OH HAI, MILITANT BAKER HERE...

It is SO fun to see yourself all over communities that you love. I won't lie, it's super exciting.
I would love to share a few places you can find me other than here at my dot com.



Amy and I are self-love besties and I poured my heart out into this little article (that's a lie... it's long) on her blog that's featured today. I was wondering if anyone would even bother reading it and I was so touched to read the heartfelt comments below it. It's examples like this that make me even more devoted to what I do.

It is SO FLATTERING TO SEE AN ILLUSTRATION OF YOURSELF. Allie is fucking rad and I am so glad I ran into her on teh webs. I want to commission her to do another portrait once I have dollars again. Mark my words, she will become the next popular blogger gal portrait artist and everyone will want one. She also drew Rachele and it's sass-ay. She's all "I don't know if I'm good enough... blah blah blah" and I was all "Girrrrrl, get your ass drawin'!". Er, something like that. Stop by and show her love. Maybe even order a picture from her. I bet she'll hook you up.


Speaking of Rachele, I LOOOOOOVE her link up. I'd be a liar if I said I didn't look forward to the next one each week.


I was so flattered when Liora asked me to take some portraits of her. Then I was even more flattered when I saw one of the pictures on her about me. Rock on.

Thanks for sharing your personal space with me ladies. I'm honored, for realz.

And now,
