The freak winter storm that blew through Baltimore yesterday canceled some Saturday night Halloween plans I'm sure, and left millions without power farther north. Luckily, there was no accumulation here and it had already tapered into rain by nightfall. But seriously- snow in October?! At least I got a chance to sleep in this weekend. : )

Elvis, my little gray buddy of 14 years, passed on today. She was a wonderful and social bird who loved road trips, jazz music, and dinner parties. I will miss her dearly. A big thanks to the folks over at Glen Burnie Animal Hospital who were so kind and generous in their care for her today. See you next lifetime buddy : )
I'm super excited to announce that Open Eyes Press will be vending at this year's Holiday Heap, woohoo! This amazing show is organized by the Charm City Craft Mafia, and takes place in the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore City. I'm very excited to be a part of it, and can't wait to see everyone there!

We had a really great time with everyone at Festival on the Hill last Saturday. The weather was beautiful, and there were so many cool things to see (including a performance by the Catonsville High School Steel Drum Band which was AMAZING!). We hope to be back again next year. : )

I recently bought a few comic books from the 60's and 70's with the idea in mind of making them into pinback buttons. The pages contain so many great colors and graphics, it's really a shame to let them go to waste. Now they are pin-able works of art!
