Time Just Flies By!

| No Comments

I must need my glasses cleaned because the calendar says it's already almost September! Not to worry. We can look forward to fall leaves, pumpkin flavored dishes and oh yes, the anticipation of holiday shopping. Yikes!


It all seems to have happened so fast for me over here at Design Specimen. One minute I was working a boring 9-5 gig and now I am nearing 5 months on this exciting adventure. I have never been so happy nor felt so supported by animal lovers like myself until now. I am working very hard to get even more designs done, stock up my shop for the holidays and continue to work with organizations that want donations.

That brings up a question I have for you. Do you have a favorite local animal organization that you'd like to see me work with in some capacity? Please let me know! I'd love to help. Yes, I am keen on helping my Michigan peeps but amazing animal groups everywhere are doing tremendous things for animals too not just in Michigan. Please send me a comment to this blog post or email me using the contact page of my website. I'd love to hear who you think I should work with next! :)

The next pressing thing I have been working on has been re-photographing items and putting together a wholesale catalog. I have already been approached by a few places who would like to sell my jewelry. It's very exciting but will require me to work harder but that's what caffeine and smiles are for right? That brings up my next question. Do you know a storefront that may want to sell my jewelry or a craft show that you think I should know about? I'd love to hear from you! I have already sold my work to people all around the country and even abroad but I want to keep connecting with even more people through the messages my jewelry sends. We are all working to end animal suffering in some way.


And the last thing I want to tell you about is the ornaments I am working on. These will feature animals in a holiday festive type scene. They will be limited edition and customizing options available for no extra charge. As soon as I get the first one made I'll post pictures and if anyone is interested I will take pre-orders. This will be a unique, one-of-a-kind gift for your favorite animal lover/activist. More details soon!


Take care and thanks for all you do for the animals! :)
