Appologies are in order! I haven’t blogged in close to a week. Yikes. With the short notice for the race on Sunday, my life quickly was taken over trying to get things done in time.
The race was amazing. Just as I expected, women from all walks of life came down to support one another. (If you’re just tuning into my blog, I did a craft show at a race called She.Is.Beautiful that is geared towards women.) Everywhere I looked, pink was in my face. It was awesome. Pink hair, pink tutus, pink boas, pink tights. These ladies were not messing around. Thankfully we had a break in the rain by the time the race begun. Although we definitely got our fair share of rain while setting up at 6:30am. You know what I realized on the way over to the race? That one of my new years resolutions was to catch more sunrises and here I was catching a beautiful sunrise on the beach, nonetheless. Stoked!
Craft booth on the beach?! Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting.
I made the paper flags across the table the night before. I used paper bags for the flags and newspaper cutouts for the letters. Could have definitely been bigger, but it was super quick and got the job done.

It was perfect. I had a little bit of everything for people to get a taste of what I’m all about.
The vender’s booths surrounded the main tent where the ladies came to get their numbers and reconvene. It was such a perfect view for to see all the excitement.
This girl on the right deserves friend award of the year. She got up with me at 5:30 in the morning, helped me setup in the pouring rain, stuck around to help me sell and broke down with me 5 hours later without complaining and all from the goodness of her heart! That’s a damn good friend.
While the race was going on, we figured we could get some good modeling time as the sun broke through. Here I am modeling one of my scarves.
And with my tangerine reusable bag… cute whale
I love Mr. Roboto.
Mr. Roboto also comes in pink.
It was such a fun day and I am so grateful that I was a part of it all. All my items are now posted on Etsy and if you live in Santa Cruz, just message me so you can avoid shipping cost.
