Does Jamie Play Santa?

So I ended the year by creating a company calendar. The "Pet of Guaranty 2018" calendar. I collected about 90 photos of various employee pets, and assembled them into this cute little handout. I used clear protectors on front and back, and coil bound the whole thing. I physically produced about 300 of these babies. Everyone was happy and I got a new coil binding machine! :)

Now I play Santa every year, but this year someone else wanted a crack at it...

Read more to see if Jamie played Santa this year.


Of course, Jamie (me) got to play Santa! I took a ton of warm hats and socks to the needy. It was wonderful, and I had a wonderful suit that fit nicely. I didn't get to do Supper with Santa, but that's okay. I still got to finish off the year doing something great for the kids and families of Lane County.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

#Vegasstrong

So this is something important to me, but I held off on saying anything. This blog isn't a political place, and I am not trying to politicize myself through a tragedy. I grew up in Las Vegas, and I got my start in advertising there. I did work for Live Nation, and the Mandalay Bay was one of my favorite haunts. I proposed to my wife on top of the Mandalay Bay at the Foundation Room. Anyways, I worked on some promotional items that are flying off the shelves to help the victims of this senseless tragedy. Click here for a link to that site.

Halloween 2017


So this Halloween I went on down to Mohawk Tavern, and cut a commercial for their Facebook page.

Read more to see my Halloween costume.

I went as Grunkle Stan from Gravity Falls for Halloween. I wanted to go as Dipper, but my daughter called dibs. She even went to the Oregon Vortex and House of Mystery dress as Dipper, so I had to give it to her. I used the plotter to make the marks on my fez and our journals. It was a lot of fun.

It's Photo Booth Season!!! (Plus Country Music Wrap-up)

I am back at Autzen Stadium this year in support of Guaranty's photo boot. We have a new mannequin and will be getting an even newer mannequin soon. So far my favorite mannequin has to be the  one we used at Oregon State University last year. He just looked buffer, and most like a football player. Who would have thought that I would have a preference in mannequins? And how many times can I say mannequin in one post?

I will be with Eggie in the Moshofsky Center before every home game this year. Come by, give Eggie a high five, and make sure you get your picture taken with that day's game jersey. We will print you a copy on the spot. Go Ducks!


There's not much to say about Willamette Country Music Festival that hasn't already been said. I went and worked the photo booth, did my Eggie thing, installed signage and had a great time. I had an epic sick day. I think it was bad fish, a gas leak or something. It was awful.

So Craig is very talented. He took the Eggie photo above. I am high fiving some guy that I see every year at Willamette Country Music Festival. This guy is a huge Eggie fan, but who isn't? I got a ton of hugs and high fives out there. Craig took the concert photo below at a higher resolution, but I am just posting a thumbnail. You can tell there are a ton of people. This event is always well attended. Next year will be the last time this event takes place outside of Brownsville. I guess it will be heading north, closer to Portland. Anyways, have a wonderful September!

Country Crossings Music Festival

I spent August 25 - 30th in Medford at the Country Crossings Music Festival (CXFest). It was super fun, really hot and a lot of hard work. I was doing so much dancing and walking that my shoes melted.

Guaranty arrived on the 25th to set out all of our signage. We setup our marketing materials and fine tuned the displays. I wasn't staying onsite at this festival. I was staying at a local hotel. I go to spend the bulk of my time off (what little there was) at a pool.

There is always a lot that goes into these festivals. I know I have written about this before, so click on the "Country Music" label above if you want to learn more. To the right is a picture of me wading through the crowd by the main stage.


Read more to get a general recap of what was done and I will post links to festival photos.


I spent the festival manning a photo booth and driving traffic to our display. Here is a link to some of the photos that were taken in our photo booth, and here is a link to some general photos from CXFest. To the left is a picture of me with some of my fans. I wear Eggie around to attract the attention of people passing our display. My goal is to get them in to our display, so we can sow the seeds of future RV adventures. We gave away tons of promotional items. Things like LED bracelets, customized cowboy hats and all sorts of other things.
