Hope all of you are having a wonderful fairy tale sort of day! I just wanted to announce some small changes that are taking place here on Tiaras and Bowties. Nothing major...just a few minor tweeks so to say!
I was contacted last night by a company out in Texas who asked me to make some changes to my blog...seems they have the name Smink copywrited. Our conversation was nice, she just asked (well sorta told) me I had to stop using the word 'Smink' cause I was infringing on her copywrite...'fancy shmancy lawyer stuff'.
Now, if you know me...I'm sick of Drama! Trying to live the Drama free life. No More, I tell ya! Leave my little castle outta the drama the Queen Mama can't take anymore. Life's too short!
Our last name is Sminkey... we've always been known as 'The Sminks'. Alexis is well known in school as 'Smink' ...Austin's the 'Little Smink or Sminkster' especially at baseball. Jim's been referred to by quite a few names (but we won't go into that) including Shmoo Smink. Yada Yada Yada. I just like to think that we 'think smink' in our ways of life.
But, instead of fighting it or bitching about it or crying about it. I said Okay! No problem...I think she was a bit suprised by that...guess she doesn't need to contact those big lawyers she told me she had, and even invited me to stop by next time I was in Texas. I don't feel the need to question the copyright (i haven't taken anything from her blog or website) thing... or the fact that it's from another state which as far as I know...'inc' doesn't transfer across state boundaries or anything. I'm just gonna take the high road with my personal little blog chronically my little boring life here.
See crazy ME was a little teeny bit flattered. My little blog, which brings me such pleasure, is apparently causing a big ruckus! Imagine that... I luv to paint, create, and craft...I also like to share so insert blog here! Just gonna go with the flow... slight change to the way I spell and refer to my way of thinking... it's now 'Think Sminke'... pronounce it anyway you want to ... everyone else does... Smink, Sminkeee, Sminkey, Sminkay...whatever floats your boat! It really rhymes with Stinky as my poor kids know all too well.
So to sum it all up, Blog: Tiaras and bowties, no URL change, no biggie. Zibbet Shop. Name change to Think Sminke but no URL change there as well.
Think Sminke is just a way of thinking the Sminkey way... sorta like Think Pink ! We'll still be know as the Smink family... and our crazy twisted way of thinkin and livin will never change! I can garauntee that!
PS. Don't forget to enter for the custom giveaway...it's still open! Leave me a comment here or just become a follower!
I leave you with this, my verse for the day.1 Samuel 16:7"For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart." (ESV)
