Sorry for the blog silence! Working on lots of secret project stuff, that I can't talk about quite yet, and just been busy in general. Not complaining! It's definitely good to be busy with lots of work projects and I'm feeling rather grateful lately. It's been almost two years since I quit my day job to freelance full-time, and I finally feel like I have hit my stride and know what the heck I'm doing and feel good about things business-wise (not that I'm not still learning!) So, there's that, yay!
+ I've been enjoying the mild weather here in NYC. 50 degrees F and sunny in February? Thank you!
+ I've been cooking lots of yummy things out of Vegan Diner (which I received for Christmas). The homemade tomato soup, the hamburger buns, Brown Rice Hazelnut burgers and Mushroom Burgers have all been hits! The chili pictured above was my own concoction in the crockpot, but it contains TVP, Chili beans, corn, diced tomatoes, a dash of cinnamon, and a bunch of Sriracha. Daiya Cheddar on top.
+ I'm finally getting treatment on my jaw/teeth for TMJ. I'm being fitted for a mouthpiece-thingy to wear to start moving my jaw slowly, so hopefully I can have some relief on my ears and jaw soon (um, my ear has been "plugged-feeling" for two months from my jaw pushing on my eardrum!)
+ I'm going to be having a sale on Fab.com starting on February 29th, that I'm SUPER excited about (and slightly terrified since I know a few people that have done it and they were completely over-whelmed with orders...) I'll have more info closer to the date, but if you aren't a member (it's a members-only site that is similar to a Living Social or Groupon kind of thing, but with artists and designer goods), the link provided should be an invite link if you were interested.
+ I broke 1,000 sales in my Etsy shop last week! So exciting! I'm shooting for 2,000 by next year...
