575 car permit

Shameless self promotion

I've always wanted to make and sell jewelry, but it's been pretty easy to talk myself out of it all my life. I was recently inspired again while looking for the aforementioned perfect keychain, and realized I'm finally in a great position to do it. It's easy to open a shop online, I've got lots of free time in the afternoons, etc.

So I finally set up my shop, TumbleTowne. I'll eventually do some nicer items with tumbled rocks and faux sea glass, but I wanted to launch with a bunch of Halloween items. Since it's coming up soon, it was a good motivator to buckle down and get enough stock made to do a decent grand opening.

I set it up to do US shipping only, because I didn't want to deal with international shipping, but I'd of course do it separately from the shop for people I know online.

Here's my favorite piece, with a few others behind the cut.

The other gulch

My mother-in-law had some tomatoes for us from her garden, so I had her leave them on their porch so I could swing by before my walk this morning. They live a good four miles South of us, so I figured I may as well visit Big Gulch again, since it's a pretty straight shot West from there. It was nice to cheat on Japanese Gulch again.

I made dinner

Salmon with lemon zest on quinoa cooked in clam juice, caprese with tomatoes from my mother-in-law's garden. I made it for both of us, but only one plate was pretty.
