I Made a Sale!!

I'm super excited because I made my first sale on Etsy!! I sold two of my Scrub-a-Dub Wash Mitts and gave them one free because of my current promotion in honor of the baby Elliette's birth.

More people have been discovering my shop and I hope that more sales aren't too far behind!!

So if you haven't checked out my store yet, you should :)

Also, i got a bunch of vintage fabric from my Grandma Perkins yesterday, so cool new stuff should be available in my shop soon!

Elliette is Bornded

I am happy to annouce that my first niece, Elliette Olivia Nelson, arrived at 12:35 ish am on Tuesday August 12. I was waiting for her parents to post the first pics of her before I put mine up.

She is so cute and I can't wait to have some cute kids of my own. Here are our pictures from when we went to visit Justin, Melissa and Elliette in the hospital.

Doesn't he look like a natural?

Organic or not

When I first heard the term "organic" when applied to food my brain threw up all over the inside of my skull. Now I get the twitches whenever I hear the term 'organically grown'.
This reaction is similar to how I reacted when I found out that some people linked immunizations with autism. Actually, that's not the stupid part. The stupid part is that a large group of people actually decided not to immunize their children.
Most recently I've had deal with the retard division of CAVE (Citizens Against Virtually Everything). As most of you know I kill mosquitoes, and that entails fogging, i.e. put a chemical in the air to kill the adult mosquitoes. A very surreal experience, but all too common for me, was when I had a conversation with a lady that insisted that West Nile was made up, cancer and any disease can be avoided/cured via a healthy diet, and that salmonella/e. coli was a conspiracy by the government to take control of the national food supply (where did all the tomatoes go?). Or how about the guy that claims that I made him dumber even though I never came within a block of his house, or the people that claim I'm responsible for their lackadaisical pet coughing blood when I haven't even been on that side of city.

In short:
Organic food SUCKS! (yes please, I love bugs with my veggies)
Flouridated water will NOT cause you to become susceptible to mind control
Polio/Measles/Mumps/Rubella/etc/etc=BAD, Immunizations=GOOD
If mosquito fog can't kill anything bigger than a mosquito, then it isn't going to hurt you.

Have you seen this man?

As you may have noticed from our anniversary post, Chris has grown a goatee. To be honest I didn't really like it at first, but I came to grow quite fond of it. Soon enough, it came to drive Chris crazy, so he decided to shave it off.

But before he did, I asked him to let me have a little fun with potential facial hair that he'll probably never grow. . .ever. Take a look and vote in the poll for the one you like best.

First up is Cowboy or Biker Chris. Either way you slice it, he's rough, he's tough and he won't take crap from anybody. Can you say, "Hasta La Vista Baby!"

This is 1970's Salesman Chris. Add a fat tie and a snazzy plaid polyester suit and he'll be giving you Saturday Night fever!

This is Artsy Chris. Add a beret, paint pallet and perhaps a black turtleneck and you've got the epitome of classical artistic sophistication. Oui, Oui!

Hey Dudes and Dude-ettes! I'm surfer Chris, come catch a wave with me, it'll be totally radical!

This is Everyday Totally Awesome Chris. My personal favorite :)

So vote for the one you like best and maybe he'll grow it. No promises though.
