just some updatey random stuff

well, first of all, i apologize for being such a horrible blogger lately. i’ll be trying to be much more regular soon, with plans for lots of tutorials and fun stuff. my official last day of my day job is memorial day, the 26th, and i’m so excited, but also so stressed out and worried… hopefully all that will calm and when this new self-employed chapter of my life starts everything will be happiness.

i am optimistic. yeah!

but for now, things are slow going. my store update, that was supposed to happen asap after crafty wonderland almost a month ago, never happened. and now i’m devoting every waking moment to preparations for the alberta art hop, so it’ll have to wait till after that.

oh yeah, that’s an announcement. i’ll be selling leethal recycled stuffs, as well as lots of photographs, at the alberta art hop on the 17th. yay! stop by and say hi!!

so, after that, there will indeed be a big fat leethal store update, as well as some form of a lee’s quitting her day job sale! stay tuned!

and, almost done, so close, but it’s taking a lot of time, is a new “yarn” page of leethal.net, in which all my yarn and knitting patterns will be found in one convenient place. you’ll be able to link to, buy, and/or download all of my patterns, and see all of my yarns, both for sale and taken (or made for me to keep), handspun and recycled hand-dyed. it’ll be yarntastic!

hey, anyone in portland looking for a job? pete has some pretty damn sweet job openings at his store, which is guitar center in beaverton. they’re looking for what some people still call “door girls” – yeah guitar center is a really sexist company, but listen to this. you’d get to sit at a booth at the front of the store and do whatever the hell you want (knit, draw, read, you name it) and just say hi to people when they come in and make sure they don’t walk out with anything when they leave. if i was looking for a new day job to replace the old one, i’d grab it. get paid to knit for 8 hours a day, fuck yeah!

also, if you’re looking for a job working in a music store, they’re seriously attempting to make the store less of a boy’s club and want some creative women rockin’ out and selling music stuff – if you might be interested, just email pete at pbanjo244 at gmail dot com for more info or you can go to guitarcentercareers.com.

the company i’m leaving is desperately seeking new hires too, but i wouldn’t wish that kind of torment on anyone who reads my blog.
