Onesies and calendars and movies, oh my!

cutest box

Today is your lucky day! I have stuff to give away! First up is an adorable onesie from the very kind folks at Miminko Apparel. They bought an ad on my site and then sent this super-cute chocolate-brown onesie to me to give away to one of my readers. Smart marketers, those Miminko people.

Cute lamas! I mean alpacas!

It’s made with 100% certified-organic cotton and it has alpacas on it! Do you know what an alpaca is? I didn’t. It’s sort of like a llama but not. The onesie is size 12-18 months which is NOT Bug’s size or else I might have been tempted to keep it. I am tempted to keep the box though and be cheap and mail out the onesie in a soft envelope. The box is so cool. You should enter to win this contest for the box alone. I’m all about packaging.

So if you’d like to win this onesie just leave me a comment saying so and I will fairly pick somebody as a winner and then send it out to you. (I’ll probably call on my good friend Bethany to pick the winner because she’s very fair and orderly about such things, unlike me. I would probably pick whoever left the funniest comment. That isn’t very fair because I know it’s nearly impossible to be funny under pressure.

CONTEST ENDS SATURDAY AT 7AM.

November Calendar

Next up: Calendars! Download your FREE November pdf here and your FREE December pdf here. I might make a better December calendar later. I’ve been recycling my banner art to make the calendars and I haven’t made my December banner yet so I just threw something else on there. I wasn’t going to put up a December calendar but I figure the holidays are so crazy you’re probably going to need December already. I know I do. Those little boxes are filling up fast.

December Calendar

Regarding those little boxes. I know they are not super big. I wish they were bigger but I can’t fit them and my illos on there if I make them any bigger. So we compromise. I recommend getting a super super fine pen. This one is my favorite. Make sure you get the .28. It’s super super fine and most excellent in quality.

There you go! Happy Free Stuff Day!

Oh! I almost forgot. I also have a new movie for the Bug fans. There’s a joke at the end that I think is hilarious. But you’ll have to click through to vimeo to get my explanation.

Calendar Schmalendar

working on a calendar

Blast it! I was all set to write a post about calendars and two things have gone wrong. First of all I’ve decided I don’t need to make and sell calendars. I can just make a free monthly pdf that people can print out. Free is good. I haven’t given away anything free in a long time.

Second, I took up Bug’s entire nap time talking on the phone and creating these calendars that I’m not going to print after all. Ugh. This is how my time goes. So now I am typing madly, trying to get a post up while she is awake. I gave her a huge supply of beads and pipe cleaners. Hopefully that will be enough to keep her occupied for at least two more paragraphs.

April 2009

I think this is what I will do. A simple 8.5×11 that you can print out on your home computer. Does that work for everyone? Are the squares big enough? Any bigger and I’d have to get rid of my side illos which completely defeats my purpose. I’m sure there is a calendar generator program for just squares and numbers.

But wouldn’t it be cool if I could make this?:

Grand Central Fridge Station

It’s a grand central station fridge calendar! I don’t know about you but I put everything that is important on my refrigerator. I look at it every day. The kitchen is my office now that Bug’s clothes have slowly taken over the closet in her room that used to be my office. I’ve had change out drawers of plastic bags and my sippy cup stash and now they hold paper and computer cables and all my little office odds and ends. You do what you gotta do.

But I don’t think I can produce this grand calendar idea affordably. It would involve too much binding and cutting and glue-sticky stuff. It could be done but right now I don’t have enough capital to invest in such a hair-brained idea.

So pdf’s it is! And now I need to go pick up five-thousand beads off the floor and make a lasagna. It’s another day in the life of SAJ. Tomorrow a giveaway!
