my cousin Marina sent me her dad's famous vegetarian tamale recipe and Jhase and i decided to give it a try. we spent the last of our money on supplies and ended up making over two dozen cheesy tamales .... but now i am 100% sick of them and i am willing to trade for other food and/or money. help us eat them!!!

i'm sorry

things aren't going so good here. jhase is still out of work and we are both poor and hungry, surviving off thanksgiving leftovers. i had to move out of my art studio on sunday because i can no longer pay for it. i'm actually okay working from home, i just feel a little cramped here.
at least i'm making art again... at our family thanksgiving my dad and uncle played a dozen old folk songs and it was amazing. it was the cutest performance i had ever seen and i was really proud of them. i miss my family a lot these days and i have been thinking of moving back home, but jhase loves it here and so do i... i had to walk home three miles today because i couldn't spend my milk money on the bus. oh well, now i have a carton of half & half and i officially hate the hills of sf. anyone want to write me a letter?

i made this necklace out of a vintage 60's napkin of Victorian flats and psychedelic flowers, a small antique picture frame and a very sturdy chain.

jhase came home last night with a pair of $400 shoes for me that his pal wrote off, so they were free! it's so sweet he knows my size and what i like.
this afternoon i made a drawing of a pocket watch headed female riding a religious rocket and then i sewed it onto some canvas. it took about four hours and tomorrow i'll paint it all pretty.
