Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend! First I want to say thank you for all the positive feedback on my new endeavor! My cup runneth over with feelings of love and gratitude for you all. I am still a little nervous but that feeling has almost completely given way to feeling excited. I am sure the moments will surely come when anxiety gets the better of me, so, yes, I should just be super excited now while I have that option. So thank you for being excited for me, it was contagious :)
My weekend was packed, with packing. And rearranging. And organizing. And de-cluttering. And laundry. And loading my car with tons of stuff I don't want or need anymore. I finally did it. I finally did all the organizing I have been talking about for the last few months (I work way better under pressure). Funny, it was all so much worse in my mind, but it usually is, eh? I definitely superseded my 40 bags in 40 days goal. I got rid of at least that in under 40 hours. Is it weird that it was one of the best weekends of my life? I tell you one thing about having kids, they come with stuff and they grow out of stuff and they become disinterested in stuff and no matter how much stuff they have you want to buy them more stuff and everyone you know wants to buy them stuff. So when I added my little M+L almost 5 years ago (!) I had also been adding 5 years worth of "stuff" on top of my 30 years worth of stuff and Fisher's 10 years of stuff. It wasn't pretty friends. But now the whole world feels prettier with a packed mini-van and a half of stuff out of my house.
This weekend I also thought a lot about fonts. Durning my breaks over the weekend I spent time trying to redesign my Plumed logo. I don't hate what I have but I don't love it either and I think a logo is something you should love. I have also tweaked my current logo so many times I have a-little-bit different logo on everything: my business cards, my etsy shop page, facebook, labels. It's not good. I haven't finalized anything yet but I find I do gravitate towards handwritten fonts and I have pulled together a few of my favorites. Right now I am leaning towards monoment. I am so indecisive! I wish I could throw thousands of dollars at someone to do it for me but if I had thousands of dollars laying around I think I'd rather throw it around Europe for awhile and still do my own logo. Maybe if I come down to a few finished logos that I can't decide between I will put it up here for a vote . . .
