Oh my gosh! I did NOT mean to leave this alone for as long as I did! Some issues have cropped up that have prevented me from doing the video thing (namely not having the same schedule as Sandy and the laptop my webcam is on being on the fritz atm).

But I wanted to drop in a note. We are still adjusting to the very small town atmosphere that the city we moved to has. It's strange being back in a small city after having spent 8 years in very large ones.

Regardless of all that, I DO have pictures from the day after I arrived (I moved in a few days after Sandra did). So be aware the apartment was an utter wreck. We hadn't figured out where everything was going, hadn't unpacked anything or moved any furniture out of where it was the first day. So I apologize for the understandable mess!

Also, I sent out thank you e-mails shortly after we moved. If you HAVEN'T received your e-mail with discount coupon codes in it, PLEASE let me know and I will be more than happy to re-send them to either the same or a separate e-mail.

And of course, the Etsy shop is still open, with 29 and counting different items to choose from. Thank you again so much for all your help.

We have officially moved into the new apartment. There are boxes everywhere and we're still trying to find everything, but we DO have a new apartment.

Pictures, video and more will be coming soon.

My name is Rowen, I'm 28 years old and I live in Seattle with my 32 year old, disabled sister, Sandra. And we're in serious trouble.


It's really hard, asking for help. I'm used to clawing my way through anything and toughing out everything on my own. Usually, this means tightening my belt. But recently it's meant putting off bills until they have to be paid or risk getting shut off, not replacing threadbare clothes and not getting medication and other help that's needed.


Sandra suffers from severe social anxiety, depression, PTSD...etc. She's currently on disability - a fixed, and very low income. After her portion of the bills and medication, there's nothing left.


I'm desperately looking for a job, and while I've had a few seasonal jobs since I graduated, they don't last or pay enough to pay bills, let alone save. I'm getting very small amounts from writing and crochet amigurumi sales, but it's nowhere near enough to pay my half of the bills. At this rate we'll likely end up on the streets this winter.


Our landlords aren't forgiving. It's a place we want to get out of, but without the money to pay for a deposit – we can't move to a cheaper place. The landlords have raised our rent by almost $130 a month, and it's far more than we can afford. We desperately need to find a safe place for both of us, that we can afford.


We need your help. Please. This situation is desperate. We HAVE to put in a 20 day notice by the 10th of September. Because of a loophole in our lease, we had to stay an extra month or pay a lot more in the long run. We're now down $1000 of what we'd managed to save back. It means we're almost $1500 short of what we need.


There's an Etsy store if you would like to buy my crochet amigurumi creations well as donating. http://www.etsy.com/shop/WovenWhimsyCCC This is where I'm offering discounts for the different reward levels.


We've got nothing to offer right now. We're selling off stuff just to try and make ends meet. Offering the discount on Etsy almost negates any profit - but I don't have anything else to offer.

The reward levels are only suggestions - you can donate any amount you want! Please, please help us.


If you want, you can even donate through paypal! The address there is arcaneore@yahoo.com


If you truly can't help right now – please spread the word however you can – facebook, twitter, other websites, friends at work. Everything you do to help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

I don't really have anything to spare at the moment, but I'll do what I can to help, including spreading the news!

Late to the party, but I hope this helps. And if there is anything else I can do, help with the move, bring food, a smile, movies to watch, let me know.
