so I’m, what, a bit over two weeks into twitter and I’ve already amassed 2081 followers. most of the referrals to this blog and bumblesea are coming from my twitter account. certainly beats hawking products on myspace.

weather’s great, zucchini’s growing. I’m getting everyone I can to play badminton tonight. can you tell I haven’t gotten any work done lately?

I want to grow a little moss garden but every time I attempt to it dies off. I’ve tried transplanting clumps and this method. what am I doing wrong?

planning to redo my entire studio room, it’s looking pretty trashed right now. some studio spaces found via flickr:

planet red by redredday

domi at my desk by castanet

getting lots of work done today, BAM!!! TACOS!

fun things that should be done soon: new business cards (now I can finally use my new slick business card holder), new photos of the line (the current photos are making me physically ill every time I look at them), the new acrylic line, press releases, photos of the studio, bam bam bam. I’m ready to start promoting and schmoozing journalists and bloggers, it’s what I do best. grace bonney, I swear one day you’re gonna love me.

tweaking the website, getting ready to have the new acrylic line produced. can’t sleep because of constant head/jaw aches. I’m pretty sure I’m developing TMJ since it runs in the family, this should be fun. wtityb right?
