Fifty told me, go head switch the style up, and if they hate then let them hate, and watch the money pile up

I have been doing craft shows on and off for ten years. The only one I am doing this season is a boutique - this week, featuring local artists who are all designers and architects. If you are in the Los Angeles area and are interested in doing some holiday shopping, send me an email and I'll give you the details.

Or, if you want to be lazy and just get stuff for free, today is your lucky day. Win a pack of stationery items. You can keep them, or shorten your holiday list by giving them away, it's your choice. You will win a collection of all sorts of things, holiday tags, cards, it will also include a card set from my new line of Modern cards:
You can go here and buy them or if you are a lurker/cheap bastard, leave a comment. Tell me how you got here. Why do you keep coming back? For the recipes? My tales of woe? Lord knows. However if you are the one who comes here after googling "What do boobs feel like", well then, I don't want to know, really.

Winner to be chosen randomly, you have til Thursday night. Good luck!

That would officially make me the first cheap bastard. I found this blog a few weeks ago, though I don't recall how, and I keep coming back because your hilarious writing (including tales of woe) makes me smile.

Hey, I'm both of those things!

I forget how I found your blog... perhaps a link on another? But I keep coming back for the witty headlines (I am not ashamed to admit that I have been trying to figure out where Kanye sampled that lyric from for FOREVER) and the knitting and the cooking and the architecture references. Wheee!

CB #3 or wannabee-winner-of-all things....came to you through Little Mochi and to her from Donna Downey. Yep, love the recipes with photos (thank you a hundred times over), your hilarious circling-the-drain writings, and craftiness. BTW, where and when is the boutique?

I would love to shorten my list.
I have been here so long I can't remember how I got here, but I stay for daily updates.

I've been coming here a year because I bought cards from you last Christmas.....wow, that's crazy. I keep coming back because it's like the food network. I love to read your recipes and look at the pretty food pictures but don't actually make anything. :)

I think you found me, but I could be wrong. I'm neither a lurker or a cheap bastard (okay, I am a cheap bastard sometimes). I'm just seriously behind on my blog reading because of NaBloPoMo, the antichrist. And I'm also broke. Since I live in the third world, that means I'm very, very broke. Hahaha. I love your work though, for what it's worth.

I come back here because I find you terribly fascinating. Any my husband loves your recipes. :)

I don't know how I found your blog, but I love Target, The Office and 30Rock, so I keep coming back for more!

I don't remember who I stole your link from, but I do remember it had something to do with cupcakes.

I've kept coming back because 1) you're funny 2) I love the creative recipes and 3) I'm in awe of the nifty neato things you make.

Plus, I love Target and anyone else who has the Target love is a-okay in my book.

I've been reading your blog for months now. I don't remember how I found your blog. I think from another blog, but I'm not too sure. I read your blog for your tales of woe, recipes . . .basically for everything. It's funny and entertaining.

it was Will from BeTheboy who brought me here. And I'm so thankful. I can't stop reading you, and I'm totally amazed at your skills. I also love cooking and trying new things in the kitchen, so you are a great inspiration. Plus, you make me laugh.

oh, and you don't need to include me on your giveaway. Shipping would cost you too much (I live in Spain!)

I'm not cheap I'm frugal! I got here because you left a comment about high heels ( I LEFT THEM ALSO IN NJ!)

Personalized cards...I would like them in my name (real name of course!)

Hi there! I found you via knitting some how or another, but I keep coming back for your kids stories.

I had to share with my knitting group about your "peanut" stories...here at our house we call them beans. They were all cracking up about the smelly nuts. LMAO!!!!

yes to cheap bastard (I married a Dutchman, can't help it), yes to tales of woe and the rest. I usually need a laugh at least once a day in the midst of motherly chaos, so that's why I keep coming back. I'm also somewhat of a stationery/paper products hoarder so this is like two fixes in one. I found your blog through another blog, but can't remember which. Thanks for the laughs!

I am guilty of being both a lurker *and* a cheap bastard.
I don't remember how I got here - possibly through Be the Boy?
I stay because I like your writing style. I love the recipes. I looove your Office recaps.

Another cheapo here! Plus I love to win things. That's part of the cheap bastard trait! :) I got here via your Flickr party decorations and I stayed for the same, plus the recipes, plus I LOVE that you can go to Disneyland ever week!

I can even pin point the post Will did that made me find you, and made me fall in like.

I found you through Nina and Will's blogs (the slack daily and the be the boy) and honestly I think you're very funny and i share a target addiction. also your recipies do inspire me to try to eat something different for dinner once and awhile. i mean if your kids can ask for salmon for dinner i can too ;)

I found you thru Will's blog, and I stay because you made me dribble Coke onto my desk while trying to stifle laughter. I also enjoy reading about your new creations.

I've been here for so long, I can't remember! I always come back because I like the way you write... the way you tell a story. And of course... OG! LOL!

I can't remember how I got here. Something roundabout from the Peevery, I imagine...

I keep coming back because you are damn funny.

Oh who knows how I found you or why I keep coming back at this point.

I just like to keep trying my luck. all the way around.

I can tell you how fake boobs feel. Not from me but from hugging a friend once. If we hadn't been at a funeral, I'd have totally asked her if she minded. It was...not a good thing.

I don't know how I got here either, it's been a while though.

Kat - if I read your comment correctly am I to believe you were feeling up a corpse with fake tits?

At first, I came for the sewing tips, but then I won a contest, so then I became a loyal fan! Also, the tales of woe. Love those tales of woe. Sorry for the Shadenfreud.

I came via some link somewhere - don't really remember where. I guess it's good to know that you are memorable, but the way we got here not so much.

I stay because you make me giggle.

I came her via Secret Agent Josephine, and I stayed for the recipes and of course your fabulous designs (shameless suck-up).
I have de-lurked a couple of times only, but I read daily.

All I can say is, you had me at "lello candy"! That's how long I've been a semi-lurker fan. I keep coming back because, well, I just don't wanna quit you.

Wow, two cheesy movie quotes in one comment!
