another day on the factory floor.

today i churned out a bunch of custom orders, packaged things, shipped things - you know, the glamorous work involved in running one's own business.

among my recent orders were these buttons by toronto artist, daryl vocat. daryl is pretty cool. you should check out all his work and buy it all. daryl is also most of the readership of this blog where he comments under the pseudonym "anonymous."

i've had the scouts kissing button on my winter coat for a few years now. it's very good at reminding me of winter and not very good at repelling moths. just saying.

on the carnivorous plants front (did you even know we had one of those here?), the bladderwort that aitor acquired at the orchid show in februrary has pushed up its first bloom under his care. it looks like that wardian case really paid off. we're all very proud. we might even take down a ceiling light fixture and sprinkle the ensuing gnat graveyard on it to celebrate. ensuing is not the right word, but i can't think of the right word.

you always have the greatest pics of your wares!

also, i love the fact that this is right next to a YTV button order on your flickr. heehee!

oh, anonymous, it's always so great to hear from you.

i was planning to come by the studio with them today but i didn't. suffice it to say that nobody should ever order anything from the brick. seriously.

but to make up for my tardiness, i've made you some thing special. maybe i'll take a picture of that tomorrow.
