Yup, It’s almost Valentine’s. I know, it’s a holiday you either love to hate or LOVE to LOVE. Even the most jaded of folks will love these Tattly Tattoo Temporary Tattoos though. The Swiss Miss, one of our favorite bloggers and fabulous taste maker, tapped her wonderful artist friends (ie. Julia Rothman’s Love Watch, above) to make temporary tattoos after her daughter got some bum ones- and Tattly was launched! Tattly has some super fun & clever Multi Packs for Valentine’s too- complete with notes to enclose the Tattoos in, and heart stickers to seal the deal. Packs available in 8′s and 24′s, also some single too. I want to give them out to everybody- can’t wait until Coco is old enough to give them out in class!
LovBots Pack of 24 pcs- $25.
Little Besties- 8 pcs Pack- $15.
Love Chain- Set of 2- $5.

Tonight is The President’s State of the Union. The yearly address by the President involves a lot of pomp and circumstance, and is particularly vital this year with Obama’s re-election campaign heating up, but no matter if you’re red or blue- it’s important to watch. Heard about State of the Union Bingo this morning on NPR- and found this one from The Atlantic- hilarious. I’m going to play along while I watch! All sorts of interesting things to learn about here at The General Store’s Blog!

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy New Year Everyone!! It’s Chinese New Year everybody (the lunar New Year came early this year…) and it’s the Year of the Dragon.

Tags: "Annie's Blue Ribbon General Store", thank you notes
Thanks to my grandmother, I’m a huge fan of thank you notes! I’m not always the best at getting them out, but I try to get a little note in the mail as soon as I can! It’s always nice to let friends and family know how much that gift, dinner, or random favor meant to you. And really, it’s just always great to say thanks! That’s why I LOVE these coloring card thank you notes! They’re the perfect way to say thanks, as well as let that inner artist in you shine. Keep these notes handy, you never know when you might need to send one!

If you’re anything like me, you’re anxiously awaiting the South Carolina Primary results. Not as a republican voter, but as a member of the Colbert Nation. Stephen Colbert’s most recent foray into politics has shed a light on the complicated world of campaign finance with the creation of his Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow Super Pac. Sure, he’s not on the ballot in South Carolina and there are no write in candidates in primary elections in South Carolina. He may not have a shot in hell of winning, but it’s still fun to watch him satirize the electoral process. If you’re not a registered South Carolina voter, but still want to honor the Great Man, what better way than with the Stephen Colbert Twitter Feed Poster? Colbert’s complete Twitter ramblings through 2010 are rendered on a 16″x20″ poster, using the negative space to create an image of Colbert and his iconic bald eagle. And the text is completely legible, so you can treat yourself and your friends to a dose of Colbert Truthiness in your home or office.

You know how somethings just make you laugh of loud? This parody of Good Night Moon had me laughing before I even opened the cover. Since I pretty much know this story by heart now I quickly realized it is pretty much the same familiar cadence. Say goodnight to Keith, his drumsticks, his pile of sick, and more. Who references and all make this a funny gift for parents and rockers alike. Goodnight Keith Moon- $10.95.
