On a personal note: Ever since we went into lockdown, over 5 weeks ago, I have been the one fulfilling Tattly orders. Every Monday I enter our empty office, with a heavy heart, but *so* grateful that there are still orders coming in. I am not sure what the future holds. I had to let most of my staff go, which is something I haven’t been public about, as I am feeling a lot of shame and guilt around it. I am hoping to find a way for Tattly to live on, even considering it might be someone else leading it into its next chapter. The brand is strong and loved and full of potential. Trying to trust and be open to all of the possiblities. Hugs to everyone who is going through a similar experience.

I am fascinated by the idea of the idea of a more feminine economy.

  2. Here’s hoping Tattly finds its way through. It’s been a bright spot in many of my days! Sending support + positivity your way.

  3. I am so deeply sorry about all that you’re doing through with Tattly. I greatly appreciate your vulnerability though sharing. You’re in my thoughts over here in Norway. I can only imagine how much sweat & energy has gone into making the brand be the ray of sunshine it is. Sending lots of love and support.

  4. Hoping that you are able to come through to the other side with Tattly. Thank you for sharing even in this difficult time.
