first, a self check-in. then, a few holiday offerings.
Hey, y’all—Happy Small Business Saturday!
Today kicks off the holiday rush (if it hasn’t started already) for small business and makers all over the place. But this year, in an attempt to quiet some of the noise, I’m making sure I ask myself these questions. Perhaps they’ll resonate with you, too:
“What do I want to be giving my energy to right now?”
“Do I have the capacity to offer these things?”
“Do I really need to add this new piece to my shop (or new thing to my routine, or this new decoration to my house, or this new ___ to my ___)?”
“Just because I see other makers (people, moms, etc.) doing it, does that mean I should, too?”
Let me be clear—I am SO grateful for being able to create and share beautiful things for a living. And being busy making things that others want to purchase and share is a beautiful
problem gift to have. But I also have a strong desire to resist the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping season and the desperate need manufactured by capitalism to buy and sell lots of—let’s be honest—just stuff.
So while I don’t have a ton of new offerings this year, I do have a few things that I really love! I’ve tried to be selective about what I’m offering, and I hope y’all will also love the things I have put energy into creating.
Below, you’ll find two of the pieces in my new holiday series. The rest of the series will be released in early December. I’ve also highlighted a few oldies but goodies from my shop that would make great gifts for your loved ones (or yourself!).
Important Shop Info & Dates:
I’ll be closing my shop for the year on Sunday, December 18th, and my last run to the post office will be on Monday, December 19th. My website and shop will still be running and able to receive orders, but anything placed after December 18th will ship in the new year.

New Seasonal Designs
From my Holiday 2022 Series—minimal yet colorful designs for this season of togetherness, for all the ways you celebrate. Available as original collage pieces and archival art prints!
Stuck on gifts for loved ones? Here are some offerings currently available in my shop and a little insight into who I was envisioning when I created them. Maybe it will remind you of someone in your own life! Read more about each offering and purchase at the links below.

For the wise ones, the mystic babes, and the contemplative cuties:
For the one who would rather be at home drinking tea:
For the one who likes to choose their own adventure:
Thanks for coming along on this journey with me—I can’t wait to share with you all the things I have in store for 2023! Be well, y’all, and enjoy your loved ones this holiday season. <3
Sending you lots and lots of love,
