My apologies for not being around, I was just taking some time to regroup and get back to the whole reason why I started this little shop of mine in the first place :)
This post by the super fab Jen Gray has been on my mind lately...
"get back to the place of when you created something just because it just made you feel better.
when the scent of crayolas or the feel of clay in your little hands was enough ~ " Jen Gray

I've really made the effort to create when the mood strikes this month, and not put so many unrealistic (not to mention self-imposed) time constraints or schedules upon myself. There have been some copyright issues that I've been trying to deal with and process, and its really gotten me down.
I'm still uncertain as to my next course of action, I need to find the balance of being true to myself and my work, but also not bringing on extra drama in my life. (as you can probably tell, this has been weighing on me)
I think the first step is to publish this blog posting that has been in draft format for over a week, with the ask of this:
Please be original. Please do not copy my Whimsy designs with the intention of selling them. I work very hard on my designs and to see them copied and then in other shops just breaks my heart and takes the fun out of it for me.
