Comment to be added, and we'll see what happens. :D

Also, check out these awesome websites:
Hey, Don't Judge Me
It's a really awesome website that has some amazing, well-written, and just all-around fun recaps of some TV shows (such as Walking Dead, Hoarders, Glee, Southland) and movies (such as Sherlock Holmes, Thor, X-Men, Captain America). Seriously, it's a great site. There's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't read everything there.

Penpal of the Week
Another really awesome website, managed by a sweet lady named Julie. It's dedicated (mostly) to penpals, letter writing, stationery, and all the cool things in between. If you're looking for a penpal, this is the place to go! There are penpal interviews, penpal ads, mail art, and quirk lists (those are always so interesting to read!). So check it out!

La Papierre
And this is the Etsy shop for Miss Julie. I have several sets of her stationery (Swirly Ivy, Chirp, and this great Octopus set, which seems to have been discontinued), and it's just fantastic!

It's a Giveaway Post!

Polyrillustration’s fourth birthday/100 FB-likes Moleskine giveaway!

So, I want to thank all of you lovely peeps for supporting me through thick, thin and just plain ol’ crazy. This October also marks the fourth year of Polyrillustration. This week I hit 106 likes on my Facebook page too, which is absolutely bloody fantastic, so I thought I’d do a giveaway to celebrate!

I do love to draw silly cartoons for people, but they do say that the best gifts are useful ones. So, a useful giveaway it is! Here, you have:

- One Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook

- Two Moleskine Pocket-sized Notebooks (in red, my favourite colour)

- One Set of Moleskine Van Gogh Memo-Pockets (ditto)

- One Moleskine-brand Pen

- Five Greetings Cards featuring my artwork, one of each design (yeah, had to satisfy my ego somehow)

That’s approximately £40 of awesome, there, folks.

So, what can you do to win? Do one or more of the following.

ONE: Follow (via Google FriendConnect, see it in the sidebar)

TWO: Promote the giveaway in your own (non-Tumblr) blog.

THREE: Follow me on Tumblr (polyrillustration) and reblog this giveaway post.

FOUR: Promote the giveaway on Twitter.

FIVE: Like my Facebook page (if you haven’t already) and share the giveaway post on your own wall. Make sure your share is set to Public, or else there’ll be a chance I can’t see it.

The more you do, the more you have a chance of winning, however each method will only be counted once!

Let me know, either by e-mail (elizabeth[at] or on the Polyrillustration blog post which ones you’ve done and what your usernames are.

The closing date is 22nd October, 2012, so you have a month to enter.

Good luck!

Dear Co-Worker (I'm not 100% sure which one of you it is):

No love EVER,

Dear Internet Peoples:

If you are trying to say you were crying really hard, you need to use the word "bawling" not "balling."

Thank you.
