Sisters of Perpetual Commiseration


You guys. You inspire me! I may be niching down a little bit too much on this here blog but I don’t really care. Especially since I’m going to be amping up soon and I don’t have to worry about mixing business with my fabulous personal life soon. So bring on the menopause sisterhood!

I had a lot of fun designing some pins for you, as you can see. I’m thinking this will be the first edition and there will be others to come after this in different styles and themes maybe even by different artists if anyone wants to join in. I’m already dreaming up a menopausasaurus version. There are so many ways we can go with this! I haven’t designed the packaging yet so if you are feeling wordy and clever shoot me some verbiage.


So pop on over to my shop and get your limited edition pin! The pins are an inch big and I’m going to include a random group of five designs in each package for three bucks plus shipping. If you want a particular design just message me. I can change colors pretty easily.


So fun, right? Maybe we should have a secret handshake (something to do with fanning and wiping our forehead) and have meet-ups. Brendaritas? Chilled towelettes? Fashion shows? Shoulder massages and puppies?


I hope you all like them. I know I’ll be wearing mine if it ever gets cool enough to sport my shredded jean jacket? Did you know Levi jean jackets are back in style? I have one from my dad that is a million years old and the girls constantly beg me to let them borrow it. I tried to buy them one and they are super expensive. What happened to Levi? Crazy.


Anyway, I’m thinking Vsco Grandma might be a thing. What do you think?

    Love this, made me laugh so much this morning ad I need a laugh as our country is in chaos.

    Meanwhile I am hiding out at the farm working on a comic book admiring the acrobatics of the swallows as they dive past. Wish you were here, its really sunny but has that slight bite in the morning which lets you know Autumn is coming. Blackberries and sloes are on the trees so I’m doing lots of picking and getting scratched to ribbons.

    Two years ago today I think you were flying back home after our wedding.

    I think we should work out the gang rules ( fun guidelines to live by… I’ll have a think) secret handshake, password the works :)

    Brendaritas are definitely our favorite beverages to toast our health and coffeee!!

      I have developed a secret handshake with a detailed illustration to match. I’ll email it to you. :)

      Also, so jealous of your farm! I’m definitely coming back some year…

    Oh, I meant to comment on this yesterday (brain fart! fog?) but got too excited over ordering the buttons! I’ll bet you sold out. :)
    I got such a kick out of it when I saw them on IG!
    All in for gang rules haha and can’t wait to see gingermog and your other guest artist versions – fun!
    Thank you SAJ!
