so, i'm back to some light blogging this week after my hiatus. i've taken some time to relax, not draw and do some new things.
i felt like i had reached a real moot point with my work a few weeks ago and over analyzing my inability to produce work that i felt had the right quality was leaving my on the verge of anxiety attacks in the studio - yikes!
it dawned on me whilst i was busy trying not to draw that i needed a distraction. to not continually force myself day in and out to produce drawings and most importantly for it to be something that i love almost as equally as my art.
since the beginning of the year and in a bid to live more simply i've been on a mission to get rid of vast amount of 'stuff' from our house. i accumulate things at a rate of knots and we have very little room and almost no storage. i just buy things without knowing why i need them sometimes - they just lure me in. damn you bric-a-brac i just love ya!
and then it dawned on me (it's been a week of dawns) that etsy is a marketplace for not only handmade goods but vintage items too and thusly i have come to open another shop on etsy for vintage items. not only am i able to sell some of my personal collection of what-nots but also indulge myself a little when i'm out thrifting .
without further ado i give you: Restless General Store
the shop is a mix of home decor and household goods alongside paper ephemera, clothing and accessories and the items therein are chosen for my love of well-made and aged objects from materials such as wood, glass, metal, leather and paper.
it's a work in progress but i hope you have the time to stop by for a browse - you never know what you may find!
