Good Monday morning all!
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for Fat Matter's lovely letterpress stationary. Their work is gorgeous isn't it?
Please know that in times like these, I don't mean to encourage you to think that you need to buy a bunch of stuff. What I'm hoping to say is that if you're going to buy, say for a birthday or Mother's Day or something, please think about supporting people out there who are making their way by making beautiful things. Each and every one of the buttons over there on my "sponsor" section, represents a real family doing their best to get by, but also doing their best to add something real, mindful and lovely to the world.
I wanted to say too that I really wish that I could send you all a Fat Matter card. In your card I would tell you how much it means to me that you come here. I'd use way too many words to tell you what an uplifting and encouraging place you make this – and how much this girl appreciates and needs that.
It's been a tough weekend, full of doubts and blecky junk that I won't get into – but suffice it to say that it's good, really really good, to have this soft place to fall – to know that so many kind, encouraging people are out there.
Okay, enough sap for now, I just wanted to thank you. Truly.
And now for our Fat Matter giveaway winner: commenter #68, Heather, who said,
"The buttercups. My favorite "weed". If only the weeds in our yard were so pretty.
I love this time of year for so many reasons, but at the top of my list are my naked babies. My one year old son loves running around the outside in all his naked glory.
We came across The Root Children in a thrift shop today. I picked it up, remembering your recommend from Jan Book of Days. Loved it. My daughter played under a blanket for half an hour, pretending to be a root child underground."
Heather, I will email you soon about your prize!
Allong those lines… our new April edition of the Book of Days will be available by Wednesday or Thursday, which means you've only got a couple of days left to enter to win the Mama Kopp giveaway!
Alright, time to pull myself up by the boot straps and climb today's mountains.
I wish you all a wonderful week.
