It's time for a lot of things!

It's time you knew Angelique Houtcamp. She is the artist behind the Guadalupe above, and is simply magnificent. I adore artists who take traditional tattoo styles and use new subject matter. She has a book. You should look.

It's time for Day of the Dead. That would be officially today, but Tucson has an All Souls Procession downtown on Sunday. A lot of people go to walk in the parade and dress like skeletons which is fun, but I also love the meaning behind remembering loved ones.

It's time for a blog face lift. Oooooh baby, it's like getting a good haircut. It feels lighter, more like you, and it's so nice to have a change. I'm lovin' this, and I feel like it's simple yet representative of my personality.

It's time for me to actually write something. Goddamn self made expectations. I have so many articles I have started and want to finish... but the words seem to run away every time I sit down. To be fair, I haven't been this consistently busy since college finals but I need to organize myself and take the time to finish something. It's good for me.

It's time for me to hook you up with free advertising. It's November already (ZOMG HOLIDAY SEASON!) and I'm thinking you need to advertise your blog or shop on my sidebar asap. Its free this month (duh) and all you need to do is click here and use the code "SAILOR JERRY". Most of the ads are expiring in a day or so, making room for yours. Check back as needed. Medium ads for you, for free. Now GO! Sign up!

Oh, and I love you all.


  1. Ohh I love your new layout! And... Are you blonde?? It looks completely fantastic on you, but now I'm totally going to have to draw you again :)

    Alli xx

  2. Definitely loving the new layout - the concept of it being like a new hair cut is so true! Just, sometimes a much needed refresher! You also look absolutely darling (I hate sounding so pompous using that word but it's appropriate here and I can't think of another word for it! Haha) in your sidebar photo! Luuv it!


  3. I did not get to tell you, but your hair is BEAUTIFUL. Did you say that that's your natural color? I very much like it =D

    Also, I like the new layout of the blog. I agree that the style of traditional tattoos are so cool.

    Have a wicked awesome day and enjoy that Day of the Dead parade! That sounds absolutely awesome!!!

  4. The layout is GORGEOUS Jes!! I've been doing some work on my layout (offline for now), and I totally get what you're saying about it being like a good haircut! It's neat how these extensions of ourselves can be tailored to give out any message we want to get. The layout is the initial message we send out to someone we want to connect with. Gah, I love it.
    Totally hopping on board as a sponsor, too!


  5. Lookin' good around here lady!

  6. The new layout is uh-may-zing! I love it...and you.

  7. Love the new layout and keep writing girl! I believe in you. Heading over for some of that Sailor Jerry goodness! xo

    1. GUH! THANK YOU! I love sitting back and being all proud of myself:)

  9. Ok I tried to use the little e-mail form up there but I think I just sent you my age..? Juicy stuff. Just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and suggesting I advertise on yours, I went for it! I love your blog and it was so nice of you to pop over to mine with a little encouragement, it felt like a high five. So thanks for the generosity, with the free ad AND with the good vibes!
