Meet MANBUSH.

photo nudie 764x1024 Meet MANBUSH. All ye with sensitivities toward era-specific privates talk, close your eyes! The rest of you, read on.

You know how we all talk about (well, ok – I’ll speak for myself) “lady bush”? Come on, don’t be weird. It’s the puffy pubic plethora we all know from our favorite 70s pornos. Remember? Maybe you’ve seen it from grainy Woodstock footage? Maybe you have no idea what I’m talking about? (What! Yes you do…)

I offer you this, familiar friends: a new term. MANBUSH. I seen it with mine own eyes in the store today, people! A yarn-y homage to untamed penis bangs!

Anyway, these hot knitted fella’s are a steal. And with those looks, they won’t be hanging around for long.

They’ve gotta wash their “hair”…

Taxider-ME.

I’m mildly (read: religiously) obsessed with this ad: Ojai Taxidermy

…Aw, you hate it. (NOPE! Ya don’t!) And while I firmly believe living things should keep on living their happy lives if possible, I’m a little crushy on badass taxidermy. We have a few creatures in the store…

They maaaay or may not be getting valentines from me this year. (“I’m stuffed with love for you! Be mine!”)

But there are some hard core taxidermists out there in the world. Makin’ dead animalz look all pretty n s***. (We see you Necromance, Deyrolle, MaryaZoya, Custom Creature…)

Rabbit ears. Bows are so last season.

Who’s angry about crabs!

*Skunks totally look like this in Los Feliz… (Well, I’m sure they both smell the same!)

tax06 Taxider ME.

GAH! Too much! Too much!

tax04 Taxider ME.

I could not drink that booze. And that is saying a lot.

I feel like we’ve shared something today. Something furry and formaldehyde-y.

Some fun facts about Spitfire Girl Wood Products!

Spitfire Girl Wood Facts!

Where and How do you get the wood for your products?

Our suppliers travel the nation looking for the very best trees for our cards, making sure to select them responsibly. Logs are shipped from across the nation and around the world . Spitfire Girl and our suppliers are firm believers in keeping our environment healthy, and in turn only purchases logs from companies that employ sustainable yield harvesting procedures.  We do not purchase wood that has been illegally harvested (as much wood from China is uncertified, it is not purchased from there).  All Spitfire wood products are made, printed, and assembled in the USA.

Is your company or the wood used FSC certified?

Our supplier is currently in the process of being FSC certified. They have submitted all paperwork and have undergone inspections to complete the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification process. They are expecting the process to be complete soon, but currently do not have a completion date at this time. Although they are not officially certified, conserving and protecting the environment is extremely important to them and us and in turn only purchase logs from companies that employ sustainable yield harvesting procedures.

Is the wood biodegradable?

Yes! Since the wood is 100% natural, the card will biodegrade. No type of chemicals are used in the process of production and will not harm the environment during the decomposition process.

Can you write on the wood?

Yes, we suggest a ball point pen. Gel pens or markers with a wet ink tend to bleed in the wood grain.

Can you mail the postcards?

Yes! You can mail them as you would any other postcard, using the current postcard postage.

Sometimes the wood cards curl a little bit, is this product damaged?

No, the product is not damaged.  Keep in mind that this product is 100% real wood and will be affected by temperature and humidity. The wood, over time wants to return to its natural rounded shape.  Gently fold the cards back in the opposite direction,  if it’s being particularly curly, place under a few books for a while, and that will return it to the flat shape.

It seems that we receive our packages in previously used boxes and/or reused packing materials, why?

We do reuse boxes and packing materials.  We feel it is more eco-friendly to repurpose our packing materials, as this is more carbon neutral,than simply recycling.  We do purchase recycled cardboard boxes, as needed, and pack with recycled brown kraft paper. Any other peanuts or bubble wrap, has been recycled to ship our product safely to you.  If you prefer only new packing materials, please let us know, and we are happy to fulfill your request.

Fun Fact…

  1. Did you know it takes less wood to make one of our wood postcard than the average paper card?



How The Robot Came To Life.

I thought it would be cool to share how the best selling Spitfire Girl image came about.

This is how the short story goes…..

While in divorce court 6 years ago, My soon to be ex-husband on one side with his “partner” and I on the other side, alone. It was awkward and I was bored. So  to kill time I started sketching Mr. Robot. Here are the original sketches.
