I'm a Side Hustler!

Melissa Robinson

If you're from the Seattle area, you probably know Carla Marie as one of the morning radio hosts of KISS 106.1 (Carla Marie and Anthony). What you may not know is that she also hosts a weekly podcast called Side Hustlers. Every week, she interviews someone who has a full time job and also runs a business following their passion. Well guess what? She had me on her podcast! Carla Marie is amazing. Seriously. She's a badass Side Hustler herself so she gets the struggles and joys and everything that comes with a million things all at once. She knows...


Break --> Over!

Break --> Over!

Man.  My body has seriously let me down and kept me down far too long!  If you'll recall, last year about this time, I mentioned I had to take an unintentional break due to some sort of ailment in my back/hip area that had yet to be diagnosed. It took a whole year of guessing and various treatments (chiropractic, physical therapy, cortisone injections, etc) for a doctor to finally find a real issue causing my real pain.  Final diagnosis was a torn labrum in my hip due to a hip socket that was too deep.  Kind of a big deal! ...

I had (well, still have) a bit of a hip/back issue, because you see, I'm "over 40" now and apparently when you're "over 40" shit starts wearing out on you.  Anyway, the doc told me to stay off it as much as possible and keep ice on it to bring down inflammation - so being a good little patient, I planted myself on my couch, iced my ass and knit.  Boy have I been knitting!  I'm settling...

Maple Valley Days 2017

I did it!  I did my very first vendor event, and I chose a whopper of a show - Maple Valley Days.  Our little city essentially shuts down, has a parade and a carnival and goes for broke! There's an estimated 10,000 - 15,000 attendees every year.  It is so much fun to attend as a patron, but it was also fun to do as a vendor!  I collected many odds and ends for my display over the last few months, I really wasn't sure how it was going to all going to look, but I have to say -...
