Dive in to another weekly roundup. This week explores big laughs, a chance to win a trip to Mexico, a great way to save lives, holiday markets that support local artists, and more:
Holiday shopping season has begun! Support local artists at Holiday Craft Fairs and Markets in and around Seattle. The wonderful Emerald Palate shares a BIG round-up (sorted by date, thank you!) here. (Seattle & Greater Seattle area)
Youtube Rabbit Hole to go down: The Graham Norton Show (clips). I love the humor and vibe of this show (and the decor colors of the set!) Check out the clips featuring guest actors you like. (Online)
Breathe a bit easier, Gmail users. Like the unsend feature but wish it was a bit longer? You can extend the time for this feature here. I don’t use it often, but always appreciate it when I do, so finding out this feature exists made me happy. Thanks for the tip, Candace! (Online)
Donate blood and you might win a trip to Mexico? Yup. To meet Macklemore in Cabo at the Palm Tree Music Festival. Donate blood between now and Nov 28 at any Bloodworks NW location and you’ll be entered to win this fun trip. (Seattle and many Western Washington Locations) If you’ve never donated blood and have questions about it, feel free to ask me! I can share my experience as a regular donor and connect you with experts if I don’t know the answer. (P.S. THANK YOU to everyone who donates blood or will donate soon. I’ve known two people this month who have needed blood transfusions. You truly are saving lives when you donate.)
