Glue fumes and Handmade Hats


Stockpiling is one of the hidden "perks" that comes prepping for a summer on the road. The past few evenings have been spent gluing thousands of pinbacks onto our signature Happy Owl Badges while listening to the cynical charms of Joel McHale on The Soup.



How he makes trashy television so fun to watch is beyond me...

Our cross-country trip is being fueled by multiple pursuits. Of course, a major inspiration is the dual-coast participation in the Brooklyn and San Francisco Renegade Craft Fairs but to add to our creative binge the family will make a four day stop in the Bristlecone Pine National Forest to shoot a short film.



Maisy is suffering the fate of most children born into a filmmaking household as she will be starring in the short project. Her first costume item arrived in the mail today - A beautifully constructed hat by Pogibabies!


The muted-yellow is sure to pop among the ancient trees and barren landscape. More details to come soon. In the meantime, glue fumes are calling...
