we're home!

we made it home...safe and sound. we're totally pooped!

i have about a million emails to sort through and respond to tonight and tomorrow and sleep...yes, sleep is what i need.... and then i'll be able to photograph the new backpack!
everyone at the Maker Faire *loved* it! i think you will, too.
you may see a few walking around new york city as I write this!
just about everyone we met was truly fantastic - you all are some of the nicest people i've ever encountered!
we had a ton of fun. 
we got to see a few 'vintage' Moop bags (that made us so happy to see a some of our very first bags on people's shoulders),
meet some lovely fellow makers,
see a jet powered pony ride (super duper loud),
meet valerie and paul from tugboat (it only took going to new york city to meet some awesome people from our home town..can't wait to meet up again)
and i got to meet wen from knit knit (that made my day - she's the nicest person around!).

tonight is full of down time. looking forward to hanging with my parker (and giving her all the presents i bought for her at the fair!) (i love giving presents!)

  4. On the note of spotting Vintage Moop... I saw a Market Bag from across the candy counter at the Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs, Ohio about two weeks ago. Its chic & faithful owner, en route from New York to San Francisco, raved about having carried it non-stop since she got it years ago in the early days "before everyone knew about them" -- which was a pretty *WOW* thing to say and now seemed like a good time to share it... Viva La Moop!! Hopefully the next one I see will be mine :)
