At the Moment:
It’s the last full month of summer, and we’ve been packing ALL the summer things in – trips to the pool, trips to the water park, watching baseball, hangouts with pals at the park, road trips to other zoos, and hiking in the woods. Oh, and one more thing to pack in – selling at my last two summer festivals – DIYpsi and Heidelberg Project’s block party. Then I got to see my all time favorite band, Depeche Mode, on tour & it was INCREDIBLE, and watch Paul Frank give a presentation at The Henry Ford. Each of these things were really fun in their own ways, and I’m really gonna miss all the time together we get as a family & with our friends in the summer. Oh, and I almost forgot – Roy lost his first tooth, learned how to tie his own shoes & learned to ride his big kid bike all in the same week!
School starts again this week, and so does more time for me to work on the shop – which is very exciting! I’ve already been photographing new stuff for fall, and some has been appearing slowly…expect a lot more starting next week!
I made a custom David Bowie Record Embroidery for a friend, and worked a bit on knitting a hat for another friend. Unfortunately, one of my machines that I use for my handmade notebooks needed repair, but I’m happy to report it is all fixed and ready to go, so lots of notebooks are getting made in September, and more Record Jewelry too!
HAIM “Something to Tell You”, The Raveonettes “2016 Atomized”, Protomartyr, Tom Petty, Prince, Sloan, and LOTS of Depeche Mode for days before & after the concert. My favorite podcast of the month was Jon Cryer on My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan, talking about Radiohead’s “OK Computer” – I highly recommend!
