So, first of all I'll admit that I'd been in a bit of a post-election funk and feeling less than inspired in the studio. As I think I mentioned, we made another big international move over the summer from Vancouver, BC to Portland, OR and while I'm really loving Portland, the move took it out of me and then with the election results on top of that, it was about all I could do to just keep plugging away at the steady enough stream of orders I had coming in. I certainly wasn't feeling like putting any extra effort into expanding my business or creating new work.
But then, something lit a fire in my soul and this line was born. The process of creating it and the absolutely incredible response it received has buoyed my creative passion and lifted me out of my dark place. Thank you, all of you beautiful rebels out there. You give me hope. ♥
PS. I am working as hard and as fast as I can to get all of these orders out, so if you're still waiting, please know that I haven't missed or forgotten about you! I'm sending them out in batches of about 15 a day and hope to be caught up by early next week.
