What did you do this month?

In the last 30 days we launched a punk rock compilation and relaunched an online store. We had to go to court for a custody battle and did our first art/craft show. On top of that, we decided to get married too…

Are we a glutton for punishment?

Not really. It’s more a combination of circumstance (court), bad timing (OddMall being only every 6 months) and impatience (we simply couldn’t wait any longer to get married).

Was it worth it? Abso-freakin-lutely.

Today’s the brief reprieve. It’s time to take a step back and ramp up for the next steps. But this time we’re really trying to keep it to a much more manageable pace. I want to enjoy the holidays – I want to have time to play again. Here’s what we’re hoping to deliver (and I’m totally speaking for Bryan right now, but I think he’ll agree):

– An update on OddMall. It was a blast! We have great stories and artists we’re dying to share.

– More favorites and art that we’ve been finding

– More art and other things that we’ve been dying to try with DIY’s along the way. I’m sure some of it will work and some of it be a blazing disaster – all of it will be fun.

– The usual mix of day-to-day, cool stuff and anything else that pops into our minds.

In the end, my mind is racing and it feels like I can’t type or write fast enough to get it all out. Watch out! No more blog gaps…..at least for a little while.


About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.

    It was great to meet you and Bryan at Oddmall, I bought a few necklaces from you and talked about photographing the Haserot Angel at Lake View. Bryan wanted to see my pics, can you email me an email address so I can send a link?

    Love your work, you guys rock the haunted house! 🙂
