On Sunday, I had the burning need to listen to one of my all-time favorite mood enhancing songs ever in the history of my life (Thank you, Steve Perry, I will always remain true to you. And your hair. And your weird stage clothes. And your mom jeans.)
So you can deduce by now, the song was "Don't Stop Believin'" and I just typed in the word "don't" into the iTunes search field, and I'll be damned if a whole list of musical lovelies didn't pop up and I realized: you, my dear, have the makings for the most Awesome Mix Ever.
I'm still workshopping it. I'll let you know later this week how it's holding up. But it's fun. Pick a word. Pop it into the search field. Make a mix.
The best surprise on the mix? Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. Makes me want Dan to grow a mullet and pop open a pair of Schlitz Malt Liquors. (Sorry. Those high school flashbacks hit at the most inopportune moments, don't they?)
In other fun news, a bunch of my former Simple colleagues and contributors have launched a shiny new site called Write. Click. Scrapbook. They are going to carry on the spirit of Simple, and offers lots of tips, ideas, layouts, giveaways—you name it—all in the name of Simple scrapbooking goodness.
