2 Legit 2 Quit.


Guys. Guys. Seriously.
 I have been wanting to tell you this FORHEVARRRRRR, but, well, it had to happen first. And then it had to be official, because, you know, counting chickens and whatnot. And reeeeeeally, nothing is really REAL until a UPS guy is hauling bolts of fabric up my deadly, deadly front steps, but...
It looks like there will be selvedge with my name on it. Right next to Andover Fabrics. 

How awesome is that? My answer is: pretty awesome. And not only because I will get to pet and cut and sew and fondle the fabric designs I've been working on for the past TWO YEARS, but because I finally know what to tell people when they ask me what I do. Up until now, I've always answered with Buhhhhhhhhh? followed by incoherent ramblings. It's a rare and beautiful thing for a person with an art degree.
And, I am excited! I have so much more to write about this, but it will have to wait for other posts-- for not, there's just one more important detail to mention...
Because of all this awesomeness, and the nature of the whole licensing thing, there are definite changes in store for the Aunt June etsy shop... the biggest one being that I will no longer be selling fabric. What I have listed now is the inventory that I have on hand, and once that is gone, it is gone for the foreseeable future. And while the fabric will be gone, there are other little aunt-juney-nuggets creeping in, so kindly stay tuned for that, kay?
And now, back to your regularly scheduled silly-face-making.
