Erin  Portland OR, USA. Greyhounds. Cats. Tiki. Tiny things. More greyhounds.

Making progress on my water bearers card. So close. @halepele #halepele @therealpinkoctopus you wanna go sometime soon? I made you a thing and I want to give it to you. ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿก๐ŸŒ‹๐Ÿ—ฟ

My boys ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

I tried having treats in my hand in order to get a picture of the three of them together. Mixed results.

I made a thing! With help, anyway. I sculpted this tiki tabby mug and @leannecarnes stained/glazed and fired it for me. This lowball sized mug's maiden voyage was a lemon-garnished Trader Vic's grog that I drank on the deck on this not-actually-nice-enough-outside-to-sit-on-the-deck day #tikitabby #tiki #tikimug #tikiasfuck

Oh hai.

I was tagged by @ambysrambles to share 5 things I like about myself in the interest in of celebrating woman and our diversity:
1. I make things. I can pretty much make anything out of anything. Making is key to my sanity. I usually have multiple projects going at once, if I don't have any, I'm probably not ok.
2. I'm particularly fond of making tiny things. If I had a superpower, it would probably be my knack for scale.
3. My making skills are self taught, learned through trial and error. Mostly error. Like, a lot of error. I wish YouTube had been around in the 90's and early 00's when I was learning most of my basic material skills.
4. I love research. I've got a master's degree in social psychology and I spent a decade doing market research (predominantly in the IT space). There are few things I love as much as making an infographic that takes complex research findings and communicates them in a visually appealing and easy to understand format.
5. I am empathetic... to a fault. When I worked in the veterinary industry, it is the reason I was really good and also the reason I could only spend a few years in the field.
Would you like to play @slickster06 @kristenturick @nonniemous @riverandfir and ANYONE else that would like to join in. @dylandoesdoodles I wish Kathy was on IG, it was an honor to walk with her at the march and I'd love to tag her here.

My bread is happy

Today, Wednesday 1st February is 'world galgo day'. this date also marks the end of the spanish hunting season. every year in spain tens of thousands of 'galgos', also known as the 'spanish greyhounds' are bred for the sole purpose of hunting, each one living a short life of fear and cruelty. at the end of the season, no longer of any use, the galgos are killed or abandoned. please join our campaign to help #freethegalgo by posting a picture of your pet or yourself alongside a sign that reads #freethegalgo โค To learn more about the Galgo, please visit @yogalgo #galgolove #worldgalgoday #stoptheabuse #animalabuse #stopgalgueros #galgo #galgosofinstagram #doglove
