Rain Gear Set Round 2

April 21, 2018     Like This Post!

Last year, I posted about rain gear I design for some small shops. After the stores punched numbers and calculated customer reports, they approached us for new rain designs because the rain collection had positive selling.

It was reassuring and exciting to hear, but it was slightly nerve-wracking to come up with designs even better than the first round. Just as last year, we had to create new rain boots, rain jackets, and umbrellas – all matching to each other.

Tarot To-Go

Tarot To-Go // April 3 – April 9

With this past weekend being both Easter and the start of Passover, it’s a good time to think about new beginnings here on Tarot To-Go. You know. Because bunnies and eggs symbolize rebirth and both Christianity and Judaism schedule these holidays around the first Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox, aka that first day of Spring, herald of new growth and a great time to get started on that garden in many places! Not Florida, though. I’m heading into my Bizzarro Winter, known to the rest of North America as Summer, where the asphalt seas boil hot enough to cook eggs and year round residents hole up inside their air conditioned safety zones doing hurricane preventing rain dances until October returns and it’s once again safe to be outdoors. Also, mosquitoes.

One Day In Philly

March 16, 2018     Like This Post!

A couple of months ago, I went on a day day trip to Philadelphia with friends. New York is about a two hour bus ride from Philly, but even knowing that, I only managed to go recently for the first time.

We picked a Saturday. Left at 9am and arrived back in NYC at 9pm. It was an entire exhausting day, but totally worth it.

Did y’all know that web searches for the phrase “how to be a strong woman” reached an all time high this past December? I’ll admit it — I was one of those folks asking Google that very question one week when I was feeling particularly down about myself. I had been letting the opinions of others cloud my judgement — particularly those of a certain flame who was projecting his own insecurities onto me. Turned out that, like Dorothy Gale, I’d been wearing those magical shoes the entire time.

I am a strong woman — always have been. I’ve got the women who came before me to thank for that.

During downtime, I recently browsed through my phone photos and realized I never shared the awesome graffiti I found in San Francisco when I visited during Thanksgiving. I can’t believe how fast time flew since then, and between you and me, I’m planning another trip for the summer to visit my brother again. His birthday is in June and I can’t think of a better excuse to plan a trip to see him again.
