hot sauce

finally started packing.we are moving in 11 days and i have 2 boxes packed. i guess you could say it's officially crunch time. i was going through some cupboards and found these hot sauce bottles. i was planning on thinking of a project to do with them but, now looking at them i realize i have a much bigger problem on my hands than possible bad art. i have a full blown addiction. for years i have joked about it but now i'm saving the empty bottles! come on this is out of control. it's like i've gotten to the stage where i can't bear to part with the container that once held my beloved sauce. i'm not sure what i plan to do with this information.if you have any ideas please let me know.

valentine's eve

dear diary,
what a day it has been. how do you say "roller coaster of emotions"? ohh wait i just said it. long story short the people who made and host our site are totall immoral unethical penny pinchers. we've known this for a while now but, not until today did it really hurt. we were fortunate enough to be on dailycandy deals today and when we started getting more orders than we have in awhile we were stoked. then a few minutes later our site wouldn't load. what? we called the company who built our site and hosts it as well. they basically told us that we hadn't signed a yearly maintenance contract (never heard of it until today) with them so their hands were tied. uh, what no they're not?! we asked what the maintenance contract was and apparently it's super reasonable at a minimum cost of $15,000. per year. what is wrong with these people. then the owner of the company preceeded to tell us he hadn't spoke to us in 4-5 years as if that has anything to do with anything. long story short after having a very stressed 5 hours they called us and decided they would this one time only charge us hourly to look at it. then we could decide what to do in the future. the problem was fixed within seconds, but not until we agreed to pay them a minimum of $555.00. we're thankful that the site is up and running but sad tht there are people like that out there in the world. even more sad that we are in business with them. you would think that the problem was so minimal they wouldn't charge us right? doesn't look to be the case. i guess this is to be continued,,,,

got these cute envelopes in chinatown when we were in new york last week. they're for chinese new year. rediscovered an old favorite website and haven't been able to get away from it. it's called homestar runner and it's awesome.
there's tons of animation that is hilarious. i highly suggest checking it out but beware it is totally addicting.

sugar sugar

i'm really excited about all the baking we've been doing. we have decided to try out some new color combos and i think they look pretty awesome. the donuts are looking pretty tastey too. it's a lot of work and i'm super thankful we have such a great team.

hopefully we get everything up on the site in the next day cuz we really need to start packing. i guess i should be more stressed but being a professional procrastinator i use pressure to my advantage. it's weird to think that in a couple of weeks we'll be back in san francisco. i haven't been able to get too excited yet because there has been so much to do. (note to self:make peter's valentine)

cactus love

when we were in tucson we went and visited the saguaro cactus's. this is one of my most favorite places in the world. it is truly a magical place. they have such personality. i kept thinking the cactus's come alive at night when all the humans are gone.(you know like in the movie manequin) they probably talk about how weird the humans were that day. then before the humans return they decide what pose they are going to do for that day.

new stuffs

we've been working really hard to get some new stuff on the site. i think i'm going to put some cards up that i made a while ago. i'm so obsessed with skulls right now. they are so cool. my family has been making some cool skull/day of the dead art too. we're going to be putting some of their stuff as well. it's all really cool and exciting stuff. if you put all of our work together we could be a traveling craft fair. seriously that's an awesome business idea. we could go from city to city selling our wares.
