Advertising Humanism

I received a lapel pin today from the American Humanist Association. They recommend that I wear it on my shirt as a declaration of "I can be good without god." Nice thought, but I'm not really a lapel pin type of girl. I don't know many people who are. Maybe they should try bumper stickers. Anyhow, I thought I'd just take a picture and put it here.

Letterpress Box

Look what I found at a flea market today. A vintage letterpress box! Now it's a  knick knack shelf.

I just listed some adorable new boots in my Etsy shop! You know you want them!

Gunne Sax

New item listed on Etsy! It's an amazing vintage Gunne Sax dress made in the 70's. These were very popular and it's in great condition!


Dylans 1st birthday is July 13th but we will be having her party on the 9th. It's not going to be anything big, but I want the decorations to be big. The theme is just rainbow. I want it to be freakishly colorful. I've been making tissue paper pom poms at work. I'm gonna put them everywhere.

It's gonna be great. Here's the cake I'm making.

And here are some new pics of the almost birthday girl!

Escape From Corporate America

I made my first sale on Etsy today! This is my first small step away from working a regular job towards supporting myself with something I actually like to do! Hooray!

More Etsy!

I listed a couple more things on Etsy. Please excuse the badly posed shots of me. I didn't have anyone else to model the scarves and I feel so awkward doing it myself. I'm not a "take pictures of myself posing" type of girl. Buy some stuff!

Pom Poms!

I'm getting pretty good at making these thingys!

Fathers Day Pancakes

Dylan and I made pancakes for Nick for Fathers Day this morning.

Dylan had her first pancakes. Dylan sized ones, of course.

And we served daddy breakfast in bed.

Happy Fathers day Nick! You are a better dad than I could have imagined.

Eureka Springs

Last summer Nick and I took a trip to Eureka Springs. I was 9 months pregnant and it was our last hurah before becoming parents. It was a great trip and I've been thinking about it lately wishing we could do it again.

We splurged and got a really great hotel room and the supposedly haunted Crecent Hotel. We even got one of the supposedly haunted rooms. When we went on the Ghost Tour (part of the package) our room was one of the stops! Anyhow, nothing supernatural happened. Oh well.

I was given several copies of "The Watchtower" yesterday. It is an official Jehovahs Witness publication. This one struck me as particularly interesting.

I believe, according to definition, religious beliefs always fall under the heading of "Faith."

 faith (from 
 confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability.
 belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.
belief in god or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.
belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with            someone concerning honesty.
a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith. 

However, this publication continually refers to thier beliefs as fact.

fact (from
something that actually exists; reality; truth: Your fears have no basis in fact.
something known to exist or to have happened: Space travel is now a fact.
a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true: Scientists gather facts about plant growth.

Representing something to be fact that you admit is a matter of faith (since there is no scientific evidence to support it) seems very deceitful.

Baby Shower

We had Stephanies baby shower yesterday. I made cupcakes and chocolate dipped marshmallows and I helped dip some strawberries. Yum.

It was also Dylans first time to go swimming. She loved it of course!
