In the last two weeks a bunch of opportunities have piled themselves on top of each other and I am a little stressed out and EXTREMELY exhausted right now, to say the least. I said yes to every single offer, and now my to-do list is a mile long and I slept for three hours last night so I could work late and get up early to work some more and I'm feeling pretty crazy. But I also feel like this is really the beginning of something exciting so it's worth it to me. This is more or less the first time I've been paid to do something since my last architectural project ended four years ago. I call it "starting a business", but it's really just me diving in to a ton of work. No website, no business cards, no logo. I'm just Tiffanie Turner of papel SF and I'm rolling with it for now!
A handful of people have asked me to share a D.I.Y. tutorial for the "closed" piñata I shared photos of in my original giant peony piñata post (the hot fuschia one). I have gotten half way through it but I need to get the piece I was using for the tutorial finished and shipped to Maine in the next few days so I had to abandon photographing as I go for now. I will come back to it, because it is a bit easier than the larger peonies and is still a stunner, and it's cool that people are asking me for it.
I do want to write about more than just paper and flowers, and I also don't want to only show up here every time some cool opportunity comes along, but just bear with me a few more weeks, there's so much going on right now. The season has changed and so will my content I am sure. I do want to tell you that I just signed a contract to teach a paper craft LIVE online and with a studio audience in November, which pretty much guarantees I won't lose a pound before then. I'm really excited about that one and I'll keep you posted.
I hope you have a really great weekend, and I'll see you next week. I leave you with a photo of a giant peony stamen cluster I cooked up a few nights ago. Thank you for continuing to come by here, it still means a lot to me!
