As I get ready to meet with some of my fellow makers for a workshop. I find myself thinking about the importance of small businesses. In this past year alone, a lot of the small business that I grew up with or came to love have closed their doors. It seems like every time you turn on the news you hear about some beloved community shop, bookstore, bar, etc. going out of business. It shows me the importance of supporting your beloved community businesses by shopping small. As a small business owner, I would be lying if I said this is an easy path to follow. The truth is it’s a roller coaster with many twists and turns. If you can manage to hold on, you can ride it out to success.

It takes support and community to grow a...

Everything from initially being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis to then having that changed to IBS to recently finding out I have colonic inertia. After seeing my stretched, looped and out of place intestines, the one thing that stuck with me is that I have not b...
