If there’s one thing you should know about us, it’s that we are making this up as we go. We had an idea; we invite you to watch it unfold. You will not find expertise here. You will find blind faith, four hands reaching in a thousand directions, and two very headstrong girls.
The “we” is us. Amy Bornman + Jessie Epstein. We met in college doing theater and having lots of feelings. We once mutually played an ugly sad queen in a very physically demanding play, and that situation sort of irreversibly bonded our hearts/brains. We also share quite a few intense personal loves and intense personal differences. We are the same, we are different. Let us count the ways!
(P.S. That cartoon is pretty cute, right? It – and the other cartoons you will find on this website, including our logo and stroke icons – were designed by our pal Jack Meriwether. Go visit his website, jackmeriwether.com, for cute designs of your own.)

Down to party.
Really into figuring out how to making things with textiles and taking emotional baths. Recently obsessed with tea. Partial to staying home and podcasts. Pizza-eater. Married to Isaiah (she doesn’t deserve him and he doesn’t deserve her and marriage is awesome and mind-boggling!). Obsessed with striped shirts and being warm enough. Trying to figure out a little spot in the world.

Dreads writing bios, but once asked 9 of her friends to write her into the narrative of her own life. Wears fur. Often misses her exit because she is thinking about something else. Believes in magic. Takes long walks in her bathrobe. Maintains certain Billy Joel songs were written about her. Knows her props. Tells the same story more than once. Rarely bored.

Have a question? Want to tell us something? Want to shower us with compliments or send us a letter or a care package or a bucket of gold coins? You can do it here! We will get back to you as soon as we can!
Reference image – the sad queen era. Where the magic began. And, yes, that is yogurt in Amy’s hand.
