Episode 22

Tea: I’m drinking Twinings of London’s Orange & Cinnamon Spice herbal tea. This is a subtle rooibos with Vietnamese cinnamon and orange peels that is warming and delicate without overpowering or being too sweet. Thanks to mandypinecone for this one!

Please head over to the KAL finished objects thread to save your spot. There is one (grand) prize that will be drawn from all finished objects, but there’s also a smaller prize that will be drawn from among all participants, whether they finish or not!

Annie Modesitt Fund giveaway

Thank you to all who participated and generously donated to help Annie deal with funeral expenses while she undergoes her fourth (and final) round of chemotherapy this week! A winner has been chosen, so tune in to see if you won 🙂 The winner has to PM me their address so I can get the prize package in the mail while I’m in the US (since Canada Post is currently on strike).
