i haven't had any issue - at all - sending out the Daily Dose of Handmade newsletters a couple of times a week.  i love promoting other people and seeing the increase in traffic that they get!  after much thinking however, i thought that perhaps i should aim that newsletter theory to my own ventures and i actually sent out a newsletter to some of my most recent buyers.  promoting my inclusion in the Daily Dose Summer Wedding Gift Guide, i put together a newsletter and after hours of deliberation, sent it out.  now i'm not sure if anything will come out of it, but i had to try!

(if you are looking for a discount - the Daily Dose has my discount code for this promotion!  just sayin'.)


jessie's girl.

>> Sunday, May 6, 2012

i was listening to my regular morning radio station last week and, like a gift from the gods, they had rick springfield on.  sigh.   (thank you, dean blundell)  touted as one of the greatest songs of all time, jessie's girl is undisputably mr. springfield's biggest hit and is the penultimate anthem of unrequited love.

legend has it that rick attended a stained glass class (an artsy rocker dude?  nice!) with his friend gary and gary's girlfriend.  poor rick had it bad for gary's girl and wrote the song.  of course, "gary" doesn't have the exact same ring as "jessie", and rick is probably glad he didn't use his friend's actual moniker.  apparently, oprah attempted to track down gary's girlfriend (rick has stated that he did not remember her name) but to no avail.  so, probably to this day, gary's girl doesn't even know that she was the inspiration behind the classic.  but then again, doesn't that just make the song better?
