Jesus Hates Your Mohawk

 Of all the things about you He hates, he hates your mohawk most.


Snow day

I was unable to go to Market yesterday due to the insane amount of snow that fell in the area early Sunday morning. So, I spent the day cleaning, baking cookies (Oatmeal, chocolate chip, toffee chip, coconut & pecan cookies) and catching up on sleep. It was nice, but I really wanted to go to Market. I only have one week left in the season, so I hope I am able to go next Sunday.

A couple of positive things happened to make up for being stuck at home. I got a call from the Art Center wanting more bowls. It looks like they have sold 18 since I brought them in before Thanksgiving.  Also, I passed my etsy goal for the year. I had been hoping to get to 225, and I hit 226 on Saturday. Also I got a spot on the front page yesterday.  Which was really cool.


Just listed

The sun finally came out yesterday and I was able to go and retake some graffiti photos. The first batch came out too dark. These days it seems like the sun is gone by about, oh I don’t know, noon. I was really happy how this bunch turned out. These are listed in my shop and I have a whole bunch on flickr.


Just added….

Just added some more of my recycled vhs notebooks to my shop. There are quite a few titles I am pretty excited about.

 

I survived the Etsy show this weekend, but didn’t go to the Artisan Market. I was so tired and I still have the Plague.  There are 2 weeks left at Market and I plan on being there. In part because I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping. Luckily I have pared down the amount I am buying this year.

Also, barring a blizzard, I will be at the Ann Arbor Artisan Market on Sunday. Freezing my hiney off. Only 3 weeks left at the market. Come by and say hi.


Tweed Envy

I take a lot of graffiti photos, most of which are pretty self explanatory,  but  occasionally I find one that just makes me pause and say “huh?”. This is one of those moments.  I mean, why tweed? Why a jacket? Was it just one of those “I overheard a strange comment and to commemorate it” moments? I have those, but I am never carrying spray paint with me when they happen.  Darn the luck.


Forgot a title… and am too tired to come up w/a clever one

Couple exciting things happening around here. I got a call from the Art Center looking for more of my bowls. They took 15. I will be excited to see how the numbers play out after Christmas. They took some of my best titles, which means I have to go lp hunting on Thursday.

The other exciting moment was that I talked to a reporter at the local paper about social networks like Flickr, Facebook and Etsy. I will be one of 3 people featured, and we all use them for things other than just chatting. It will include a sidebar photo and info about me. Today a photographer is coming to take my photo. It sounds like it will be a decent length feature. I am pretty excited about it.
