See you in 10 days!

Sorry for major lack of blogging!

We are leaving for the UK tomorrow, and you always have to do MORE work to go on vacation! I’m trying to get organized for Renegade Austin in May, get some things settled with Yummy You, finish up a wholesale order, pick up the house a bit cuz I hate to leave a dirty house. I wasn’t able to accomplish everything I would’ve liked, but I tried! I gotta go do laundry now!!

I closed up my Etsy and BigCartel shops, but will re-open on April 1. I’ve been sketching all kinds of fun new scarves. So I’m excited to get home and make them ๐Ÿ˜›

We are headed to Dublin and London. London, I love. Dublin, I’ve never been to before. So all in all, should be a good trip ๐Ÿ™‚

Remember if you are in London, to please come stop by my booksigning and say hi! It’s at All The Fun of the Fair, in Soho, Unit 2 – 8 Kingly Court, Carnaby Street, Saturday March 26, starting at 1pm.ย  I am hoping we can have a little time to just say hi and eat some cupcakes and sign some books before beginning the crochet class, so people who don’t really want to crochet but want to say hello should still swing by. I’d love to see you!! Also if you’d like to actually take the class (I’m a terrible teacher so it’s more just like hanging out and crocheting together as I try to sort out crochet problems clumsily!), please click on the shop link and RSVP so they can prep enough yarn for everyone :). OMG that reminds me, I need to print out pattern handouts!! Thanks for reminding me, blog!


Oh, and p.s. if you shop at Forever21 right now they are donating 100% to relief efforts in Japan. Also, a bunch of pals have donated time and love and their art to the #PrayForJapan art show that opens tomorrow/Saturday at JapanLa with 100% proceeds going to the Red Cross. Also you can just donate directly to the Red Cross. I am donating a crocheted item to a friend who is organizing an auction, so I’ll let you know the details when I know as well. Ok, bye!

    Hope you have a fun time in the UK! Bring some warm clothes!!

    • I’m trying! I’m hoping maybe I can buy a coat when I’m there!!! Mine is not warm enough, I think!

  • Irit


    Maybe next time you can come to Tel Aviv? We’d love to have you here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh wow! That would be quite a journey!!!

      Is crafting/crocheting very popular in your area?

      • Irit


        Yes, crafting is very popular in Israel. There are so many talented crafters here!

        I’m afraid I personally don’t know how to crochet (the shame!), but I’d love to learn. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Post cute photos from london and Dubling on your Twicpic …Have a safe flygth :))

    • I’ll try!! I won’t have my regular phone though since it’s so expensive to pay for the international plan on my iphone! :/

  • Jenny Whoo


    Have a safe trip! Can’t wait to see the photos!

    That is AMAZING of Forever 21- I am seriously impressed!

    • I’ll try to take more photos than I usually do. Sometimes I get lazy or shy and don’t want to look like a tourist, so I don’t take the camera out! ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Jenny Whoo


        Haha, ditto! I need to get in a better habit of taking photos with MYSELF included in them….I always hate the way I look in photos, but then I kick myself later for not having taken any ๐Ÿ™

  • McKayla


    Hi Twinkie! Have so much fun in the UK! Take lots of pictures and eats lots of weird food! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Abigail


    You see there ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m excited.

  • Angela


    Oh, have fun! Have a nice journey and enjoy your stay in London! I’m sure you’ll be coming back full of fresh ideas and you’ll impress us once more! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • tetcutiepie


    Oh yeah, I was gonna say, wear your winter coat on the plane! I hear Dublin is colder than London… The UK is awesome for coats (if a little pricey once you do the exchange) so I’d definitely get a coat here if you don’t have one warm enough ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s all about the layers! I personally don’t like to layer though! There’s not enough cute/trendy clothes to make a good looking layered outfit, or maybe I’m just crap at it!

    Hmmm, I know Orange has an animal package called ‘Dolphin’ where, if you top-up by ยฃ10, you get 300 free texts and free internet! You can get a sim card for free too.

    Hope to see you Saturday! I’m just worried about getting/being lost and being late, cause of the road blocks!

    • I know! worst day ever to have a book signing! AHHH.

      That’s the day we’re supposed to pick up rental car, too, cuz we are driving to Brighton the next day. I hope I’m not late either. That would be super embarrassing!

      • tetcutiepie


        I’m sure people would understand if you were late!

        I hope wherever the car rental place is, the roads aren’t blocked?! I wonder how that works if they are!?

        Brighton will be fun for sure! Parking could be tricky to find… On the pier, Crazy Mouse ride is a definite, if you happen to go up that way! Only if there aren’t any kids on the ride though, cause they tend to slow it down if there’s little ones :p

  • Laura


    Have fun!!!

    As for Japan stuff, there is also this

    I teach many of the students who have created this. Our sister city is Sendai, so we have many students who have been directly affected by this tragedy, so they are banding together for this project to help their friends and families. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Twinkie, I’ve taken a cupcake scarf class with you and you’re a great teacher! I have to say it was the most fun I’ve had at a class and you made it pretty easy to get the hang of the pattern. Thanks for the heads up on Forever 21 and their donations to Japan, will head over there to shop this afternoon. Have fun in London and Dublin!

  • Amy


    Hope you’re having fun in London and Dublin. Will you ever come to Australia? Please say you will!

  • Michelle


    Hope you are having an awesome time in the UK. I hope to make it there myself one day. Until then I drool with envy. ๐Ÿ˜‰
