Etsy Finds

More fun finds for my new place!


Today's brief post is about ... what else could it be? NINJAS!!!

If you are feeling very ninja-y you can check out the Official Ninja Web page here,
which has amazing words of wisdom like,

"Ninjas can kill anyone they want! Ninjas cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time."

OR you can go here and take the ultimate ninja quiz, are you a good or a bad ninja?

My results are disappointing...

But I'm certain that the results were rigged.... :(

Burt Reynolds

I feel like shopping. On modcloth. Shop with me?

Does Chevy need a Burt Reynold's chew toy? Yes, he does.

I love the shape of this dress. I WANT!

And this collar is amazing!

Mystery Bag

The Longchamp mystery has been solved!!

I may just be really late to the party- but I've been seeing this bag EVERYWHERE and on EVERY girl in New York and even girls here, and I did not know why or what the deal was with it, so I finally searched online today and found what it is. It's a Longchamp bag! And I'm not so sure what the big fuss about it is, so I'm curious to know- do any of you have this bag, and why is it so amazing? for 100-250 $ it's not a cheap purchase. I do know that it folds up into a little rectangle after you use it. And it comes in a bunch of different colors. But every girl I see with it tends to be fashionable to some extent- so it must be a fashionable bag. See that deductive reasoning there? Genius.

So tell me. What's the big deal?

I got sick on Monday with God knows what- and didn't get to do a ton of things I wanted to. I did get to go to the park and to Maker Faire this weekend, and I will update with pictures of that later, but for now I will leave you with this.

Just the cutest mother and son picture ever. It's cold in SF sometimes. Apparently this is the coldest April and May in 12 years. I'm okay with that because I thought it was actually pretty nice.

Thank you ALL so much for all of your comments!!!I have read each one of them and I am so grateful for your interest! Thank you also to my new followers- I'm so excited that you've decided to welcome me into your blog circles!

I have a winner for the giveaway!

Drumroll please....

I♥thesecrazykids from Nebraska, YOU WIN!!!

Thank you to everyone else who entered, and please stay tuned, because I feel like maybe I will do a giveaway once a month. I want to do something for the glorious followers I've just acquird. What do you think about that? YEA! For you all who did not win, don't worry- I will be putting plenty of ninja robot bunnies online at etsy- for my tentative shop open date of June 1st.

I made a friend for my calculator robot- who is having a complicated relationship with my neighbor. :) This is a much larger ninja than the previous ninjas (seen here) These will be put up on my etsy as well. Not the emotional calculator, the ninja crocheted thing I mean.

OKAY- So thank you! Don't be a stranger! And I'm off to the Maker Faire Bay Area this weekend and I will come back next week with tons of pictures of the amazing things I run into. Adam Savage from Mythbusters will be there so I am PUMPED!

Jump to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Post here or scroll down. <3

So a couple things. First, I was thinking about this giveaway and how once upon a time in like 2nd or 3rd grade- I participated in a giveaway sort of homemade swap for my class in school. I made a huge chocolate cake with my mom with sprinkles and was really proud of it. I received a piece of construction paper with black acrylic paint smeared all over it. And I cried. I remember thinking how horrible that child was- to not even try. And even now- I wish I could remember who gave that to me so I could defriend them on facebook! Just joking, but seriously- that was traumatic.

Also, Here's some stuff from Etsy.

Perusing through etsy- wanted to see if this worked!!! These aren't my items- these are items I've "hearted" for our new apartment :) But I'm trying to get the hang of etsy before I open up shop! Stay tuned!

Quote of the Day

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing" - Helen Keller

Mr. Rockit is in Mexico for work. Isn't that funny to say? So I had lunch alone and started on my giveaway project. Also- I love my new Kate Spade bag Mr. Rockit got for me. :)

Happy Spring!

Everyone is wearing skirts at the office today and it makes it feel so much more like spring!!
This weekend we started unpacking and setting things up.

We also went to an amazing dog park up in Corona Heights and the view was amazing. Chevy had a great time. Today is his first day with us out all day long and we set up a ustream account to watch him while we are gone. He HOWLED for the first time. Oh boy. I really hope our neighbors don't kill us, we are going to have to really work on that- poor thing was so lonely. But we did interview a dog walker this weekend who seemed promising, so hopefully Chevy's lonely but won't last long.

Craft room is under way! Pictures soon!
