May Shop Dates
The shop will be open from May 1 – May 27!
It opens at 8 AM EDT on the 1st and closes at 11 PM EDT on the 27th. Once the shop closes, it will remain closed until fall when I’ll open up with some seasonal selections and other new pieces. All orders will be shipped once a week on Wednesdays.
What to Expect
This shop update is all about the Classics! It’s been a few years since I was last active online, and my tools, process, and style have all changed quite a bit, so it’s time for a refresher. This shop update will include all the classic pieces of mine available for sale, and after that, they’re retiring to the vault for some well-deserved rest and are unlikely to return in the future.
So if you’ve ever wanted to get a specific piece from my previous years’ work, this is your last chance!
Let’s take a look at some of these retiring classics, shall we? I’ll also give you a bit of behind the scenes for a few of them and talk a bit about the inspiration behind them.
Gift wrapping options will be available should you need them, and you’ll also have the option to request upcycled packaging and shipping materials for your order!
Oh, how I loved making Beloved. This is one of my favorite pieces. I wanted to make a piece that showed someone being loved tremendously, by both others and themself.
I included a lover’s draped arm, a little love note, plants and candles, and other details invite you to look closer and feel the love.
I really enjoyed making Hidden. I wanted to make a piece about the idea of “hidden” disabilities because I get frustrated with how people will often ignore signs of disability even when they’re right in front of them.
So this piece includes a lot of the signs of disability that don’t always get the recognition they deserve: how many can you recognize?
From Bed was a piece I made to reflect the reality of how many of us disabled people work from, let’s say, unconventional areas 😂 For many of us that spot is the bed!
I wanted to make this piece to honor that reality and show a space that’s dedicated to supporting yourself as a disabled person trying to make things work.
Post Shower was one that really resonated with a lot of people because of how common this post-exertional fatigue is. I imagine a lot more people with Long COVID are now being introduced to this symptom these days, and if that’s you, I want you to know that you’re not alone!
Okay, this one isn’t going to be retired this year, but I did want to spotlight it here to let you know it’ll be in the shop!
That’s it for today’s preview! Set your reminders for May 1st at 8 AM EDT through May 27th at 11 PM EDT for your last chance to bring home one of these classic pieces!
