Greetings from Florida!

I bet you are wondering why I don't design postcards for a living now, aren't you?

Hello, everyone! I am visiting my family in Florida, so I’m taking a short break from all the cutting and pasting. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks, though… probably with lots of newly remembered childhood stories. Hope you’re all having a fun Spring Break! If you’re not on Spring Break, I hope you’re having a fun little Spring Break in your heart.


By the way, I’m participating in Munch Madness over at Knuckle Salad, so if you love snacks and filling out brackets, you might want to check it out!

  1. Typically at this time of the year, I would be ‘jealous’, but we’ve had such a splendid winter, here in wisconsin, (WAAAAY above average!) that all I have to say is, “Whatch out for the gators baby!” ENJOY :) !

    1. Haha! I [SPOILERS!] grew up mainly in Florida, so it’s less of a destination spot for me and more of a return of lizards breathing hotly on my neck, giant bugs flying in my face, and plague-like mating seasons of creatures like land crabs and locusts. Here’s a picture of me and a giant grasshopper from a visit last year:

      and one of my daughter poking at one

      1. OMG! Land of the giants! My mom lives in florida ( just south of orland ) I don’t recall EVER seeing one that big, wow! I do say though, those giant beetles have caught me off guard a time or two! Your little girl is sweet :) Have a good visit! Thanks for the pics!

          1. lol! or you might need therapy! then again I’ve heard plenty things about dipping in chocolate ;) Course they’d have to charge a bit more for the gourmet big daddy version! yum-yum??!

  2. Cannot deal with bugs of that size. Ew.
    Finding it humorours that even your “Taking a break from cutting and pasting” involves “cutting and pasting” ! Have a great time!

  3. OMG, I’m in a family of 5 girls as well, and the middlest sister in our family lives in Florida! I thought I was reading her blog in a parallel universe or something … :)

      1. I also wanted to compliment the palmetto bug. Nothing says Real Florida like those fuckers (although, growing up, they were just “roaches” until I learned that the rest of the country referred to roaches as something much less terrifying).

  4. It appears to me that this site doesnt download in a Motorola Droid. Are other people getting the same problem? I enjoy this webpage and dont want to have to skip it whenever Im away from my computer.
