So. Here I am. It's been quite a year of beginnings. In the past year, me and the dog moved to a new town (Portland) in a new state. I started a new business in a newly learned craft (metalsmithing). It was just over a year ago that I started my jewelry shop on Etsy. Feels like there's lots more that's new and I'm sure I'll think of it a 3:17am. If I remember, I'll tell all later. Not at 3:18am. And now I'm beginning this blog.
