My sister is having a huge trade show in her hometown. She called me and asked for me to send her my entire inventory of "unique, handmade baby items" for her to sell.

Got everything touched up, retail ready, packed and shipped today. Sewed 56 buttons today. Made 56 buttonholes BY HAND ('cause I'm all about quality, baby), and finished the last of my diaper bags. If everything sells (yeah, right, but thinking positive...) we are talking $X,XXX. Stonette is a kickass salesperson, plus she's handing out my business card, so CHRISTMAS IS ON ME!!! Kidding.

In case you don't know, I make smocks (bibs don't work: ask any mom) that cover the whole child, burp pads (3 layers of flannel! Soft as can be!), and customized diaper bags for moms (attractive and functional!) and dads (they are cammo with cool! action features!).

crazydiamondsue and cityphonelines and I need to manufacture Man Pants, just in time for holiday shopping! "As close to him as you can get without a restraining order!" So you can "wear our man pants and go commando!" Naturally they'll be made out of lycra for deep knee-bends.

Obviously I'm on the last legs of a caffeine induced work high, so time to buzz off and leave you all alone.....

Darn. Why didn't I know you back when everyone I knew was having babies? Your stuff sounds so neat.

Aw! Thanks. Now, the smocks are for toddlers.... Up to the age of 5... Just saying.

Can I say that everytime I see the freaked out hamsters I get happy?

You almost made me want to get knocked up and spit out a critter. Almost. I have resolved to not have a kidlet for at least 3 more years.

Just chew up a hedgehog and spit that critter out. What? Not what you meant? Can I say that I had fevered dreams about you, me and starting up our Man Pants company? I have this image of airbrushed boys on flesh colored lycra... And they'll look like they are laying on your legs, face buried in the crotch, but looking sidewys? MAN PANTS!!

dude, my niece turns 1 in 18 days and I'm sure her parents will be all about anything that keeps her from ruining the rest of her clothes. Do you have a catalog or pictures of your stuff? I'm so there.

Re: smocks
Just sent you an email with some pics. If it's not your thing, no worries. I am a TERRIFIC salesperson.

Re: ah pink floyd. good song.
Man Pants ARE the shit. I'll look into finding a Gary oldman or David Bowie picture. If I can then learn how to airbrush....

Mari, I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you. Crazy time at Casa de Stoney. I'm emailing you some pics, if you'd like to see my work.

And aren't you sweet for asking? It makes me feel all tingly inside!

I would be interested in seeing some of your work, I have a neice with a baby on the way, as well as the JMF board mother in 2005.


Oct. 14th, 2004 06:13 pm (UTC)
That's right! You DO have a neice on the way. I'll email you pics, and the prices are American. I'm trying to set up a website with Pay-Pal embedded in it, but I'm having trouble with the editor prog. I think I'm going to leave my webhost, since I can't use simple things like the fonts I want. !!!

Email forthcoming!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
