Back-to-School

Standard

First off, I know the typical back-to-school season is in August, but this Saturday, I’m returning to school. GREER, my favorite store in all this land, will host The Letter Writers Alliance and create homemade Valentines for Monday.

Let me say that again, we’ll make vintage, homemade, handmade Valentines. I’m so ecstatic for this that I’m missing the Kansas game against Iowa State. I mean, how many chances does a gal get to create things with her hands in her favorite paper store along side some fantastic ladies?

I’m sure I’ll sing the praises of this activity after it happens; after all, The Letter Writers Alliance is write up my alley (see what I did there?). They promote the skill of handwritten letters and postage. I cannot tell you the thrill I get when I receive an unexpected envelope in the mail with “KIMMIE” written in the return address box (that’s Kelly, after seeing My Best Friend’s Wedding, we thought the scene from the White Sox bathroom was hysterical). And it’s no secret my happiness level after spending a few hours in the card shop and picking out some favorites to send to people.

I did have a goal in life to create a greeting card…

Quickie: First day of Werk

Standard

Well, it’s finally happened: I’m off the unemployed ranks! After a full week of freelancing last week, I feel perfectly ready to tackle on the full-time realm once again. World, meet Hanna Soltys; Copywriter at Marketing Werks.

Seeing as this is my first job working downtown, I FINALLY get to experience the rush, hustle/bustle and agonizing headaches of commuting downtown. Though thankfully, the 134 bus runs right outside my door, to just outside Marketing Werks. This allows me to enjoy an express bus ride for no more than 20 minutes. That.Is.Stellar.

More to come on this new job as it evolves, but so very happy that my unemployment lasted just this summer. It’s like the first day of school all over again.
