I’m still trying to catch up from the last couple months, not to mention catch my breath!
Around mid August, before things really got crazy, I decided to take on a little crafty fabric recycling project. I had two tank tops in the same style that were getting really worn out in the arm pit area, and a sports bra that was also getting a little worn out and just needed some extra reinforcement. The final product, a sports tank top, is great and I’ve already worn it to a couple dance classes. Haven’t popped a seam yet!
At the end of August, beginning of September, My Colorado BFF, Megan Q, came out for our 3rd San Francisco Zine Fest. We had a great time shopping in the Mission, frolicking on the beach, eating many tasty treats, and of course, rocking our table as The Calico Umbrella Collective at the SFZF 2011! We both had new zines (more about that coming soon), and also hosted our 1st SFZF forum. We got a good-sized group of artists to discuss productivity and time-management skills. We were very excited to share our table with KokoroKara and Pinup Brooches this year. They are both lovely artists and friends!
The next weekend, my brother Geoff came out for a quick visit. In one day, we went from Ocean Beach to the Bay and several places in between, making the mandatory stops at Kid Robot and Upper Playground. And Geoff managed to get us ground-level seats for the Giants vs. Dodgers game! We also delighted in delicious dim sum downtown, Mission burritos, and sore feet!
In between guests and work and what not, I celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend Matt and my 2 year anniversary with this amazing city!
My internship as the ODC Dance Jam intern, or, “Jam Sister,” got into full swing mode with the audition, first meetings, and rehearsals starting.
I’m working on the look and feel of this site, and tying together my other online outlets in a cohesive manner. Any feedback is appreciated!
