=) thirsty anyone?

YUP< i'm bragging a bit, and asking for your help =)

Thirst Wine Bar & Bistro chose my husband's design as a finalist in the contest for a new label for their two new house wines. (read more about the contest here )

By Friday, David Billings (my hubby) and three other finalists' designs will be on display at both their River Place and Lake Oswego locations, as well as online at so that people can vote. To vote (here's where I'm asking for your help), register to become a member at Thirst's website. Membership is free. Members can vote once a day until the end of the contest. Ultimately, the design will be chosen by the owners of Thirst, but popular vote could sway their decision!

You can see David's work at his website... Sparkyfirepants =)

Thanks! Please spread the word!! =)

Born Green giveaway! =)

Oh Baby Buy Products has put together a wonderful
Born Green contest! Follow the instructions and enter to win some super cool environmentally friendly products. And if you win... send your winnings on to me! =)

I enjoyed entering this contest because it got me thinking about the green efforts my family has been making. We are doing pretty good, but there is always room for improvement!

Whether peace is to be reached only after unimaginable horrors precipitated by humanity's stubborn clinging to old patterns of behaviour, or is to be embraced now by an act of consultative will, is the choice before all who inhabit the earth.
-Baha'i Faith

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves
- slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.
- Thich Nhat Hahn
