Hi, friend! So... this is new, eh!? I know we chatted a little bit on IG about the direction I'd like to see B+L go this year and I got A LOT of really amazing feedback from you! I'm excited to share more behind the scenes, my life with small kids, maybe touch on what I've learned about running a business over the last 8 years, and whatever else you want to chat about! I've always been an open book, so drop a comment below and let me know what questions you have or topics you'd like to see!
Today I'd like to touch a bit on change as a maker... because this is a taking up a BIG part of my brain space right now. I can't tell you how nervous I am to switch gears with this space. All kinds of anxiety and fear have poured in over the last month or so and I've gone back and forth (and back again... and forth again) on whether or not to make this a separate blog or even a separate business, but honestly, sometimes I can barely keep up with the one I have!
Also - this is ME.
The business is an extension of me. The words are mine. The craftsmanship is mine. The emails, photos, posts, and pieces are all extensions of my work. The connection I have with you is valuable and precious to me and I want to keep it that way. So, here we stay.
Making changes at this point in the game is terrifying. I've built a pretty solid income and have made some pretty amazing friendships through this space and to rock the boat even just a little bit means that I'm putting all of that at risk, but I feel like I'm treading water here... rocking the boat may be just what this business needs, what I need and maybe, just maybe (hopefully!) what you need.
I can, with 100% honesty, say that I don't know what else is coming here. I have a very unclear vision that I'm working to pinpoint. It may mean a narrower but more intentional line of jewelry, completely new products (aside from jewelry), more blog posts (definitely more words!)... who knows! I'm standing here with my hands open, ready to dive deep, make more, and give more.
I hope you'll come along with me. I have a feeling it's going to be a great journey.
So, so much love.
