Pride and Blog Features!

I have been a bad blogger.  A bad, bad blogger.  I’m so sorry.  I’ll try to be better.  I blame Twitter for making it difficult to type anything more than 140 characters!

As a gesture of my good intentions, I wanted to share a couple of things with you guys!

First off, NYC Pride.  Yesterday I almost peed myself when I got an email from Kelly at soyoureengayged.com.  Awhile ago, she sent an email out to all of So You’re Engayged’s Featured Vendors, letting us know that they’d have a booth at Pride this year, and inviting us to send business cards and product samples.  I was (obviously) very excited about this.  In addition to sending her some of my samples, I also sent her a stack of my free marriage equality bumper stickers.

Yesterday, she sent me these photos from Pride:

How exciting!!  She said that people really loved the stickers, which makes me very happy.  I wish I could have been there!

On a related note, I’ve been doing a bit of research on the organization(s) we were voting on to receive the donations from the stickers.  I received a tip from someone I trust, which caused me to re-evaluate the way I was researching the organizations.  Long story short, I decided to personally contact all of the organizations via phone, rather than simply by email.

Equality California never called me back, which sucked (I mean, I know they’re busy, but still!).  I was SERIOUSLY impressed, though, with Freedom to Marry.  What an awesome organization!  They offer advice to all the organizations working toward equal rights, so they’re super well connected.  The guy I talked to, Richard, was also really nice and super helpful.  I’ll keep you guys updated on what I find out.

Moving on!

Yesterday I also got an email from Tess at the Six Feet Under blog, who asked to do an interview for her blog.  Of course, I was happy to oblige!  Thanks Tess!  The interview went up today, and there are a few very sweet comments.  It is so flattering to be asked to do interviews.  I’m still shocked that anyone is interested in what I have to say!  ;)

In other news, I’ve finished a few *very* cute projects recently.  Three of them feature dogs!  You know how I love drawing pets, right?  I am excited to share them with you.  :)
