Meet Christopher Johnson

It's been almost a year since I found Hobocrayfish almost completely dried out on the sidewalk outside of my house. There is a nearby streambed that flows occasionaly during heavy rains. I'm pretty sure Hobocrayfish must have left its quickly evaporating waters in search of a more permanent place to live. When I found him, the poor little guy was bravely trying to fend off an attack from my brother's cat. Once I rescued Hobocrayfish I realized that I had no idea what I was going to do with him! I couldn't put him back into the stream because I knew that it would be completely bone dry again within a day or two and that would mean certain death for him. The local humane society didn't want him, I had no idea where he came from originally and I couldn't find anyone who would take him for a pet. In the end I decided that since I was the one who found him, I would have to be the one to take responsibility for him. What else could I do? I couldn't just abandon him and leave him to die! I ended up buying him an aquarium, a filter, plants, gravel, food and a ton of other fun stuff and he's been living happily with us ever since. His favorite pastimes include rearranging the driftwood in his tank and eating all my attempts at aquascaping!

However, poor Hobocrayfish was the only one of our Hobo family who had never been given a "formal" name...until recently! I just went to the movies the other weekend to see District 9. I really, reeaaally enjoyed it! I liked it so much that I decided to name Hobocrayfish after everyone's favorite "prawn", Christopher Johnson! :o)

Introducing the Grab Bag Surprise!

I just added a Mystery Box/Grab Bag style listing to the shop due to special request. For those who would like to buy a few stamps (but not enough for wholesale) here's your chance to get a bit of a price break. You get 10 randomly chosen stamps for $35 (worth $50). This is $15 less than if you purchased them individually! I think that's a pretty nice deal. :o) And don't worry, these are exactly the same quality as all the stamps I sell in my shop. No reject stamps here. The only catch is that I will not take special requests, they will just be randomly chosen from the stock I already have made. That way I don't have to spend extra time cutting out and assembling ones I don't have around at the moment. In the end that makes things easier for me and that's why it will be cheaper for you. Yay!

I've been trying to grow some mint for mojito nites with my gal pals (despite my certified "black thumb"). If you have any good recipes please share! Yumm! :o)

Something Wicked This Way Comes...

A former customer contacted me to let me know that my raven stamp was featured on September 8th's Halloween themed Etsy Finds. Thanks so much! Halloween is my favorite holiday after all. :o)

Mini Magnets

Maybe something new for the shop? I don't know yet, but it was fun designing the magnets and getting to add some color to my drawings. I only got a few of these made but I have been sneaking them in RANDOMLY with some of the orders that have gone out, as freebies! I hope they like the surprise. :o)
