holy cow!
three days of one-of-a-kind sale goodness!

I've been doing inventory and photographing and photoshopping and getting ready for a shop update... but first we need to make some room. SO, I'm offering a major 3 day sale.

I've marked down prices in the etsy shop, which would be cool enough, but I'm also upping the ante. How so?
Oh, like so...

Buy 1 item, get free shipping.
Buy 2 or more items, get one the lowest priced item for free.
Buy 4 or more items and not only do you get one item for free, but you'll also get free shipping!


all you need to do is fill your cart and complete your order; make sure to write "THREEDAY" in the message to seller section at check out, and proceed to PayPal to complete the sale. I will refund the overage once I get notice of payment.

Sale ends Midnight on Sunday, and all orders will ship Monday!

xoxo, dana

Zoo Love

and now for a random zoo wrap up...

the rock hyrax. 
the absolute best thing at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. 
we spend hours just watching him do, well not much. 
google him. 
love him. 

the aviary... amazing

i call this donkey Oreo-Donkey. 
that's probably not the technical name for this animal, but it makes sense. 

the goat petting and brushing area. goats are awesome. 
these particular goats are SO patient... kids literally climb on them and they're just like "what evs".

Can barely concentrate...

We're going to see Neko Case tonight.

I've never been able to see her play before... I feel I will be changed a little tonight ( as I have been by They Might Be Giants and Andrew Bird, and really, between the 3 of them, I think you have me, my art & my dreams in musical form).

I LOVE Neko Case.
Her voice, her lyrics, the fact that by all accounts she's a genuinely nice person.

I have a lot of work to get done today, before the show, but I'm doing it with Neko on permanent rotation on the studio iPod.

Who do YOU listen to that illustrates you?

Stripey PJs, the ipod set on shuffle, knitting up a storm.

Lots of new projects coming up... Stay tuned!

bad dog

he LIVES to shred tissues. it's his only "bad" habit. i'll find them anywhere and hoard them, and then find a quiet spot to shred them. i caught him with this shredded stash, today.
