Link Love: Gimme A Break.

2020 continues to provide a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Whatever your stance on American politics, the fact that the election is over and, as far as I can tell, a decision has been reached without violence, has provided everyone with a sense of relief.

But 2020 is a gift that just keeps on giving. I’m not sure if you saw but the manufacturer that I partner with to make my rubber stamps had a tragic fire two weeks ago. My heart breaks for them knowing the catastrophic loss. (No one was hurt but the shop, equipment and inventory was lost.)

Selfishly, this also means that my stamp inventory may be out of stock a bit longer than usual while I work to find with a new vendor in the interim. The awesome Margaret of Paper Pastries has volunteered to help me with my stamp needs while my original vendor gets back on their feet.

Then news hit that my friend and cohort Brad Dowdy broke his arm. How? Playing Pickle Ball. It’s a recreational sport usually played while drinking (cause of the accident? Maybe…). Brad is likely to make a full recovery but, in the meantime, his writing hand is out of commission. Really, 2020, we are all tired of your crap.
