Me and my new Nia White Belt!
Me and my new Nia White Belt!

I’m slowly easing into the rhythm of daily life after a weeklong Nia intensive training in Santa Fe.  Nia, a form of dance fitness, is one of my other passions and expressive outlets.  I am now a Nia White Belt, which is the first level of certification for anyone who wants to teach or wants a greater depth of understanding of the principles and practice.  I am so grateful for my experience there – it was both healing and enriching.  I’m also feeling really inspired, and I already see that leaking into my creative life.

I brought a few of my jewelry pieces with me to the training and ended up selling three things.  I now have learned to bring more items at similar events in the future, and also to have a good stock of business cards with me at all times. One of my classmates is a successful jewelry designer and I hope to connect with her more soon.

I sold this Red Jasper heart last week.

I’ve been working on updating my website!  If you have a chance, please look at it and tell me what you think.  I’ve been working with a friend on online marketing and she suggested that I work on making the home page more visual.  In any case, I had fun playing with the images.

I signed up for a craft fair in September, and I’ve been looking at the possibility of selling some of my pieces on consignment at local shops.

I also submitted both poetry and art for consideration for the 2017 We’Moon calendar and datebook. I’m excited for more opportunities like this – no matter what the outcome, it’s good practice and exposure.

Also, I got proofs of my oracle cards!  I made the originals with pencil, pen, and watercolor two years ago as part of a project.  Since then, I have digitized them in Photoshop.  I’m still working on editing and rewriting the card descriptions, but hope to have them ready and available to sell at some point soon!
