Roller Derby

I sold at/went to my first roller derby last weekend. It was incredible! I loved watching the few minutes of the derby I saw and how aggressive the girls were. I wish I could be like it but I'm pretty happy I'm not haha. The match was for the L.A. Derby Dolls teams the Sirens and the Touch Cookies. The Tough Cookies were the favorite since they were undefeated for the season, but the Sirens ended up winning!

It was my first time selling at anything like this and I think it went pretty well. I made enough to cover my booth space, gas to and from L.A, dinner and have a little bit left over. You aren't really allowed to take cameras into the roller but I was able to pull of taking a picture of my booth. I need to get some better lighting to string through my tent but other than that I think it looks pretty good.

Everyone there was really nice and I can't wait to sell at the 2 day tournament on June 28th and 29th. If you want to go you can get tickets at It should be great fun times and I hope you can make it!

What else has been going on...Oh! On Sunday I woke up and found that our dog, who totally knows better, had peed on AND ruined my favorite sewing machine. I cleaned it out to no end and no matter what I do the thread still smells like urine. So, I had to buy a new sewing machine...sigh! I picked up this one at the local Wally-world since I didn't like any of the one's at Joann's and I'm pretty happy with it so far. I've made a purse and 2 fleece Angel's blankets and haven't had any problems.

This weekend will be filled with sewing and bike rides at the beach. I can't wait!


  1. I went to a roller derby once, but got a migraine and had to leave :( I should try it again some time.

  2. Was it an LADD game? I'd be very surprised because they kick ass!
