Here are a few things I’ve put up lately!

Bling!

The weather’s supposed to improve this next week (it has been AWFUL here) and I want to take a morning and photograph my bracelets on the back porch. I have about twice as many as I had when I listed the ones on the Etsy site, and half of them have never been photographed. I want all the pics to match, so I’m going back over the first half too.

Welcome to the latest and hopefully permanent incarnation of this site.

I have been going through some stuff since the Great Plague of 2020 which intensified in 2021 and veered straight into Whiskey Tango Foxtrot territory from there. I am not out of the woods yet. I can’t even say whether I’m close. But I feel that part of the process of getting out of this mess will involve getting myself around to doing what I want to do with my life rather than picking some other option out of desperation. That’d be nice. I’d like that.

So, unless I go chasing a shiny again (I hope not), expect a lot more development here in the near future.

Ironically, because I am artistically inclined, I get mental blocks about logos and icons. I’d like both for this site. We’ll see. Having just the title in sans-serif font is boring. Whatever I come up with, it’ll need to be usable both here and at my online shops. I’m just not there yet. You’ll know when I am.

I have a bunch of bracelets at the Etsy shop (see sidebar… if you’re on your phone you’ll likely need to scroll down) and a couple pieces of mini art. I INTEND to add more bracelets to stock soon. I’ve been putting it off because lighting hasn’t been good for product photography. My resources for that are very limited at the moment. But tomorrow should be okay, I think, if the weather doesn’t change radically from what it was today.

I’ve been a bit too addicted to the stretch bracelets though. I have findings for other sorts of pieces. Hopefully soon.

The other thing I’d like to dig into is bumper stickers and maybe the odd tshirt. I have zero facilities for making my own, but Cafe Press is still in business and doesn’t seem to be too insane with the weirdo politics. Plus their mugs are dishwasher-safe now. They weren’t originally. Hopefully the tshirt offerings have improved as well. But that’s getting ahead of myself. I have some bumper sticker ideas. They’ll go up soon.
