It's another snow day here in Portland. We're suppose to get up to five inches. It's the third time this year, which is unheard of. As fun and beautiful as it is, it sure is an inconvenience for small businesses and the ability to run errands. It's not that Portlanders don't know how to drive in snow or are not willing, we simply don't have the services to prepare us for snow, so roads are iced over and it's impossible to drive up and down hills. I had to try three different hills to get home, the trick is sticking to the main streets. So, since I'm stuck at home, I figure I'll take the time to do a little update of the things going on for R/A at the moment!
First, I started a newsletter. I haven't sent any out yet, mostly because no one has signed up, but it exists, and I'm putting that out into the world. If you do want to sign up, there is a way to in my footer. I'll send stuff on blog posts, shop updates, and promo codes, things happening, and so on and so forth. I'll at least try my best to!
For those of you in Salt Lake City, Utah, my friends Desert Rose Jewelry and Innerspacism who are Salt Lake based will be having a couple pop-ups. They'll be selling their beautiful things along with some Everlasting Bouquets of mine. So, if you're in Utah, be sure to check those out. One is an open house this Friday, December 16th from 6-9pm (if you'd like the address message one of us), and the other is at the Downtown Artist Collective from 11-7pm (258 E 100 S). Lots of people are confused as to why I have things in Salt Lake; it's because I grew up there, so I have some dear friends that still live there. And, they're nice enough to carry some of my things! So, that's happening, which I'm very excited about.
I'm still taking online orders for Everlasting Bouquets. The deadline to get it before Christmas is December 19th. They're the perfect thing to top off gifts, I'll be adding them to my gifts this year. If you order a bouquet from me, I'm putting in little chocolates! Just for as long as supplies last.
Also, starting tomorrow December 15th, my sister shop Esther Jean and I are doing a 10 days until Christmas special. Within the next ten days, if you order anything from me take 10% off by using the code "treatyourself". If you purchase something, you will receive a 10% off code to her shop, which I'll message to you after you've made a purchase! So between our two shops, you'll receive 20% off. The perfect way to start a new year, in my opinion, showered in flowers and adornments.
2017 is coming up quick. I'm starting it off by moving into a new work studio. Today I added it into Google Maps! Baby steps. It's in the old Luluville Dollhouse Workshop on the corner of SE 14th and Morrison. It's not going to be open to the public, but if you walk by and see me in there, say hi! There's big windows, so most likely you will see me if you walk by. I'll be sharing the space with Esther Jean and The Nature of Isa, so we'll have this little bridal collective, which we're excited about.
All these things are things I would put in a newsletter, so again, if you're interested, just sign up below!
Okay, ciao for now!
