I experienced a concern making use of standard URL in regards to our registry, and Melissa swooped in like a perfectly gracious godmother and fixed it right-up.

Hooray! Registered!

We’d currently generally determined that people might have heaps of moss on the tables when we planned to, however your reassurance actually knocked it out with the playground. Here’s a glimpse at my #mossfeelings inspiry board!

She launched Megan to a moss situation that could need to be sprayed with liquid to be stored live. Reader, it smelled like a pile of lifeless fish. Equipped with this information, we are going to be going with some beautiful preserved reindeer moss as an alternative, which will ben’t actually a moss anyway but undoubtedly doesn’t need becoming dampened and defintely won’t be reeking like week-old mackerel. #blessed

I am reminding my self getting FUN with this specific.

I’d already been fearing it because oh god every little thing, but once I began managing it like an Autostraddle submission from another author, I happened to be capable relax the bang out and carry out anything i am averagely effective in. UNTIL about seven hrs into tinkering and researching, when I discovered any particular one in the paragraphs I really, actually liked ended up being an uncredited excerpt from a recently available guide on rites of passing. Now it seems odd to add it without crediting the writer, although section is not constructed into the script the manner in which you would a quote or a reading, so I hit a wall. I can not work out how to operate in credit, or if perhaps I’m only hung-up on crediting considering my personal distinctive line of work, or if perhaps I should just rewrite the complete section, or otherwise otherwise.
