Knitting Bug

I have been knitting up a storm lately, and I really like it! Mostly baby things, but that’s because they’re cute and quick to knit.

My mister is so silly, because he said it makes him nervous when I knit  baby things. LOL!

Seriously, I have no less than 6 friends who have either just had babies, or they’re newly pregnant.

I also have heaps of gorgeous colorways by Mosaic Moon in my stash, so having lovely reasons to knit garments from neglected skeins suits me just fine.

I’m so happy to have this recent knitting bug!

BIG NEWS and New Developments

Veggie Headshot

I’ve been so busy these last few weeks, but it’s been pretty good busy. We’ve had some highs and lows with my Mother’s deterioration and steady decline, had many adventures during our Summer break, had our hairs cut to stay cool in the delicious heat, and found an awesome part-time job at Community Natural Foods, a local health food store.

Veggie Deo Stack

Working at Community has been a wonderful environment and opportunity for me to learn, grow, and share. I’ve also been approved to sell my Veggiewitch Cream Deodorant there! I submitted my application and proposal with samples (both 60ml/2oz and 120ml/4oz sizes in each scent) on July 21, 2014, and was called for an interview on August 4, 2014, to sign some papers and get the ball rolling. It’s so exciting!

CNF Labels

We have a tentative beginning of September launch, but my UPC’s are in the CNF system and the shelf labels have been printed. Squeeeeeeeee!

Here there be Ravens!

Raven Ink

I’ve done it again! I had a little bat named Batty on my left scapula, that I had done 15 years ago. It was my very first tattoo, but it was looking very faded and awful, so I decided to get him covered over on November 1. The artist, Rick, who did the cover-up, came up with the concept above. I love it! His name is Poe, and I will eventually get the word “Nevermore” added between my shoulder blades, but I think I’ll wait until the New Year for that…

Blue Morpho Butterfly

When I lived in Brazil, I saw a shop that carried plaques depicting people in various aspects of life. It wasn’t until I looked closer that I noticed there were wings of the blue morpho butterfly incorporated into each scene. I was only 14 at the time, but that sudden realization left me feeling sick to my stomach. I couldn’t understand how such beautiful lives could wantonly be sacrificed for cheap, tacky excuses for art. As much as I said I wouldn’t do it, I’m thinking my next tattoo will be a butterfly after all, a blue morpho, Ok, maybe not the “next” tattoo I get, but I’ll find a spot suitable for one. ;0)
