Happy Stress Awareness Day, you sexy people. Make sure you take care of yourself today! Whether that means taking a mental health day, taking yourself out for lunch, or drinking pink wine in a bubble bath. I hope you take some time to relax today. Leave any tips for relaxing in the comments!

And yes, it’s Wednesday! That means that it’s time for the weekly photo contest. Today, I’m asking you to take a picture of something fun. Sometime today, take a picture and upload it to social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram are all fine). Be sure to tag me in it, so I definitely see it, and #uncustomaryart. At the end of the day, I will pick my favorite, e-mail you for your snail mail address, and you’ll get a little envelope in the mail from me! It’s pretty simple. (And yes, it’s open to non-US people.)
