random thoughts


underdog :: fall/winter 06, originally uploaded by dressform.

i can't believe it's almost a week since i've posted anything. it's been a whirlwind of activity over in my corner of the world.

i WILL talk more about my trip - just not today. i actually still need a few days to finish formulating some of my thoughts [not to mention just download the images from my camera - it's been that kind of week here folks]

so..... in no particular order, but all of importance in some way shape and form:

1. new stuff available at underdog ink . some of you know this already b/c you signed up for the email list.... so if you want to be the first to know you know what to do :) ! amazingly enough one of the holiday cards is already sold out [wow! how did that happen?!] - but there's plenty of stuff left.... and i actually plan on adding stuff a few more times between now and the frenzy of the holidays to come. i'll post about updates here.... i don't want to keep sending out mass emails - well... maybe one more

2. speaking of the holidays i will be participating in a couple of sales with the above stuff. if you are local i'd love for you to come buy and say hello [and buy handmade - not just from me but from other amazing and talented artists - like shash!! . the info on any sale that i'm participating in is available on the events page of the underdog site. woo hoo! i bought a very special foldable camping table that i'm very excited to test out [yes.... i get excited by things like this]

3.
from wendy :: kokeshi
this lovely lady is mine all mine.... the incredibly talented wendy sent her to me. if you are lucky enough to catch wendy and her work at bazaar bizzare... you should!

4.
beautiful use

i participated in beautiful use organized by the lovely kelly . the above 5 senses [ shari!!! ] package was sent to me by reva . everything about this package was perfect... the fabric for my needle holder [will be put to good use!] the wrapping.... the lavender scent... and her photo is gorgeous! you should definitely check out her blog - she has a great sensibility. thank you reva!!

5. i was asked by renee if i wanted to participate in a blanket project she cooked up. the premise is to buy cool space age blankets for homeless folks since winter fast approaches. thank goodness for cool organized people who are willing to do things like this! if you want to join in check out her post about it... and leave her a comment there !

6. on no wait... not 6.... thanks for making it through this post... i'll try to do more frequent and shorter posts [really i will try]. i have been keeping up w/ most your blogs, but flickr is a lost cause.... hopefully soon. is it just me or does life speed up come november?? um... happy almost friday?!?!?! [friday!! oy vey!] which means check out ash's book club post!

p/s from matilda : hello everyone!!! thank you for all your kind hellos.... i wish you could all pet me!! mama has been spending some of her computer time playing with me.... pppuuuurrrrr

hello dearest!

the new underdog ink items are fantastic! I wish I WISH I could come visit you at the show (and buybuybuy). I understand completely the excitement over the folding table, I'm like that too :)

I love wendy's work so much! I predict she'll be a big hit at the bazaar.

Splendid swap package :) You always photograph your swaps/surprise packages so beautifully.

Renee's idea about the space age blankets is genius!

xox, abee
