We have two new merch items available for you now! A few months ago, I was working on a cute painting of two cats while I was also doing everything in my power to try to get an application for a property I wanted to rent, approved. We had a suspicion that they might be making it difficult for us to get approved because they didn’t want to house our Emotional Support Animal, Rosa. We …Read More
Just a few months ago I re-published my article, “Creating Social Change One Person at a Time,” in which I talked about how the impact you have on individual people around you can, in itself, be a form of social activism. Denny Upkins is back to demonstrate exactly how this phenomenon can happen and the ripple effect it can create. CN: general discussion of racism and homophobia An author by the name of J.D. Stroube …Read More

CN: discussion of racism, homophobia, transphobia, and explicit violence toward the LGBT community– especially transgender folks; mention of abuse, AIDS epidemic, and addiction.

Happy Pride! A goal we made for ourselves for the summer was to get into pattern design and start uploading them to Spoonflower (another Print on Demand site that specializes in fabric & wallpaper). I asked a friend if there were any patterns she wished existed that she hadn’t seen before and she said, D&D Dice!

Do you remember a time when you were a child and an adult in your life changed something in you for the rest of your life? Maybe they were the only person who believed in your ability to achieve your dreams. Maybe they taught you kindness and compassion towards the people you found difficult to forgive. Maybe they saw you for who you were and reflected you as good and valuable when no one else had before. Even just a small word of encouragement can be important enough to us at that age that we remember it for decades. That person that helped you probably has no idea that they affected you so much, even if that impact lasted a lifetime. What if you could be that person for someone else?
What if you could be that person for dozens of people? Or hundreds? Imagine the reverberations of your actions throughout the world as each of those people carry that change with them through life.
