Mix Tape April

At the Moment:
Della just turned 4 years old and had a really fun Moana birthday party, and Moana came herself! She’s now more obsessed than ever with the movie (not complaining AT ALL). It was a blast! Roy has started T ball and loves it, and is excited for his own birthday party coming up soon, too.

Dan and I went on a trip to Rivera Maya, and it was one of my favorite trips ever. We ate incredible food, relaxed in the sun and read a lot – my kind of vacation! Happily, the warm weather came to Detroit a week after we got home, and though it isn’t quite as hot as Mexico, we’ll take it!

I also got to travel to Chicago with my pal Justin to sell at Vintage Garage Chicago, which was AWESOME. Love to you, Windy City & to my friend Tim who hosted us for the night! It was a great start to my spring/summer season of shows, TBA soon! Thanks too, to everyone who shopped the Sailor Moon collection that was in the shop – I can’t believe how quickly it sold! There’s still a few items left, check them out here.

I was so happy to sew some gifts for a couple of expecting friends this month (these receiving blankets here) and lots & lots of notebooks & jewelry for stores!

Listening to:
Kendrick Lamar, Stevie Nicks, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Lana Del Ray, Depeche Mode and Sneaks. Short list, but what a good one!

Della’s fav song of the month: Kraftwerk “The Robots”. Roy & Del heard Kraftwerk for the first time and totally loved them.

Shopping and Drooling Over:
I don’t think I’ve bought a single thing that wasn’t vintage for us the whole month, so you’ll just have to wait for the next What We Kept blog post for shopping scores!

and Other Things I’m Loving Right Now:
American Gods on Starz – the first episode was great! Any of you guys see it? I’m so eager to talk to someone else who did. Also, going to the final Pistons game at the Palace of Auburn Hills, going to Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum, taking long runs outside, going to the Marshmallow Drop, spring cleaning the house, hunting for & finding some tough customer requests the past few weeks, and Della’s Moana birthday cake made by her Aunt Monica – it was amazing!

Looking Forward to:
Running the 10k I’ve been training for months for, and planting my vegetable & herb garden!
