Craft Fair: Hullabaluau

Once I’m done with the Dutchtown Bazaar, I get to turn right around and do another craft fair on Sunday! This one is the Hullabaluau, and it will be at Sandrina’s from noon to 9pm. A good friend of mine is putting this one on, and the reason for the fair is a reflection of […]

Craft Fair: Dutchtown Bazaar

The last craft fair I was at was at the Waterloo Market and Music Festival…and it just poured all day. Such a disappointment. Most people (neither the attendees nor the vendors) weren’t prepared for that kind of rain, and they all packed up and left within an hour or two of the fair starting. I […]


Blog Feature: The Review Board

It’s been a while since How to Find a Bra That Fits was featured anywhere, so the email announcing this review was a sight for sore eyes. Today’s website is The Review Board. It’s a blog of sorts, run by a group of people who are all interested in different genres of books. When a […]

Tea Review: Pisces, by Adagio

Pisces From the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging The tin for Pisces features a woman with white … fish-hair, I guess. Not sure what else to call it. It looks like dolphins are diving into either side of her head. She’s holding a big blue tuna-looking fish, and she’s got the Pisces sign tattooed above […]


Tea Review: Aquarius, by Adagio

Aquarius From the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging The artwork for the Aquarius tea features a woman with an undercut and long wavy blue hair, very reminiscent of a waterfall. The background is a lovely mix of blues, teals, and a bit of purple. Leaves The leaves are rather boring looking: it looks just like […]

Tea Review: Capricorn, by Adagio

Capricorn From the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging The imagery for Capricorn is weird. Goat-fish? Who comes up with this stuff? So the artwork for the Capricorn tea is surprisingly graceful, given what the artist has to go off of. We have an androgynous person with white hair (hood?) and goat horns, and they’re holding […]


Tea Review: Sagittarius, by Adagio

Sagittarius From the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging Purple is my favorite color, and the Sagittarius tin is the exact shade that I love. It’s a saturated purple with just a hint of blue. There’s a lady holding two arrows, which are stuck in her very bizarre purple hair. As you can see from the picture, […]

Craft Fair: May Music and Market Festival in Waterloo, IL

Last weekend was my first ever craft show. It was at a new local bar called the Tick Tock Tavern. It’s a quirky little bar in South City filled with clocks all stopped at 4:20 and vintage owl memorabilia. An interesting place, to be sure, but not exactly my jam. I think I’m just from […]


Tea Review: Scorpio, by Adagio

Scorpio From the Zodiac line by Adagio Packaging The tin for the Scorpio tea gives off a different vibe than the rest of the Zodiac teas. Here we have a woman with a purple scorpion’s tail instead of hair. It’s a bit odd. The colors are red and black. Leaves The color palette definitely gives […]

EterniTeas: Come visit my new blog!

Quick announcement: I’ve created a blog dedicated to reviewing decaf and non-caffeinated teas. It’s called EterniTeas and you can find it here. I have passion for non-caffeinated teas: for a good two years I was unable to have caffeine. During this time I learned a lot about decaf and non-caffeinated teas, and about rooibos teas in […]
