Why Wacky Tuna?

About 6 years ago, my husband Pj and I were watching a show on Discovery Channel about tuna. It might have been Tuna Wranglers or something like that. Well, the fellas had a big catch of fish and they brought them to a station to weigh the catch. To do this, they weigh a portion of the catch and average it out to figure out how much to charge for the whole shebang. How does one weigh a tuna fish? They're big and slippery and typically don't enjoy sitting still while out of the water. To get the fish to relax, they cover their eyes with a cloth and give them a little pat on their sides and suddenly, the fish feel calm and relaxed and sit still long enough to be weighed.

When I go into a craft store, I am very much like a slippery tuna. I get excited, run all over the place and forget why I came to the store, resulting in Pj having to wrangle me, calm me down and get me out of there. He started covering my eyes, patting my back and calling me a "wacky tuna". The name stuck and now he just calls me "Tuna"

Since my attentions cannot be easily directed towards one type of item, I have opened Wacky Tuna here on etsy, where you will find all of my short bursts of attention in the form of painting, felt, Lucite, resin, sewing, crochet and whatever else I dream up that day. Since I bounce from one thing to the next and am very difficult to wrangle, most things will be very limited until I feel the urge to make another one. IMy sewing machine is never put away and my craft room is all organized with beads, vintage buttons, fake fruit and novelty print fabrics.

Wacky Tuna will also include some of Pj's handmades. Pj leans more towards manly and rugged things (renaissance faire type of things) but he's making some beautiful vintagey things for Wacky Tuna too, including his much loved hair pin cases and new leather travel sewing kits that I've been begging him to design for me. Many of the things in the shop have his awesomeness applied to them as he tests things out to make them practical, durable and amazing. I make it pretty, Pj makes it function. We're a great team!
