two can ride

hey all! happy friday, yahoooooo!!! so i got super excited that you all couldn't wait to see the tandem so i jumped on it and here is the latest! i sooo love this one! red classic tandem with a light blue stained frame! i started a sketch for another that is a bike camping one...i can't wait for that one!!

i haven't added it to my shop yet...i can't tell you how CRAZY it is over here! i am asking you guys a HUGE favor....i need all your good luck vibes in the next two months...because.............................................WE ARE GOING TO OPEN A BIKE SHOP!!!! we are doing all the financing and design...blah blah blah and let me tell you it is A TON of work but the mister and i are so super EXCITED!! the only thing that will be the most difficult is getting the business loan....oh i hope they lend us the money!!! one of our favorite bike shops retired this year and the other stores are CRAP with bad service, shitty inventory & shitty attitude! i have told the mister i refuse to go to one of them because of the attitude we always get there whenever we step foot in there...we are hoping to get the shop opened early january of next year so my postings will be sporadic and i will be posting a lot of my crafts that i am also getting ready for my craft fair....YIPPEEEE

i am off now heading up to lake tahoe for my cousin's fiancee's bachlorette party! can't wait, it is going to be fun and a time to let loose a little. i'll be back on sunday to share the good times!

hope you all have a great weekend!!!!!!


  1. oh my goodness, that is SO exciting! all the very best of luck to you. how fun that will be for you two to do together. I admire your courage. It's going to be great, I'm sure!

  2. Congrats on the shop- What an exciting time for you!! Will be sure to send good luck vibes your way!
    The tandem art looks great! Which reminds me of my incredibly oblivious neighbors who have a vintage, green Schwinn tandem and are letting it sit outside of their apartment exposed to all the elements (rain, and soon to be snow). It breaks my heart :(

  3. How Exciting! Congrats to you & your new "baby". I think you will be an excellentmy to all the bikes out there :)
