I'm featured in this very awesome Halloween treasury did by my friend Holly. I'm very honored to be in it and am hoping it will hit Etsy's Front Page. Can you help? Go visit and give it some love!

It has come to my attention that my darling Bear might be lonely. I went outside this afternoon to photograph my new shop listings, and came back to find this:

For a bit of explanation, this is Bear (and the bull Toledo) surfing the web in my absence. What was he looking at, you might be asking? How about this??

So, my Bear needs a friend. And it would appear it might need to be a girl. :) We are seeking young, cute female teddy bears about the same size as Bear who would be interested in being Internet Penpals. Bear is not ready to make a big commitment, so having a new roommate might be too much at this time. Bear likes hats, books, and the ocean. Let us know if you know somebody!

Just Watch This!

Loved it! Made my entire night!

Rethinking Shipping...

I'm a die hard ship from the post office person. I always have been. I live within ten minutes walking distance from the post office, and it's a nice, good for me walk, and I usually go a few times a week. Hell, I'd go every day if someone bought something. :)


Last week I went to mail a package (which was Holly's Scarf ). There were two people in line in front of me, one at the counter. This is about normal for our small little p.o., but the line normally moves quite quickly.


the lady at the counter was getting a ton of certified letters, so many that those little slips they give you back, the stack was like 3 inches tall! I stood in like for 40 minutes waiting to send that package.

For the first time I'm leaning more towards starting to ship from home, but I wouldn't even have a clue about how to start.

Anyone who reads this ship from home? Have suggestions for me?

Oh Where I Come From...

As if Outsider's Inn were not enough to make me love the image East Tennessee gets in the larger scope of the world, Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported about little old Knoxville today. It doesn't seem to be on the Countdown website as it was just a little blurb, so here's the Knoxville News Sentinel version:

Man Stuck On Stopping Blue Cow

Apparently someone tried to break into the Knoxville Museum of Art through the air vent shaft, and then when he got stuck, called 911. Brilliant. More so brilliant was the fact that he explained it by launching into some explaination involving being a special agent sent to stop a Russian bomb planted in our museum. Yeah. Thanks for making us look good.

Spain has made my day, for real....

This hasn't hit the American news yet in any scope other than through Talking Points Memo but in Spain today there's a lot of news coverage on McCain. In an interview done for a Spanish radio station (I think), McCain talked at length about various Latin American countries and how he wanted to try to establish relationships with countries that could be our allies. In the ending part of the interview, the reporter asks McCain if he were elected president, would he want to establish relations with Zapatero (the current leader of Spain). McCain then reiterates the fact that he wants to establish relationships with countries that are deserving of our allegiance. The reporter goes back and forth like four times with him, and he continues to talk about Spain as if it were a Latin American country. Finally, the reporter is actually like, I'm talking about Spain, in EUROPE.


As of this point, the only audio available is a Spanish recording of the interview. I listened to it and can, even with my Spanish being what it is, understand the parts at the end where he seems to seriously not know where Spain is. There is a English version of the interview, because you can hear English in parts of it, like McCain talking in the background behind the voice over translation.

I really hope this hits our news, it's making waves in Spanish news today. I don't know when the interview was done, but the coverage is today's, so I'm hopeful it's worth picking up on. And knowing the way some news coverage LOVES McCain, I'm really hopeful.

Guess what is mostly black and has three columns?

My blog has moved up into the world of three columns! I'm so freakin excited!!! I've been sad over the left hand space on my blog for a loooonnnng time, and I keep hoping that Blogger will release a template that uses that extra space. Well, they haven't.

Finally deciding to see if I could solve my issues on my own, I went out and started looking to see if I was alone in my desires. Turns out I'm far from not alone, and I found Blogger Buster, this amazing little article that told me exactly how to add a third column to my blog using HTML editing! How exciting!

So, now I'm rolling in third column status. The only bad thing about this is I lost all the blogs on my 'I Like To Read' list (now heading up my left hand column), so if you're reading me and you think I used to read you but have forgotten your blog address (I know I lost several funny blogs in this process) PLEASE comment. Or just comment anyway. I love blogs, and have a whole column with room for them now!

This made my entire day...
