This morning I performed my Wifely Duty, and you can just stop that snickering right now because what you are thinking of is not even in the marriage vows, or at least not the ones I vowed. What I vowed is to continue to be Paul's wife in sickness as well as in health, so when he woke up making babyish groany "I have a perfectly ordinary headcold but I'm acting more like it's the end stages of terminal cancer" sounds, I brought him Dayquil and water in bed instead of buying him a one-way ticket for Bucking Fabyville. I rewarded my devotion with a slice of cake in a size known as "Have a little CAKE, why don't you."
Today is our third CPSIA giveaway. (Here's the first and the second.) Charming Maeve is going to give away THREE prizes, one baby shirt of the winner's choice (I THINK my favorite is "One state, two state, red state, blue state," but it's a tough call) to each of THREE (U.S.) winners, so that TRIPLES your chance of winning. To enter, leave a comment on this post by Monday, February 2, 2009, 4:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time, and I'll choose (THREE) random winners.
For all of us who DON'T win, Charming Maeve is offering free U.S. shipping on all tees, including women's tees (also available in my favorite one state two state version). She warns that she has to manually update inventory, and she'll try to keep up but it's possible there will be Disappointments if the orders come in quickly. And once CPSIA takes affect on February 10th, she won't be able to sell the baby shirts anymore, so move fast.
There is still room in the schedule for a few more giveways, so if you're an artist/crafter affected by CPSIA or wanting to show support for those affected by CPSIA, email me at swistle at gmail dot com and let me know what you'd like to give away. Don't be intimidated by the awesomeness of the prizes so far. The prize can be tiny. I'll handle the giveaway here, and then let you know who to mail the cool swag to.
