Shop Update and some other ramblings

A couple of notes for you all.
I put the etsy shop into vacation mode. This is to help facilitate the rebirth of the shop. I have been wanting to do a revamp for quite a while and with all of the other new things coming into my world I thought that now was as good a time as any. The time line is set to be back live the first of September.
I was gifted last week with a reading from a dear friend. This reading helped put things into a different perspective and enabled (how I hate that word) me to see some things freshly. I have been able to redefine what I do, and through that who I am, or who I wish to become. I will be using the time that the shop is offline to bring it into alignment with that new focus.
I was reminded of my long term goals and dreams. I was reminded of who I am at the core. Naturally, the new perspective has brought up old issues. Change can be a challenge, doing the right thing is never easy. I will be challenged further, I know. The path I have chosen is not one that many people understand. It will leave me open to criticism and probably anger. It will be hard, but I will stay my course.
To this end, I have started working on small steps to reach the redefined goal. Writing more, doing readings, and embracing. A very key thing for me is DOING. Throwing myself into the actions that will take me to my goal.
So, come September, look for a slightly new etsy shop, and some really interesting new pieces in the shop.

The new house!

Just going to post the pictures I think.
Now I am off to work on an order of cards for a Christmas bazaar.

Gone too long

This last month has been one ridiculous set of drama after the other. The most frustrating was the moving. That's right. We moved. We were forced out of our home because the landlords wanted the home for in-laws.
But now we are mostly settled and while there is plenty of other drama (still working on moving that along) I got back to doing what I love. Creating.
I will post photos from the new home tomorrow, but for now, please enjoy this photo of an Orange Pudding Cupcake from the book "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World". They certainly take over my house.
