I like....

I've been scare here lately, due to an insane amount of custom orders (which I'm super thankful for, but are leaving me a bit more frazzled then usual), but here are a few things I've been really enjoying or hope to enjoy soon.
(A.) Camera ring from Fred Flare (B.) We by Yevgeny Zamyatin (I just finished it and loved, loved, LOVED it) a wonderful dystopia that's based in the future where the soul is considered to be a disease. People aren't people but merely numbers, where "every one" and "I" are a single "We". I highly suggest it over and over again. (C) Kimya Dawson's Remember I Love You LP, Kimya has that rare ability to deliver the most lovely, abrasive, warm and fuzzy, cleverly tragic lyrics I've ever heard. I can go from wanting to cry to laughing out load within the same song. Seriously a treat that I must have once a day. (D) Sherbert Colorblock headphones, I love these headphones, so fun and vibrant they just seem to call out to me. Hope you all had a really lovely weekend,

Mixing it up

After the long weekend things are just getting back to whatever's considered normal here in the land of madness. I didn't manage to ignore things completely this weekend as I had hoped, but some great things were made. I finally got around to making a few of these wall plaques that I've had in my head for quite sometime. This one is for us, but I plan on added some to the shop in the next week or so.

I also made my way to a fabulous flea market that was going on for the holiday and I scored some wonderful finds including this old hand mixer. Which reminds me of a miniature version I had as a kid that I would play with whenever I went to my grandmas. I'm planning on hanging putting it in a shadow box and hanging it in the kitchen. More on the other fab finds later, happy Tuesday all!

Wrapping things up

Just a quick post to show off my little little ditty that Parker (my totally awesome friend/tattoo artist/pt designer for MM) did for me last week. For those not in the know, I'm a bit of a ray gun freak and have been wanting one tattooed on my massive bicip. :) It's not quite done yet and needs to have color added in the next few weeks, I'll be sure to post pics when it's fin. So I'm finishing up a few custom orders and trying despartely to get all my packaging and shipping done today so I can actually enjoy the long weekend. We have a huge bag of stuff that goes boom and I feel like a big kid. Have a safe but exciting 4th of July or weekend if your not in the states.

I Like You Too...

I love me some Amy Sedaris and her new book I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence just reafirms why this lady can make me laugh out loud just thinking about some of the things in this book. Filled with her wicked humor, mild drug references, zany hostess tips and some really tasty recipes. It's like a strange scrapbook from an eccentric aunt. Serioulsy a fun read!
Things I particually loved...

♥ The recipes are printed on rick rack trimmed recipe cards that are smuged and stained.
♥ Adult Proof Your House
Assume guests will snoop. Plan ahead and fill your medicine cabinet with marbles.

Speaking of fun stuff I love...

We've been on the lookout for a record player for our living room for quite sometime now. But finding that perfect mix of a stand/console has been proving to be an issue...until now that is! I found this Governor Entertainment Center from Crosley that is just what we had in mind and such a perfect touch for the room.
Happy Tuesday all! (although I keep thinking it's Wedsday) and a happy birthday Nathan and Leon. :)

Much love,
