Greetings from sunny Florida! I’m here attending the American Copy Editors Society annual conference, and it is so good! Where else can you find sessions like, “Word by Word, the Secret Life of Dictionaries’ Reading”? How about, “Faking Extroversion as an Introvert”? Yes, I’m in heaven. Although the Florida sun is pretty brutal on me considering I get a sun burn just thinking about direct sunlight. The weather is a nice change from the foot of snow we got in Maryland two weeks ago, though, so I can’t say I’m complaining about that.
What I’ve Been Up To
My March Pretty Handy Girl contributor post went up and shows you how you can make over an old canvas and turn it into this cutie! Check out the full post here. 🙂 Owl tapestry can be found here (affiliate link!)
If you’ve been following along with my posts for the last few weeks, you know that I’ve also been working on a $100 Room Challenge laundry nook makeover. I’ve shared four updates and will share the final space next week.
Make sure to check back next week for the pics of the final space!
Also, friendly reminder that my charity of the month for March is Physicians for Reproductive Health! (Check out my February charity, the Humane Rescue Alliance, here.) I’ll be donating a quarter of my monthly affiliate earnings to a different charity each month this year. If you’d like to help me raise money at no extra cost to you, all you have to do is make sure to click my Amazon link before doing your Amazon shopping! It will put a cookie in your browser with a tracking ID, and I’ll earn between 4 and 6 percent of your total sale at no extra cost to you.

-I just finished up Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life by Reducing Waste. It was good, albeit a bit on the extreme side. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re in to that sort of thing, but you might end up feeling like a terrible Earth hater for some for your habits. I listened via Audible, which is the only way I can fit in most of my reading these days! And good news, Amazon (which owns Audible) is running a nice promotion for Audible right now. If you sign up here, you can get two free audiobooks.
