FREE SHIPPING on orders over $100

could it be that less is more?




This is me, buried in supplies.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I had quite the revelation sixish months ago when my friend came over and I pulled out all my supplies. What was normally tucked away in their little drawers and sweet dishes, closets and cupboards all came out at once.

And there was no denying it. The over abundance.

I’ve slowly been working through them these last six months. And thanks to your holiday + recent sale orders, we’ve put quite a dent in what once was. Thank you for that!

And while I’ve curbed my supply purchasing quite a bit, at the beginning of the year, I made a firm commitment to myself.

No new supplies.

Of course, there are some exceptions. Chains, cord, shipping supplies. Just the basics.

I was supposed to go to the Tucson gem show for the first time this year. I cancelled that trip. And as I saw all my jewelry friends posting their gorgeous finds this past week or so, I thought I’d feel some FOMO, but all I felt was sweet relief.

Stoked for them and their beautiful things. Stoked for me, contentedly working through what I already have.

And honestly, I’m pretty excited to see what beauty wants to be made with these things. I look forward to the creative challenge of finding use for things that I don’t automatically reach for, but are so lovely nonetheless.

And already I feel my anxiety easing. Too many options, too much inspiration, decision fatigue, the feeling of not enough time to manifest all the visions. These are very real things for me.

And I know, and have known for quite some time, that there are also too many options in my online shop, especially in some categories. I’m looking forward to running out of supplies for some of those and paring down my offerings. I simply cannot bring myself to remove them just to remove them. I’ve tried. I just love them all too much. 🙈

I am craving that empty room, blank slate, start fresh feeling. And this commitment to no new supplies feels like an exciting step in that direction.
