I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted. Chalk it up to not very much to talk about. That and after writing for days on Singapore and India, I might have been out of words. You wouldn’t know it from reading this blog, but usually I’m a woman of fewer words. I guess they flow more easily when I write. There’s less pressure to have coherent thought.

Back to this post. Remember when I posted a list of things that I’d like to do before I turn 25? Well I haven’t gotten very far on it. Meaning I’ve crossed a grand total of none of them off the list.

Well, here is the first step in my attempt to cross one of them off the list.

I opened an Etsy store! Eep!

What is Etsy, you may ask? Well it’s like an online mall of storefronts that sell handmade, vintage and supply items. (You can read all about it on their website-- this is a description in my own words) It is a global site, and you can post your own creations on the site and sell them.

What am I selling? Well, I would love for you to stop by and check it out for yourself. Basically I am going to sell stuff that I like to make. That’s pretty much it.

I’ve had great support from family and friends. Abraham is always brimming with ideas of what I can make and sell; he was the original reason I made my first bow tie, and my friend Grace from Quote Life Photography (check out her awesome work here) blew me away with the first round of photos that you’ll see on the Etsy site (seriously, some beautiful photos).

So, without further ado, here is my shop! Hybridized Bamboo on Etsy.
