Here is the new logo for my handmade "things" enterprise (haha). Since I am having trouble settling on what exactly I will be selling...wreaths, decor, prints, crafty projects, art...I thought "things" covered it all. I decided against "goods" because it sounded too official and reminds me of bags of barley and bolts of fabric (which I will not be selling). And "do-dads" was too much of a mouthful. Can I boast that I hand drew the border and tweaked it in Photoshop all by myself?! Silly but a big deal to me. My husband was laughing that I have my logo and tags ready before I have the work finished. He just doesn't get it. Sometimes getting your packaging together helps push you forward. Right? Or am I just working backwards?

I think you're BRILLIANT and, even though I only discovered you and your blog and your flowers and your GENIUS about 5 hours ago, I already want to be you. I wish I had your courage! I've dreamed of doing what you're doing and I'm still not doing it. Perhaps you will inspire me, but until that day comes I'll just have to keep admiring your flowers (and your adorable logo).

I'm doing all the flowers and decor for my own wedding this fall and I'm getting so many ideas from your gorgeous work! Thank you a million times for sharing your talents with a girl in Seattle.
