*believe that children are our future*

just a time out to remember why i love doing what i do SO much.  teaching my girls common sense/critical thinking, justice,'s just one of the perks i am fortunate to get with this business.  it's a good by-product of being vegan {the main benefit goes to the animals life/health and right to live their own lives}:  getting to pass it on to a couple of smart cookies like my girls.


have a great weekend! give a kid a high five today and if they are open to it, discuss why we don't eat animals.  you may of not been born vegan but there is a more than a chance a whole lot of people will be soon and that's radical.

*advertising is tricky business*

advertising.  self promotion.  brand recognition.  it's all one in the same, but a graphic designer i am not and it helps when people who do this all day are on the case!  as with it is with submerge magazine's ad folks.  i got special permission to reprint i am special! {i enjoy seeing never felt better's name in lights, respectively.}

i blew it up a bit so know it's not blurry in the magazine.  SOY CURLS...believe it or not is one of our best sellers.  people love their soy curls.  {present company included, i presume.}

anyway submerge is cool to run ads in, and has gotten me quite a few customers!  they, and by they i mean josselin--she's rad btw, are going to feature a different product for me every ad so for the money they are worth their weight in gold :)  

the next venture is to utilize yelp to my advantage.  more on that to come!

*post book signing wrap-up*

it was a blast!  i am SO happy at the turnout {i am one of those worrywarts who are sure no one is coming even if they pinkie swore they were}!  i was worried that it would be a bust for melisser coming all they way here to sackatomatoes, but indeed she sold out of her stack of books and i had one of the very best tuesdays i have had since the store started back in sept!  viva la sacramento vegan girl!

 i am the one throwing vegan gang signs, if you couldn't gather that already.  {hey i was a bit drunk by the end of the evening, and this is what happens k!}

my thanks and undying appreciation go to miss melisser elliott, and her crew for making this a great event.  now on to the next thing!  {my wheels are have NO idea!}
