Hello friends and family!
Yes, the time for this entry has come. This is the one where I post a great deal of shameless plugs for myself. Are you ready? Great, because so am I!
I’ve finally organized my shirts and put them up on the internet for sale. Why should you buy one?
1) You love Bill Murray and/or Steve Buscemi.
2) You have fantastic taste in t-shirts.
3) You love colors that are awesome.
4) You would like to support an unemployed artist currently performing menial tasks for lunch and gas money money.

Guy’s Murray tee is printed on Ash Seafoam Gray, Girl’s are printed on Aqua.
A better look at the Ash Seafoam Gray.
The Guy’s and Girl’s Buscemi shirts are both printed on Gold.
You can pick one up over at my Etsy account for $22!
If you don’t have an Etsy, but still want one.. Shoot me an email and we’ll work something out! Sammykaye(at)gmail.com
Okay, did I guilt you enough? I had to get it out of my system, I’m sorry.
We’ve been back in the States for almost 3 weeks now, and I’m finally starting to get a little bit of work. Aside from a few small odd jobs, I’ve been helping a friend of my mom’s who makes pottery. It’s been so awesome not only getting out of the house (hah!) and making money, but being able to work with an artist. I haven’t done much creatively since moving to Korea, so I’m thankful to be back in the swing. It’s making me feel motivated to work on some things of my own. :)
There’s one more thing I wanted to post about, that I’m probably going to be mentioning a lot in the future.

My incredibly awesome and talented friend (or faux sister) Natalie of BAKE AND DESTROY has started up a new project that I think is pretty amazing. After losing a close friend to cancer, she’s spent a great deal of time raising money and selling baked goods for charities out to kick cancer’s ass. Specifically GRIND FOR LIFE.
Now she’s taken that a step further by starting an Ebay account for charity auctions. She explains, “My name is Natalie and I hate cancer. As the founder of BakeandDestroy.com I’ve made it my mission to help those with cancer by any means necessary – bake sales, online auctions, you name it.” Yes, awesome. All of the items listed are donated, so 100% of the proceeds will go to the listed charities.
I donated two of my shirts and one has already sold! I’m SO excited to ship it off tomorrow. If you want to buy one of my Buscemi shirts AND have all of the proceeds go to charity… Head here: http://myworld.ebay.com/bakeanddestroycancer/
If you make or have something awesome that you’d like to donate, let me know! I’ll probably be updating about different things she has up for auction that I think people might be interested in.
If you’ve made it this far, thanks for reading. It means a lot. We’ve all been effected by cancer in one way or another, so I’m really proud of my friend for doing something awesome about it. It’s a nice reminder that we can kick cancer’s ass if we try.
I hope everyone is well!
Sam and Ryan
