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.
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. :)
