Tuesday Links

How are you? I'm le pooped! And it's only Tuesday so someone remind me to pencil in a nap. I had a bit of a meltdown this weekend (it had been a few weeks so I was due for one, you know) about who really knows what. It was a lot of things, but of course it surfaced in the middle of Anthropologie when a giant cookbook  (why do I choose the heaviest gifts?) was forcing a plastic bag to permanently dent my arm, and I was shaking because I forgot to eat, and I only needed to purchase one little thing but the line was seventy-four-tourists long. And then I hobbled home with all my bags, tubes of wrapping paper nearly knocking out innocent bystanders, to unlock 3 doors, make it up the stairs, and plop down in the two square feet of floor space we have "free." I know I'm like a broken record over here, but I really look forward to the days of lugging stuff in a ample a separate living room...and a Christmas tree bigger than a branch. I moved here at the ripe age of 21 and here I am, at 28, feeling...tired. NYC, ya wear me out girlfriend.

In happier news, I am SO tickled with all the shop orders this past week! You guys are the best, and have no idea how much I appreciate your support.  I've been working on my last dog illustration (2 wee ones in one drawing!) of the year which has been a lot of fun & a needed escape :) The studio is a little backlogged with printing, but I should have some Christmas cards stocked by the weekend in case you need any.  FYI, I will be mailing out final holiday orders on Friday, December 20th! Shop will be closed 12/21 - 1/2 while I unplug.

p.s. LINKS!
