for the onesies, i ended up making three different designs without words: mixtape, artichoke, and the boo ghost. last night i had to cab home so i could iron all the onesies and finish packaging everything in time to bring to depart-ment. holy gosh, that took forever. setting up last night was awesome. for those not in chicago, DEPART-ment is a really awesome craft fair where everyone codes their items and all similar items are grouped together and then when a shopper is done, they bring all their stuff to the counter and check out! there is no fee to sell, but at the end of the weekend, 10% of the money made (if you do a 2 hour volunteer shift, 15% if you don't) is taken out and they give you a check. i've never done it before, so i am psyched. it's tonight 7-11pm, and saturday/sunday 11-5. it's at the av-aerie (2000 w. fulton). i'm psyched. the stuff there is insane! i think ginny and i are going tonight, possibly with boehms. tomorrow i volunteer. then it's slarrafenland at SUA, and JV at empty bottle. he listed me so i am okay to get there late. i just hope i can make it. sad i have to miss bishop allen, but i've been psyched for this slarrafenland show. i really hope the turnout is good.
nicole (pink loves brown - http://www.pinklovesbrown.com ) just wrote about a project she did getting ripped off by urban outfitters: http://blog.makingitlovely.com/2007/10/coincidence.html some of you wonder why i realllllllly dislike them. that's part of the why. they have no shame! this is also a fascinating blog about a similar topic: http://www.counterfeitchic.com
tonight after depart-ment, i think our apartment is due for a cleaning. it looks like a joann fabric exploded. z cat is not pleased! hoggle doesn't mind. that means more places for him to hide when he's out. :) i don't think i said it this week, but i love that little guy. even if i am constantly cleaning poop off his paws and his wheel every morning, he and the boo light up my life!
i've been reading ayan halliday's jobhopper and i love it. i really like her style of writing and i kind of feel like mine would be similar if i happened to write a book.
also, anyone who wants to play me in scrabulous on facebook, STEP TO IT! i love it.
