If you have time (and have Facebook), I’d love for you to take my poll on what kinds of items you’d like to see in my shop. It’s been a while since I last did a full-fledged update, and I have some new inventory. So please, follow this link and vote!
Commenting on this post is also welcome.
What would you like to see? More necklaces or pendants? Ornaments and suncatchers? Earrings? Cards and prints? Bracelets? Something else?

As for myself, I’m excited to see my love over this coming Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve managed to do a majority of my holiday shopping already, so I’m looking forward to cozying in…and hopefully selling a few things online!
I had the realization that business social media account-wise, I tend to post a lot on Instagram, occasionally on Facebook, sometimes on Pinterest, and rarely here. My intention is to start blogging more.
I’ve been working hard – prolifically making jewelry, figuring out prices, planning for my next craft show (on September 13!), editing my digitized oracle cards on Photoshop, putting up a few new items on Etsy, and getting ready to go away for Labor Day weekend to visit my love.
So, here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to recently:
On Saturday, I spent the day mostly offline. In the morning, I went down to the Rio Grande and took a walk. I also spent some time just sitting by the river. Then, I came home and created up a storm: I made prints, jewelry, and a watercolor painting. I was really grateful for this time: after all the busyness of the past few weeks, it felt wonderful to call a time out of sorts. I need to take intentional time offline more often – it allows me more space to dream and to refill my energy reserves.
I also took some time this weekend to write out a few new listings on Etsy, and posted them this morning. You can find them here.
I have a weeklong Nia (dance fitness) intensive training starting on July 25. I’m nervous and excited. Dance is another one of my creative outlets, and it also is great exercise. In the meantime, from today through July 23, I’m having a sale on Etsy – 15% off with the coupon code NEWFOLLOW. I just added a few new items to my shop, too. www.etsy.com/shop/seekingspiritdesigns.
Also, I’m looking into printing some of my drawings and two-dimensional art pieces to make them into cards and larger prints. I just ordered one set (for proof purposes) of my oracle cards and should get them next week. Exciting times!
