"Vacation Mode" for the Studio for a While

Hi friends. I've been going back and forth on whether or not to write this blog post. I don't often share personal information here, but have decided I will today.

I'm putting my shop in "vacation mode" for at least a couple of weeks if not longer. My family suffered a great loss this past weekend. My sister, Melody, passed away quite suddenly. I've been in a daze, to be completely honest. I'm sure you can understand that basic response to such heartbreaking news. I've decided to put both shops (Etsy and on hold for a bit. I'm hoping to be ready to open within a couple of weeks, but I'm not going to rush things.

I'll also be fairly absent on all social media, so if I don't reply to a tweet, FB mention or Instagram shot right away, please don't take it personally. Thank you for all the kind emails I've received so far. I have "met" so many wonderful friends through social media. I feel the love and support.

Life is precious, and often too short. Give your loved ones an extra hug tonight.
