While it seems rather frivolous to write a post of this sort, I wanted to mention that my ArtFire and Etsy shops will be shut down for a few days. with the items unavailable for viewing. If there was something there you wished to purchase, do check back and it will be there. I may or may not be able to create blog posts, as well, but hope to re-open all these venues in a week or so. This is not a vacation, trust me, but I wanted to make sure that nobody thinks I have given up on these ventures!
