Well it’s been exactly 12 years since I opened Saffron and Genevieve, and this is probably the last time I will celebrate that anniversary. The store was incredible for me, it changed my life, my outlook, me as a person and it led me to make so many friends that are the best people I have ever known. It’s now time for the name to retire.
I don’t know if you know this, but it’s very difficult to have an online store and have people on the internet find that store unless you have a team behind you to get the website out there. That costs money that I do not have, and that’s okay. I am perfectly happy to focus on my design and color consulting business, and since that business is all me, I will be using my name.
So these blowout sales and half off sale in my online shop will continue until everything is gone. One day, when I feel I’ve done all the work I can to get my name out there and I have enough clients, I hope to make some jewelry and sell it in my shop. I know some of you are waiting for that.
I don’t really know what else you are looking for from me because I haven’t talked to you in a while. I have changed in this past year, my interests have changed and things that I like to talk about have changed. I’m not as inclined to be so personal in my writing. It might have to do with me being a CASA now or the fact that I no longer see your faces so I don’t have an image of who I am pouring my heart out to. I know a lot of you loved my writing and I feel partially obligated to keep going in that direction, but I also am letting myself be free to write about whatever I feel like. It might be as superficial (but still important) as tile or sofa design. It might be about me and my life, or the world in general. If you enjoy my writing I am glad, I hope to continue to inspire, entertain, and make you think. If it’s not for you that’s okay. You have to do what makes you happy and in this world of copious amounts of information you need to pick and choose wisely.
