i know i need a break from the world when riding the bus into work this morning i want to cry listening to lucinda williams 'blue' on my ipod, the bus driver hits a construction man, & walking the streets up to my school i pass 4 homeless men who all look at me so pleadingly...it was/is all i can do to make it up the hill & try to start the day w/o totally losing it.
so, i'm taking a break. i need some time to re-energize & re-focus -- maybe a week or two...maybe less. but i need some things to lift some of this before i have creative-ness & fun-ness & joy-ness to spread again.

a bunch of us small business owners trade out swag & cards together & these are mine little baggies. i broke out the zyron, which really, in theory & concept is awesome, but it's a serious piece of doo doo. but i had fun making these hot pink stickers to seal up my baggies. if any of you wanna trade cards, give me a holler & we can trade swag!
i printed out a bunch of sarah's goodies to put this fun package together! he's putting on this whole porch sittin' series in virginny & i printed some of her awesome thumb wars for them to play with for activity #1! i also printed up some receipt holders to help organize his world! thank you sweet sarah!
lisa solomon's work at limn gallery in SF
jen corace go to the games section and dress yourself up!
this interview with souther salazar & saelee oh...
ryan jacob smith
& then of course, a thing of beauty is a joy forever (or, what i would really love to have)
vintage flap bag
this pouch already sold out i love it so, however, i scored the branch one earlier on & love that one too.
these resin rings i want one as my wedding ring that i don't have.
pictures to come tonight...flickr was acting wonky for me last night and wouldn't upload my pics. i'll try tonight.
i also did the unthinkable: spilt the whole glass of water on my poor little mac, oh yes, i confess. she seems okay (thank god) however, the battery is no longer charging...maybe i shorted something out in there? eek! i will never ever no not ever drink fluids near my beloved little mac book girl...ai yai...

a couple of different collections going on here. i (well, we) collect these numbers that are all over the streets - & sometimes other people that know of our collecting efforts pick them up for us too. thus the 42 taped to my door from our neighbor sian. i've used them before & sewn them up onto cards & stuff...i'm not sure what i will end up doing ultimately with them all...i just like to pick them up - all the different text & fonts are pretty cool to check out. also, the mister collects these free signs; all sorts, he's working on a whole piece of free signs. i think he's got a book in the works. we also get some free signs donated from people that know about this collecting habit...there is something very odd & furtive about "stealing" the free sign & not taking the actual free item that still sits there, a little forlorn & lost...all part of the piece. and then, i like old doors & windows with lots of chippy paint & articulations that are not on doors today at all. so, there's the photo collection of doors that we have too - these red doors are down the street on an old brick building i love...oh, to have the money to build out an old factory building! i love so many down here in the dogpatch area of my neighborhood!
off to do finish up some sprout studio work! have a lovely sunday - the weather is gorgeous here in SF!

grab my camera :( so no pics, but i'll post about it tomorrow.
more on the music front -- excited for hardly strictly bluegrass the line up looks fantastic and i'm super thrilled to catch gillian welch again! we've gone every year they've had it - it's *such* a fun weeekend - & i just found out that the mister will be able to be back with me for that weekend - so extra fun times!! i also scored tix for lucinda williams at the fillmore in october. & i'm looking for show buddies to see the detroit cobras with me on friday october 20th at bottom of the hill. although that was a hard toss up, because slim cessna's auto club is playing at 12 galaxies that night too -- ooo, i love them, but i haven't seen the detroit cobras yet, last time it was sold out - so i'm going to buy tickets beforehand this time...any takers?!
other news, a little top secret holiday gift in the works for the mister - i'll probably be asking for suggestions about it soon...he doesn't read this anyways so i should be able to discuss it soon!
have a lovely tuesday!

(shh..) i also received the most wonderful ring from amy burhoe's site -- pictures to come tomorrow...i'm wearing my glass ring right now and have every intention of buying another one soon!

let's see...i also read the entire ny times; hoorah! had a lovely dinner with wine last night (ibs is calming down a bit - another hoorah!) but, but, but, i miss the mister something awful. :( it's so not fun being alone...i'm such a whiner.
i also packaged up lots of sprout studio orders - i'm beginning to feel like some people might already be, ah-hem, some people (!) holiday shopping! yowza - they'll be on top of things & impress lots of people!
i wanted to post some new sites i've been looking at, but that will come tomorrow - in the meantime, check out some of those blog links to the left; i need to clean them up a little but the majority are ones i really enjoy reading and looking at!
until later sprout peepers!
