A year of change

This is the time of year that folks most often want to do some reflection, so I’ll take a minute and do that. πŸ™‚

It’s definitely been eventful for the Autumn-Born household. My husband and I have both had surgery this year (We’re both doing great!), I was diagnosed with a chronic illness a little over a year ago, and that’s been its’ own adventure (Again, I’m doing really well! πŸ™‚ ), so, of course, my creative endeavors seem to be most affected.

I have decided that I’m not going to be selling nail polish over the net anymore. It’s been increasingly cost prohibitive for me. :p I will still be carrying it at Sassafras & Sage in Angola, Indiana, though, so if you ever make it this way, you will still be able to get things. πŸ™‚

So, in that vein, I’ll be revamping my Etsy site soon. I’ll be putting up felt stuff, probably after Christmas, though, because Sass & Sage has a couple events coming up.

I’ll also be adding digital, downloadable stuff, like scrapbooking “papers” and things you can use on your Cricut, or whatever. I’ve really missed the graphic design stuff. Β I’m VERY out of practice, but it’s nice to be getting back in the swing of things.

In an effort to stay ahead of medical bills (Even with insurance, surgeries and hospital stays are EXPENSIVE), I’ve also got a couple other things going.

The first is my TeeSpring storefront! I’ve got different t-shirt designs/stickers/all sorts of things.

 

Next is my Ko-Fi page. Β I’ll be adding different digital goodies, some for free, some you’ll be able to see/use with a small payment (Either one time, or monthly, as low as a dollar!). It’ll be social media stuff, Cricut usable stuff, and other digital odds and ends that’ll lean towards the nerdy and the pagan, with smidges of whatever else strikes my fancy. πŸ™‚

I’ll be sure and post here, too, when I update the Etsy shop, and when I add new things to either TeeSpring or Ko-fi.

Thank you folks, so so much, for hanging around no matter what direction my creative shit goes. I am eternally thankful for you folks. ❀

A Small Update!

Hi! How’ve you folks been? It’s been a lot of snow for me over the last day or so, and now it’s super cold. :p Good weather for staying inside.

I wanted to give a quick update post since I’ve kind of solidified a timeline for the next few months. πŸ™‚

February 1st, I’m putting the Etsy shop in vacation mode for a bit. I’ll open it back up March 1st.Β  As I go through current, past, and future colors-to take some out, bring some back, take new photos, etc- I realized that this is a bigger project than I’d thought about.Β  Add in, also, that my day job is going into it’s busiest time of year, and I realized that I need the month of February to get all that done. πŸ™‚

So, feel free to pick up any polishes you’ve been thinking about because they may not be there in March.Β  (I’m not being a shit- I really haven’t finalized the list yet. :p )

In the meantime, though, I will still be tweeting pics of polishes and other things because I am SUPER happy with this new macro lens I bought for my phone (Thanks to a tip from the lovely Dragonsworn Cosmetics! ) so be sure and follow me on twitter!

Thanks, folks, as always, for your support. 2019 is gonna be amazing! ❀

March and Spring and Stuff

Been a minute, I know. I’ve been busy at work, and waiting for winter to be done in the part of the world I call home. πŸ™‚ Today, though, the sun is shining and the birds are singing and the snow is gone, so here I am with an update. πŸ™‚

I had planned to release the spring line in the middle of March, but then I got to thinking about how I opened the Etsy shop on April 2nd of last year.Β  So, I’ll be releasing the spring line- I’m calling it Garden Party, cuz that’s what the colors make me feel like- on that date. πŸ™‚ In March, aside from the birthstone polish, I’ll be releasing a couple random polishes I’ve been working on, including one that I think I want y’all to name for me. πŸ™‚

 

I mentioned March’s birthstone polish- Aquamarine is generally considered March’s birthstone so I paid homage to that with this polish, although it’s a bit brighter than the stone generally is.

It’ll be in the Etsy shop on March 1st. πŸ™‚ And throughout the month of March, I’ll be previewing the new line as well as a few other things as we lead up to the 1st anniversary of BeeFae Cosmetics as an actual thing. ❀

September’s Polish Pair and news!

Hi! I’m here to show off September’s Polish Pair and give a bit of news out!

First- The BeeFae Etsy shop is having a sale! Β Etsy’s recently given us the tools to run actual sales, and, so I am checking these tools out by having a sale. Through Tuesday, you can save 10% on 20$ or more! That’s 2 polishes! Not shabby, yeah?

Along with that, I’m keeping August’s Polish Pair in the shop for the duration of the sale, so if you haven’t picked them up yet, now’s your chance!

Okay! Now to September’s Polish Pair. This month I was playing around with the idea of the Northern Lights. Β They’re definitely on my bucket list to see. So, these two polishes are, like August’s, meant to go together.

The first is called The Merry Dancers. I was reading about how various ancient northern folks had looked at the Lights, and this was one of the ways Scottish folks used to refer to the Aurora Borealis, and I liked the idea, so I applied it to this polish.It’s a cool blue shimmer that has a gentle color shift between purple/pink and green and it’s proven exeedingly difficult to photograph well. *grin*20170830_100533

 

Next up, we’ve got Bardic Cloak. It’s sheer and sparkly and I really really love it.

20170830_100500

The cool thing about them is that you can put a coat of Bardic Cloak over The Merry Dancers for extra fun!

So, I’ll get these in the shop early tomorrow (The 1st of September), that way you’ll have the chance to buy these at a discount for the weekend!

I’ve got some more things up my sleeve, and I’ll be talking more about them over the next few weeks!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

June and the Monthly Polish Pair

It’s halfway through the month and I’m just now blogging about June’s Polish Pair!

20170522_133714

June’s been a very busy month-my kiddo just graduated high school so we’ve just finished with all the whirlwind activity surrounding that and things are finally settling down.

Beachy State of Mind and Summer Splash are demi matte polishes, which means they’re balanced between matte and shiny. It’s a great look for summer fun. I’ve been wearing both of them constantly (In between testing for the next set!)-I love them so much.

They’ll be available ONLY till the end of June. I’ve decided that the monthly Polish Pairs will only be available in that month (May’s is the exception because I was still deciding, but they’re leaving at the end of June, too.). Β Will they ever be available again? I’m not going to say no, but certainly not for awhile. πŸ™‚

There won’t be a Polish Pair for July, because there will be a WHOLE NEW SET! And I’ll be talking about that in a couple of days! πŸ™‚ Wooo!

Get Them While You Can!

Hi folks! You’ve got a little over a week to get both of May’s colors at a discount! (The same with the full starter set-Once May is over, you can buy them singly still, of course, but you won’t be able to get the discounted price!)

il_570xN.1189076012_2nu0

 

Through the month of June, you can still buy May’s colors, but after June, they’ll be taken from the shop. Β Forever? Who knows. πŸ˜€ I suppose that depends on you folks, so let me know if you like the colors and they may make a return later on.

In other news, I was playing with glitter awhile ago, and came up with something I loved so much I wanted to share it with you folks. Beyond the Seventh Wave is a really cool polish for a couple of reasons-I mean, it looks amazing, yeah? And it’s my first foray into jelly polish.

il_570xN.1203983518_qv6e

Later this week, I’ll formally announce June’s 2 Colors (even though I’ve teased them all over Instagram recently! πŸ˜€ ), and the next full line of BeeFae polish is nearly ready for testing-with a tentative release around the first of July.

Lastly, I am learning about, and will soon be playing with, thermochromic pigments (The kind that change color with temperature changes!). I’m excited!

I hope ya’ll have a good, productive week. Remember that you’re awesome. πŸ™‚
