A new headband for you and women everywhere.

I announced on Facebook and Twitter a few weeks ago that 50% of my sales with Princess Lasertron for the rest of the year will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to honor my friend Jordan’s mother Cora Delmundo who passed away in her battle with breast cancer this month. For the remaining days I decided I’d really rather donate more but I don’t really have the ability without more sales. So for the remainder of the year, I’ve also designed a pink felt flower headband for you and I’m donating ALL of the sales of this headband. One hundred percent. Here are a few photos of it below–Alice is modeling, but it does fit an adult. Smile.

I can send as many of these as I can sell, and I would love to make a huge donation to help those who are touched by the tragedy of breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation offers hope for a cure in our lifetimes by funding leading medical centers who are doing the most innovative research about breast cancer and increasing awareness about breast health and screening. I also love that 91 cents of every dollar spent by the BCRF is used directly for research and awareness–they’re one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. I would love to see them get more support and I would love to send them a check on January 1 with your help.

If you want a headband, contact me with your PayPal e-mail address via e-mail (meg@princesslasertron.com) or comment and I will invoice you for $40, which includes the shipping cost. 100% of your payment will be donated to the amazing, fantastic, passionate people at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and all of those who breast cancer has affected. This headband is cute, it’s wool felt, and if there’s another color you’d rather have I’d be happy to make it! And please do also peruse the things I’m stocking right now in the Princess Lasertron store–50% of those sales will be donated as well for the remainder of 2012.

I hope it makes you feel good to see this felt headband on your dresser or hanging over a lampshade, wherever you keep your special headbands, and when you put it on I hope your heart feels big. When people compliment you when you wear it, I hope you get a chance to them about the important work the BCRF is committed to. I’m doing this to use my talents to form a link with women who feel moved like I do to fight cancer and fund this important research. I can use my gifts to create beauty, maybe inspire you, maybe just make you feel cute sometimes when you go out, and with your help we can send a check to make a big difference for all of the people who are fighting for a cure.

OOTD: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.
