“There are times for falling apart, and there are times for getting’ funky. This is one of them funky times. So what’s it gonna be?”–Eddie Griffin, Undercover Brother

Happy Friday readers!
So I’ve received a *ton* of mail bombs this week, but as you know, haven’t had much downtime to get to it. So instead of answering one mail bomb, I’ve decided that the ‘terns and I will put our noses to the grindstone, and deliver you twice the mail bomb fabulousness next week!
In the meantime, I wanted to alert you to a very cool, funky online jewelry find called Wounded Heart Designs…
