Something New

Here is the world. Beautiful & terrible things will happen. Do not be afraid.
Quote by Frederick Buechner • Art by Me

I've had a rocky start adjusting to our new home in Santa Cruz. I got a job working for a local green cleaning company, but the the dust and allergens/mold in the homes I cleaned triggered asthma attacks and some awful congestion. I guess I'm not made to be a house cleaner after all.

While I was cleaning other people's houses around the county, I found myself daydreaming about someday launching my own creative career, working from home, managing my own business... it's a dream I can't seem to shake, for better or for worse, despite my attempts to stifle it. So, I'm back!

I will be looking for a new "day job," but in the meantime it's time to dust off the digital shelves at Scoutaroo Paper Co. (fortunately digital dust does not induce asthma) and adding some brand new listings for you, my friends and fans! Your support has been vital, and I hope it will continue to be! I thank you for all of the encouragement you've given me during my hiatus... without it I would never have come back. ♥ Let's see what happens this time around in 2014.

I'll be sharing some previews this week, and a few new listings will be posted at midnight (EST time) on the first day of the new year!

So, what's new with you?

♥ Ciara Kay

    1. Thanks! It was my brother's Christmas gift. :) He's an outdoorsy adventurous rock climbing nut.
