Happy Weekend!

Ugh. So as I write this, the government has shut down for the second time in less than a month. (Ed Note: Congress passed a spending bill and reopened the government this morning – but still!) My husband is a federal employee, and these repeated shutdowns are both financially scary and really demoralizing. And sadly, it looks like this might be our new normal for a while. So! If you’re interested in supporting Oh So Beautiful Paper and giving my family a boost during this uncertain time, please consider purchasing one of our limited edition art prints in collaboration with Mon Voir. Shipping is free! But in the meantime…

This is heartbreaking and completely unacceptable: A mother of two young children (a 1 year old and 4 year old) has been detained by ICE since mid-January, when she went in to apply for citizenship. 

On immigration: “But if you get a specifically merit-based system… I wouldn’t be here, and chances are neither would you.”

Also, over the past decade, refugees have contributed $63 billion more in government revenues than they cost.


That’s it for me this week. Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you here on Monday! xoxo
