Cool Crap From This Week!

Hey guys! HAPPY LONG WEEKEND AHEAD! I am so stoked for an extra day of nerdbiskiting! So excited in fact, that I opted out of a nap to do this blog and make buttons and wrap up at Etsy order… I heart having 2 full time jobs! NO TIME TO REST! Surviving off caffeine! I am definitely going to burn out sooner or later… just wait for it. My head may explode. Don’t worry, I’ll take photos and blog about it when it happens…

Here are some things I dig this week:

1. LONG WEEKEND!!! WOO! I am driving a few hours up North(ish) to visit the fam jam. And will be hitting up a few of my fave vintage stores in Sauble Beach while I’m there! New dresses coming up!

2. I received a weekly set of mustaches in the mail as a thank you from my previous guest blogger, Sabrina. She is the best! As if the ‘staches weren’t awesome enough, her book, The Healer, arrived the very next day. It’s in my to-read pile! I was pretty excited that these staches arrived just in time for my April Stache-A-Thon campaign! All you have to do is LIKE me on Facebook and post a photo of a stache. Any stache. You wearing it, or a celebrity, or a mustache item… whatever! Do it and you can win $20 worth of merch from my Etsy shop! Here is some mustache inspiration for you:

I was also able to work a mustache into our “photo day” at work. Which is a corporate head office. So this is a major accomplishment very much deserving of recognition! 🙂 *proud*

3. Exciting news: (at least for me!) I’ve been asked to illustrate 2 children’s books. One is about a dragon and a flea, the other a squirrel and a pumpkin patch… I AM SO STOKED. I haven’t exercised my book illustration skills in a while! It is a lot more work than designing my next character for a button, tee, or tote bag BUT I’m sure I can skip out on a show or two to make time. It’s something I absolutely have to do!

4. My new promos are ready to send along to First Sunday Stroll! They’re going to be included in some swag bags 😀

5.  This story about how Ryan Gosling saved a woman’s life absolutely made my week. What a hero. And a real human being! ❤ I just sent a Gosling bottle opener over to Finland so he is definitely loved by ladies around the world! AND HE MIGHT EVEN SAVE YOUR LIFE. Gosling to the rescue!

6. Heather from Needlings and I discovered the most delicious chai lattes last night on our tea date! If you’re in Hamilton, visit The Bean Bar and get it in ya! So tasty.

Ok, that’s it, now I am off to enjoy my long weekend with lots of sewing for the next show on April 14 & 15, Wizard World Comic Con! I promise I will take a break. Probably even tonight, to go see The Hunger Games!

Have a good one pals!

I Make Buttons, Didja Know? & The Daily Dress

Today was one of the most productive days ever! Not that I don’t often have days like this, I just pushed extra hard since I have so much to get done for my first show of the year, in only TWO WEEKS – Toronto ComiCon on March 10 & 11!!! I will be away next weekend in Ottawa, visiting a very good lady pal (<3!) so I had to get as much done today as possible, just in case this week gets busy in the evenings… you just never know. I think I’m about ready to go, save a few minor finishing touches… oh and signage. Oh, and a display for totes. Oh and a few more bottle openers…. OMG I’M NOT EVEN CLOSE *minor freak out*

Ok, no I think I really am good to go 🙂

Anyway, in case you didn’t already know this about me… I make buttons! LOTS OF BUTTONS. And guess what? I take custom requests for bulk button orders. I have 2 fantastic, semi-automatic professional machines, in 1″ and 2.25″. I updated my Etsy today with the 2.25″ bottle openers, the 1″ buttons are already on there, and soon I will have 2.25″ buttons and pocket mirrors up there as well. (Possibly even tonight!)

I already had my first bottle opener order for bridal shower favours! (I posted about them last Sunday) which I thought was a very cool idea, and have a second order on deck. Woo! Busybusybusy.

If you’re interested in ordering any, just email me: nerdbiskit@hotmail.com

All the pricing is listed on my Etsy shop, and just because I heart you for following my blog, you can use coupon code BLOGFAN for 20% off 🙂

I also whipped up a Ryan Gosling keychain bottle opener… just because it had to be done.

The process of pressing buttons is sort of calming for me. I could do it for hours… actually, I have done it for hours, many, many times! My largest order so far was for 1000 1″ buttons, it was pretty intense but luckily I had a few months to complete it.

Hmmm what else did I want to tell you… oh yah! My guest blogger this week is going to be the very lovely and talented freelance make up artist, Miss Kristen Harper!

I’m very excited about sharing her awesome work with you! She’s a pretty cool lady, and I used to work with her back in the day as a visual merchandiser… but I don’t want to ruin Wednesday’s guest post!

Ok, I’m out! Signs to be made!

Here’s The Daily Dress – boring ol’ dress for chores and crafting. I also attempted a high bun for the first time… perhaps I might rock it in public sometime, it’s not too terrible I suppose.
