The article about my business came out in my local newspaper. My Mom bought several copies of the paper to hand out to relatives and friends (a typical proud mama :-)! Here is a link to the article that is also on the newspaper's website. I hope you can read it without getting an account at the website.

There were a couple of typos, but overall I am pleased with the article. It was a fabulous experience to be interviewed and featured!

It's okay to admit that you had a big time crush on Rick Springfield back in the day! Who doesn't remember (and love!) "Jessie's Girl"??? RS has put out a few albums since then but his newest CD is pretty awesome. As I was visiting my friends at My Space one weekend, I visited Rick's My Space page (he is my friend after all :-) I discovered he had a new CD. After listening to a few rockin' songs, I decided I needed to own the CD so I clicked over to Amazon to order it. "What's Victoria's Secret" reminds me of "Jessie's Girl" and took me back to my teenage years in the fun 1980's! I owned all of his albums back then and my Aunt Linda took me to a RS concert at Reunion Arena in Dallas when I was around 14 and it was so awesome. Many of the new songs are very "today" and any RS fan will love the CD. My teenage daughter added the entire CD to her MP3 so I guess it has the teenage seal of approval! BTW, that man is still lookin' pretty good! I saw him performing a couple of new songs live on Good Morning America and all the girls were still acting crazy over him!

Still lookin' good? I rest my case, lol!

New Halloween merchandise has arrived at my Etsy boutique and my website:

I know there are lots of Presidential election polls right now but I have added my own to my blog (top right corner). Please vote for your favorite candidate on my blog and please make sure that you are registered to vote...I think this will be a very close election this year! Here are some links to some fun election related merchandise. I got these links from a fun website called Daily Candy.

I'm off to lunch with my Mom. Have a fabulous day!
