{Mind} -Updates

Some of you might not know this, but my sister’s and I share a craft blog, Mind-Speaks, that we “try” to update monthly. We fell behind on updating towards the end of 2013 but hopefully we can start updating it again. Mija gave the site a facelift to make it look more professional this year. I absolutely adore it.

We hope to open our Etsy store as well, here’s a list of things we plan on selling.

The product list is still being decided but so far this is what we are thinking of making and selling for our store. I’m on a quest to find pleather so that I can make assorted clutches. I’ve never used pleather or any other imitation leather before so I’m hoping I can start that soon.  Also this Sunday my sisters and I plan on attending Mini Pop Shop that is hosted here in Houston. If you’re in the Houston area and love DIY/crafty things then this is the event for you. We plan to scope it out and then hopefully sell some of our own products at a future Pop event. :3 I love that things like this exist in my city, every time I tried to go to a previous one it was either cancelled due to weather or something else came up. So I’m hoping Sunday will be the day I can finally go to one. There’s also one on March 9th in case you can’t make it to this one. If you’re not from the area, then you should look up craft fairs in your own city, you could expose yourself to something new and different, maybe even meet new people and create new friendships.

I’ve been trying to take more pictures of myself lately, I’m tired of people viewing “selfies” in a negative manner. I usually post pictures of food or sometimes of things I’m knitting, I used to take daily outfit pictures, but I just suddenly stopped. Since I work three days out of the week, I’m usually in my work uniform. So I want to try to take pictures during the days I don’t work. Having my sister take this one made me feel really happy, especially after outfit2-5-14today’s test. Just because you post a picture of yourself does not make you or anyone who does, vain. I think people should post more pictures of themselves as a way to express self appreciation. You should love being who you are, not just physically but emotionally as well. I love wearing mint, and I haven’t posted a daily outfit in forever, so ta da! I’m so looking forward to this weekend, but I still have Thursday and Friday to get through and another test just happens to be standing in my way. So I should be using this time to study before then. Here goes nothing.

I’m currently in a bright mood and I wanted to share that with others. I hope all is well with you and your loved ones and until next time,  thanks for reading and commenting. :3

    Way to go! I’m excited for all of you and your soon-to-be Etsy shop! I can’t wait to check that out!

    I agree with you on selfies! I think that posting pictures of yourself on your blog makes it more personal, and helps to infuse your character and personality into it! BUT, there is a point where it starts to look self-obsessed. I was reading this one blog for a while, it was a lifestyle blog by this girl who is really cute and stylish. She was always posting pictures of herself in really cool outfits and of recipes and home DIY projects. But then she started going overboard, and included 7 or more HUGE pics of herself in each post. I’m not kidding. I got tired of seeing her striking the same 3 poses over and over again, and I stopped following her.

    If only she had limited herself to one or two photos of herself on posts that were RELEVANT, I would have stuck around!

    href=”#comment-10523″>@Kristen, Wow, I guess there might be a limit. But that could have been a really good hair day for her. XD You know those days you feel unbelievably cute and you just want to dance and have a Photoshoot?
    I don’t like having my picture taken too often because I’m not very photogenic. But there are rare occasions that I feel cute and picture worthy. Of course, I’m lucky if I find 2 pictures I like out of the many I take.

    I’m glad you girls are back at it! I really like the design! She did an awesome job. I look forward to see what you put on your shop! I added things to my shop. I finally took that leap of faith.
