WHEW! What a weekend.

(photo credit: My sister, Kim Yamagiwa! Suzanne is doing the Safety Dance...)

The Phinney Ridge Winter Festival and Craft Fair is now over, and Suzanne and I had an absolute blast. We met a ton of awesome folks. The funniest thing I heard was out of the mouth of a ... maybe 7 year old (?) girl shouting "I LOVE CARBS!" WTF. I sure as hell didn't know what carbs were when I was 7. She said her favorite was crackers. I think Suzanne and I will have to do a show with that theme in mind someday... HILARIOUS. A couple of high-points for me: a mom and her little boy came back to our table because she said he had a question for me. He asked "what is his name?" pointing to one of my characters (how cool is that?) His mom yelled "THAT is your question!? We came all the way down 3 flights of stairs for that?!" It was adorable. Another highpoint, was a woman came by to tell Suzanne and I that a lot of people really enjoyed our show at Fresh Flours and took the time to 'look' at our work. She said she missed the show when it came down, and just wanted to let us know and tell us that. That made my day. Here is a Special THANKS to Dev for helping me build my displays and package stuff, and to my folks my sister Kim and our friends who always find a way to make it out to see us and show their support.

Here is a "SHOUT OUT" to our friend Kristy who gave us this month to have a show @ the Starbucks in Fremont! There won't be an opening reception, but it will be up for the entire month of December. Try to check it out if you happen to be in the area!

And, lastly... I finally go into surgery tomorrow morning to get the polyp dude OUT. If this proceedure goes haywire, and I'm left infertile, my co-worker friend offered to be our baby "oven", so, uh.. at least I got that going for me. Wish me luck.

FYI, I totally fucked something up to the link to my PAINTINGS page so it doesn't work anymore. I'll get that fixed... but I DID update my PLUSH page so there a few new things look at. Enjoy.
