Happy Spring Equinox everyone! The photo above is a prop magazine that was created for The Little Mermaid Jr. Hilarious, eh? The artistic staff all received a copy of the cover which was signed by the artist and all the cast members on the back too. 🙂
- Hilarious: 25 Things I Learned From Opening a Bookstore. Quoted: “A surprising number of people will think you’ve read every book in the store and will keep pulling out volumes and asking you what this one is about. These are the people who leave without buying a book, so it’s time to have some fun. Make up plots.”

- As well, in preparation for my trip to Chicago, I’ve been writing and scheduling a bunch of posts for while I’m away. Nubby Twiglet talks about What Is An Editorial Calendar and Why Do I Need One? and I’m thinking I need to sit down and do some serious blog-planning. (Especially since The Blogcademy Toronto is only two months away!)
- Gala Darling wrote about These 10 Apps Will Change Your Life! I totally agree with Relax Melodies – I downloaded this app and I’ve been sleeping like a baby! My picks for essential apps? Evernote (so you can remember everything!), Saving Grace (an amazing, customizable travel packing app), and for you theatre and musician-types, Virtuoso (an adorable, portable piano app! Great for vocal warm-ups when there’s no piano handy!).
Got any tips about travelling to Chicago? What are your essential apps? Planning on buying a sword soon? Share your thoughts in the comments!
