What I wear ~ SPC
This picture is of me last year, while having a garage sale in October. I am using this pic because it captures a lot of what I wear on most days.
~The slightly pursed mouth, tense slightly raised upper lip I get when annoyed, stressed or concentrating. All my near and dear know this look and often laugh when it is caught on video or in a pic.
~Thi red vest. It was my mothers. I wear this vest a lot, and often with things it doesn't match, but I don't care. My mom had this vest when I was a small child and wore it alot around the house. We used to heat with woodstove and often in the morning it was chilly in the ouse. She would wear it over her long cotton white nightgowns. This was a big staple for her for at least 20 years. It is a sierra vest and has stood up to the tests of time.
~The pearls-have to admit am not wearing them as much lately, but they were my moms favorite earrings. She wore them almost every day the few months before her death. My mother would always wear jewelry before giving it as a gift - to put her energy and love into it before giving it to a loved one. She has passed this belief that objects hold energy to me. This is something I would hope all of my customers knew when they buy one of my pieces. I almost always wear a peice once before cleaning and wrapping it up. Just to send some energy with it.
~Hat- the past year or so I started wearing hats. I seem to wear hats when I feel spunky, fun and good about myself. This hat is from Target and I think it is oh so cute.
Side note-I really have no business blogging since I have my jewelry partythe day after tomorrow and I am no where near ready. I love leaving things to the last minute often because I function much better in crunch time.
Oh and to be brave today I reapplied to trunkt. That is a third time folks:)
Yesterday I did two brave things with wonderful results.
1. I emailed Jena after she rejected my work for modish shoppe, asking for some detailed feedback. I was super happy and relieved by her generous and long response.
2. I asked a blogger I had sent a gift to if she would mind mentioning my jewelry on her blog. She said yes!
BE BRAVE- you may be pleasantly surprised by the results.
