today is friday. i just coated my first silk screen with photo emulsion, and i'm really excited to explore the options of photo negatives. i'm hoping to get my new logo into different sizes and see where i can take that (garment logo on inside of pieces, launder and care info, recycled paper tags, etc.). i also want to do some cool silk screening besides the logo. i hope i don't botch the screen altogether.
yesterday i made granola, and it turned out awesome. i don't have my camera right now, so no pics, but it's tasty. i also sprouted some sunflower seeds and i think they're edible now. it was pretty easy and fun, but we'll see how they taste. next are some alfalfa sprouts and some yogurt. i'm going to try the heating pad method of keeping the temperature up.
i just found this site yesterday while looking at a cool fashion blog (fashion isn't always nyc and runway, this one was cool portland bike freaks obsessed with refashioning and everything). his hats are sweet and i'm definitely going to be stealing some ideas. reload apparently sells his hats. besides his business he seems like a real cool guy too.
my computer is either shocking me or pinching my armhair, really strange. but i've got hats to cut out and work to do, so i'm out. i'll update with pictures soon.

oh, i forgot to mention, my bubblegum pink deep-v velocity wheelset arrived on wednesday. i am totally excited to start building my city bike! they're so cool.


photos of hats

here are some photos of the hats i'm making. as you can see, model daughter bribed with candy. and she still didn't want to wear them. they'll be for sale dec. 7th evening (friday) and from 11-4 on saturday the 8th. location: circle of hope, broad and washington. more info to follow, but that's pretty much what you need to know. i'm also working on getting a website up.


guess who peed on the potty???!

little sagey peed for her first time on the potty tonight. i am really proud of her, she earned her mini chocolate bar for sure (is it wrong to reward with candy? look people, i've got 13 short weeks til terror #2 is here, and i'd love to not be changing two poopy diapers at a time. so judge as you like, but it's better for all of us in the long run (landfills and water wasted on washing her cloth diapers)). i knew she had to poop and wanted that to happen on the pot, but no, another diaper change was in store. she wanted to read a magazine like mommy. haha!! i don't plan on pushing the subject too much, we'll see what happens.
in other cool news, i'm getting a ton of my creations together for art shop, a cool thing our church is putting on for local artisans to sell their stuff around holiday time. i'll be plugging it more. but today i finished my first baby cycling hat, in courduroy, and it's bangin. i need to make them baby-proof though, because even though it's the coolest thing that's ever graced her head, sage still rips it off right away. perhaps some winter-style ones with ear flaps and elastic. i made some really silly mistakes, as usual, but it worked out. i definitely like the courduroy.
i'm feeling huge (body-wise). i got pictures developed today for my mom and mother-in-law and saw how ripped and lean i was for my tri (even at 2 months pregnant) and it was sad. i'm trying not to worry about it, but i really do miss the endorphin flow that comes with a tough workout, and the mental challenge of waking up another day and having two workouts to complete. i really think that triathlons might be something i'll persue in the future, lord willing. it was cool to have the other challenge of raising money too, it was a good balance of training and fundraising.
that's all for now, i'm gonna try to take some pics of my stuff soon and post them.
