quick! put the kettle on, sweep up the crumbs, hide those old news papers, turn that pile of empty pizza boxes into an impromptu side table and for gawd’s sake put a table cloth over it! – we’re having guests!
for the next few weeks while i’m on the road i have some of my fab friends helping out – and i mean FAB. the posts coming up will boggle your mind and twitterpate your heart. there will be enviable collections, vintage treasures, adorable DIY and so much more. i can’t believe i’m so lucky to have such awesomely cool and generous friends and i think you’ll love what they share here.
in other blogtacular news, drawpilgrim.com is following a different format in 2011. i have decided to cut posts down to 3 times a week. i love blogging so much that it distracts me from my actual work, and until i have fully established my empire i can’t afford to dedicate as much time to bloggy pursuits as i want to. (unless you each want to send me $5 for each post you read. do you want to do that? no?)
with 3 posts a week i hope to deliver all killer, no filler stuff to delight your senses. and if you miss me you can always catch me on twitter, bookface and pinterest. and if you want me to return to 5-day a week blogging then i suggest you stop by my store and pick up a few things to fund my return to full time blogging lifestyle haha
happy first of december! christmas is just a couple of weeks away so to get in the spirit i’ve given the site a festive makeover. click through if you’re in a rss reader and tell me what you think. i’m pleased to say the bulk of my christmas shopping is done and the rest i’m hoping to knock off in no time at all. our tree is yet to come though – i have to wait until after a photographer has visited before i get all out crazy-christmas style!
and speaking of christmas, i was honoured to participate in kara haupt’s christmas print project. you can help too by purchasing one of the 4×6 inch prints for $6 or you could go for the whole package of 5 prints for $24. all profits will go the the mercy house, a six-bed maternity home for pregnant girls and staff on the outskirts of nairobi, kenya. share some fab art & the festive spirit! everyone wins.
also, if you’re in the market for an advent calendar, might i remind you about the groovy one i made for toffee magazine? download toffee, print and paste together! could it get any easier?! me thunk snot!
and lastly, a final reminder about my online yard sale. i’ll be closing my yard sale at 12am melbourne time on sunday the 5th. other sellers may still be participating so don’t forget to stop by the ‘yards’ to check out some of the thrifty potential xmas presents on offer:
anyway: seeing as i’ve been sick once a month for the past, er.. six months(!!) i’m going to take this week slow and try and recover properly once and for all! so consider me jamming a stick in this hamster wheel, and taking a mini-break before yard sale/christmas/california holiday frenzy commence! i really don’t want to keep getting sick. its bumming me out and i think my body is getting fed up too. i want to keep this draw! pilgrim, not rest in peace! pilgrim.
so i will return next week, and hopefully you can all buy my yard sale stuff and get me a stay at the mayo clinic, ok? mmmmm mayo. don’t forget to click the link in the lefthand sidebar to checkout the OTHER yard sales linking to mine!
