"I will, I will take care of you,"
To everything that is
Um, I love valentine's day. Sorry y'all. I'm crazy about LOVE, and making love cards is a super special favorite of mine. This is a fun time of year for me!!!
That being said, there is a lot going on now that I'm back in PDX after going home to MA for 6 weeks to help out while a family member struggled through cancer recovery. The housing struggle is real out here, and I don't seem to be on the good end of it. Erg. There is a lot of news in town about different groups being pushed out of Portland, and I don't have much else to add but yeah. It's true. I'm having a hard time getting by and I know a lot of artists who have left.
For right now I'm making do with what I can here in town. I am thoroughly grateful for the support of my crew, a web of lovely souls I have had the good grace of getting to know in my 7 + years here on the west coast. And I continue to make stuff! I have been doing some reconsidering of my programs, printing methods, and whether or not to bring Clover to Etsy... but all of that lies ahead. For now, you can still be sure to watch as my offerings expand in the online shop as the season of love kicks in, and keep your eyes out for changes that 2016 brings.
oh, and keep your fingers crossed for me my dears. It's a jungle out here. xoxo
