Patchwork :: Spring 2009

::double-sided tape::

Sunday was the Patchwork Indie Arts & Crafts Faire and it was a blast! I shared a space with my dear friend Ivy from delightful trinkets again and I'm so lucky to have her as a partner! She makes the day more fun and she has such cool jewelry that it helps drive traffic to my little shop!

I was fortunate to sell a little bit, but I was most grateful for all the people who came out to support me and the new friends that I made and got to finally meet! The highlight was meeting my fellow blogger friends in person. Carlene from It's Heavenly came by and she's as lovely as ever. By the way, she's doing a fabulous giveaway on her blog. Check it out here.

Then Henny & Lucy from D*LISH came by. This pair of girls are talented on so many levels. Not to mention kooky! It was an immediate giggle fest from the moment I spotted them coming towards the booth. Look out for the OC List. Here we come :)!!!

Zee Avi :: Free In Store Performance @ Fingerprints!

Zee Avi was just as fabulous as her album. Her voice is impeccable and I love her sense of style! She's so teeny and it was a pleasure to meet her in person. We got there a little late cuz of dinner, so I don't have good pictures of her performing. My friend Jenn joined me cuz she was inspired by her music as well. She had Zee sign her iphone! Go technology!

She told us that the song Bitter Heart was featured in a Wal-Mart commercial, so if you think it sounds familiar, then that's why :).

Thanks to Danni for telling me about this in store performance. I'm sad she couldn't come with me!

Zee Avi

Zee Avi is my new fave! Her jazzy folk sound puts me in a kick back, ice tea drinking mood.


I'm an avid TV watcher, but these days it's limited to the Sprout channel and Noggin. There are a few shows, however, that are make it my DVR list. I was surprised that I only have 3 shows in the queue: One Tree Hill, The Hills and Trust Me.

Okay, a few weeks ago my heart nearly shattered because my dear friend told me that TNT canceled Trust Me!!! It's basically a show about the world of advertising and I totally relate to it. Now it's gone. Hopefully another network will realize how awesome this show is and bring it back. You can watch all of the episodes of the first and only season here.

UNIQUE Los Angeles :: May 3, 2009

Last Sunday, Michaela and I made our way out to Unique Los Angeles! It's so hard when you're totally on a budget and you want everything you see. I have to say, I am totally inspired and each and every one of the vendors this year are superly talented! Danni from Oh, Hello Friend was kind enough to save me a ticket to the event. Thanks friend!

The bag we won at the Yelp booth.

I bought an apron by eon for my upcoming craft faires :)

More flair for the collection by just jenn designs.

And I couldn't leave without getting something from Oh, Hello Friend. I got an owl ring for Michaela and a fabulous gold necklace for myself!
