Stuff and things...

This photo makes me very happy. While I know that my photography on my Etsy site can still use a lot of work, every once in a while, I get a gem like this one. True, it doesn't show much of the actual item, but I'm beginning to notice that sometimes, having a teaser-style pic is actually BETTER than having a normal pic. It seems to drive people to click on it. :)

In other news, there's still something wrong with the automated postal center in the downtown post office. So I guess I'm running over to Ballard again tonight. I suppose I can keep my fingers crossed for another sale or two, so that it's not just a trip for a single package.

We've also gotta run to Kinko's at some point, so that Jerome can get his last project of this quarter printed. He still has to go to a couple more classes, but at least everything else is already turned in. Then he gets three weeks off school... lucky...

Starting to try to figure out how I'm going to get a week's worth of winter clothes into a single small suitcase, and wondering whether I will need to pack skirts or jeans, because I still am not sure if we're going to be able to get tattoos next week... so I'm hoping Candace gets back to me soon! (If not, then I'll just try to save the money and we can start looking for an artist out here... :) )

And in other other news, I will never get sick of Billy Idol's music. *rocks out*

My friend Mike swears by Lucky Devil on Capitol Hill. I was planning on going there for my next tattoo but have been flaking on it for the past year and a half.

Some of Mike's tattoos can be seen in my flickr stream if you want an idea of the quality he goes for. I'll also see him this Saturday & see if he has any other recommendations--if your local artist back home isn't around, that is :)

Man, I just don't think there's a single place that we have heard BAD stuff about. There are a lot of really talented artists up here, that's for sure!

(In Illinois, it was much more of a crap shoot. There were good artists at the shops where we followed our artist, but there were a lot of really BAD artists in the area too!)
