Teacher Appreciation Celebration!

May 11, 2012 at 4:19 am (Events) (, , , , , , , )

This Week is National Teacher Appreciation Week.  Next week, Half Price Books in Humble will share the love and appreciation.

Win a Teacher Appreciation Gift Basket Our hard-working teachers deserve a well-earned break. What better way to start the summer than with a “Pamper Yourself” gift basket.  From Monday, May 14 to Saturday, May 19, use your Educator Discount Card at our HPB Humble store and you can enter to win a wonderful gift basket full of Mary Kay Mani/Pedi products, an Ophelia’s Quote Mug (http://www.etsy.com/shop/OpheliasGypsyCaravan), plus a Summer Surprise Reading Bundle. See store for details.

The Summer Reading Bundle has several titles donated by Half Price Books that should entice you, but I wont give away the surprise! You’ll have to go into the store and see for yourself! But I will let you know that there is a sneak peek of an event to come with an Advanced Reading Copy of Delaney Rhodes’ first book Celtic Storm.

In additon to that, there’s a Scentsy hand foam and catalogue provided by yours truly (akklemm.scentsy.us) to add to all this Pamper Yourself fun.  Teachers are an important part of our lives and crucial members of our community, we want to let them know it!

If you are passionate about giving back to our teachers, contact me at andiklemm@rocketmail.com.  I am constantly brain storming future events and any contributions whether it be donated items or ideas to help make the celebrations more wonderful, are most welcome.

Book Love Art – Ophelia’s Quote Mugs

April 29, 2012 at 2:58 am (The Whim) (, , , , , , )

Previously featured as Book Love Art was the fabulous photography of Joel Robison.  In that post I mentioned Ophelia’s Quote Mugs, and in this post I’d like to share with you Ophelia’s Literary line.  From C.S Lewis to Ray Bradbury, Ophelia’s Quote Mugs combines beautiful art work, meaningful quotes, and the practicality of something in which to drink your coffee or tea.  Priced roughly at $14, they are comparable in price to Starbucks merch, but offer so much more.

And an even cooler feature… the art doesn’t stop on the outside of the cup.  Take a close look at the insides of these:

Book Love Art

April 12, 2012 at 6:37 pm (The Whim) (, , , , , , , )

I have always been a lover of books, and of art.  If you’ve followed my blog for very long at all, you’ve seen lots of Bryan Collins pieces floating around.  I’ve even encouraged the purchase of his bookmarks in a previous post. Its why I am completely obsessed with Ophelia’s Quote Mugs. With that in mind, I’m sure you can only imagine my complete and utter joy when I saw this:

This is the photography handiwork of “Boy Wonder” Joel Robison.  Joel  lives in British Columbia Canada and apparently is self taught, playing with his camera and computer to master the self portrait.  I love his stuff.  He has work available on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/people/boywonder, and I hope everyone who reads this post takes a look at what he has for sale and finds themselves a treat.
