i'm starting my own company


and i'm telling you and the universe as a kind of announcement. it has a name that dear friends already know and a few items almost ready for sale and the skeleton of some rather good idea bones.

i daydream about it.


when the thought struck me as a piece of sky that fell, i met it with such gusto. this was it! that thing you do all your life for fun anyways and then one moment realize when your head is turned that it's the work you should be doing. i went to goodwill and bought tweed jackets. i sketched shapes and beaks and french berets. i sewed a few animals to start. some had handkerchiefs.



i can't tell you when my wee shop will open, (only that it will), and i couldn't say for sure all the things i'll have to sell but i can tell you that i'm going to love creating stuff and collecting stuff and thinking about all the ways i can package the stuff up with thoughtful intent before sending it out in the world.

(by parcel and priority post!).
