I just spent almost a week in Kansas with my family – it was a lot of fun, except for the tornado warning and the constant reminders of the recently-passed Concealed Carry law. I picked up some neat vintage treasures, including the pleasingly-distressed metal filing draw that I used for the background in this photo of my new Moo cards.

This week marks my first week as an almost fully self-employed jewelry designer! I officially ended my full-time position at the non-profit in Princeton that I have been working at for almost a year and a half last week. I’m still working there part-time, but going forward, the majority of my waking hours will now be devoted to making jewelry, developing new designs and learning new techniques.
I’m really excited about this new direction that I’m going in, so to mark this occassion, I’m having a weekend sale! From 12:00am Saturday, Sept. 6th, to midnight Sunday, Sept. 7th, some of my best-sellers will be marked down 20% in my Etsy shop. The sale will be limited to items that are in stock and ready to ship, so I’ll be able to get them out the door ahead of my trip to Kansas on the 11th. So stop by this weekend, and tell all your friends!
Speaking of going places, my trip to Kansas is from the 11th to the 17th. I’ll be hanging out with my family, going to a Laurie Anderson performance and checking out my mom’s artwork at the Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, KS.
