Let’s do it again, shall we?
A Mighty Summit tote giveaway

Congrats to black belt/wine lover/redheadΒ Karina Jean, winner of the Mighty Summit bag.
She’s a goodie. And so are you.Β 

Since it was so fun to give away the Epiphanie bag, when I had another chance to give you cats something good, I jumped. Thanks long term readers for helping me out. Thanks new readers too!

You’ve heard about those Mighty Summit bags filled with treats?
I have this year’s for you.
It’s a doozy.

We start with the bag.
Large Natural Zip Top Canvas Tote Bag by Lands End
This is our go-to carry on. Perfect for packing children. Not actual children. Come to think of it, I do tote both toddlers around in mine from time to time.
They’re little and fun to put into things.
The children, not the bags.
(I’m going to stop now.)

Tieks by Gavrieli
Mine are coppery and glittery and perfect. When you’re at as many parties as I am, these are essential. They are beautifully packaged and come with a little bag for storage.

Bamboo Dahlia Necklace By Feisty Elle
I always find something more practical to spend my money on than accessories. This necklace makes it seem as if that’s not the case

Mixed bag
This bag doesn’t get as much use as it will with my NEXT laptop. The laptop I have now is rather jacked from the toddlers.

Tattly Temporary Tattoos
My little ladies love the rainbow tattoos. I prefer the robots. James likes them all.

Typekit Subscription
I am proud to use Typekit for lots of projects. Easy, straightforward to implement and beautiful

The Happiness Project
I sat next to Gretchen Rubin at our closing dinner. She’s the most curious lady I’ve ever met. (And I don’t mean that she’s CURIOUS. I mean she’s honestly curious. She wants to know how the world works. It all fascinates her. Which is awesome.) Her blog and her New York Times Bestselling book demonstrate her curiosity and her willingness to share all she’s learned.

The Quintet Necklace by Lemonade Handmade
This little necklace isn’t just special for representing a commitment to yourself. It’s also looks great with lots of other kinds of jewelry.

Maggie tells me that the contest is over next Thursday, October 13. (So enter quickly). Midnight, PST. Triple your chances to win by commenting at the sites of Ms. Maggie and Ms. Laura at The Queso.

Like I just did for the Epiphanie bag, I’ll use random.org to select the winner. If you win, I’ll reach out by email to make it real and then let you know who won next Friday in its own post and in this original post. You can only win if you’re in U.S. and Canada.

    the idea of a life list scared me initially, because my gut reaction was stress about a number of goals that i was afraid i wouldn’t accomplish, and then i’d be disappointed in myself. so glad that i got over that πŸ™‚ i still think that one of my top (and most scary) life list items will be investing in a house–one that’s not the home i live in, and is solely for me to fix up and re-sell. i’d like to have that done within the next 5 years.

    from my own life list::

    train for/run a 5k race – i was never one that had to work out until my junior year in hs. i was diagnosed with PCOS – i was told that i may never have kids on my own and i gained weight like it was my job. now, i have two beautiful children, one adopted and one home-grown and i want to be healthy and a good example for them. i think that this will be a step in the right direction for me!

    Kara says:

    This is actually kind of two things on my list, which I am working on simultaneously.

    One item is that I want to try to sell some of my photography.

    Another is that I want to (desperately need to) organize the almost 1Tb of years worth of photography that I have stored on an external drive. You should know that I am not an organized person by nature and for years when I have been downloading my photos to my computer, I would let the computer auto-assign the folder a name based on the date that the photos were downloaded on. Imagine hundreds of folders with no identification other then month-day-year.

    So when I found a service that I could use to sell photos from my site without having to go to the hassle of setting up an etsy store, I decided that I wanted to try it.

    So I am going through my years and years of photography picking out stuff to try to sell. Which means that I am kind of organizing as I go.

    With luck and a lot of work, I will have my photo archive organized and photos up for sale on my site by Halloween.

    Someday, I hope to attend a mighty something event. They sound lovely, refreshing, and inspiring.

    And I’m in a similar boat to Kara — a life list item is figuring out how to sell my photography. Mostly because I want to share it with others. I have my photos on my walls, and people are always asking me where I got the pics (and then asking why I don’t sell them). One of these days, I’ll come up for air and finally get around to setting something up.
