White Aggression in West St. Louis County

We were in the process of moving from St Louis just as everything heated up. This was written by the pastor of our church in St Louis. I have friends who are doing good, trying to make a difference, and that makes me proud.

And the stones shall cry

In October, Love First, Emerson Unitarian Universalist Chapel’s Social Justice Team, made the decision to host a weekly vigil for racial justice in Chesterfield MO, a western suburb, at one of the busiest intersections of town, Boone’s Crossing and Chesterfield Airport Road.

New product listings

I haven’t been working on making anything new, since we moved, so I’ve been spending time sorting through my inventory, making new product listings.

There are new listings in the Holiday, Wind Chimes, and Sun Catcher categories. I will be finishing up listing the chimes and sun catchers in the next couple of days, then finishing up the ornaments, before I start listing the polyhedral  dice necklaces. All new listings will be posted by December 1st.

Cobwebs and snowflakes

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything here. The summer was a whirlwind. We moved to Colorado, and finally have a house, and are getting settled in. With that, I am finally getting back to work after two months of doing absolutely nothing with my business, and five months since my last show. I’m dusting off the cobwebs, and shoveling the snowflakes so that I can get back to work.

With that being said, there are new items listed in my Etsy shop, and I have changed my shipping policy to free shipping all the time, on everything. Feel free to take a look around. I’ll be adding more things daily. https://www.etsy.com/shop/1LeftofCenter
