Fall is almost here!

Hey hey!

Wow everyone, it has been entirely too long since I last posted!! I've been extremely busy because I just recently realized that I'm going back to school in less than a week... haha, the end of the summer kind of snuck up on me didn't it?

Alright.. so here go the updates:

In the past few weeks I've received my first sale on Etsy, which was quickly followed by quite a few more! I'm super excited about it... it means that making the move to Etsy was a good choice! I also received some sales on my 1000Markets account, which was unexpected but very exciting :) They weren't kidding when they said sales start to pick up in the fall and winter!

Also, I've been back and forth between my place here in GA to Athens, GA and I just have to say I love it SO MUCH. I've been thinking for a long time about taking a few art and jewelry classes over at UGA after I graduate this year from Sewanee. Sewanee is a great place, but it just doesn't have the art and jewelry classes that I feel I could really benefit from. And I LOVE the town of Athens. Most importantly though, a few of my best friends are there and I just feel so comfortable and welcomed every time I visit... something that Sewanee and my place here in Woodstock is beginning to lack.

This also sounds crazy, but I really want to bar tend for a few years as well. I think I'm going to get a bartending job somewhere and work during the night and do the jewelry thing during the day to see if I can't keep it going and really get it started. 

Gross... see what senior year has done to me? It's gotten me into "Future Career Mode." Haha, no wonder I want to stay in school a little bit longer!

Oh well, I've been crazy productive jewelry wise, so once we have a clear day here I'll get some pictures taken and show you what I've been up to! In the meantime, I've been featured on not one, but TWO fantastic blogs!! Be sure to take a look!!
  • You can find the first feature here. This blog is incredible.. You'll see some of the most amazing mosaics EVER! Go check it out!
  • The second feature is entirely my work! This blog is also pretty great! It's called LunaGirls and it features a new artist every week! You can check it out here.
So check these blogs out and give them a follow! I've enjoyed reading them both!

peace and love,

p.s. I'm going to try to hold a free contest giveaway here sometime this week! So keep an eye out for that :)

  1. We are in college, too (we're sophomores). Cool to see another Etsy jewelry seller in college! Good luck selling your jewelry on Etsy. Hopefully the Chistmas season will be helpful for us jewelry sellers...
