We got back from a wonderful, relaxing visit with Barry's parents in Richmond a couple days ago, and life has felt pretty crazy ever since. First, there was the E. coli contamination of the water source for the part of Portland in which we live. Cool. Nothing like having to wait 'til you get to work to brush your teeth. Then Barry and I went and made an offer on a loft and proceeded to stress out about everything we could possibly think of in regard to owning our first home. Between twisting my hair and picking at my cuticles (doesn't everyone do that when they're stressed?) I also had to squeeze in some time to work with the new beads I picked up in Richmond. They're so good that I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. And then I heard about cyber Monday. I had no idea that the Monday after Thanksgiving was the day for on-line shopping. So I got swept up in the "news" (which is what often happens when a morning of excessive coffee drinking and npr-listening goes on for too long) and felt the need to update the sulu-design shop, all holiday-ish.
The new styles above are all in the shop now and the styles below have been restocked (click images for links to listings):
I hope those of you in the U.S. had a great Thanksgiving and that each and every one of you are well.
