At the Moment:
Della and Roy are PUMPED for Christmas and for Star Wars. I’m PUMPED for Detroit Urban Craft Fair. Dan is moderately excited for all three. I really have no capacity to write or think about writing any more than this because I need to go make more stuff. The end. Of this section.
I made my own version of this wall hanging for our family room, and love it! Also, a runner for our bookshelf. Oh, and 64 new Rescued Reads Notebooks, 52 mini notebooks from vintage Michigan playing cards (thanks to Justin for finding), a few new Record Embroideries and about 100 pairs of Record Earrings (new colors!). So, basically, I’ve made ALL THE THINGS.
Beach Slang, El VY, Ben Folds Five, and REM have been on heavy rotation this month.
Shopping and Drooling Over:
I found Della the most incredible Korean War era embroidered jacket at the thrift. It’s satin on side, velvet on the other and definitely one of the craziest, coolest things I’ve ever found. From Korea. Srsly. Awesome.
Also found some other fantastic things thrifting, but you’ll have to read the next What We Kept blog post to see those.
Other than those things, I’m saving all my spending money for DUCF. I can’t wait!
and Other Things I’m Loving Right Now:
Seeing over 3000 people RSVP so far to Detroit Urban Craft Fair, lunch hangouts at Republica, Flip in Ferndale now carrying my Record Earrings, rad vintage T shirt gifts from Justin, visiting the Vintage Fashion show at Rust Belt Market, watching Roy’s preschool class Thanksgiving show, The Peanuts Movie, all the new DUCF shirts we’ve had made, getting some early Xmas shopping done, finding the perfect vintage angel to go on our tree, double hangouts with my BFF in one month, and this creative/making binge that never seems to end right now.
Looking Forward to:
DUCF! DUCF! DUCF! Tiny Expo! Pop-Up Shop at the MOCAD! I’m thrilled to be busy the next three weekends at shows. Oh, and Christmas. Christmas too.
