Look at us, in the VIP section! Wooo! You see here:
Bo of Larcus
Melissa of Snitches Get Stitches and Coffin Color
Xiane of Xiane ThreeRavens and Coffin Color!

This was the first time that any of us had been to the Roller Derby, and it was a blast! The Charlotte team kicked butt, although they were narrowly defeated at the end of the bout. The best part, though?

MY MONKEYSIS was a guest referee! WOOOOOOO! [she's usually reffing with DC Rollergirl, but I hear that Charm City will be hearing the dulcet strains of her glowing whistle soon!]

It was a damn good time and we will definitely be going back. We actually saw quite a few people we knew in one way or another, particularly from vending at Snug Harbor. It was great!

I'd recommend checking out your local roller derby team[s], because it really is a blast, and the derby girls are a great inspiration to anyone interested in DIY. Seriously.

"Where have you been?"

Hi there, internet. *waves*

I'm sorry that I've been terribly, horribly quiet over here. It isn't you, it's me. Seriously.
The holidays kicked my booty in the best of ways. That was a mixed bag of good for my business/bad for maintaining blogs/connections/friendships - luckily, everyone's so understanding in my life, I've been able to win forgiveness. :)

Also, I discovered that the reason I've been so run-down feeling lately is more legitimate than I'd realized, when I got a bloodwork test confirming that I have an iron count of FOUR. Anemic? You betcha. This explained SO much about my lethargy, forgetfulness/lack of concentration, brittle nails, overall weakness. I'm working toward getting that repaired, with vegetarian sources of iron and a hefty supplement that contains two kinds of iron, vitamin C and Ester-C, and B12. Yay! Huge horse pills! I added that to my regimen of meds that I'm taking to help me breathe better. I feel like an old lady with all these pills.

Now that I'm getting better, look for more updates. It's really hard to post new products or photos when I don't wake up early enough to take photos in daylight! O_o

I've missed you, internet. I hope you've been well!
