I am lucky enough to have some lifelong (or at least long in this life) friends who are very creative. I’ve know Monica and Leslie since college, and they’ve always inspired me, and everyone around them. Monica has many sisters, also creative. And those sisters have friends…artists, teachers, and thrifters (all in the same body, most of them). Once a year this group drives from San Francisco and Chico, picking up a few along the way (like me), and meet in Sacramento for a day of thrifting and laughing, and pizza and recrafting (that would be crafting with the stuff just thrifted). This is four-warehouse-with-shopping carts kind of day…with deals on tyvek envelopes (for wallets, y’know) and credit card machines (mono prints), bags of corks (tools for ceramics) and paper butts (worth their price, just to get to say those two words together). Since I am on a serious home clean out mission, I tried to be restrained. I bought some chemistry beakers, two very cool poker necklaces for Alex (50 cents!), plus some spiffy orange and black decor for her at OSU. And the best treasure of the day….Melissa gave me a typewriter she rescued from her school’s trash! We had delicious pizza and brownies and persimmon cookies and Monica and Dorothy led the make and takes, while the rest of us just made a mess. At the end, photo of the Lee sisters…who made it all happen, again and again (that’s a little recycled joke). The day looked like this:
It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
