Two Days

Tomorrow night, at midnight, I will be shutting down the Evict Lyme FUNdraiser. Check it out, there are lots of great things up for grabs.

You guys are awesome, but we’re not done yet. Bonnie’s having a rough time of it. And there’s still another surgery coming up. If you haven’t donated yet, now is the time.


Raffle Additions!

We’re coming down to the wire here folks, and medical bills aren’t cheap. But you people are awesome. We aren’t there yet, however.

But what we do have are a couple of new additions to the prizes up for grabs!

What better way to trump that hoity toity banker’s fancy Mont Blanc than a pen made from once fired military surplus 50 BMG? Has your pen fought terrorists? I didn’t think so. And then you can crack open a cold one and put your feet up on his mahogany desk.

Or something like that. Just $5 gets you a chance to win this beauty.

Next up, we have a paracord bracelet with matching key chain courtesy CobraBraid

These include the green Lyme disease awareness ribbon so you can be a tactical awareness activist operator. Sporting one of these shows you’re smart, prepared,and aware. Chicks dig that.

$5 for a chance to win.

Please go check out all the other great prizes in the main raffle post.

Here’s what you’ve got to do. Donate over at Bonnie’s place. Not me, you send me money and I will spend it gleefully and you will not get a raffle ticket. Email the paypal receipt to jennifer AT injennifershead DOT com. I will respond to your email. If you do not hear from me within 48 hours, drop me a line either in my comment section or via facebook or any other means you know to get in touch with me. I am checking my spam folder daily just in case. I need you to tell me how many tickets you are buying in which bucket and what your  preferences are. (If you’ve already donated and sent your receipt, you should be getting an email from me soon asking these questions.) Donations can be split however you like. A $100 donation can get you either 10 $10 tickets or 5 $10 and 10 $5 tickets. Just let me know when you send in your receipt. (Non PayPal users please contact me for other arrangements.)

ETA: For the sake of my sanity, I have added a form. Please fill it out. It helps me out a lot.

Questions? Ask below. I’ll do my best. Now, get donating!

Did you know

That when you go in for that annual health screening so generously provided by your employer and they read your blood glucose at 54* that the nice little nurse lady will escort you to the fruit stand and make you eat a banana?

Learn something new everyday.

Also, I measured in at 5’4″ AND A HALF. Without shoes, even. Everything else read in the expected healthy ranges. She said to keep doing whatever it is that I’m doing because it’s working out for me. This calls for more bourbon! And bacon!

Meanwhile, Bonnie is still fighting with idiotic medical bureaucracy idiocy. There’s still time to get in on the Evict Lyme FUNdraiser to help her out.

*Nope, I’m not diabetic either. Apparently I’m just not so sweet in the morning.

Evict Lyme! FUNdraiser Update!

First things first: If you have not received an email from me confirming how many raffle tickets of which level ($5 and $10), I DO NOT have you entered in the raffle.

If you have not heard from me, fill out this form. You do not need to fill it out if you have heard from me already.

I will see it. You won’t get caught up in some spam filter.

New items have been added to the master post. I will be trying to feature everything in a unique post, but you must reference the master post for the most current information. The very same form is being added to that post as well. If you’ve already told me what tickets you want, you do not need to fill out the form. You can if it makes you happy, but you might not get another email from me.

Evict Lyme Big Raffle Post!

At long last, here it is! First off, all of you with blogs or well-followed Facebook pages or anything else that could bring traffic to the cause, please direct your readers here. This is me thanking you in advance.

Alright team, here’s the skinny. Not one, but two surgeons are needed to fix the unhappy uterus issue.

Bad uterus. Lyme is a terrible influence on your behavior.

Surgeons are spendy. And really, who wants a cheap surgeon? Yikes!

Consider this the official launch of the Evict Lyme FUNdraiser! If you donated last month, your donations count for raffle tickets. You just need to let me know how many tickets you are buying from each of the two ticket levels. Trying to keep it as simple as possible, there are two classes of tickets, $5 and $10. Winner gets first pick, second gets second, etc. Please let me know your top three to five choices when you email me your receipt.

Details below the break. This post will remain sticky and be updated for the duration of the FUNdraiser.

Raffle Addition! More Amazing Craftsmanship

We recently had the opportunity to pay a visit to the always delightful Phlegmfatale. As I am sure you already know, she is a woman of impeccable taste particularly in the ways of footwear (If you are one of the lucky ones, you are seeing an example right there in the header image).

What you may not know is that she is also an accomplished jewelry artist. She showed me couple of her pieces that were previously gracing a gallery display.


Let’s take a closer look



And then she sent them home with me!

These are lovely, hand-crafted zipper-pulls, but would look absolutely spectacular used as a pendant on a string of pearls. Truly wearable works of art.

One of these could be yours if you pick up a $5 raffle ticket. Shh! Don’t tell the people that were snatching them up from the gallery display at several times that cost. You might want to pick up a few of those tickets.

More Marvelous Metallurgy!

See? I told you I had more

That dragonfly was way easier to get pictures of than this one.


Much bigger too.


And far more amenable to being shoved in a box so that you can display him at your house if you win.


Don’t really hang him in your garden though, he could rust and he only looks like a voracious predator.

A like I told you with the rose, this is a thing you cannot buy. But you can buy a chance at winning it. Click the plushes and give to help Bonnie Evict Lyme!

$10 gets you a chance at either the rose or the dragonfly.

Many thanks again to Da Tinman.

Raffle Addition!

These actually arrived last Friday as we were headed out of town, so I threw the box in the car and let the lovely crowd we were visiting check them out first hand. I didn’t get the opportunity to take proper pictures until last night.Steel Rose

Da Tinman, who doesn’t have a website or sell these magical creations, has provided this rose made of steel that you could win the opportunity to arm wrestle me for.



I kid. Besides, I have scrawny arms so you’d probably win anyway.

More pics below the break, which you should totally go look at, but first, click the plushes and visit Bonnie. This FUNdraiser is for her.
