I actually put stuff up in the Etsy shop tonight, and added some Etsymini code to the sidebar of this here blog. I have more record bowls to put up over the next few days, as well as a shop banner to scan, notebooks and flowers to photograph and an application to contribute to the Sampler to put in.

Go, look, heart and give me feedback!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that all of my family and other folks in the Twin Cities are accounted for and were not involved in the bridge collapse. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone up there as they work forward from this tragedy.

P.S. Its not terrorism (duh), there was no seismic activity recorded and the bridge has been inspected on schedule and passed with no concerns
