Last week I unveiled in my Redbubble shop’s photography design section a piece using a photo I took while enjoying my holidays on the Jersey shore.
As promised, here is the second new design from that vacation, a simple still life featuring some seashells I collected while walking the beach with my dog Beatrix. This image looks great on graphic print T-shirts, laptop and tablet skins, a tote bag, or as straightforward wall art.

This weekend is Arisia in Boston, and it’ll be something of a bittersweet show for us, because it’ll be my first Arisia in four years as a plain old patron.
My first time vending Arisia was in 2013, and as you can see from the photo at right, my setup was a LOT smaller than it was by the end of my run (bottom photo). We had a much smaller catalog of items and, as you can tell, my arrangement was a little weird, but we did all right that first year, and Arisia quickly became one of my most reliable shows.
I briefly toyed with the idea of using Arisia 2017 to bring my time as a faire and convention vendor to an end for that reason, but decided to make a clean break with the New Year. So if you see me at Arisia, I’ll be wandering around and enjoying the panels, demonstrations, and yes, the merchants area as an attendee, but I won’t hold it against you if you stop me and say hello 🙂

We first met the folks at Auntie Arwen’s Spices at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, and we quickly fell in love with their staggering variety of spice blends. They’ll be at Arisia in Boston this weekend, and I plan to do a little stocking up while I’m there.
We of course love one of their signature blends, Ultimate Garlic Insanity (at right) and their many beef, chicken, and pork seasonings, but we’re big fans of many of their sugar blends as well. Try their Get Up and Go Ginger Sugar or their Luscious Lemon Sugar in a cup of tea, or their Vermont Happydance Cinnamon-Maple Sugar on some French toast!

We have a couple of new items coming through our Redbubble shop, both of which come courtesy of my trip to the Jersey shore over the holidays.
The first of these new photographic designs is “Sunrise Over the Atlantic,” which I took from the shore on our last day at our holiday vacation rental. You can get this design on T-shirts and other clothing, phone cases, laptop skins, and other accessories.

For our first Fun Friday of the year, we’d like to share a card game we received as part of our Christmas gift haul.
The game is Joking Hazard, from the creators of Cyanide and Happiness. The concept is very simple: each round, a judge plays the first two panels of a comic strip, and the other players have to play the punchline panel. The funniest punchline wins the round. That’s it!
Fair warning, this is a game in the same vein as Cards Against Humanity in that it is not for the timid or easily offended. It is raunchy, gory, and tasteless, but if you’re okay with that kind of stuff, it’s also hysterical (especially after an adult beverage or two).
