Questions

Yup. Not much going on in the Boozer-Komush abode tonight. I'm staying in, taking care of my sick honey, and relaxing. We lounged on the couch and watched An Officer and a Gentleman, and wowzers, romantic!

Seriously though, life keeps throwing me all of these curve balls. I feel like the universe is either 1. trying to tell me I need to be doing something else with my life (i.e. not the jewelry biz) or 2. is seriously testing just how committed I am to my work and thus making sure I'm doing the right thing with my life. I won't get into all of it right at this moment, but basically I've had to move my studio space, rather unexpectedly, this week. Right when I would be buckling down and preparing for the holiday craft fairs I'm slated for (hello, Baz Biz and Renegade!!!).

But the space is nearly all moved and should be completely moved by this time or earlier tomorrow. Yes, I am frustrated that I've basically lost a week's worth of jewelry production time. . . And, yes, I am trying not to focus on that. Because there are some silver linings to my new workspace. I have some wonderful friends that have pulled me through.

But still, many questions nag at me. Mainly, how much is too much to sacrifice to pursue my passion?

Snippets

Some snippets from the two fairs I did this past Friday and Saturday. 


I was ecstatic when I found this vintage typesetter's drawer at the antique shop in my neighborhood. I knew it would be perfect for my jewelry displays.


Open Studio! This photo was snapped Friday night as we worked on getting everything set up and ready to go for our EBAC craft fair

Both were lots of fun! Now it's time to get back to work on my Etsy shop. . .

Sustainable in Oakland

This Friday!


And every Friday, I set up booth and vend at the 25th Street Collective in Oakland. It's a fantastic place to come out and support local artists who are striving to create useful and beautiful pieces from recycled and sustainable materials. There's live music, wine from Oakland's own 2 miles Wines, food, and of course, arts and crafts. It's 5 to 10pm. Hope to see you there!
