handmade holiday

Been shipping off some special orders from the winter collection and trying not to ruin my clothes by painting in between writing fellowship applications and running around to school meetings.

new start

I always feel a wee-bit sad when I take down all the holiday decorations. But then I start cleaning and reorganizing like mad, and I’m happy to have a clean slate.

hands-down: best holiday memory. ever.

tiny boot-ies

I haven’t been writing much on here lately. Just sharing things that sparkle and make me smile. I think things shifted for me a few weeks ago because I’ve been struggling with my health so much.
