To be honest, I am ambivalent about Black Friday.

I read stories about people trampling each other to death in big box stores to save money, and it makes me pretty certain that our culture is mentally ill. When I used to work in an office, I hung up a Buy Nothing Day poster in my office window for the entire month of November.

And then I went into business and my livelihood depended on selling things to people, and I felt like a huge hypocrite.

It's hard for me to get past that.

The thing is, I am an artist. And in our culture, I can't continue to be an artist unless people buy things from me. Which, honestly, is better than kings and queens supporting me, I think.

And I think if you buy something from me, it's because you love it and you want it and you like to support small businesses and makers.

So I am not having a Black Friday sale. I am having a Gratitude Sale.

This time of year, I like to think about all the things I am grateful for. I am grateful for the roof over my head, for electricity, for a working furnace, for clean running water, for a studio to work in, for a loving partner, for a more or less sound mind and body, and for you, my customers.

So, a Gratitude Sale. Enter the coupon code GRATITUDE when you check out any time tomorrow through Monday (11/23/17 - 11/27/17) and get 20% off any purchase in the shop.

Want to buy a gift for someone, but you're not sure what to get? I have gift cards now.

Yep, they're on sale too.

And just because I wanted something pretty to show you, here's a new bracelet design.

It's available in four sizes, so whether you're tiny or large or in between, you'll be able to get it on, and it won't fall off.

What are you grateful for?
