Interests
 I don't write journals on here often, but I figured it was time once again to catch up those who don't read the blog at lilyashesemporium.blogspot.com…

So first off I just bought a new house and am going through the process of moving and selling my old house.  Because of this the shop will be closed for the rest of June, all of July, and maybe some of August.  It depends on how fast things go.  

In the mean time I have been doing some Japanese Silk Embroidery after receiving my first lesson a few weeks ago.  I don't get to work on it often, but it has been coming along little by little.  I will be raising money to buy my first membership to the JEC (Japanese Embroidery Center in Atlanta, Georgia), and one other venture I am looking into.  

I have been invited to be a vendor for a professional organization that represents local artists.  You have to sell tickets to cover your costs to the shows, and its $440 in tickets.  Which means its $440 a table for a business of my size.  That's a lot of money.  I am considering my options and who in my area would buy tickets.  I don't really know that many people into the art scene.  Especially not who live in my area.  I have a friend or two who might be able to help. I haven't asked yet.  
They did give me tickets to the next event, so that might be enlightening. If i can find someone to go with me that is.  

My friend Shanna is still in need of donations for her son, Dimitri.  If you feel generous, please visit www.gofundme.com/dconde and show some love.   I was able to raise her over $250 with the clearance sale and some other sales combined, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the expenses of having a child with Leukemia ALL.  

Family is good.  I am hoping to schedule a photo shoot soon for my furisode kimono.  I still never finished that pine needle kanzashi, which is boxed up with the rest of my kanzashi and supplies and tools and everything.  I will try to finish it but I am not certain how excited I am to do that.  It was a total pain in the butt the first go round, and I think I have to start over as it is.  It might get scrapped for another project.  

Future projects may include :

Working with more silk kanzashi.  I have a lot of already dyed pieces of silk in various colors with thanks to EruwaedhielElleth, my fellow artisan and bestie.  I even have the nori paste.  I just need to starch my silk and get to work.

More silk embroidery.  Still working on my first piece, but I am really liking the outcome.  However if this vending thing takes over, Embroidery will continue to be a happy hobby, not my profession.

Jewelry should finally make an appearance, since I have a ton of stuff to make it with and never touched it before the move.  I have chiyrogami paper for pendants and such, and kumihimo braids for other kinds of jewlery, but I just haven't had time to finish those projects yet.  

I did have a major goal of having a table sale this year.  Maybe that is still going to happen.

No thanks needed :) I like your designs! They are experimental and creative. They push the traditional idea I have always had of kanzashi, and inspires me to rethink my own work! :D
