Renegade Rocked!

Man was this show great! And just what I needed to get my spark back. A lot of sales, a ton of great people, a marching band, and best of all no rain! Yippy!

Some of the highlights. . . I sold all my robots and a ton of logs.

I met one of my favorite bloggers, Evany Thomas, who I've felt a kinship with ever since I first happened on her fun, quirky, wonderful blog. She bought a log and we had our picture taken together. I must admit I geeked out a bit, well a lot, but she was so sweet and invited me to ice cream the next time I'm in the city.

I also met the wonderful Annie and Eric (and bought some pretty, pretty art from them for my new place). We clicked instantly and Eric and I are gonna collaborate on some robot-y goodness very soon (so exciting!). I know they will soon be MIBF besties! I can just feel it.

Then today I found out that another lovely lady blogged some of my items on her blog This Humble Abode. Thanks Jenny! It was swell meeting you!

Oh! And the rocks got a mention on SF Weekly's blog.

And we got ANOTHER mention on Apartment Therapy! Wow! I feel so very lucky! I promise to get to making those birch logs and robots fast as can be.

Wow! That's a lot of love for the Boyfriend! Our cheeks are all aglow with pride!

I forgot to tell you, though I did kinda mention it above, I'm moving! Not out of Bakersfield, just out of the family home and in with a friend who's recently moved back to town. It will be nice to be able to do my sewing in a room in which I don't sleep. I'm moving in drips and drabs this week then moving the big stuff over the weekend and I should be all settled by Monday ready to start churning out logs and robots and other sorts of goodness.

Man that's a lot of stuff! Better run and get back to last minute sewing and packing. Talk laters!

Hearts and puppies,
erika

Ha! Now that you've mentioned it on your blog, you can't back out. :-P

Congrats again on the show.

Hi there!

I am so sorry we can't make it down to see you this weekend. We have to spend all day Saturday getting our house ready for Sunday's open house, during which I want to hide in the closet and hear what people say about our sweet home!

Is it a gathering for your birthday? If so, happy happy happy!

Hope you see you soon. Eric is looking forward to collaborating with you on some robots. Oh and I mentioned your logs in Zinc Details today (a cool SF store) and she said she was going to look you up.

Kisses!
