Dustbowl round two*

Saturday was great, the kind of day that makes me never want to leave Norman. My booth did really well. We were even blessed with relatively mild weather (we're lucky to keep below triple digits this time of year).
I'm constantly amazed at the support of my friends and my community, and at the number of talented local artists, musicians and creatives that call this place home. I think there's something to be said for the kind of nurturing that a small town can give young artists and entrepreneurs. I'm trying to fill my heart with optimism as I prepare to leave this little pond, and I hope the success and happiness I've felt in Oklahoma follows me north and grows.

tee party *

Dustbowl round two is right around the corner and I've been working my fingers to the bone (please note the band-aid on the thumb holding a beer- and no, this injury was not related to sewing under the influence.) This time around, I feel like I know what I'm doing, to some extent, and I have a good idea of what people liked from my booth in April. It happens to be the start of a new fall semester at the university and I'm thinking that I might have some kindred spirits out there who would consider a new tee shirt to be a necessary school supply. . I'm really looking forward to this weekend, If you're local I hope you'll stop by.
40 venders! 12 bands! check out the poster below for more details.

alive and kicking *

Well hello friends, just thought I'd take a sec to let you all know that I am indeed alive, well, and maintaining my residence here on planet earth. Talk about an unintended blog break. I've got no one good excuse, just a lot of little crappy ones that I promise not to bore you with.
To be honest, I seem be emerging from a brief phase of slackerdom. Maybe we'll call it a sabbatical (yeah, that sounds academic and grand), a sabbatical doing research on junk requisition, patio happy hours, and media exposure, specifically the never ending time-suck that is Lost on Netflix.

Oh and guess what? We're moving. The real reason for that little get away to Kansas City a few weeks ago was that D had a job interview. My vague and decidedly lame post on our trip was of course to avoid a dreaded jinx. Anyway, he got the job and we're and super excited. I, on the other hand, have no job or prospects for that matter. So, if you or anyone you know in the Kansas City area are in need of a contract house plant murderer or a professional
de-organizer, hit me up.

I'm also getting ready for my second Dustbowl and I'll have more to show you soon. These hoops were a recent commission, that hopefully made a nice birthday gift.
