We’re often our own worst critics, and I definitely struggle with being 10x more critical of my own work than anyone else would ever be. The same goes for music, although I’ve experienced such a wonderful change lately- ever since I accepted the uncertainty and shift of my career path and life goals, and really let go of the pressure I had been putting on myself to be great, my playing has improved in a kind of amazing way.
And it’s so funny- I found out yesterday that I won the FSU Doctoral Concerto Competition, which means I’ll be performing the Nielsen flute concerto with the University Symphony Orchestra next fall!

Life is so hilarious: throughout my undergrad I wanted to win a concerto competition SO BADLY but never did, and it was soul crushing every time I was awarded second or third place instead of first. It felt like such a dramatic failure. But I went into this competition with a completely, truly neutral mindset- if I won, great, if I didn’t win, great; I was just going to enjoy playing a great piece of music and whatever happened was fine with me. I didn’t over-practice or stress about it. To be honest, I didn’t think there was any way I would win competing against some of the best violinists, pianists, and other wind players I know, but it was fun to try anyways.

I know the win might be ironic to some, considering the content of my blog post from last week, but I honestly feel so much more at ease when I play lately and I guess that came across! And I am SO excited to come back to Tallahassee next fall to perform this concerto! 😄 #happydance

Naked dishes in progress✨
would anyone be interested in seeing more understated options in my shop, like dishes without gold accents or glossy varnish? What do you think?

I haven’t talked to almost anyone about this, but I’m getting married in exactly 26 days!

Yes, it’s rather unconventional: we have been planning a June 2019 wedding for months that is still happening, but we’re getting legally married in a very small ceremony next month in California before Tyler goes into basic training for the Air Force. So we’ll be married before we do our engagement photos, before I go dress shopping, and before we finish planning the rest of our wedding details! 😆

Not going to lie, I had a hard time with this idea at first, because it seemed like already being married would somehow make our big wedding anticlimactic or less special. But the more we talked about it, the more I realized that fear was ridiculous, and all I care about is being married to the man I love, regardless of when or how it happens. Also, now we get to celebrate TWO anniversaries instead of just one! Sounds like a pretty good arrangement to me. 😄
Does anyone else have an unconventional marriage/wedding story? I’d love to hear!

I clipped a few of these blooms from the beautiful spring bouquet that Tyler got me last week, for no other reason than I didn’t feel good and he wanted to cheer me up. I find myself asking how I got so lucky on a daily basis. 😄🤷🏻‍♀️

So happy to hear feedback from my customers- thanks for the kind and thoughtful words about the Charlotte earrings, Emily! ★★★★★ "These are exactly what I hoped for! Perfect size, light weight, and well made. " Emily D.

Spending my Friday night working in my studio + drinking tea while everyone else in town is out hitting the bars... but I’m not even mad. I am happy hanging out with my work; that’s how you know it’s love. 😄❤️

I’m so excited for next Thursday, because it’s the official launch of @thehandmadepopup! This online event showcases makers from all over the world, in so many different categories including ceramics, home and decor, fiber, fine art, jewelry, clothing, and more. I’ve been low key IG stalking many of the other vendors and feeling very lucky to be included among them- there’s some seriously amazing talent going on!
I’m including a few of my favorite earring styles in my listings, including one that is exclusive to the pop-up, as well as a few trinket dish styles!
Pictured: Janie, Luna, and Mona in Seafoam- I get so many compliments every time I wear these guys! ✨

All gold everything ✨

Yay or nay? Personally I wasn’t sure about this design before I put them on, but as soon as I did I was like 😍 I’ll post a pic of them on later!
I’m still not feeling 100% but a fun pair of earrings sure helps!

This dish design is one of my personal favorites, and definitely one of the best selling styles for wholesale in particular. And guess what? It’s not ceramic! Benefits to alternative clays (polymer in this case) vs ceramic include lower cost, no special equipment needed, and my favorite, which is that the dishes won’t break if they’re dropped on the floor (or thrown on the floor... I’ve tested these pretty extensively and have never had one break unless I TRIED to break it by bending it past the point of its natural give).
I would love to work with ceramics at some point in the future, and maybe even integrate ceramic items into my current designs, but I will never lose my love for polymer! ❤️
