I packed up almost all of my jewelry supplies into a backpack yesterday and headed to the park to work on jewelry outside. I love the heat we're experiencing in Portland. I spread out my quilt and worked on jewelry for a good hour or so. The quilt was covered in supplies and new designs. Suddenly, automatic sprinklers (new-to-the-park automatic sprinklers, I think) started squirting me in the face and soaking everything. How I failed to notice the sprinkler head that was one foot from my quilt, I don't know.
Barry's on a solo camping trip in Olympic National Park, so I thought I'd take myself out to dinner and use up the rest of a gift certificate that I have to one of my favorite restaurants in town. Apparently this is a cursed idea. After walking quite a way to the bus stop in pretty extreme heat (this is code for I had visible sweat marks under my boobs), I realized I'd forgotten the gift certificate at home.
Both the bus I took to work and the bus I took from work malfunctioned today and had to stop mid-route. I'll admit I felt a bit heroic when I was able to help get the first bus moving again by dislodging a tree branch that had gotten caught in the back door.
All this is to say that things aren't going as planned here. The one thing that has gone off without a hitch that I'd planned on getting done while I had the place to myself was a sulu-design shop update. Considering my current batting average, I decided to start simple. Really, really simple. A few relistings of popular pieces, a couple new ones . There will be much more to follow in the upcoming days. Click images below or visit the entire shop here.
