    Including The Period Store was in poor taste. I expect better of your blog.

  • Jhaneel says:

    Shauna, get over yourself. Are periods not a natural part of life? Or are they just one more of those things that women can never talk about in the endless aim to be project a perfect, sterilized and unrealistic image?
    Be open to the possibility that even those things you don’t agree with can still be valid.

    Shauna, hope you enjoyed you’re stay in the modern society while it lasted, but, yeah… um, have a safe journey back home to the dark ages.

    Jhaneel, just because you think it’s right doesn’t make it so. I wholly expected the comment, ‘get over yourself.’ Trite and overused. I never cease to be amazed at how crude people have become. It’s not that women can’t talk about such things, it’s that they should choose not to. People should choose not to. You may continue to flow through the gutters of life. Enjoy the ride.

    I think the The Period Store addition is in poor taste, but I recognize that other people might not have the same view. I am grateful Jordan selected one of the less jarring visuals for her post. Blood-themed food of any kind makes me gag.

    It’d be nice if the other readers allowed for differing opinions without stooping to rudeness.

    I love this little series you do.

    It was nice seeing you and your family last Friday at Paul’s opening. Did you see the little post I did on it?

    Warmly,
    Jen

    Okay, The Period Store is awesome! This is the first I’m learning of it and my mind has been blown!

    Let’s remember this is Jordan’s blog and therefore can post whatever she’d like. Although I was not bothered in the least by the Period Store entry (Those little crowns are super fun! Great idea for stagettes or baby showers) I can also understand that it could make others uncomfortable. Everyone has a choice to click through to the source page. If one is uncomfortable with the idea of public discourse about menstruation and chose to click through anyway to a post that was clearly labelled “menstruation themed party”, one cannot get upset with Jordan posting a link to a styled celebration she thinks interesting.

    That being said, all of today’s ideas are just lovely. Thanks for sharing Jordan!

    Those girl talk headbands would be awesome for a slumber party! They’ll look nice for photo booth props too!

  • Arctic Animal paper fans are kool :). They look very cute.

  • B says:

    Periods are in poor taste? Yeah, tell that to whoever or whatever stuck us with them once a month! Am I right?

  • The Girl Talk headbands would be great fun for a sweet sixteen party!

  • Not gonna touch the period topic, though I am somewhat interested in the Period Store, which I hadn’t been to before. However, I really like the other stuff, especially those cute arctic animal fans! Just imagine fanning yourself with a polar bear. Too cute!
