this week has made me feel almost like a new person.

my old stressful, downward-spiraling, hands-tied, under-appreciated job/position was done as of last friday.

this week a new, bustling, enjoyable, product-filled, slower-paced job/position began.

i find myself walking around with a bit of a smile on my face. i feel like seeing people, going out, being active more. i want to actually converse with people. this is a complete 180 from where i was just one measly week ago.

i've got goals, & i'm figuring out how to reach them. and i think this change of job was just the first step.

good things are happening, things are changing. awesome.

tomorrow is the crafty supermarket! road trip to cincinnati! (& to ikea for new blinds)

take your business cards EVERYWHERE.

i don't know how many times i've been asked about this or that whenever i accessorize (if you will) with a handmade item. i've been referring the hell out of the bloomington handmade market, the indieana handicraft exchange, busty's fun bags, and mamus!

while my card doesn't refer people directly to them, it does refer them to my blog, and - voila! there are all the links!

aside from that, the handmade market was a great time! we failed to get any really good pictures due to some terrible lighting, but it was still fun. i've even ran into a few of my customers out in the real world this week...strange.

that's me & my craft fair buddy, kate. we obviously had a good time!
