At the Moment:
February was awesome. First, I got to hang out with some of my favorite crafters and friends at the Midwest Craft Con! There were some awesome classes and fun crafty shenanigans, and I also spoke on the “Craft Show Confidential” panel. Then the kids had mid-winter break and we had a few really fun days together after I got home, including a mini-road trip to Toledo. Then the month ended with seeing The Mummies at Third Man Records. It was a phenomenal show, and I was so glad to finally see them live.
Reware bonuses to the month: This was the month for the return of the WCSX Rock Swap, and it was another stellar time. I loved talking music all day to people & oh yeah, I sold a bunch of T shirts too. Also, in case you missed it earlier – we are now offering First Class Shipping on the site, and I’m so glad to see you guys taking advantage of that & saving you some money with that.
I knit a hat for me & for Della, and have started on one for Roy now too. It’s been many years since I knit anything, so I’m really enjoying getting back into it again in the evenings.
Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam, Camper Van Beethoven, David Bowie, Justin Timberlake, and the new Depeche Mode single – “Where’s the Revolution” over and over and over.
Della’s fav song of the month:
Jeff Rosenstock “Festival Song” – I’m on board with this one. It’s a damn good song.
Shopping and Drooling Over:
I got this super cute retro beach umbrella patterned swim suit on Amazon of all places, and this incredible solar system dress from Modcloth and I love them both SO much!
Have you seen the Gap 90s Archive Re-issue line?!? I stared at it for days. Then I decided what I wanted and it was sold out in my size, insert sad emoji here.
I was so happy to stop by Handmade Toledo while we were in town to visit the Toledo Zoo and do a little shopping for the kids & I – and we got to visit my friend Lindsy there too! If you live nearby and haven’t been yet, I highly recommend.
Finally, this Christian Siriano T shirt. A must get for me!
and Other Things I’m Loving Right Now:
Having a date night on the 19th anniversary of the night Dan & I met, visiting the Toledo Zoo for the first time, my new record shelf from my friend Stephen at October Academy, volunteering at a local soup kitchen with my friends, Motor City Float making me feel like a new person, watching every episode of The Americans again before the next season starts up, and catching up on some reading lately.
Looking Forward to:
Depeche Mode’s new album coming out on March 17th – they are my all time favorite band, so a new album is always a big treat!
