Erin is a blossoming artist and craftswoman who loves to find and cherish connections to as much as she can, from the innocence of her inner child to the amazing demeanor of her great-grandmother.

Katie is a musician and the type of friend you wish you’d had as a teenager. She always seeks to find the depth and excitement in the seemingly mundane events of everyday life.
