I love mail! Especially when you know you are getting something. Soon. But you don't know whitch item will come first, or when. Monday we recieved 2 shirts from Sycamore Baby, they are so cute! Very well made, fun, and unique. And really well priced. The hardest part about ordering was chosing which one to get!

Cutest Cape EVER!

Found this fabric and only bought one yard to test it out. It made quite possibly the cutest cape EVER. It's even better in person... I can only imagine it on a little girl. Or boy. Whatever! It's my newest item for sale in my Etsy shop.

Editors Pick!

Sorry it's been so long since posting- we had serious computer problems and I rarely had access long enough to check my email let alone post. But we're all back to normal around here and I've been able to get online and promote my shop a bit more, which means that cape orders are picking up, which is pretty cool.

I was approached last month by Jessica from NW Kids magazine about being in this months issue as an "Editors Pick" and sure enough, there I am! Here's a link to the entry about Panjo in her blog: http://www.nwkids.com/capes Pretty exciting for me! I have recieved a few orders from it already.
I did a trade with Nate's Wife last week- Nate is an artist, and his wife steals his art and sells it on Etsy. She puts it on shirts. And magnets. I made her son a darn cool cape (see below), and in exchange got a rad shirt for Max and some fridge magnets. He loves his new Breakfast Dragon shirt.

I've been tagged!

New blog and already I have been tagged! From Angelique, at Snow Angel Designs. She makes adorable dolls, and is a great photographer who also sells her wares on Etsy. To be fair, I was tagged over at our family blog months ago by Kathie with Ramonster... who also now sells her fabulous clothes on Etsy. So here's for you both... thanks!

The game is....get tagged and post 5 random facts about yourself and tag 5 others. You also have to make sure to post a comment on their blog to let them know they've been tagged.

5 Random Things About Me…

1) I love musicals. I used to do a bit of community theatre after I graduated in high school and it was so much fun. I wish I could do it again! Maybe someday, after I take up voice lessons again...

2) Speaking of music, I’m a bit of a music geek. I rarely listen to music on the radio, and therefore don’t hear a lot of new artists. My car CD player is stocked with Indigo Girls, Matt the Electrician, Tuck & Patti, and of course my brother’s new album- The Vinyl Trees. Add a few Putamayo kids CD’s, a John Denver album, and that about rounds out my collection!

3) I love to play games. I have a HUGE collection of board games, and am happy to sit down and play at a moments notice. I also love video games, mind benders, card games, crossword puzzles, and other games like Bocce Ball. We haven’t played games much in the last year since Max was born, but I look forward to the time when he is old enough to play with us!

4) I love to travel. We’ve been all over Western Europe and SE Asia. We hope to take a year off and travel the world with our kids sometime. Whether it’s siesta time in Italy, a 5 year old drinking Guiness in Ireland, or seeing the kids bathing in the rivers in Cambodia, travel completely changes your perspective on life in America!

5) I have had some… unexpected jobs. I currently work as a sign language interpreter, doing video relay interpreting. I think interpreting is the best job in the world. Knowing another language gives you the opportunity to meet so many people. You get to be a fly on the wall for a variety of things- interpreting college classes, doctor appointments, job trainings, theatre… you name it! Before interpreting I have worked as a nanny, school age child care teacher, and supervisor at FAO Schwartz. Before that I worked at a game store (soooo fun!), sold Mary Kay Cosmetics (not fun at all) and even did a few jobs impersonating Marilyn Monroe. There are photos around here someplace…

OK, so now I have to tag 5more people. Hmmm... I don't know many other Etsy sellers, or many artisans or craftspeople with blogs. Give me a few more months and maybe I will have more! For now, here are some friends and one Etsian who blog. I hope they forgive me if they have already been "tagged"!

1) Breana with her blog The Journey. Breana is a good friend, and an amazing mama!

2) Chaos, who hasn't posted in awhile and I really miss! Another wonderful mama to the fabulous Fiona.

3) Kathleen, who recently just had a new little girl. Hmmm, maybe she won't have time to be Tagged. Oh well, here it goes! Biscuit Raising...

4) Mary, of Ballard Famiglia. Mama to Giacomo. Adorable.

5) Lemon Cadet, who I have never met, but whose blog I read and stuff I love. You gotta visit her shop!
