Amazing! Spectacular! and Super Secret...

What happens when some of the best graphic designers in Seattle-all of whom are former design interns or volunteers-get together to work on a project of galactic proportions? We can't tell you! At least not until May 14th when the Greenwood-Phinney neighborhood hosts the 15th annual Artwalk. Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime alignment of artists and non-profit resourcefulness. Additional details soon!

All This Rain Got You Down In the Mud?

When you wake up to a sky as grey as the sidewalk and you need two pea coats and a rain jacket just to go get your grande soy chai latte, you know its spring time in Earth’s most space traveling neighborhood, Greenwood. I know that it may be hard to notice any change in the weather between April and March (or March and February for that matter) but extensive research conducted here at the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. has shown that the sunshine is indeed on its way. 

So what better time than now to start your very own garden? It’s easier than ever thanks to the helpful folks at Dr. Darwin's Breath of Life, distributors of high quality terraforming -- and gardening -- necessities. We have everything you need to start a vibrant garden of vegetables or flowers, from matchbook seeds to zucchini in a can! 

For the impatient planter, we also feature a line of easy to use planetariums sure to get your seeds germinating faster than you can say geranium (also guaranteed to work in zero-gravity environments). 

For those of you planning to spend your spring and summer off world, the patented seal design of our all-in-one plant-in-a-can allows for both safe travel and simple sprouting. In no time you’ll be trading tomatoes for blurbnarts with your alien pals! 

If your are still not convinced that now is the perfect time to start your very own garden, the friendly folks here at the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. are proud to announce that we are parents of two lovely sunflowers, Hank and Lee-a. While you take a moment to soak in these little guys, don’t you think it’s about time you settled down and raised a garden of your own? We do.  Hurry in and say “hi” while supplies last.

Hey Kids-It's New!


PRACTICAL USES: You never know where (or when) your travels will take you, or how far you'll be from a functioning laundromat. Terrors unforeseen,  long queues, or simple forgetfulness are trials all travelers must face at some point and, as we like to say, its always best to be better prepared.

NOTES: Emergency Underpants are for use in emergencies only. Emergency Underpants fits most adults and are always ready to use.

IDEAL FOR:  Anyone who scares easily, forgetful people Ages 3+

MAP of the (Known) UNIVERSE up for an AWARD!

We just received word from Spencer Charles, our summer-2009-special-guest design intern, that the Map of the Known Universe has been accepted into Utah’s AIGA 100 Show (a design competition for professionals). The Map—designed by Spencer and written by 826 Seattle volunteers—is also eligible for a People’s Choice Award. A pretty darn’d nifty accolade, if we do say so ourselves.

Help Spencer win the People’s Choice Award: visit http://aigaslc100show.com/peoples-choice/ and click on the stars below the image of the Map (about 2/3 down the first page if entries)!
