this isn’t going to be a pretty post as i haven’t any arty imagery to share today.  sorry.  too busy trying not to stress on the little one starting first grade at a new school AND riding a big huge bus all by himself (can you feel the butterflies in my tummy?).  plus zine.  plus trying to finish six plus two assemblages.  plus crazy order week.  plus about 78 other things.  to make up for it, i have found this fun little site for you while drinking a chilled bottle of their organic iced green (the inside of the cap commanded me to visit their site for a tea leaf reading).  go have your tea leaves read at tazo.com.  my experience was somewhat scaring but i’m sure yours will be quite thrilling.

tazo has a cool tea reading thing on their site

(apparently sir tazo thinks i would not look good in harem pants.  i think that’s mean.  but at the same time, probably true.)

so first order of biz… i was offered space at the alberta street fair (9/19, 11-6pm) .  if you’re in the portland area and want to share a spot, let me know — great opportunity but bad timing for me as i don’t have much available due to a few recent sales.  if you’re from anywhere near here, you know it’s a big, fun art extravaganza (WAY bigger and better than last thursday events).  if you’re not familiar: this is the 12th annual alberta street fair.  they close the whole dang street down and jam pack the entire area to the brim with art, music, food and drink.  there is even a parade.

okay, so i warned you before and i’m shameless… i’m sponsoring the “alicia needs a sewing machine” fund.  not only do i need a sewing machine, but september is national sewing month (i learned that while drooling over my 300ish stitch machine so figured i’d share the tidbit that i was previously unaware of).  as such, i’m offering four digital collage sheets from my site for $10 for an unspecified duration of time (probably a week).  to a lot of you this means nothing, which is totally fine and dandy so please just skip ahead to the next paragraph, but since i sell dozens most weeks, this is a cool deal to some (i’m guessing).  free shipping (they are digital) and any sheets qualify, even those that don’t claim to be digital.  just paypal me the ten bucks (or request an invoice) and i’ll send to you PNGs, PDFs, JPGs, flattened PSDs — whatever you want.  just specify what sheets and what format and i’ll email them within a day.  they were designed for my zero margin printer so if yours isn’t that fancy i can shrink them a smidge so nothing gets cut off — just let me know that too.  email: hi at altered bits dot com.  shameless, i know… but i need the ability to sew for KC’s workshop and my 1907 singer is a tad too antiquated to get anything other than a boring ol’ straight line out of it and even then it’s sometimes iffy.  (and i reiterate, boring. straight.)

this paragraph exists only for those i ordered to skip head.

oh wait.  i do have a photo to share.  micro peek at a side view of one of my newest books i’ve been playing with this week between bouts of stress and mad zine designing.  there are lots of pockets and doors and secret little holes.  (shh!)
