busy busy busy

although monday was sebastians "real" birthday, we had a lovely party for him at mabels on sunday! there was a lovely handmade banner hanging upon our arrival that read "happy birthday sebs!". we shared cake and ice cream and a lot of sebbie kisses. sebastian received soooo many presents from our very generous family and friends, that we are still reeling at our new toy arsenal! i think that everyone who was able to make it had a lot of fun . the very next day found matthew, sebs, spud, cait, ashley, and myself in a very cool rented nissan minivan driving to seattle. we paid a short visit to capitol hill, ballard (to visit velouria and pick up and order for memoir which wasn't ready!) , and of course, fremont to visit my old bosslady, kathy, whom we had the misfortune of having "just missed her" and had to endure a few very painful minutes with natalia, the most annoying and stuck up sales girl EVER! egad! after that it was time to head to centralia!!! my favorite place in the northwest for mexican food and thrifting...(it is a huge thrift secret OK? so don't go telling everyone that the thrift stores there are still amazing..) .i scored a ton of great vintage fabric the,t come monday, i will cut up and sew together to make some great knitting needle case holders and purses...with the help of cait of course! i opened the shop yesterday to the racket of construction going on next door ... and two huge pickup trucks parked directly in front of our front door...and happily, a nice little visit from cait! we also had craft nite last nite, kerry and i and spud hung out until about 9pm.... kerry having broken up with john, (the seemed like a nice guy at first but ended up being a crazy arsehole of a boyfriend.. ) is now sans cutlery and a tv...poor gal!
