This week has been a little boring, mostly because I've been finishing the Bumbles and getting them ready to send out (tomorrow!). So I've been seeing yellow and black in front of my eyes for so long...I am so proud of them, and so happy about the sale, but I can't say I'm not happy to be finished!

In non-Bumble news, I met an awesome new friend! The lovely and talented Jordan Elise of Horrible Adorables, to be specific. She came over for an art day and we spent hours upon hours making stuff, drinking wine, eating fattening foods from a local bakery, and and swapping stories. I'm thankful to have people like this so close by - Northeast Ohio can feel a bit barren sometimes when it comes to artsy folks who are cool with being "the strange one" in most situations, so I'm always super happy when I meet someone new. Definitely check out her Etsy Shop, she makes quirky, friendly creatures out of a million-billion hand-placed pieces of wool felt. So great!
