And Then a View-Master Appeared, Out of Thin Air

So we were attacked by a mystery gift giver late late last night! There were 2 packages, addressed to Kevin and I (we should’ve taken a picture before opening, but was too excited). Both were wrapped in a faux-wood wallpaper/laminate, but with no indication of whom it was from. This was what Kevin got:
A Parker pen and pencil set, and a red Spacepen, inside a glasses case. Inside the glasses case were 3 random slips of paper, 1 looks to be an address, the yellow has 2 phone numbers, and the other is a Voter stub from Santa Barbara County, dated November 7, 2006.

I got a sweet Vintage View-master with tons of awesome slides.
Whoever this mysterious gifter is, I thank thee!

Vacation? What's That?

no matter how much work i do, i always feel behind. although the semester is over and i'm on winter break, that does not mean vacation for me. i just stopped by Flock Shop yesterday to drop off some more stuff for consignment. i never got around to listing all the leftovers from Co-Lab. in the back of my mind, i know i probably could've made a killing on last minute holiday shoppers and now i have to hope people are looking to gift themselves post-xmas. i'll be spending all of today photographing new items and listing them. as well as making new tags. it seems that i can never have enough tags!

don't even get me started on my portfolio. i'm purposely only taking 6 units next semester to force myself to work hard on my portfolio to get into the BFA for Graphic Design. all-the-while trying to grow my company... well for starters...get to the point where i can deal with the legal stuff and write off yarn purchases on my taxes =)

being a one woman machine gets tough but i wouldn't have it any other way.
