Making The Best Of The Holiday Catalog Season
Man oh man, it’s that time of year again when our mailboxes start getting stuffed with catalogs. Are the holidays really around the corner already? Where did the year go??

Yesterday – don’t ask me why – I found myself flipping through one of those endless catalogs, and actually enjoying myself for a half-hour.

With full credit to the Catalog Favorites catalog, I quote a few of their T-shirt offerings to brighten your day:

“When I have nothing to do, I do it online.”  How true for all of us!

“You’ve gotta hand it to short people… we can’t reach it anyway.”  At 5"4" I can totally relate.

“If it’s true we learn from our mistakes, I will soon be a genius!”  I'm 99% there...

“I could be a morning person if morning happened at Noon.”  Friends call me Night Owl Jenna.

“Wine improves with age, and I improve with wine.”  Doesn't everyone, LOL??

But as an author, my two favorite T-shirt sayings have to be:

“Let’s eat grandma… Let’s eat, grandma.  Commas save lives!”  That's practically my mantra.

And (drum roll please)…my absolute favorite:

“Careful, or you’ll end up in my next novel.”  Okay, I actually *bought* this T-shirt!

I have to say that the trip to the mailbox, which started out as exasperation at all those catalogs, turned into a laugh, and all because of Catalog Favorites.

How about you? Love catalogs? Hate catalogs? Tell me!

  1. I love looking through catalogs. My problem is not getting rid of them immediately upon knowing I'm not going to buy anything. Because...you know...I might. But I end up with a huge pile before throwing them out.

    Love the T-shirt quotes :)


  2. LOL at those t-shirts!

    I have a love/hate relationship with the catalogs. On one hand, I can lose myself in a Pottery Barn catalog, looking at all the pretty rooms and fantasizing about a life where there are no finger-paint hand prints on my perfectly coordinated upholstery. On the other hand, it's a big, old waste of paper and other resources. If I'm in the market for something, I'm going to find and order it online.

    I like catologs, but don't get too many. I love looking at the glossy photographs and dreaming. Enjoyed your t-shirt quotes.: )

    Thanks for the comments! I'm looking forward to wearing my “Careful, or you’ll end up in my next novel” T-shirt. At the very least, as an author, it could be a conversation starter and might sell some books :)

  6. I used to love catalogs! As a kid I'd earmark and star the stuff i wanted in the hopes that my mom or dad would see it and buy it for me for the holidays!


  7. Lets eat grandma is my hands down favorite. Thank you. Funny!
