It's my 111th post! I can't believe that I had enough to say to create that many posts. I think some were just filler.... Above is one of my submissions for Old School, you can see all of my submissions here.

What I like: It has taken me awhile to warm up to it, but I'm really liking the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows. I'm a creature of habit and resist change pretty often. I'm usually 2 albums behind on most artists that I like....

What I've been doing: I've finally finished the baby sweaters that I posted about ages ago. The second one was a challenge to stay motivated making. These are the first sweaters I've ever crocheted, they are a little wonky in spots, but overall really cute. The twins, Madden and Milan are expected any day...Where I've been/going: I was suppose to go to Seattle today, but I decided not to. I am getting read for Renegade and am at a loss of how much to bring with me. I've decided to bring 60 boxes, a 2-3 of all my prints, lots of cards, notebooks and a few extra surprises. I'm looking forward to my road trip on Friday, a whole day of driving, and no computer!

What I've been thinking: Here's what I've come up with for a giveaway. A tote bag (lined with a small pocket inside), a purse (contrasting lining) and 6 Little Zoo note cards. I was thinking of what I'd rather be doing today (I was inside all day) and I thought that sitting out in the park and writing sounded so nice.
So you have until Monday July 14th to leave me a comment of one of your favorite blogs to read. I'll put all the names in a bowl and pick a winner.
