Birthday Weekend + Renegade Craft Fair SF

Friday, July 27, 2012

I invited my close friends to Hog Island Oyster Farm in Marshall, CA for a tutorial in shucking & a day of feasting!

Highlight of the day was everyone chanting "SHUCK SHUCK SHUCK!!" (instead of "chug" teehee).
My laser-cut charms were the secret hush hush giveaway item for my birthday at Renegade Craft Fair.
A customer brought me a strawberry chocolate cupcake from Miette for my birthday. The nicest ever!!! :)

I'm turning the big 2-8 tomorrow so to celebrate I'm giving a little gift to all of you. Everyone's favorite gift: FREE 99!!! There are two ways to participate:

1. On Friday July 20, visit my online store and use coupon code "YOUREOLD" for free shipping. Then if you spend more than $10, you get a free gift, too. Hollaaaa. Please note coupon is only valid on July 20, 12am-11:59pm.

2. If you're in San Francisco this weekend, swing by Renegade Craft Fair & use the secret phrase "Happy Birthday" at my booth to get a different free gift (while supplies last!). Heyyyyy.

My dear friend Jill introduced me to Brittany Curran the founding editor of Twenty Two, a wonderful blog celebrating creatives, artists, food, fashion, sustainability, and all the other great things in this world. Here's my interview where I discuss my sources of inspiration, favorite biking spots in Los Angeles, and some other random, silly tidbits. Enjoy!

Seattle + Vancouver

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Ah, another trip that involves mostly eating! Those vacations are my favorite, especially when you mix a little business with pleasure. Please enjoy the photos from my Seattle + Vancouver trip & weekend at Urban Craft Uprising!
Dot's Diner - porchetta sandwich
Walrus & the Carpenter - happy hour $1 oysters
Revel - Dungeness crab, seaweed noodle, spicy red curry & creme fraiche
Local 360 - PB&J bon bons with a shot of milk. We also had the whiskey flight. Yum!
Paseo - caribbean roast sandwich & scallop sandwich (go early while they have bread!)

Urban Craft Uprising & the saddest card I've ever had to write.
En route to Vancouver & Stanley Park
The most delicious sushi (besides in Japan) in Vancouver, as recommended by my friend Akash. Look how cheap that uni is!! And it was sooo yummy, too. They even gave us extra pieces on the house. I highly recommend. And you can wash it down with some bubble tea from Dragon Ball.
Thank you for a memorable time, Seattle & Vancouver. I hope to do another Urban Craft Uprising soon! And perhaps move to Seattle because it is so wonderfulllll.

Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle THIS WEEKEND

Thursday, July 05, 2012

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm skipping along the west coast this summer to see all your beautiful faces and bring you my illustrated lovelies. Next on the list: Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle! I think I'm most excited about this fair because one, I've never participated and two, I LOVE Seattle! Kevin's been putting together a rather detailed and comprehensive google map of various destinations (mostly food :). I'll take suggestions if you have any!

I feel so prepared for this show, mostly because the organizers are so on top of their ish. They even organized workshops and refreshments for the vendors as they set up on Friday! How about that! And they have tickets for vendors to fill out to do trades. I love it!
Here's a preview of what I'll be bringing to the fair (it's new, too!).
