Tiffany, my bloggy friend over at Live Happy just launched her etsy shop today and I wanted to show her some artist love and support. I had found her blog a few years ago and fell in love with her positive attitude and braveness to leave her well paid 8-5 job. I loved that she put herself out there, made a plan and just did it. Not without taking a trip to France first and slowly diving into different passions of her: painting and paper press. Plus, her obsession with Anthro, decor, food and pictures of her puppy Maggie make her blog extra fun.
When I read her blog and she was determined to leave her job for something more fulfilling, I felt the same way and just didn’t know how to take the first step. Partly because I wasn’t sure what I was more passionate about and wanted to pursue, which made it hard to quit my job and go figure it out while bills piled mile high. Soon enough I was in that exact position, not by choice, but it forced me to figure out what I loved most and so my journey into photography and yoga began. I reached out to her (just like I did with Lacy also from the bay area) when I had been laid off and was just finding myself, she replied back and sent me lot’s of support and so I became even a bigger fan.
Be sure to check out her blog and etsy shop. Oh how I wish I had this talent, but since I don’t I’ll happily admire hers, below are her latest works of art. Aren’t they the cutest?
Tiffany, best wishes on the launch of your etsy shop… I can’t wait to see more wonderful things come from you. There must be something about the bay area, you’re all just way too nice! 😉
