Back At It

Published August 9, 2016 by sarcasmica

Last year I had a grand plan to make and sell wreaths using feathers from the sanctuary I volunteer at twice a week. In my head I turned myself into a lone sweat shop slaving away at wrapping wreaths. I was arthritic from all the yarn and felt and blistered from the crappy glue gun I insist on continuing to use.

It couldn’t have worked out further from that expectation. I can barely give these things away. You know that family member that fancies themselves a Rembrandt but when you see the abomination they actually spent money and time to create it just inspires nausea on your part? I’m feeling a bit like this is me. I am the (failed) fantasy Wreath Rembrandt.

I’d like to say that I would love feedback from people so that I can adjust my limited and very elementary business plan, but I doubt I’ll take it well. I guess throwing me constructive criticism safely from a distance – say, behind a screen – would be the best way to receive it. I wont see your green distorted face and you wont see my red flaming one. .. and then I can (or possibly wont) adjust accordingly.

But honestly I look at these and think, “Wow, that’s so cool!” Maybe it’s the phobia people have of birds? It’s not as if i’ve created an ashtray from pigeon feathers. These are beautifully colored parrot feathers.

I don’t know. Rejection has never been my thing, but now after this fantastic lead in I wanted to announce that i’m back at it! I’m trying again. Maybe people will be blinded by the summer sun and brain damaged from the heat and restlessly searching for something to buy that does not at all relate to Back To School. If this sounds like a description of yourself, check out my Etsy shop!
