Yes, we're having the shelf raid panics, and folks are donning face masks, and the restaurants and bars have closed, but the city is allowing take out orders. . .including cocktails. Plus you can't beat the entrepreneurial spirit of New Yorkers, last evening, an ice cream truck came through our neighborhood.
We've been carefully following protocol but have also found ways to get out into nature (safely 6 feet away from others) and get some vitamin D.
Business wise, I'm grateful that I'm not dealing with cancelled shows and events, but I didn't expect it to be so eerily quiet on my website. So in lieu of bags to make and orders to ship: I've trying to keep my anxiety at bay thru experimenting with new materials like a tire (!), vintage leather jackets, and even some selvedge fringe left over from my old studio mate.
At home I've been trying to teach our dog, Franny to roll over, but haven't had much success: (If anyone has tips on how to get a dog who sploots to roll over, email me!).

If you love animals:

8. If it's not re-sellable, or you *think* it's not worthy of donation, and have the urge to throw it away, think again! Read why you should donate ALL of your unwanted clothes even hole-y underwear.
9. Wash your handbags. Here's how >
Organize your photos on your phone:
And speaking of: support a local business! Even if you can't spend money right now, you can spread the love for free:
Breaking in my new boots by wearing them around the house!
Crystalyn, I so enjoyed this posting. I now know more about how you and David spend your time. I didn’t know Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment was a place! And that Franny…sitting is not in her doggie description 🐶🥰
Thanks for the tips Crystalyn! Stay safe!
