It was more than a little bit of a thrill to open @sfgirlbybay today and find my own mug looking back at me. Thank you @sfgirlbybay @etsywholesale @shopsmall for celebrating small businesses in a big way! #shopsmall #SmallBizSat (at Clementine Store)
Daydreaming in 3D on this chilly day. Also, friends, would you share your favorite delicate illustrators and calligraphers. I have a few favorites, but want to expand the search. xx (at Clementine Store)

Opening Clementine a few minutes late today, because a visit and chat with @redhousevt was an irresistible stop. 3rd order from @redhousevt in a month - I love when customers fall for a line as hard as I do!
Monday am delivery to one of the brightest spots with the best creatives I know. Fish I could have stayed to see you @scoutshonorco, but I left you something… (at Study Hall)

I’m thrilled + honored to be one of 10 independent shops across the country that @etsy @etsywholesale & @amex’s @shopsmall campaign chose to highlight on Small Business Saturday for embodying the heart and soul of shopping small. We’re gearing up for SBS #shopsmall now by planning a big ol’ maker focused event in the shop - @jeremyayers, with me here, is my featured artist and I’ll be joined by many more. Set your calendars for Nov 29 to #shopsmall and celebrate the small businesses in your community (and you’re always welcome in mine!). More at: etsy.me/featuredboutiques (at Clementine Store)

Thank you to all of the kiddos who entered out ispy mask contest! We had a ton of entries and loved seeing you all spying our windows! The correct number was 9 and Sadie was chosen out of all of the correct answers - she wins a mask of her choice. (We collected entries and did the drawing from the adorable @redhousevt egg fetching basket!) (at Clementine Store)
It was raining so hard on my walk into work today, rivers formed. I gave in and took my shoes off. Luckily these sweet new arrivals greeted me in the shop. What I’m saying is: if you have a spoon, I have the perfect rainy-day lunch.

I’m over on Oh So @beautifulpaper today sharing every honest bit I can about raising your business and your baby. You’ll get a peek into my actual (vs. imagined day) and a heck of a lot of lobbying for having real conversations with real friends vs reading another article about work/life balance. This one is more personal than most and I hope all of the things I believe and cheer for make your days more forgiving and just plain better. xo

Tomorrow, I share some thoughts on motherhood in Oh So @beautifulpaper. One of the things you may glean is that I’m not the most organized of ladies. But I am excited and optimistic with this sweet gift from @emilyley If anything can turn me@into a planner, it’s this super pretty planner. (Thank you Emily!) (at Clementine Store)

Saturday afternoon painting and listening to podcasts. Hey fave makers and crafters please hop over to @elisejoy and listen to episode 28 with @taragentile. They’re talking about pricing your work. It’s the best intro conversation I can imagine about how to make your business and mine (as a retailer) grow successfully together. (Thanks Tara & Elise!)
This ridge behind our house is what I fell in love with first.
Nice light, little town. (at Middlebury Community House)
