Through today only, you can save 15% on purchases at Lulu with the coupon code: SHADOW. It’s short notice, but now might be a good time to check out my books if you have a urge to read some silly poetry and photos inspired by adorable critters such as hamsters, guinea pigs, squirrels, and more. They also make great gifts and don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching.

Feel free to pass on the info to friends or family who might get a kick out of Hamster Haiku, Squirrel Sonnets & other Rodent Rhymes, or Piggie Poems.


Okay, truth be told, I know at least 2 out of the 3 Tired Girls* had their butts kicked by Comic-Con. Perhaps we are getting old. At some point I might do a proper update. For now, you get a lousy photo.

If you click on the photo, it will take you to flickr where I’ve put some notes to explain what’s what. Thank you to any of you who stopped by! It was especially fun to catch up with friends, some attending SDCC for the first time, and to see repeat customers. Thanks all!

*I need to check in with #3, as well as the boy, to see how they fared.

The Tired Girls survived their 3rd Comic-Con in San Diego last month! This year, we were back to the original three women and had more than enough wares to fill our table. We debuted several new items this year.

Ms. Smith sold her limited edition Biological Clocks, along with a collection of short stories (featuring the well-loved “Mom Fight!”) and a beautiful poetry book made with exquisite paper. Several were purchased as gifts.

Jodi, aka SnarkyDork, once again provided everything that is hamster or rodent. In addition to her book Hamster Haiku, she sold her latest self-published work Squirrel Sonnets & other Rodent Rhymes. There were, of course, hamster balls, but new for this year amigurumi hamsters, which were quite popular.

Ren brought her talent for illustration in new and exciting ways. She had her always in-demand cards,  prints, tote bags, etc. of her Little Dreamers, Rude Food, Nerdy Girl, and others. This year she introduced some very cool new collections including Pirate Grrrrls and Pin-Up Girls for nerds. Very nifty.

We will hopefully be at a craft show or two this winter, just in time for the holidays! Any info will be posted here, so check back or add us to your feed reader.


but really…what could be more entertaining than…HAMSTER BALLS?


So here is a shot of the TIRED GIRL TABLE last year at comic-con:


Now here are some of my more recent creations: tiredgirlpix3.jpg

But things are getting even better…look what we’re working on now:
