cardigan: f21 / tee: urban outfitters / shorts: hm / wedges: new direction, belk / watch: fossil
headband: muchloveilly / nailpolish: sally hansen wet cement and sonic boom
okay, so i'm not a shy person, but i can be shy about wearing my own products 'cause i feel funny when people ask oooooh, where did you get that awesome headband? then i tell them, um, i made it like a little kid excited about her artwork. i don't know what it is but the words feel funny when they roll off my tongue. i don't like people thinking i wear my stuff just to promote it. i mean it doesn't hurt to do that, but i really truly wear my stuff 'cause i love what i create and it makes me happy.
i think it also has something to do with getting used to answering people's questions about what i currently do for a living. i get the oddest, most confused looks in return when i tell them that i run a handmade business and write a blog full-time. i don't suppose i'm the only handmade business owner that has gone through the awkward explanation of this when people don't "get it."
in other news...
i don't think i've even gotten the chance to do the happy dance here (totally did the dance on twitter!!)

encouraging me with your comments, and sticking with me this whole time!
