PS. The other day I had to have a fetal echocardiogram because the baby has an irregular heartbeat. It was a mind blowing testimony to our achievements in the ultrasound field. I was not really looking forward to the procedure since I hate having my belly messed with but it ended up being ok, since I could see the baby in full detail, which made me swoon. Results are that baby's heart is functioning properly. Probably just nerves, it runs in the family.
PPS. I'm a little bit excited over scoring the Etsy co-op Bust magazine ad.
After running into my friend Carye Bye in the letterpress room, and having much needed catching up time with her, we decided to take down our show at the IPRC without having a closing party. We originally wanted to have an artists talk and closing party since our opening was upstaged by the VP debates everyone was so hungry to see. Since then we've decided we're ready to take the work down and be done. And after making a discovery that Justin the IPRC director erroneously referred to me as "Broken Hips Press" in several publications - which really kinda makes me giggle -- I think I'm ready to end the show without any fanfare.
So! You have until Friday, January 30th to check out the show if you haven't already done so. And it's a good excuse for you to check out the Independent Publishing Resource, hang out in the zine library in the cozy chairs with unbathed hipsters and other random sorts. I guarantee you will be entertained in some fashion.

me holding a sketch by Patrick entitled "Buck vs. Bye" That's me on the right. Note my pre-preg belly in the sketch - I can no longer fit into that plaid skirt.
I'm very excited about these little trinkets. I'm hoping to get these posted on Etsy soon. First a trial test, wearing the charms for a day to see if I break out or not. I have the world's most sensitive skin, so I should make a good guinea pig. I'm also waiting for more ribbon. I bought all the black 3/8" ribbon they had at Fabric Depot.
I'm not sure what these are about, but they're in front of my temporarily decommissioned press.
And... last but not least... I've been collecting champagne corks the past month to build this small army. Good thing all my co-workers are such lushes. Just kidding. The idea came from the September issue of the French Marie Claire Idées.
I'm going to assemble these guys into a mobile for the baby's room. And there's going to be a Barack Obama, in cork form.
PS. Happy 2009 everybody! Any resolutions? C'mon you guys! Here's mine: 1. Call that sales rep 2. update my website with checkout 3. Have a healthy, happy baby.
But Oscar Wilde supposedly said, "Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account."
