A catch up!

Hello lovelies! I am so sorry that I have been really terrible at keeping up with this. The last entry that I had submitted was around the same time in which I was moving into my new apartment, then following that came the busy holiday season! Life has been so crazy as of late, but I don't think it ever stops at least for me haha. Alex finally left his old job and now works as self employed! He makes custom wood jewelry (plugs) with our friend Farrah! Which you should totally check them out, all of the woods that they use are safe/non-toxic and are Vegan friendly! Click here to visit my bf's store Vesica Piscis! They also make custom jewelry orders as well. A lot of their work is mostly centered around sacred geometry, which I find very beautiful. Here is a picture of a set of plugs that he actually made not that long ago, it has a symbol of the Japanese Rice Kamon. These are my favorite plugs that he has made so far!
And also, what kind of made me stop blogging (on this type of platform at least)was because I kind of hit another fork in the road. I was feeling really unmotivated and stuck. I got caught up in too much work and negativity, so I kind of crashed for a little while. I felt extremely down, stagnant, and hopeless. But, what got me to get back to writing and posting was this book called, "Show Your Work" by Austin Kleon. He is the same author for "Steal Like An Artist" (which is also another fabulous read). It really got me thinking about my approach to actually showing my work, so for the past week or so, I've been trying my best to show examples of things that I am making, etc. I am still finding it hard to actually list things, but I know I need to get over my fear of listing stuff. As weird as it sounds, I kind of get scared of listing things because I have the fear of not selling things. But then I realized that if I don't list them, I wont sell anything lol! So, expect to see more posts about my life and the things I make and/or buy! I would really like for this grow into something truly magical :) Thank you again for reading!
