Still Alive!

Hello world... uh, again. I'm still here. Still cutting paper, taking custom requests, filling wholesale orders, and still loving that I get to call all of this "my job." While Crafterall the business hasn't slowed down at all since getting off the ground over 14 years ago, Crafterall the blog is, ahem, pretty dusty. Back in 2007, the blog started as a way to keep my friends and family up to date on this crazy idea to start a business, and then in 2012, it was geared to gain more viewers and (hopefully) more buyers. But this time, I'm throwing the idea of a target audience out the window, and my goals will only be to share and be heard. There's a real, breathing person behind these paper artworks, and that's me. As my photo reveals, I've gotten older, wrinklier, grayer, and all of the other things that typically accompany "leveling up" in years. And, as shouted joyously in one of my favorite BTS songs, "So What?!" 

I've got a new web site (thanks, honey), a new newsletter feature to subscribe to all the new blog posts, and hopefully a new take on what it means to run a business, be an artist, be a mom, and just be. Welcome to the Crafterall Blog 3.0.
