My crafting closet is bursting at the seams and I had to face the facts when the other day an employee pointed out (um, Jordan you’ve had this stuff for years and we never use it. ) I guess that means it is time for a studio sale! If you are in San Francisco stop by next Wednesday afternoon. We’re basically getting rid of all the rad stuff I’ve bought over the last few years plus lots of craft supplies (new and gently used) plus pinatas, vintage ephemera, disco balls, and other random stuff. Let’s do it!
Studio Sale | Oh Happy Day Studio 3171 21st Street San Francisco | Wednesday, April 23, 2014 | 4pm-7pm

I started a little tumblr called Pictures of People Taking Pictures of my Car. The little Fiat gets photographed a billion times a day and at some point I started taking pictures of people taking pictures until I had a decent collection going. It’s silly but it makes me laugh and now I have a place to put my photos.
ps: We filmed a little commercial for Ebay last month. It’s filled with things we actually bought from Ebay (like the car!) I’ve heard you can see it on Youtube as a commercial but for anyone that is curious you can see them right here. It was really fun to make and I love how they turned out.
Years ago, when Paul and I met, we made a list of places we wanted to travel to. Number 2 on that list was Australia. (The first was France, and we ended up moving there.) I had started noticing all the amazing designers and brands coming out of Australia and I realized there was something cool going on down there and I wanted to see more of it. So I was over the moon when my friends at Go Mighty said that they were putting together a really cool project with Tourism Australia and Air New Zealand. I feel super lucky to be going with 10 other bloggers to Australia where we are going to check some things off our life lists and share our experiences over at Go Mighty.
I’ve never been to Australia and have just started to do some research. Do you have any places you recommend in Sydney and Melbourne? Especially great places to eat and places to shop. When I travel I like to go to party supply shops and office supply shops, sometimes the practical stuff is the prettiest without even trying. Also, my 15 year old self is very interested in making out with Jim from The Man from Snowy River. How do we make that life list goal happen?
A huge thanks to Tourism Australia, Air New Zealand and Go Mighty for making this adventure possible. If a trip Down Under is a dream you’ve had, please be sure to check out the Tourism Australia site for all sorts of information about Australia; in addition, Tourism Australia, Air New Zealand and Go Mighty are running two additional campaigns to help make your dream come true in 2014: the first, Fill-A-Plane, where you can sign up to be one of 322 people to get a special discount on air travel for folks who take the pledge to travel to Australia next year; the second, “Win a Wild Card ticket to Australia,” for a chance to win a trip to Australia, by simply becoming a member of Go Mighty and adding your wildest Australia-based dreams. You can check out all the details here.
