I won't even speak of the weather BECAUSE IT'S UNSPEAKABLE.

You can't break me, Weather.

You'll never break me.

Everyone knows that the only cure for the cold is wood type. And alcohol. 

Jen and I have been having a debate about the next birthday card. And by debate, I mean she is, like, "I don't care." Doesn't she know the dangers of Not Caring??

ANYWAY, here's the card. BTW, that's a vulture, waiting for you to die.

Just when I thought it was safe to burn my foot-shaped Smartwool socks, Spring decided to retreat.

At least I have feet.

Am I right?? Although, I'd be grateful for stump-shaped Smartwool socks.

I WOULD.

Here's a card:

Oh, and Jen and I chose the cards for The Spring Release!

Is Spring really here?

Not sure...

Let's pretend it is. Let's let me live in a world filled with hope! My obsessive weather-tracking (hourly checking my weather app) has proven to be successful.

It won't be long before smartwool socks are shed and (my) legs are shorn.

Stay tuned...

Here are a couple cards I made instead of penning a suicide note.

As I said goodbye to yet another kitten from our cat ranch,

I thought to myself, "I bet this is exactly how Beyoncé feels when she drops an album." And then I thought, "My skin is so dry."

I wish I could travel back in time... back to the 1970's when there were environmental chambers built into the walls of health club locker rooms... (I think this is a real memory and that I'm not just pasting a false memory on top of a traumatic childhood locker room incident... those topless moms blow-drying their hair... Wait, am I?? Omg... Beep beep boop: Tropical Rainforest?? Yes, please!)

NO MATTER, here's a new card!

My grandpa's battleship was bombed and he had to tread water for 13 hours WHILE he kept his unconscious buddy afloat. That was just like the time in 2009 that I swam out to meet the seal.

SPEAKING OF TREADING WATER.

It's mid-February in Minnesota.

Spruce & Gussy -> 12 Mount Desert St. Bar Harbor, Maine

ANOTHER profile in that special series dedicated to bringing our readers biased reviews of shops that carry our goods.

Alright, put on your mukluks, shove a wedge of chewing tobacky between your cheek and gum, and head Northeast. 
**Weather Update: New England was CRIPPLED by, like, three feet of snow the other day. BUT BAR HARBOR DON'T CARE. They took it like a man. A man who is not wearing his orange jumpsuit.
WHAT?!
When (not IF) I get to Bar Harbor, I will make but one stop: Spruce & Gussy.
Shopping for all of my small-box items will be dreamy...
Look for me, Michelle & Patti.
Look for me and my new friend, Bob Ross.

I shed my layers this week and exposed my sun damaged, yet somehow pale, flesh to anyone unfortunate enough to glance over at me.

Sun was absorbed, golf carts were driven, and books were begun.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Golf carts were driven.

OR to use a term I (maybe) coined:

Wintermission!

I've been enjoying hour after hour of On Hold Music

and eating all of the Holiday Cookies.

Oh, AND setting up a GoFundMe for Tib The Cat. (Donate today to be eligible for one free kitten. Please. I beg of you.)

AND HERE'S A BREAK-UP CARD. I'm a giver.
