Quote of the Day – The Dastardly Deed

Quote of the Day

Inquisitive and fun-loving Reader: if granted the opportunity to prowl a phantasmagorical underground palace, what would you do first? Would you play hide-and-seek in the armory? Frolic through the painting galleries? Plant your derriere on the throne and issue pretend decrees to invisible courtiers? Or, like Oliver Drybread, would you insist upon touring the castle kitchens?

Quote of the Day – Justin Case

When I came home, I found Qwerty whining in the front hall. He was sad because Mom started taking him to Obedience School today. She told me, right in front of Qwerty, that he is the worst dog in the whole class.

Merch of the Month

I have a habit of turning hobbies into side hustles, so it’s not surprising that many of the designs I create for BumbleBess.com features my hand lettering.

Kindred Spirit

October’s Merch of the Month pick is in honor of our favorite autumn-adoring heroine, Anne Shirley! This was the first product I added to the shop using this style of varied lettering. It’s a fun and free-spirited reminder to embrace the things that make us unique, because those are the traits that help us connect with others.

Quote of the Day – Winnie-the-Pooh

Quote of the Day

Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots. As soon as he saw the Big Boots, Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen, and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw, and spruced himself up as well as he could, so as to look Ready for Anything.

Quote of the Day – Justin Case

Quote of the Day

I wanted to be good at sports and very fast, so I said okay to the white-and-silver sporty sneakers. The rest of today whenever I looked down, I thought some other kid’s feet got stuck on the bottoms of my legs.

Quote of the Day – Liar & Spy

Quote of the Day

My name is Gorges, which is pronounced just like “George” because the S is silent, but of course some kids call me “Jor-Jess” or “Gorgeous.” I don’t much care. There are worst things to be called that Gorgeous, even for a boy.
