1) First and foremost, I'm happy to announce that the winner of the softspoken fringe necklace giveaway is...Margaret of Thousand Flower Farm! If the name sounds familiar, well...that's because she's my mom! Wtf?? Haha, yeah yeah I know what you're thinking, and I don't blame you, but I swear to you, the drawing was one hundred percent random and impartial as always. Still, I have to admit I felt a little funny...so I even took a screenshot of the random number generator as proof of this madness. Anyways, congrats mom! You'll be getting an email from me soon :n D

2) You might have noticed that things look a little different around here. After hours and hours of futzing, tweaking, cursing and weeping quietly into my pillow, I finally figured out how to widen my blog's layout and add a right sidebar. I owe endless thanks to Tieka of Selective Potential for pointing me towards this excellent online tutorial. Thank yoooouuuu!!! And thanks to Blogger Guide for finally explaining the process in steps so simple even I could understand...
I'm still adjusting (and figuring out what to fill me new sidebar up with!) so bear with me. I'd love to hear any suggestions you guys might have, as well as any general feedback on the new look! Also, with all this new space at my fingertips, I'm considering opening up a couple of ad slots, and I'm wondering if that interests anyone? Feel free to email me or just leave a comment. Can't wait to hear from you guys! Woo!
