I love my new dice bag!! It is beautifully sewn. I can't wait to use it at my next MTG meet up!
Zombies & Unicorns...
I was born the son of a poor black sharecropper.
Wait. Wrong story.
I was born, I have lived through a bunch of crap, I know a little about a lot of things, I have two worthless degrees (I R smrt) and I hate working for the man. I also love coffee, WWI gas mask troop photos and European chocolate. Oh and good tacos. That brings us here.
In 2012 my little brother died from a heroin overdose. We were a lot alike. At the time he was one of the few people that encouraged me to try doing what I loved instead of what was expected. It was a tough time for me and a lot of things changed. I could insert an immensely sad story about the emotionally abusive relationship I was in, but why dwell. I have better taste now.
However, it was during those 17 years of hades dwelling that I learned I had, for the majority of my life, suffered from depression and anxiety. Go genetics! Oh yeah, I'm old. Like, I went to school with Moses old. OK, maybe not that old, but I did have to walk to school everyday, through the snow, uphill both ways, naked. In a Dallas, TX suburb. I also fought dragons or mosquitoes. I forget.
That brings us back to here. Yeah, I know I said that earlier. Welcome to non-linear thinking. So, to keep myself out of jail or from having to dig a hole in the Vegas desert, I honed my sewing abilities. Besides, sewing voodoo dolls was fun. Especially when you got to set them on fire. Fire! FIRE!! Wait, forget I said that. No, really.
Most of the totes in the shop are made from re-claimed T-shirts. That's to say I pick them up at thrift stores & turn them into something I would use. Hopefully you will too. The purses are made from odd pieces of fabric I have picked up here & there. It is doubtful that you will see more than a couple in the same pattern. You will also find bits of this and that. You, my good people, are the recipients of what I sometimes come up with.
As for zombies & unicorns, well, Mom always referred to me as a zombie when I was a kid because mornings were never my thing. Unicorns are unicorns. In my world the faeries feed them too much cotton candy & once they've pooped their final glitter rainbow they end up behind the barn. Yeah, don't ask. Really.
I've been sewing & doing cross stitch for as long as I can remember. My great grandmother taught me when I was fairly young. I'm not quite right, but that's what makes me awesome. Really, really awesome!
He does what I tell him. Not really. He's the other half and he makes most of the jars you see in the shop.
