrics!), and she’s done lots of fun special projects, including ferret costumes and bedding, a bed for a special dog that fit a heating pad inside, and an extra fluffy bed for a kitty with special needs.

And if you don’t win… you can feel good helping her get her business rolling by purchasing a bed from her website or her Etsy site!

Good luck!

Here’s how to enter:
  1. Leave a comment by 11:59pm Central time on Monday, June 7th telling me who you’d like the bed to be for.
  2. Tweet or otherwise link this giveaway for additional chances to win! Please make sure you leave a separate comment for each place you’ve linked the giveaway so all your entries will count!

The fine print:
  • Shipping is to US and Canada ONLY
  • Comments posted after the deadline (June 7th 11:59PM Central time) will not be included in the drawing
  • The winner will need to email me with your address so you can get your awesome donut bed
  • To be as fair as possible, I will use a randomizer to choose the winner

Happy Birthday to Me!

It’s been a good birthday, but kind of weird, too, since I’m on a work trip and not at home. But… we’re in Florida—and while I’m not a huge fan of Florida, primarily because of the humidity, the weather here has been nice so far. I’m in the Ft. Lauderdale area, and staying in a really nice hotel. I happened to get an ocean view room on the 30th floor:

No complaints!

I had cards to open from hubby, a group of work folks sang happy birthday to me, and lots of people have lit up my Facebook wall. I’ve also gotten some texts too! So, I’m feelin’ the love, and it’s great!

Now, if only I could squeeze in a nap between all my meetings…

My Sister Got Married

Kevin & Wendy, married May 5, 2010

The wedding was really sweet, and a good time was had by all. 

I've always enjoyed taking pictures of people-- and I think I'm getting better and better at it.

But, there's something special about taking pictures at weddings. It's something I've considered doing for fun, or if a friend who's getting married and can't afford a proper wedding photographer.

I haven't gone through all of the pictures I took yet... only a few. I'm hoping to get through the rest soon! 

The ones I've processed are here. Feel free to take a look!
