Shop Updates: Tree Slices + New Annapolis Shop!
Friday, May 13, 2016
FRIDAY, PRAISE YOU, YOU BEAUTIFUL BABE.
Honestly, things have been a little rough this month.
I knew it was going to be a hectic time with work deadlines, preparing for Hadley's birthday and Josh's family visiting (yay!!!), getting new carpet in our house and planning a little Memorial Day beach trip BUT add no GD sunshine and things just feel harder. As peeps who are happiest outside taking wagon rides and tormenting caterpillars, this rain is making us a little miserable.
But you know me, I'm always tryna' keep it positive over here so let's talk about some exciting stuff!
For one, the tree slices I promised you guys months ago (typical) are FINALLY in the shop!
I'm so happy about these new babies.
As I've been working to grow my little bidnass, there are certain things that just naturally start to takeover. Things like invoices and paperwork and expenses and shipping and labeling and inventory and I've found myself really missing the part where I'm actually creating something new.
So when I sit down to paint these little slices of trees, which happen to now surround me on the daily (how ironic is that?), it makes me so happy. Painting days have started to become my favorite days so I'm excited to create even more in the future.
My second piece of big news is that my Forever Fireflying goodies will now be available in the brand new shop opening in downtown Annapolis NEXT WEEK called
It really is crazy to think about. I've been visiting Annapolis since I was a kid and have walked up and down Main Street many times.. sometimes a little tipsy and other times pushing a ginormous stroller with my kiddos.
So now, to be able to walk down there and stop in the shop to see my artwork & designs among all these other talented, local artisans is just.. surreal!
Local By Design will be opening at 109 Main Street on Wednesday, May 18th.
I think it's about damn time.... to celebrate!
