On Vacation

Just a quick post to say that Tiny Dino Studios will be on vacation while I am out of town (see previous post). I have no clear picture of exactly how long I will be gone. However, everything, including the sale I had running, will resume once I return.

Now, it is getting late and I still have an embarrassing amount of packing to do! Have fun while I am gone.

Do something that really makes you feel alive.

And think of my family if you can spare a moment. We are losing one of the best of us.

Sunday Lists

1. I am a list-maker
2. I think the extra-long, impossible to finish to-do list is the companion of any self-employed person.
3. Today I am making my “First Show To-Do List”.
4. I am estimating it will be about three pages long.
5. I have plenty of time.
6. The show is a month away.
7. On October 22nd at Pachamama’s in Lawrence, KS from 10am to 4pm.
8. It looks like I will be working overtime at the day job for most of October.
9. This may complicate things.
10. I will be bringing my knitting to work.
11. I have a yellow mitten in my purse right now.
12. But it’s Sunday morning, which means there will be many in for breakfast.
13. So my mitten will sit, until I get home, do the dishes, do yoga and take a shower.
14. It should only take an hour or so to finish up.
15. It is the second yellow mitten which means one more project done.
16. Only 764,324,891 more to go.
17. That wasn’t a complaint.
18. I am loving my journey to unemployment.

. . .And We’re Off!

Chances are, if you are here right now, you know me. You know me and are wondering what the heck dinosaurs have to do with my fiber obsession. The truth? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I just happen to be tripping over toy dinosaurs in my apartment constantly, because I have a four year-old son. He has been obsessed with dinos for half of his short little life. Plus, it’s fun. Little neon dinosaurs are fun, and they will be even more fun when I start dressing them up like sheep.

Now that we have established why you are here, it is time to tackle why I am. It’s simple: I am starting a business. I am going to sell yarn and roving and perhaps any number of other things. Patterns maybe. Certain services. There’s one catch though. Have you caught on to my tense yet? I’ll give you a hint: my tense communicates intention. It means that I will start a business, but I have not actually done so yes.

I mean, I have a name and an idea and most of a business model, but there are a few things I am sorely lacking: a degree, experience, an extrovert’s nature, a tax ID. You lucky folks are here to watch me learn, fail, panic, and eventually gain each and every one of the aforementioned and more. Then, on July 1st, 2011, I will officially be open for business.

It’s going to be an adventure.
