I have some new totes! I “tote-ally” made Tofu Baby Totes! My friend Chris at Chief Crunchy Screen Printing helped me make these bags. I think they are great for a walk in the woods!
Raoul helped me take these pics at the local botanical gardens. We had so much fun looking around, it is so peaceful and beautiful there.
I also made a design inspired by Smiths lyrics! I love how my illustration of Morrissey came out! Perfect to carry your groceries, books, or records! You can order your own totes through Shoppe Sugar Cookie on Etsy!
This past Saturday was pretty busy. We started the day off by delivering a specially commissioned TOFU BABY COMIC to TREEHOUSE KID & CRAFT for MAYPOP, one of Tofu Baby’s biggest fans. She had just turned five years old and she was having her birthday party this weekend. The strip appeared in our local culture mag, FLAGPOLE, a few days earlier, and then Missy printed out and framed the same comic. When we got to the shop, we were happy to see our friend Katelyn working. Treehouse is one of the most photogenic businesses in town, so we ended up staying a little while longer taking photos and then buying a few things…
I ended up getting this cute little PENCIL CASE for Missy:
Missy has a handful of her LAZER-CUT WOOD ACCESSORIES available at Treehouse…they’re on this adorable little display rack that looks kinda like a miniature bed with a hanging rack above it:
We ducked into IDEAL BAGEL next door to grab a couple of bagels before heading back home, where we punched out one-inch buttons and stapled zines for orders, before heading back out to the post office…
