The Lucky Road

I dont know how I ended up vending at two fabulous events in a row, but I sure did! I'll be at Medina's table, along with some of Salome's Suitcase. (although we mostly are not vending together as a collective this time)

Im going to have to think of something fun to wear! Maybe my new black rayon Fluffie Rufflie Pantaloons! THE most comfortable things to wear on the planet!
See you there!

I and many of Salome's Suitcase will be vending at Sigil!
This is going to be an amazing event!
And Salome's Suitcase's beloved Rose Harden will be performing as well!
Such fabulous entertainment!
This will surely get you in the Halloween spirit if you are not there yet!

R.I.P September - Three Days Left!

Woah! September has simply been insane. Mercury Retrograde - especially hard on Geminis this month (yours truly) - and everything that can and would go wrong has done its best to do so despite my best efforts!

Mechanical difficulties
Communication problems
Near death for a family member
travel issues

Good God - but its almost over and I cant wait!!!!!

But so will my Sale be as well!
Three more days to take advantage of having something made at 15% off!!!!!!
Three more days to grab something off my Etsy shop!

The Sale has been an ASTOUNDING success and I thank you all! So now its nose to the grindstone and get your things to you asap!

So September has had its ups and downs, and the downs were dramatic as were the ups!
Halloween is coming and I'm so into it! I'm going to go break out my box of Halloween decorations soon and deck the halls! Maybe its time for new strings of lights!

Seeking Interns

I'm looking for an intern or two. This will be an unpaid gig to start. If you can get up to speed and show me that you mean business, it could turn into a paid position. In exchange for slave labor, I will buy you lunch, force you to hone your skills, give you some industry dirt, and stuff they don't teach you in school. Sometimes college credit can be arranged. You need to live in or around San Francisco - I'm very close to Bart in the heart of the Mission and on a major bus line.

email me at

Resume not required, but be prepared to show me examples of your work, have character references if I do not personally know you, and explain briefly who you are and why you would want to work for me.

Pre Sale Trauma

I got it in my head that I should have a sale. And I have had one or two before with good results, but it isn't something that I do too often. This time, I thought I would go for one of those fancy emails that actually make you want to look at the ad. And I thought that by NOW I should have all this computer stuff down and this thing would be a snap. little beloved emac is just too old now to handle much of that fancy computin that was so easy back in its day. God. We all get old. But its hard to watch. And to think that I was actually afraid to touch it when I bought it. Now I'm afraid it might have a heart attack.

So it took me a long time to make my fancy little email, but I think it looks kind of cool. And I'm going to launch my sale tomorrow (Friday) - so if anyone is reading this, and wants to sign up to be on my email list, you can do it here on my blog and I can send you updates - more stuff to clog up your inbox. But at least I'll try to make it fun to read. (or you can come here).

It wont take me the better part of a week to figure it out next time either. And maybe my new computer will magically manifest itself soon. Oh please, don't die little emac! We have been through so much together and I still need you!

Sale starts tomorrow! I'll be cranking out work this weekend and still running to catch up! But its a good run and it keeps me out of trouble!

One of these days I will have to update my blog and make it fresh and sparkly, but that is going to have to wait for a while.
