The Anti Treasury – A Thousand Words

September 18, 2009 separator Uncategorized

When I went to get my tattoo, there was a sign on the wall that said, “A picture is worth a thousand words, so why the f*** would you get words?” I slunk sheepishly past that sign and down a painfully short hallway to get my one. little. word. Nowhere close to the thousand it would take to compensate for an actual picture.
I remember trying to decide if I was really lame right before my new buddy Jon started mercilessly torturing me and concluded with, “Nah – I like words.”

That’s why you get a bunch of words in all sorts of creative ways for this week’s treasury. *One of the Anti-Treasury featured shops is going to be next week’s handmade feature and giveaway. Any guesses? Anybody?

  1. I LOVE word tattoos, especially on the wrist! I haven’t figured out the right word for me though. The tattoo artists probably just have more fun doing images 🙂
    Cute word crafts to pair with your independence!

  2. I personally love words that paint eloquent pictures. I find it quite moving, actually. 🙂

    P.S. I guess Queen Bee Jewels…am I right, am I right?
