Hi.

While the world is going to hell in a hand basket, and my kids are old enough that they just need me for money, it’s time to tackle the piles and piles of treasures all over my house. I am planning on traveling the world – when I win the lottery – so until then I need to get rid of my sacred possessions to only what will fit in a suitcase. Or a motorhome. One or the other.

I offer them up for sale, for only true love will swing someone to buy an item like an old book, or some obscure art. Hey, they make great gifts!

I am also featuring my husbands art work. He is a commercial artist, and he is doing this for fun, and he is a fun loving funny guy, as you will witness with his giant bunny vs. lucha libre wrestler picture, among others. Yes, there’s also an Old Fashioned drinking Wisconsin Badger up for sale. We are experimenting with digital downloads, so they are cheap and you can put them on whatever you want. Oh, and t-shirts, you can get some t-shirts and a onesie.

Please talk back if you want, it would be great to hear if people are out there. You can tell me what you think of my shop and what you’d like to see.

I just got my new book (!) Building Stories by Chris Ware

This is a box with books and comics inside, it is all that and so much more. It is a big ole gift to yourself, and I just saw it on Amazon for $25, which is half price, and is crazy because local stores cannot compete with that, but it is an amazing price and you get so much for your money!

The colors are so deep and the printing so crisp. The faux Golden Book isn’t perfect, it looks fantastic, but the foil on the side is coming off, but who care, it is a faux Golden Book! Do I sound like an asshole if I mention that Chris Ware lived above my best friend in Chicago in the 1990’s? So so much of his work reminds me of that time and place in Chicago.

Also I cannot let my kids see these because some of the pictures would upset them, maybe traumatize them.
