CREATE your own FATE...

Hey Hip Hoppers!  Thursday came SUPER fast this week, didn't it?

Well, that's a GOOD thing because I've been really excited to play with some of the new releases at UNITY ever since they all have been popping up LIVE on the website for preorder and for sale!  Did you see the HUGE offer going on?

Basically, we released a TON-and I mean A. TON.  of NEW RUBBER last week, most of them available as PRE-ORDERS to be shipped the week after CHA (around Feb. 7th, I believe).   BUT....BUT!!!!  IF you place the order as a pre-order?   Unity is honoring FREE SHIPPING through the month of January AND for these pre-ordered items as well!  That is a HUGE savings!  Can you believe it?

One of my fave new Co-Brands with UNITY is the lovely and talented (and I mean CRAZY talented!) Marah Johnson!   I couldn't wait to ink up this awesome circle/frame and sentiment from her MOXIE set:

fate

[feyt] noun, verb, fat·ed, fat·ing.
–noun
1.
something that unavoidably befalls a person; fortune; lot: Itis always his fate to be left behind.
2.
the universal principle or ultimate agency by which the orderof things is presumably prescribed; the decreed cause ofevents; time: Fate decreed that they would never meetagain.
3.
that which is inevitably predetermined; destiny: Death is ourineluctable fate.
4.
a prophetic declaration of what must be: The oraclepronounced their fate.
5.
death, destruction, or ruin.
6.
the Fates, Classical Mythology the three goddesses ofdestiny, known to the Greeks as the Moerae and to theRomans as the Parcae.


I just had to throw that in there because I really LOVE the idea of Fate and Destiny...and how we can create it just as much as it's already 'out there' for us.  That feeling gives me peace, gives me hope, and really makes me appreciate this little adventure called LIFE.

Check out this week's Hip Hop sketch challenge, too!  It's what I used on today's card:

Well, that's it for me today, but make sure to stop by the UNITY BLOG and start there to see what else Ang has up her sleeve ;)   Your next stop from here is my lovely friend Jimmi!

Until tomorrow, folks!
