What's a Pin-up Girl with blue hair?

Answer....My first etsy sale!
I was so excited to get my first sale and since it was a custom request, the buyer asked me to do a girl that looked like her. She has blue hair. I clicked over to her profile on etsy and saw that she loved bunnies.
Here is the cute!

A New Era

Today is the first day of Asher selling at the world famous Pike Place Market.

I just talked to him and the set up went well, he is focusing on relaxing and making some sales. According to the website, 10 million visitors walk through there a year, making it one of Washington's most frequently visited destinations. How could you get a bigger audience? It is an amazing opportunity and I am so proud of my hubby for being selected and making a go of it.

One of the first weekends after Asher moved here from Brooklyn, I took him down to the Market. We walked through slowly, taking it all in. Towards the end of the row of vendors, we ran into a guy doing caricatures and drawing on trucker hats. At the time, I was wearing the hat Asher had made for me with my nickname, Blondie, written on it in graffiti. They admired each other's work. That guy was Mr. Dan who has been such a supporter of Asher's work and a good friend. And now they are working together. In the Market. How cool is that?

Check out the website: Also you can see his work on his page at And Dan's work at

And if you are in the area, stop by the booth and say "Hello" and buy something rad!
Here is a pic from Dan's website of his booth at the market.

Shopping Spree!

I blame:
1 - Trisha for telling me she just went shopping on
2 - work being so slow
I went to JCrew online and shopped. Found a coupon code but it was expired. Called in to see if I could play dumb. It worked and the guy gave me the "EXTRA30" 30% off as well as 20% off and free shipping because my order was initially over $150. Basically, I got the shoes of my dreams, a t-shirt and headband for $80. But seriously....look at these shoes. How could I resist, I ask? I have been eyeing them since they first came out. My little Lulus!! It was a serious debate between the pink and the yellow. But as is usually the case, the pink won out. AHHHH! 5-7 days until my feet feel the glory.
I'm being dramatic but...I think I will name my first girl after them. Lulu Loctor....squeal!
