I didn’t forget really… I just haven’t had the time to update! Between the multiple social media platforms, my 3 etsy shops, my poshmark sales, all of the creating, and running a household… I’m BUSY! 2016 has been a crazy year. It has been the first full year since quitting my job. If you want to see what I have been up to, head over to any one of my etsy shops and see all that I’ve created!

2017 will hopefully be even busier. I plan on taking my leather earring business to the next level. On top of that, I hope to get involved in quite a few more craft shows, AND #365daysofcreativity, which means I will not only be conducting business daily but also creating.

I would love for you to stick with me through all that! I will try and keep the blog updated more frequently 🙂

Wishing you a happy 2017!

I also decided not to bring any canvas paintings, as this is more of a craft fair. However, I did decided to mat some of my paintings on paper, and seal them in cellophane bags. They’re so much less bulky and won’t take away from all of the signs and jewelry I’m taking, but they will however show what I am capable of as an artist.

A Little Back Story

I’ve talked multiple times now about the fact that I quit my job to focus on my art full time. I suppose it’s time to dive a little deeper into that subject.

Up until November, I was working full time in Retail Management. For the most part, I liked what I did. I was the Merchandising Manager for a small Japanese company. My position consisted of getting new product to the floor, as well as resetting aisles of existing product. This is the part of the position that I really enjoyed. The other side of what I did was management. In retail, this not only entails managing lower level employees, but also dealing with customer issues. Which there were a lot of.
