A year in the life of a Sacred Snatch

Yes, it is true Sacred Snatch turned 1 year old this month. I can't believe it has already been a year since I opened up this account.

I found my space about three years ago and mostly jumped on here to keep up with the kids and my friends. In fact, I am rarely on that account anymore.

Some friends and I started crafting and I got this hair up my ass and thought it would be cool to open up this account and see if there are some other artistas that I could network with, maybe share an idea and or just bounce around for inspiration.

I had no idea where this profile would take me. Within two weeks I was hooked! My friends teased me and even accused me of dropping them to the curb for my "New crafty friends" Psh, whatever, they are still with me, and then some!

Some Stats; (that still blow my mind by the way)

WTH? I thought having over 100 friends on my other profile was muey Chingona! Who would have thought that peeps would have love for a girl calling herself "Sacred Snatch?"

I even had second thoughts with the name when one gallery owner told me my name was to riskay for his clientele. I even have some "friends" who won't add me to their profile but who subscribe to my blogs and private message me, because they don't want people to get the wrong idea with my profile on their page.

Lol, that kind of cracks me up, but whatever. I know the true meaning behind my name and I am very proud of how it came about.

For me, the name emodies women who are strong, lovely, faithful, creative, and who value strong bonds and friendships.

Originaly, I was going to incorperate the Guadalupe image as part of my logo, because I felt she was the most Sacredest Snatch out there. (for real) but then I didn't want to be accused of being sacreligious. Even though I felt it would have been the most respectful homage I could pay to her.

Anyhow, I just wanted to give all my myspace homies a shot out. I truly appreciate each and every one of your adds and friend requests.

I have literally made some honest to goodness friendships here and have had a blast this past year attending and vending at events I never would have heard of without you.

I continue to look forward to getting to know more of you and am in constant awe of all the talent at my finger tips. Browse through my friend list and you will know what I am talking about.

Everyone of you are so positive and open about sharing a technique, product, and or introductions to other artists.

I love the world I have created here and I brag about all of you all the time. I have a lot of non myspacer homies who think I am nuts when I talk about it, lol, but I am proud to say, that I am good at converting them over here.

Sometimes I will be hanging with some homegirls and then we all kinda laugh when we realize that we all met each other through myspace.

Believe me, there was a time when I would NEVER even consider meeting anyone online. I used to think (like my husband) that there were nothing but socially dysfunctional people or scary pervy's online looking for hook ups. Ok, ok, I know I am a bit scary, but really, I can carry on a conversation outside of myspace too.

This month is also the "Regulator" and my aniversary as well. 20 years! Gaaaaw Dang that is a long time. hee. I was a kid when we married, but that is another story.

So Wednesday, we are headed to the Big Apple for some fun "couple" time.

We leave Wednesday night and will get there early Thursday morning. We will be staying through Sunday, and I already have a heavy itinuary set up. Poor guy is going to have to endure some shopping time, but I do have a lot of entertaining lined up too.

Special shot out to Crafty Chica for all her cool recommendations. I also plan on peeping out my homie, Olgaat an event she is vending on Saturday in East Harlem. (Can you say eye candy?) rarrw. hee.

If any of you have any other recommendations, let a sista know!

Also, "Sacred Handbag update":

Bag is leaving Florida and is going to be making it's way to Ohio! (yay)

Besos to all of you and I am so looking forward to another fabulous year with all of you!

PS. pray for my safe return, flying makes me nervous!

A girl's night out

That's right, it was a Puta's night out, and we took our show out of town!

Phulu Designs picked me up her bad ass low rider palace on wheels and we took a cruise down to San Jo. San Jose is my hometown and it is about a 2 hour drive from Sactown. We were meeting baby snatch and Loks for and evening of grub and professional laughs ala the Improv to see none other than the Queen Puta herself, Chelsea Handler.

This self professed alcolic one night seeking Puta is hella funny. If you get a chance read her Bible, I mean book of all her one night stand adventures.

You can get it cheap on Amazon, the name of it is,My Horizontal Life: A collection of one night stands

I know that a lot of us probably can relate to some of her stories. I know I have a few regrets or two. (close your eyes, Momma)

Anyhoo, she has a show on E and here is a clip of what kind of humor we listened too.

If she strolls through your hood, she is definately worth the show.

So we got there early and we hooked up for a cocktail, followed by a yummy dinner at the Chicken Coop. The show started soon after 9pm and lasted about an hour and a half. Since we had a long drive ahead of us, we booked out of there with a quickness.

On the way home we stopped at flying J in Lodi, Ca. What is the Flying J, you ask? It is a new hang out for Phulu! She couldn't get enough of this place and for a second, I though I was going to have to hitch hike home.The Flying J for normal folk is a Truckadero (sp) It is a huge gas station that has a diner, post office, showers, game room, store, chanklas, videos, candy,TV room, car wash, food, ice cream, massage room, etc. etc. It's like a micro city within a city.

When we got there, there were about 60 or 70 trucks camped out for the night. I ain't gonna lie, it was hella intriging to sit there and watch all kinds of peeps walk in and out of the store. We kept making up stories about all the men going in for a hot cup of Joe and or a shower. We fantasized about what they were hauling, who they had in their cabs, if they were single or had families dotted across the country. Being that Phulu is an excellent writer, she couldn't believe all the writing potential walking in and out of that truck stop.After lots of coaxing, she agreed to take me home, but I could see the wheels spinning in her head, and it wouldn't have suprised me if she turned right around after getting me home, and high tailing it back to that seedy dark corner to watch some more of those beefy mens. haha.Anyway, I had a great time hanging with my homies.

I hope your weekend was as equally as beautiful!

For your enjoyment, Phulu, this Juan is for you.....
