We Could ALL Use a Good Purge!

It's finally spring, and time for the 2nd installment of my awesome clothing swap, Binge and Purge!  I asked everybody that I know to design the logo.  AND they were all too busy--except for my fabulous boyfriend who drew me an interesting logo in HB on a piece of card; needless to say, I ended up doing it my self.

In keeping with the theme, I also chose an incredibly thin chick to grace the FB event.  Here's what I came up with: and here's the autumn version.

This go round, we'll have the donations go to families in Nigeria.  I can only imagine that Jess' red and black french maid outfit went over really well when the packages were opened :)

That's all I've got for now, the new job keeps me pretty busy.

And these folks too!

American Typewriter, if you will!

I should probably not really say anything about this last pic; I have ONLY branding and logo tattoos on my person--most notably Mister Boh! Here is the WTF moment of this post...
