Spring Product Sneak Peek! Launching Monday!

Hey ya'll! I wanted to give you a sneak peek of some new products hitting the virtual Gingiber shelves on Monday.

I am expanding our ever popular black sheep illustration to include a charmingly content gray sheep, and a slightly despondent brown sheep.

There will be a few other new items as well on Monday, but I am so tickled by how cute these precious sheep are I just had to show you! You will be able to purchase them as a trio, pick 2, or individually. 

What other products would you like to see at Gingiber?

The Four Finger Fundraiser Pop- Up Shop

Have you heard about the Four Finger Fundraiser to benefit Perrodin Supply Co? I cannot believe that I haven't told you all about this amazing fundraiser yet (silly me). I have had the privilege of working with 40 artists across the country to organize a special fundraiser to help my dear friends, Jonathan & Amber Perrodin.

2 weeks ago, Jonathan Perrodin, the sole wood worker for Perrodin Supply Co., amputated his right index finger in a tragic woodworking accident. In a moment, their lives changed. Now they are trying to figure out how to move forward with their business, but the damage to Jonathan's finger has resulted in loss of time, as well as huge medical bills.

That's where we come in! In an amazing show of support, handmade artists and makers across the states have decided to organize a fundraiser. Beginning on Monday, March 11th, donated goods are being sold in an online pop up shop, and all of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Perrodin family to help them during this time of uncertainty.

Artists supporting artists. The handmade community gathering together and strengthening one another. It is a beautiful thing.

 You can go ahead and preview all of the AMAZING donated items at our pop-up shop, 

Shop opens tomorrow, Monday, March 11th! Please show up and purchase some amazing goods and help out the Perrodins :)

Hello again. I just got both kid's down for a nap. Nathan is out at a jam session (he loves to play the drums), and I am actually sitting. Doing nothing for a moment. I just had a lovely chat with a dear college friend, and now I am thinking about the next item to check off of the "to-do" list.

Yesterday was a rough day. The day before that was a rough day. I could go through the laundry list of things that have been going wrong (including my laundry room flooding, being pulled over, losing my debit card, etc.) but instead I will tell you about a few nice things.

My friends brought us dinner last night. Just to be nice since my day had been hectic. A community of friends, customers, and artists supported me through a small squabble involving my artwork's copyright being infringed upon. The sun is shining. My pants are looser. And for a brief moment today my soul has been at peace.

Whether or not this is an artificial peace brought on my some antibiotics I am on has yet to be determined. However, I guess sometimes when everything is going wrong, all you can do is sit still.

And dream. I've always had a vision of what our life would look like at this point in our lives. Now maybe it is time for the dream to change. Or shift. Or to become portable.

My heart has been heavy for a while now. I am ready to fill lighter.

Here's to springtime.

52 Weeks of Dogs: Week 9: Scottish Terrier

Have you ever seen a puppy Scottish terrier? I mean do yourself a favor and google the. Because I think that they are the cutest, boxiest little pups I've ever seen! 

I feel like I need to catch up on dog drawings. For a while I was ahead of the game, having a few reserved in case I had a busy week. This week has been exceptionally challenging. Lots of little life obsticles to overcome. 

But at least we can look at cute dog drawings, right? That has to make the day better.

Have a suggestion for a dog you would like to see in this series? Leave a comment below :)
