Ovetto Recycling Egg

I found the next thing I have to get: the Ovetto Recycling Egg designed by Gianluca Soldi. It was solely created to separate your recycling goods AND it's made of 100% recycled polypropylene. Sure, you can simply recycle your plastic and aluminum using two cheap trash cans but this is designer and it looks fantastic in your kitchen! I love eggs so there doesn't have to be much of a valid reason for me to get it :o) I just need to save up $250 for it...

store display

Hello everyone! What a productive day I had - first I went to drop off an order at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art here in San Francisco - then went to do some major lady socializing with some friends until the evening! I thought I'd be pooped from all that but everything's gotten me in high spirits. I reached out to many retailers and got a good number of responses. Yay yay for new business! Above is an image of what I saw earlier at the museum store - my scarves in the store front - beautifully displayed hanging from a tree branch!

What a lovely day today! I was tagged by Karin from "Kayi Dreaming" for being "awe-summ" Here's 7 things that make me awe-summm:

1. I love eggs.

When I say "love" - I mean full-on crazy in love with them. As long as I can recall, I've loved them - the shape, colors, and of course the taste! When I was studying printmaking, I'd make egg-inspired prints...this makes me wonder why I haven't created any egg designs for munaluna...I should get on that!

2. I have a twin.

Oh yes! This is true - I have a twin brother. I'm glad my twin is a boy - I wouldn't want to be fighting over clothes and anything girly =P Another thing, it puzzles me when people ask me, "Are you two identical?" Look, I'm a girl and he's a're really asking me this?!

3. I'm a perfectionist.

At least when it comes to my work. From start to finish, I have to have things in order and the end results have to be the highest standard. I can't imagine putting something in my shop giving only 50% effort...just doesn't feel right...

4. I'm an innie.

This means I'm an introvert. I bought this book called "The Introvert Challenge: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World" - felt like I was reading my autobiography!!! This book changed my life in the sense that I now have a clearer understanding why I am the way I am.

5. I love to bake.

When I find the time, I bake! Nothing beats a homemade chocolate chip cookie! It's hard to find really good cookies in the market...

6. I'm obsessed with playing Restaurant City on Facebook.

If you've got a Facebook account (which 99.99% of humans do these days) you have to HAVE TO add this game. You run your own restaurant and can hire your friends to cook and wait your tables! Also, you get to collect ingredients to make all kinds of different recipes! This is what I've been busy doing... :o)

7. I'm a cafe-going person.

I love going to cafes. I'm definitely not a bar person - I don't recall actually going to one voluntarily! I think I go to one at least once a week. Nothing beats the smell and taste of good coffee...along with the company of a good friend =)

busy bee

I've been quite busy lately with orders - I think it's been my busiest week since I started munaluna! However, the workload makes me feel energized and alive. It's better to be busy with tons of tasks than have nothing to do at all. I went to visit a nursery the other day and came back with these photos - just wanted to share =)
