Hawthorne berries, with inadvertent psychedelic camera effect!
Well hello out there, friends- it's been a verrrrrry long time, and you must have thought that I dropped off the face of the earth. My only excuse is that when I throw myself into something, I do it 100%! First Ladyfest Nevada County, with an associated blog, and now my new project with my dear friend Amber from Nourished Mother-- we opened an online store selling vintage clothes! We're called Violet Folklore and we are on Etsy, a cool site for vintage and handmade goods. We might add herbal products this year, as was our original vision, but for now the clothes are demanding all of our time and attention! (Yes, in case you're wondering, it's going really well! It's my first ever successful effort at being an entrepreneur, and I am thrilled to bits!)
Snow bird, December
Naturally we have a blog with our new endeavor- and you can check it out here! We blog about our community, our lives, our fashion, and naturally we throw some herbs and natural health into the mix. We have just committed to doing a once a week post about "How I Took Care of Myself This Week". We also started a Flickr group called Making Herbal Medicine-- please join us and share your photos and your knowledge of the healing plants!
My herbal energies will be channeled in these new directions for now, so I hope that those of you who I have made a connection with can join me in my new cyberspace hangouts. Our blog is really more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.. and while we do promote the items in our shop, it is SO much more than your average "fashion blog"-- it's quite personal and (hopefully) inspiring. Though it might rekindle your love of dressing up, too...
Totally going to get you...
Thanks to all of my readers who made this year so wonderful for me-- your encouragement and support have given me the courage to launch my new business, and to feel that I can participate in this amazing online world with savvy and sass. I hope you all are having a cozy holiday season, and I hope to be in touch with you all in the New Year!
