I’ve finally opened my Etsy shop! And it feels like it’s taken forever. And…I’m still not finished adding everything. I have a lot more initials to complete!

Yesterday I picked up the giant roll of giclee prints at a fabulous local print shop called Concept Link. The man who runs it, Nadeem, is FABULOUS to work with.
