Muskegon Farmer's Market! !!

I'll be downtown at the Muskegon Farmer's Market be there next week, Tuesday Sept 1st, and Thursday Sept 3rd selling purses, wallets, pouches, and new market totes.

Made from t-shirts with almost zero waste (only the sleeves are leftover) these are perfect for groceries, shopping, or a nice big carry-all. $3 each or 2 / $5.

Come visit next week.

Check out their website for more information on local vendors and directions.

Am I really home cleaning on a Friday... ?

Sitting in my apartment on this Friday evening... just finished cleaning up my sewing mess from the week. Can't get much work done with the light on my sewing lamp burnt out. Forgot to buy light bulbs today. Baaaahhh. So annoyed with my absentmindedness. Vacuumed my whole apartment. Then realized... "wow, it's Friday and I'm home vacuuming."

Oh well, I have great company. Clem and Stel are cooler than most people I know. Stella has this fascination with anything that has plastic in it. I just caught her with her head in my purse looking for candy wrappers. Then it was my sewing trash looking for the backing of sticky paper. Silly girl. More entertaining than popcorn and a movie, and much cheaper.

I bought this lovely notebook made from a recycled Cyndi Lauper record cover from Etsy seller ikcdesign today:

I can't wait to get it!

Now time for a glass of merlot and the last episode of "Transgeneration" on Netflix online. Interested to see how Gabbi's surgery goes. She annoys the piss out of me but it's interesting.

One year!

August 14th, 2009 marked one year to the day that I signed up with Etsy and created my business. Has it really been one year already? It REAALLLY flew by! I celebrated by buying myself a new computer.

I'm marking the beginning of my second year with a strict business model (which I'm still developing of course ha.. ). I'll be updating my blog weekly.. so be sure to keep checking in on the new updates.

It's time to start taking myself a little more seriously. I've been a little lazy with this beautiful summer weather.. living so close to the beach doesn't really help. I'm trying to buckle down, sew at least 40 hours a week.. my tan is already starting to fade... guess that means I'm doing what I'm supposed to right? ha.
