The first paper-person clinging to my fingers as I draw them will get their choice of either some smashing earrings from Plume

a perfectly painted stone (i hear rumors from her that it might be an owl!!!!)
from the stunning UmberDovely
(writer, photographer, painter, textile queen, and bestie extrodinare)
(plus, they are both annoyingly beautiful)
i could go on and on.
(she has a great etsy shop too, if you're looking for handmade journals or gentle jewels)
Susie, I'll let you know what you've won via email and get it shipped out!
I'm sorry, yaw ouddtt.
No but seriously,
I was really impressed with the quality of your feedback. It not only made me feel as though what I do here (though totally started selfishly as an outlet for me) is meaningful to some of you, but it was also really fun to hear about the books and drinks you find most interesting.
I absolute write in order to connect my human existence with others, so if you find a resonating thread, I hope you act on it and send me an email or comment.
Because we all need to know that we are not alone.
It's kind of my tangent, my tirade, my mantra...

You need people.
You need friends.
You need love.
