SALE page now up

Yep, I finally got around to it. You can find some of my older pieces for pretty cheap here on the Bag Sale page.

I love making these now! As with all new items, they start out as a headache and end up just being really pretty and fun to do. So, here are a few to look at, or go HERE and see more.

Icky bug #2

The household has just survived yet another nasty virus, so I'm really behind in production. The new Obi Wallet is still in "demo" mode--which is to say, not in stores until I work all the kinks out, but if you'd like to be part of the demo crew, send an email to info(at)kimonomomo(dot)com and let me know which one you'd like. If you don't see any, I'm either making more or... something.

Sorry, brain is a bit fuzzy. We've all been on a liquid diet here for days and it's making us a bit loopy.

Juicy goodness

Maybe this whole matcha thing in the US is just a fad, but it's one fad I'm enjoying as long as it lasts. This stuff is super tasty, non-dairy, and full of good stuff. I'm sipping one as I type this and it's very yummy!

I've been told that Odwalla is now owned by CocaCola, but I can remember back in the day when they had a delivery driver who looked like a punk (pink spiky hair, that sort of thing) and laughed as she delivered the goods to little grocery stores in the area. That to me was a big part of the company--that the people involved in it enjoyed their work. As a business owner, I find that something to aspire to. You know, when I actually get around to hiring employees, that is.

Oh, Wish Pixie....

Just on the off chance anyone out there was wondering what I might like for a gift, a subscription to Kateigaho International Edition would be delightful, thanks!

Three beautiful things for today:

1. Making 5 onion soup (using only 4 today as I'm out of leeks) and knowing my bf who is working today (Saturday) is looking forward to coming home and eating some soup and baked potatoes with me. It just makes me feel warm & fuzzy inside.

2. It's been raining a bit this week. Normally we'd have snow, but as we've not had anything wet hitting the ground in weeks, this is a welcome bit of moisture. Very good for the garden.

3. I bought some Japanese Morning Glory seeds on ebay today. I have no idea if they'll do well in our funky climate, but I couldn't resist! They look like shibori to me.

Portland Kudos

First, to Suzanne at Donna & Toots in the up-and-coming Alberta district. If you're in Portland, check out her shop. Seriously cute clothing that anyone (including me!) can afford, and she makes it there in her shop.

Second, to the ladies at Twisted Locks Salon, also in Portland. I had a gift certificate that was going to expire soon so I called them up and got an appointment the next day. I plan on going back for some spa services next time! They were all super friendly and really fun to chat with.
