Let's face it, being a softie is hard work. Do you think it is easy looking cute and vulnerable allll the time? So they like to relax and loosen up their strings in this lovely hot tub!

Timmie disguised as a French man!

To avoid paparazzi after his recent press, Timmie has been seen around town wearing this disguise. When reached for comment he said,"Je suis désolé que je ne parle pas anglais"

Sources say the tag dangling from his bottom was a dead give away to his true identity!

Violetta's new rock n' roll life...

Here she is hanging out with Metallica in Baltimore! Thanks to Anthony for the pics!

Update: After touring the country with Metallica, Violetta settled down and became a best friend to a new baby girl.

I found this cannister today (that Timmie is kindly modeling) which combines three of my obsessions: 1. stainless steel. 2. storage 3.apples!

Life is grand.

U.K. here I come!

I will be visiting London,Manchester and Glasgow in a couple of weeks. In London I will have the most days- the 28-June 1 and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of which areas which would be best to find a hotel in and in general which areas I should make sure to see and fun things to do. I've been to London a couple times before, so I've already hit the major museums and touristy areas. So if you have any artsy fartsy suggestions I'm all ears :)

mp wallet!

mp wallet!, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

I made a wallet all by myself! And made lots o' mistakes! Like not sewing the closing tab in between the fabrics...and making the pocket too small..and the stitching is craptactular as usual...but i'm excited!

I made it out of brown felt and cotton. I think the next time I won't use felt because i think that felt gets damaged easily. Is that true? Does it makes little fuzz balls on the surface? I guess time will tell.

So far I have:
1. Traced image onto screen
2. masked off the areas that won't get printed
