up our sleeves.

A lot of my attention lately has been focused on getting our new jewelry line up and running. It is something that has been in the works for what feels like forever. I made the first earring sketch last spring, and it has taken almost a full year to pick the designs apart, and rebuild, and re-think them to where I feel really good about them. Things are a lot simpler now that we have a printer that can print out gorgeous, fade-proof miniature prints too.

I have chosen a name and logo different from sweet mess (someday when I am not trying to write a blog post in the space of a nap I will share my thoughts on this division). I am so excited to share it with you.
Here it is:


The name and logo are based on the maple seed, which was the image on Alex and my wedding invitations. It seemed appropriate to me because it is a business adventure that we are creating together. We are crossing our fingers (all twenty of them) that Seed & Sky will flourish, and Alex can cut back drastically on being a carpenter starting in August.

whew. I said it out loud...
We are taking another step into the unknown, and it feels exciting.
really exciting.  
and scary too. 
We have 14 designs created so far. These will be made into long earrings, short earrings, and necklaces on sterling silver chains. Hopefully in the coming month I will have more to share. Well, Eliseo is up from his nap and is babbling away up there, so I will tell you more some other day.

Fantastic! I remembered the significance of this the moment it popped up on my screen. Very cool. I'd like to place an order please. I will wear them with pride and tell everyone all over the country where I got them. Free advertising in the school districts;)
Love you all lots. Couldn't be happier for you, xoxoxoxo NeNe
