For the love of tape.

There's a new group on Flickr started by flickrer Warm n' Fuzzy dedicated to decorative tapes.

You can find a nice selection of tape at and of course on Ebay where I usually find my tapes.

Slight Detour...

gluttony at its finest!, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

So Sal and I were on our merry way to Pennsylvania Dutch country to see some Amish peeps and buy some wooden things from them and maybe a pie, or a couple of pies, or a baker's dozen o' pies but then it started raining reeeeeally hard. We were on the NJ turnpike and had to decide if we were going to continue on to Penn. and risk not seeing anyone out but a couple of wet cows or gamble all the money we had in our pockets in Atlantic City. Hmm.. it was almost an ethical issue...good wholesome pureness vs. man made gambling vice laden hell.

As you can see by the glutonous photo above - we ended up choosing A.C.

We came home with 12 cents, some pocket lint and a belly full of sugar. Good Times.

I'm an aunt!

My brother is now a proud father of a cute kitten named Travis. Travis is seen here doing the headcruncher maneuver on his new playmate monsieur dogbee. oui! oui!

I've been shopping...

So I decided to invest my earnings from the fair by purchasing some work from other independent designers. I purchased the wallet above from three green apples, this limited edition dish(bottom) from Lena Corwin and this polka dot pocket journal from seedpod. I already own 2 of Three Green Apples wallets (I've been using them as wall art for now) but that Japanese owl print was irresistible! She must think I'm a nut job!

I'm confused...

So you can see my blog posts on LiveJournal? How does that work? If someone comments on it how can I see it? would it show up on the main blog? Someone enlighten me. Mucho Gracias.

Renegade Tomorrow!!! aaaaahhhhh

If you are in the area come on down to the Renegade Craft Fair in Williamsburg in the lovely borough of Brooklyn where I was born and raised from lovely italian farmer immigrant parents (who are also crafty) and I will be table #43 and I will probably be sweating because it is supposed to be 90 degrees but don't worry because I will drink lots of liquids and I won't pass out.

Stalking the U.P.S. dude...

Right now I am waiting by the window like a doggy for the UPS truck to come on by. I am expecting my first T-shirts (timmie w/ balloon)!. It is over a week late with no explanation from the company (grr). They ignored my email for a tracking #. Then after I called them they finally emailed it to me. They had mailed the package out the day after I was expecting it on my doorstep and after I wrote them an email about where is it? Does anyone happen to know any good T-shirt silkscreeners in Brooklyn or Manhattan?

By chance today I found the perfect yarn to make this sheepy inspired by ones in saw in a london window.

...and I'm back.

i'm here, originally uploaded by m patrizio.

I've safely landed back in the u.s. of a. from a lovely adventure in the U.K.. Fuzzy Bunny and I accompanied my brother to go check out some David Gilmour (formerly of Pink Floyd) shows in Glasgow, Manchester and London.

I've never seen so many sheep in my whole life! I was hoping to take a picture with one of them or even a herd but unfortunately didn't get a chance. Northern England is so beautiful, I just wanted to throw myself down the lush green hills (carefully of course) and roll around all day. No rolling around actually occurred because we were on a tight schedule.Boo-Hoo.

Here are the highlights:
1. I saw a hedgehog close-up! They are so cute! I wanted to put one in my luggage. I'm sure the customs agents would have loved that!
2. The amazingly green rolling hills, just imagine where the teletubbies was just like that!
3. The boat ride from westminster to greenwich on the river Thames suggested by a lovely internet buddy!
4. Also suggested by one of you sweet peeps was a visit to brick lane/shoreditch near the Spitalfields market! I loved this so much! It was exactly what I was looking for. The quaint artsy shops reminded me of Park Slope,Dumbo and Williamsburg in Brooklyn which are my favorite spots around NYC!

Here you can view some of my pictures from the trip -------> CLICK HERE

So for the next 2 weeks I need to haul arse and get some goods ready for the renegade fair.

Thanks to Max,Cocoakoala,and Sharon for the tips!
