My First Show!!!!

The East Atlanta Strut was this weekend and I had a total blast! My first show was a total success and I can't wait to do it again!

The weather was just about perfect and I had an awesome friend that came to help me....well....she kinda took over really. Without her, I woulda been a complete spaz. I was really lucky to have her there!

The crowd was a good one. It was a little slow in the morning, but once the parade ended people just came from all directions. I think I did get a bit overwhelmed at times, but nothing a little gin and tonic didn't fix!

I had some GREAT neighbors. They were A LOT of fun. I'll have to post a link to her shop once I find her card. She had some really cute stuff!

My best sellers BY FAR were my Battle Scarred Bears. They were gone FAST. I really got a lot of compliments on everything and heard a lot of "wow you're really under pricing your things". I was so happy to hear some good feedback. You know, you kinda go in and wonder if anybody will like your creations as much as you do. I did, of course, have a bit a separation anxiety which I knew I would. You kinda get used to seeing all these cute little faces looking at you all the time and then one day they're just not there. I know they all went to fantastic homes though.

Thanks again everyone! I hope to do another show before Christmas so I will of course keep everyone posted. I'll also start putting a lot more in my etsy shop, so you'll have to check it out!


I knew you would do good, just had no idea how good! Congratulations!!!

Where I'm At

I have no internet access at work and it's killin' me. It's nuts how hooked on that shit I am! I'm used to havin' Facebook open all day.....chattin' with friends, lookin' at all the stupid shit mas. One day, I'm gonna go missin' and my new co-workers are gonna find me huddled in a corner rockin' back and forth droolin' on myself mumblin' somethin' about Facebook destroyin' my life. I hope they just put me outta my misery right then and there.......

Unfortunately, my blog's gonna take the biggest hit. I've always blogged from from work. It was nice and quiet and I could THINK which is somethin' that's dang near impossible to do at home. This whole havin' a husband and kids thing doesn't really afford me the time or the quiet I need to write.

Today though I decided I don't really care about all those hours of Facebook updates. They were amusing at work, but once I'm at home, ehhh...…

$13 Tattoos at 13 Roses in East Atlanta....On Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is upon us again! The most unluckiest of all days. Mwuahahahahah!!!!

HOWEVER, you can turn it around and make it your LUCKIEST day, because 13 Roses Tattoo Parlour in East Atlanta is having their $13 tattoo special! No, you didn't read wrong....THIRTEEN FREAKIN' DOLLARS (+ a $7 lucky tip). You gotta 20? You gotta tattoo!

The artists in the shop have drawn up 13 different designs to choose from and they all incorporate the number 13. Last year, a friend of mine got a little bat with the number 13 in it and it was pretty flippin' sweet! You wanna know what there is to chose from this year? You gotta get your sweet ass down there and see for yourself!

It's first come first serve. You get put on a list, your not able to choose the artist (ya git who ya git, but they're all pretty awesome!), you pick one of the 13 designs they have and bickety freakin' got yer tattoo!
Seriously you could totally make a day/night outta this! The doors will be …
