I've been invited to participate in a holiday pop-up shop co-sponsored by Etsy and west elm. There are a number of these happening at west elm stores all over the country; I'll be at the Oakbrook store on Thursday, Dec. 1 from 6-9 p.m. If you're a west surburban fan of urban legend, come out and see me; I'm looking forward to it! My friends CircaCeramics and Laura George will be there, too. If you don't want to come for me, you should really come for them. They're very good, and I won't feel slighted at all.
