thrifter extraordinaire returns!

So, it's been about 3 years since my last post. I'm pretty bad at this whole blogging thing. Here's hoping I can get back into the swing of things. Now that I'm away from family and friends thanks to the joys of being a military spouse, I figured I should start this blog up again to stay in touch. I give you a glimpse of the wonderful owl sweater knit last March. Stay tuned for more posts involving thrifting, knitting, and awesomeness!

Sarah Palin does not speak for me!

Last Sunday I attended a rally with over 300 Rochester women. We united to spread the message that Sarah Palin does not speak for us. The event was organized in just three days. Imagine the numbers if we had a week to organize. I am so glad I attended this amazing event, as it served to unite and give hope for change.

hardcore printing

When it comes to printing, Rachael and I don't mess around. We started printing around 1pm on Saturday and ended at 5am Sunday. Yes folks, that's 16 hours of printing...well 15 hours and a delicious lunch. We even got to see the sunrise on our way to back to Rochester. Despite the insanely long day, it was actually pretty fun. There were plenty of impromptu dance sessions and singing to make up for the irritability and swollen hands! After 3000 runs yesterday, added to the 3000 Rachael finished earlier, calendar printing is finished. And I have to say, it looks AMAZING! You can check it out at Ink + Wit or Pistachio Press. Buy some for those favorite people in your life!

dishes galore!

Here are the promised pictures of my fabulous 82-piece dinnerware set- purchased for only $19.50! The set includes serving dishes, berry bowls, soup bowls, dinner plates, saucers, cups, bread plates, and a cute little sugar bowl. Thanks to Rachael for pointing them out and talking me into buying them (though it obviously didn't take much persuasion)!!

marathon printing

Rachael and I spent over 8 hours yesterday letterpressing greeting cards for the upcoming secondstorie} indie market. The cards are simply fabulous!! Those in the area should stop by Friday or Saturday and check out all Pistachio Press has to offer!
