And I'm not complaining one bit. We finally got a break from a pretty nasty heat wave here in Portland with a couple days of moody, romantic rain (at least that's what I'm calling it now... get back to me on what I think of the rain come February).
Some figurative pouring has been happening, too. I've been a bit harried trying to get lots of sulu-design orders filled. As of this week, Thea's Interiors, a cute new vintage shop in the Pearl, is carrying sulu-design pieces. SITE in Astoria, Queens has been restocked with new sulu-design earrings and necklaces. And Liebling in Malmo, Sweden, should be receiving a huge shipment of sulu-earrings any day now. I've been working with a few new beads recently which will make their debut there:
So, in the span of five days, over one hundred sulu-design earrings and necklaces have made their way out my door. I've got blisters, folks. I've also been busily making more new pieces to keep my stock fresh since I'll be participating in a trunk show Olio United on Saturday, August 30, in celebration of their one year anniversary. I'd love it if you stopped by...
What it all comes down to is simply: I'm tired. I guess I could have spit that out a paragraph or so ago, but you know how I like to meander a bit before getting to the point. I'm really stinkin' tired. Good tired, but tired nonetheless. So I'm taking the next few days as computer-free rest time. Minimal e-mailing, no posting, no adding to the etsy shop. I'll check in with you all soon. Until them, get some good sleep. I know I will - I love to sleep while it rains.
