It's probably not a real thing, but it seems that I got jet lag from being in the land of the midnight sun for a few weeks. I haven't been able to sleep until almost 3 in the morning for the past few nights, so my days have been fueled with pots and pots of tea. Spidey is a pretty good bearer of caffeinated goodness.
A lot of you have asked for posts about how I run my store and about working from home. I have zero training in business or anything that involves running a business, so I'm learning right as I go along. One thing I've started to do is plan 2-week projects.My first project is a collection of vintage inspired print bows set for April. Here's a preview of some of the beautiful fabric I was super lucky to acquire. Some of them are repurposed vintage pieces!
Resin fingers. I'm a pretty lucky gal to be married to such a creative guy. My husband made casts of his finger so he can make them into candle molds! Future Finger candles! Isn't that the cleverest idea ever?
I found the cutest containers ever at my local dollar store. Emily suggested I make mini terrariums, and Marie thinks I should store candies in them, but I think I'm gonna use them to store some loose leaf tea. I'm planning on buying more soon...
Mail! I love getting surprises from my postlady. If you wanna be penpals, email me!
In my effort to be more organized, I bought some corkboard squares, mounted them on my wall and made little hand drawn ribbon banners. See the whole project on Instagram :)
I found this book while rifling through my old things back in the AK. At that point I had run out of stuff to read and was unfit to venture out, so I snagged it. I've been reading it since then. Have you read it? I stopped at chapter 7 because I couldn't handle the pretension. I just picked it up again last night, and it's kinda awfully addictive.
Gandalf! I don't think I've told you about the newest member of our wee family yet. Well, here he is! Meet Gandalf the Grey! Isn't he darling? I missed him so much, so I've been spending a lot of time with him lately. Most of the time, he just naps away until I offer him a hammie croissant or sliver of fruit. Then the heavy petting begins.
Hey, Spring. Are you there yet? I've taken to yarn crafts again, and as a result: tons of crocheted roses. I was planning on making just a few for my hair, but now I have a TON. So they're up in the shop! And, if you're still looking for a cute Easter present, I'm having a sale until tomorrow where everything is 20% off with the code HELLOSPRING .
