Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!

      Doing a lot of work I can’t post about yet! The Wayward retreat is just about a month away, and there’s an endless list of things to do. We’ve got two, week-long sessions full of talented women that we have to feed and craft an amazing, creatively-fulfilling experience for, and it’s so tempting to post about some of the stuff we’ve come up with. But no! Mustn’t risk spoiling surprises for the retreaters. So instead, here’s an older shot of me with my two co-planners, Mad Dog and Shing, metaphorically surveying the horizon.

      He did this entirely on his own. Nearly stepped on him.

      All the available pieces from Guide to Minor Gods and Household Spirits are now also in the Circus Posterus “originals” section, which makes purchasing simpler, on CircusPosterus.com

    • Going to take this time to revisit the idea of doing a Patreon. Could be a way to go.

      We have a lot of serious, important Wayward Retreat meetings, but sometimes we also do tea tastings to pick the right blend for the week. #detailoriented

    • The other thing that’s taking up all my brain for the next couple months is the Wayward Retreat! This is the first year we opened it up to applicants in an additional session, and we’re committed to making it amazing. 

      This is also the first year it’s being run as a “we!” When it was just one week of friends, I did it myself for funsies. Now that it’s a Real Thing, Shing and Mad Dog (her name is Lauren, but she goes by Mad Dog) and I are meeting and planning and arguing all the time about how this can be the best thing we can create. 

      Here’s a dramatization of what it’s like when 3 women with strong opinions collaborate:

      Me: Okay, cool. So we’ve set the programming for Tuesday. By the way, I’m going to buy this throw blanket for the couch.

      Mad Dog: What? It’s brown. That’s all wrong. Our color story for the living room tells the story of the theme and it HAS to be green.

      Me: No, I COMPLETELY disagree. You’re not understanding how brown conveys the concept of our OVERALL goals, and green would completely ruin it.

      Mad Dog: You are 100% wrong and you’re never going to change my mind on this.

      Me: You could not be more entirely wrong about literally everything.

      Shing: ….Do we NEED a throw blanket?


      (I love them)
