Lately all I seem to be spending my hard earned cash on is evil bills, rent, food and supplies for the business. I never buy anything anymore just for me, so in a moment of feeling hard done by and sorry for myself I decided Ruth needed a little treat for herself. I've been drooling over the work of ShinyJane since she joined the Etsy Ireland Team, telling myself one day I would buy something from her. I stumbled across her shop the other day again and it reminded me of my ongoing fixation with her work and I thought to myself that this was the prime moment for self indulgent spending.
I hummed and hawed between a few of her pieces, and in the end I was only able to decide when I told myself I would come back for more later down the line. I chose this beautiful poetic cloud piece because it reminds me of my logo and I couldn't help but smile every time I looked at it.
I was delighted when the parcel arrived this morning in the beautiful little box, with the most darling drawing on it (I will have to find something suitably cute to store in this in my studio). This is what I love about etsy, when you order things they always arrive with amazing packaging and lovely notes of thanks, so that you know your items was made with love ( a huge contrast with the cattle herding behaviour of the high street). I can't wait to to wear my brooch, and tell everyone where I got it!
