I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Girl-Power Giveaway

Girl-Power Giveaway

Who out there needs incentive to subscribe to my website?  Hmm, I thought you might. Well, since I’m moving out of this horrible neighborhood in about a month, I started taking inventory of my stuff. Aaaaand…there’s a lot of it. Stuff that is. You know…shit, junk, crap…superfluous knick-knacks. The bottom line is that I need to downsize. And I’m starting with my books. So here is my girl-power book giveaway. In this package, we have Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin, Fresh Off The Boat by Melissa De La Cruz, and You Give Love A Bad Name: Timeless Poems of Tainted Love From the Pop Hit of the 70s and 80s. By the way…if you have a girlfriend who is amidst a breakup, this latter book makes a GREAT gift. (In fact…How do you think I got it?)

So, “How do I win such a cool package?” you may be asking? First, you need to be a subscriber to my blog. Just click on the RSS Feedburner orange logo thing at the top and choose the reader that best suits you. Then, comment on this post. In a week, I’ll write down all the names of the commenters and put them in a hat. Sean will video me pulling the name out of a hat just so you know that I’m doing everything kosher. And that’s all.  Dude, seriously? Who wouldn’t want free books? Especially now that it’s getting so cold out!

    Good post, I like your writing style! I’ve added http://colleenkatana.com/ to my feed reader, and will be reading your posts from now on. Just a quick question - did you design your header image yourself, or have it done professionally? If you had it done by a professional, who was it?

  2. Missy Says:

    You know I love you. Your blogs have been on my feed for what? 2 years now? :-)

    Do i win?? You know I need extra ways to keep my mind off reality at the moment. pick me! pick me!

    John the Pirate - Yarrrr! back at ya! My friend Lynne HAS to check out your pirate hat site…she’s slightly obsessed with all things pirate.

    Thanks for checking out the site and of course, WELCOME. Out of curiosity, how did you find this modest little site of mine?

    As for the header, I designed it with a thumbnail sketch, but my boyfriend, Sean Murphy, is a comic book artist with DC Comics. He did the clean drawing. You can check out more of his stuff here: http://www.seangordonmurphy.com

    Missy -
    Well, hello lady. The “picking” will be totally blind and done next Monday. I DO know how much you need to keep your mind off reality…even if you don’t win, I’ll send you some sort of chocolaty care package. =0)
