Tilly & the Wall + Sesame Street = AMAZING

Tilly & the Wall on SESAME STREET from Team Love on Vimeo.

Not normally something I would post but for those of you who don't know... I have been obsessed with this band for about three years. Also Sesame Street was where I grew up! So this makes sense to me :)


Just in time for the @#$%&* holidays

Amp Cover for Todd

Um ya, I made Todd an amp cover for his vintage '65 Ampeg Jet and it is pretty awesome. The color in the photo came out bad unfortunately. Imagine Padres colors in the 80s: gold stitching on a nutmeg color canvas. I am hoping others may be interested although I don't need to add to my list of things to do.


Your Thoughts

Dearest friends,

I have a new banner at the top of my shop... any constructive criticisms? I am still playing with format and getting it from photoshop where it is crisp to the world wide web where is becomes blurry. Any useful tips on that are much appreciated.

Also, FREE SHIPPING through the new year! "OMG" is what you just said when you read that.

All purchases now come with a little special something and it is all wrapped up using recycled packaging materials and fabric scraps. Not in a janky sort of way but in a way that will make you all warm and fuzzy inside.

Sew What

I have been going non-stop for the past few weeks... babysitting for five different families, work at the museum, and sewing. I can't believe I haven't got sick despite less sleep and poor eating habits.

With the craft fair quickly approaching, I am feeling the pressure and find myself dreading sitting down at my sewing machine. I try to avoid it by doing anything but sewing. This little game does not last very long seeing as there is not much to do when it rains for a week straight. I have about 20 finished bags I haven't posted on Etsy and even more cut out just waiting to be all stitched up. I am really focused on grocery/shopping totes.

In a perfect world all my bags will be sold so I can buy all the sweet items I have been collecting on my Etsy Favorites page! I have completely gone from finding things I want to get for others to selfishly looking for myself. I am sorry but I can't help it with all the cool handmade and vintage goodies.

As I mentioned it has been raining, a lot. It will pretty much rain until May with short bursts of sunshine and rainbows. On my way home the other day I saw a double rainbow over a pasture. I could see the whole thing! I pulled over to take a picture and my camera battery was dead, so sad. Here is a cheater picture I didn't take...

IPA Homebrew

Some of you know we homebrew. Todd is more the mastermind and I am more the one who helps out whenever four hands are needed. The goal is always an IPA which is a hoppier version of a pale ale. Not a beer for sissies thats for sure. Super bitter and, when well balanced, perfectly sweet. Tonight we tapped another attempt at an IPA. We have made a few before but we really super charged this one. At around 90 IBUs of perfection I am not complaining. If you're lucky this will be making a trip down to San Diego for sure! ...if it lasts that long ;)
