We're live, baby!

Stephanie Lynn Studio is finally live (see, I really wasn't lying about all those coming soons)! I thought it time to unveal the project I've been pouring my heart and soul into for a while now. Go ahead, don't be shy, take a look:

To celebrate the grand web opening, I am offering free shipping on all orders from now until the end of March. Also, since I love getting goodies, I'll probably throw in some goodies with each order as well. :)

Triathlon training news

Today was day 4 for swimming. Since the pool was busier than last week, B. and I had to share a lane with another swimmer. It definitely helped motivate us to keep swimming rather than stop and hang out like we had been doing. We managed to get in 27 'laps'. Only 13 more and we'll be ready for the triathlon. Of course, we'll have to do 40 'laps' non-stop, but hey, we're working on it!

Healthy Heart Challenge

Did you know that February is National Heart Month? My gym at work is holding the Healthy Heart Challenge. The requirements: complete merely 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise everday this week. As with most of my gym programs, I signed up! The prize (drawn at random): a $50 gift certificate to Dick's Sporting Goods. Just think of all the cute gear I could buy with that sweet prize. Of course, the real prize is just to get my butt motivated. I have a 10K event to run in 7 weeks and I am definitely not ready. So this is the week where I start getting serious about that training program I made for myself.

Now, internet, I am extending the Healthy Heart Challenge to you. That's right. Beginning today and running through Sunday, February 19th, I challenge YOU to get at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise on at least five days this week. The prize (drawn at random): a $20 gift certificate to Stephanie Lynn Studio (opening soon...for real). How do you sign up? At the end of the week, or on your fifth day of exercise (whichever comes first), send an e-mail to: Write 'Healthy Heart Challenge' in the subject line and write "I did it!" in the body text. The winner will be drawn at random from all submissions recieved by midnight, February 19th and will be notified by e-mail. (P.S. This is strictly an honor system y'all, so I expect you all to be honest :).

So, come on, what are you waiting for! Get moving!

The Happily Handmade Giveaway

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you all know about a really cool contest going on now through the month on March. It's called The Happily Handmade Giveaway and I encourage you to check it out. There are a lot of really cool indie designers out there making really great unique stuff: jewelry, clothing, bags, paper products, bath products, etc. Every season a bunch of them get together and offer a contest to promote indie businesses. All you have to do to enter is go to a participating sponsor and follow the instructions for entry. This usually only requires you to sign up for a newsletter. No purchase necessary! It's as simple as that. You could win some really great prizes and find some neat products along the way. For more information, check out:

Please tell anyone you think would be interested about this contest. I think it's a wonderful event that more people should be aware of.


Really, I am almost there...

Whew, what a weekend! While the District braced itself for the snow storm, I sat inside and worked on my webpage. I swear I must have put in a good 24 hours taking pictures, editing pictures, and editing the web page. But all the work paid off. For I am officially almost there. Check back soon for sneak peeks.
