Ever since I moved into my apartment, my creative workflow has been off. I’ve fiddled with it here and there, and small changes have made small improvements, but it hasn’t felt really good to me in over a year. I’ve been missing the juice, the joy of it – the thing that used to make me come home from work full of colorful thoughts and get right to making things. I still have plenty of ideas, but they don’t seem to gel right. It often takes me three or four times longer to get a design right than it once did.
It’s sale time! urban legend is participating in Etsy’s community-run annual sales event, Christmas in July. Most items in the shop are discounted 25% for the duration of the sale, from July 11-21.* Sale prices are listed, so there’s no need to use a coupon code. Happy shopping, and please don’t eat the jewelry!
*new designs and necklace of the month club are not discounted.
Things are getting more than usually busy for me now that the end of the school year is approaching, so I’ll be closing custom orders again for a while. I’ll continue to accept custom work through April 30; please contact me if you have something you’d like to request. After April 30, I won’t be able to take new custom requests for several months (for either Leaves of Glass or urban legend). Thank you for your patience, and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
My urbanlegend shop is turning 2 years old this month. That’s 2 years of making big, fun, candy-looking, please-don’t-eat-the jewelry, and I’ve enjoyed every minute so far. I’ve also placed no less than 10 orders for beads in the last two weeks, so you can look forward to yet more fun new stuff – and I can look forward to trying to figure out where I’m going to put everything.
To celebrate this sugary bounty, I’ll be having a sale from Friday, March 11 (that’s tomorrow!) through Wednesday, March 16. Use the code IWANTCANDY in the coupon box of the Etsy checkout to take 20% off your order. Thanks for being a friend to urbanlegend, and I hope to see you in the candy store.
