New Fun Stuff

Oh how wonderful life is sometimes, but the tricksy parts of it are finding balance amidst the chaos.  Time has become a precious commodity now-a-days.  It's summer here in Seattle, which means that everything starts happening - at once! 

I wanted to pass along some of the major events that are coming up in the cycling community - some of which I'm putting some work into.  I really enjoy having side projects involving bikes that are pretty freaking cool.

Dead Baby Downhill - August 6th

Sound to Mountains BikeFest - August 8th.

Seattle Bike Music Festival - September 11th

I'm also really excited because I just got artists space in the same quaint older building that Mobius is in.  I'm really looking forward to pursuing all the hobbies I've put on hold or haphazardly done due to lack of space/and an area that's concussive to keeping doing those hobbies.  Things like jewelry making, making balsam, lotions, soaps, shampoo, air fresheners, anything and everything out of essential oils and herbs. Writing poetry and short stories, making collages and random clip-art poetry in those collages, mixed media pieces, making clothing, etc...  But I'm going to be focusing on making making art, jewelry, accessories, and household items out of recycled/trashed bicycle parts. Beautiful things to ride and once they wear down, beautiful things to look at and wear. :)  I'm very excited about it.

I'm in the process of moving in right now, gathering materials and items I'll need to get everything up and running.  My goal is to start selling the items I make on Etsy (RisingDawn will be the name to look for) and in a few bike shops around town in the next month or so, depending on when I can get the set up moved in completely and get my groove on.
