Tah Dah!! WELCOME!! I am excited to introduce you to my new website!! *Jen jumping up and down with big smile*
It was a goal of mine to move my blog over to my own website address with my own logo…so here she is :)! What do you think?!
Since I abandoned my usual routine of patisserie shop hopping, café exploring and most socializing in general these past two weeks to get this little time-vacuum up and running, I don’t have my usual repertoire of stories with which to regale my devote audience. And I am certain you don’t want to read about how the sun light changes in my room from morning to early afternoon or how I chose between 30 degrees or 40 degrees on the washing machine when I have a dirty pile of socks to tend to or how I have noticed a little mildew build-up in my shower (which I plan to take care of Thursday!). Yeah, pretty sure you don’t want to read about any of that…just call me clairvoyant.
HOWEVER, you may want to help me! In fact this morning in the shower, before I was distracted by the mildew, I was thinking how the cute camel in my new logo needs a name! I started to brainstorm (cuz I do my best thinking in the shower), and decided that instead of going at this grand task alone, I would ask my friends and family for their ideas. Hmmm, maybe I could have a contest? Of course! Yes! A CONTEST TO NAME THE CAMEL! What a great way to kick-off my new website (and more importantly get a few emails from someone other than Pottery Barn and Groupon).
Rest assured, there will be a PRIZE!
How to participate:
1) Send me as many submissions as you would like. You can post them in the comments or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (<- also found under the “Contact Me” page). I am a sucker for a good story…so if you have a compelling reason why you chose a particular camel name, please include it.
2) Submit your entries by midnight Paris time on Tuesday, January 31st. I will chose my favorite camel name on Wednesday, Feb 1.
3) Make sure you have your name with the submission…not just the camel name. I sure can’t send a prize to “anonymous.”
4) I kinda feel like the camel is a girl. This thought really shouldn’t be a bullet point under “How to Participate”, but I am leaving it as one anyway.
There you go! Eazy Peazy! So go put on your creativity cap and get me some emails!! The winning entry will receive a nice Parisien present (gender appropriate, of course…and not a baguette).
Bon Chance! *
