i have been celebrating joyously, as i have a full-time job! starting next week, i will be interior designing full time. these past few weeks have really been spent in contemplation, as i've been seriously thinking about my 'business'. as much as i would love to make and sell things full-time, it just doesn't seem possible at the moment. but i am trying to be patient with myself, and in the meantime, i can still make things and be inspired and have lots of ideas.
i tromped around Manhattan today, in the freezing cold wind chill, to follow in the footsteps of my great grandmother, Olive Bennett, to go supply shopping.
i found the most amazing jewelry supply store, Metalliferous. i went a little crazy. i definitely could have gone a bit crazier. self-control. i found some great little bracelet cuffs to paint on.
i painted this graffiti blossom with pink nail polish. for sale at my Etsy shoppe! crossing my fingers.
EDIT: this cute little bracelet was my first sale on Etsy! not even two hours after i listed it. joy!
