of #blubirdsupplies. And Gratitude.

So, I've been up since 3 am, and as I'm writing this, I'm sitting in the trashed remains of what was once considered a habitable space. Thankfully, the floors are clean, because my sister-in-law took pity on me while hanging with my kiddos today. But that's pretty much the only thing going for it right now. My house is in shambles. But it is done. #blubirdsupplies is not only a reality, but today it joins its fiber brothers and sisters in a proper, real live retail space. It's small, but it's real. And it is PRETTY. Oh so pretty.

I know, I know. I didn't make them myself. But let's be real. There's only so much I can make with these two hands. And while I feel very strongly that an artisan's work be priced appropriate to the time and skill that they invest in creating handmade, I'm also a realist. Makers cannot exist on handspun alone. Well, you could. But you'd be broke. As a joke. If you've ever bought 200 yards of handspun, you know what I'm talking about.
