These are interesting times. I don’t really like to discuss my personal life online AT ALL. Here will be no exception. Need to know basis. I’m secretive to a fault. Except for some things. I’ve been sharing my creative process with you for years. No trade secrets jealously guarded, because why bother? The internet allows you to look up just about anything; no mysteries there. I always like to show my work, because one thing that drives me absolutely crazy is when people say: “Oh, you’re so talented.” Like the hours upon hours I spend honing my craft of perfect stitches, and tiny lines, shaving off bits of curves to get the fit just right don’t count for anything. A genie blink and an omnipresent GOD(DESS) guiding my hands like I have nothing to do with anything, and out pops the thing. No, I work really really hard. And I want you to see that. I’m trying to convince you that you can do it too if you want it bad enough to dedicate the hours upon hours it takes.
So I’ve been on a hiatus of sorts. Helping friends with their businesses, taking care of myself and my very old cat, who being on the cusp of 21 and with some random scary health issues is actually still doing pretty well all things considered.. Even in my hiatus I’ve been working away. Honing my drawing skills, working on a collaborative project with my dear friend Brent Wear, and trying to kickstart myself back into sewing; which I dearly miss. So slowly by slowly you will be seeing the occasional sewn things re-appearing in my Etsy shop. I’m not separating any of it out, because i’m just not. Be confused or not. I feel like if you’ve been following me for long enough, you know I am not so monogamous to one medium. Drawing is an everyday part of my life now, and so is sewing.
So once again I am going to tell you to follow me on Instagram. Not only will you be seeing my creative process, I will be offering first dibs on everything that I will be selling before it goes to Etsy; likely for a little bit less that it will be offered there. Why? Because I want my core followers who have been with me forever to have the first opportunity of my work. Thank you for supporting me for all these years, it means the world to me.
