i know, i'm a terrible, terrible blogger... i haven't blogged since last year (!). it's been a very strange and stressful 2011 so far (with the worst behind me, thankfully), so i think you will understand when i explain myself a bit. just a warning: this post will be quite long and detailed.
as soon as i was cleared for work by my doctor (6 weeks post-op), i began making up for lost time. i participated in 2 art fairs recently and also offered a deal on heartsy (like groupon for etsy sellers, if you're not familiar), which kept me plenty busy for a while ;).
i also created new chiyogami bangles, released some sets of stud earrings and wine glass charms, started selling to a few new brick-and-mortar shops, and began an email newsletter (you can sign up in the box in the top right corner of this page ^).
it feels great to be productive again :).
here are some photos from the art fairs, starting with 'japan-aid' which took place on april 29th:
