Friday means e comes out

Since it's Friday making an effort to pick up the Eureka Reporter is a good idea, after all I pour my blood sweat and tears into this thing, the least you can do is glance at it. That was of course in jest.

I have also been running stories in the "Spotlight Section" usually in the back of the B section of the daily paper. So check there if you think about it.

Here's a story that ran last Sunday in the Spotlight Section:

There’s a place not far from Humboldt County — about two hours away, to be more specific — where cell phones have become obsolete due to lack of reception, and hundreds of people have gathered without their usual time-telling devices. The question on everyone’s lips at Earthdance was, “What time is it?”... read more

Stay tuned for the real story of my trip to earthdance, the one I can't run in the paper, but in fact changed my life and the way I think about hippies.

I'm still processing it.

So here's a long graphic of all the posters, perfect for pinning! (hint hint).

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
