this set of photos are from opening my very own brick and mortar shop summer 2011.  it was so much work and so rewarding!  i spent my childhood scheming about my “eventual shop,” and there i was making it happen.  dream come true.  it may be in me to have another shop someday, way off far in the future.  but for now I am happy to hunt and gather for others and use my skills to style, set design and provide props for shoots when I am not Making.    for the almost 2 years I had my shop, most of my blog post were all about it, so if you are curious and interested, go back to the archives starting in june 2011 and go from there.  also, more info here.
