Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality

It's a complicated and messy issue. I rarely take a lot of interest in sociopolitical debates like this, but the Internet is a pretty big part of both my job and my husband's. Plus, the government and telecom companies seem to have trouble getting things right on their own, let alone together. Etsy is pretty vocal about their point of view, which you can read here.

Etsy asked for artists to "craft their comment," so this is what I came up with.


This was also my first time trying to do a gradient on this motif and I love how it turned out. It's going to be fun to add more of these to my store!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

The Story Behind the Name

I really love hugs. In my opinion, the very best kind of hug is the two-handed standy-uppy hug. It started as an inside joke with my family, and the name still makes me smile. It’s a completely intentional kind of hug that really shows someone you value them. How do you give one? Put down whatever is in your hands, mentally set aside whatever is on your mind, focus on the person you are going to hug, stand up and wrap them up in a big squeeze. It may not seem like a big deal, but taking 30 seconds to give someone a sincere hug can totally change their day.
