My Shimpo VL whisper is here, but it arrived with a cracked lower housing.  Shimpo is sending me a new one.  I haven’t turned it on yet- will do so today!

I have hired Katie to make some chibi manga drawings for my mugs.  I’m very excited about this new idea, and she is excited to be getting paid for her art!

Barring complications I have decided to start back to work on the 12th.  I have already started taking custom orders.  I hope this is a good and productive year!
