Activity


So, I think this is the longest I've ever been away from DA. It's been well over a year.

A few things that went down: I started a business, some of you read about that but I never went into detail about what it was.

I now run, full-time, my hair and body care company, Belle Butters, LLC. Everything is handmade by me. Initially, I was working full-time in research at a major medical university and I needed to supplement my income and have more of a hands-on creative outlet, so I started my biz. My biz has become quite the buzz and I've received a lot of press and I even went to NYC last year for Fashion Week and had a two-day event there for my business (pics to come). When I came back from NYFW in September '11, I was laid off from my job in research. It would've been 5 years for me, had I made it to December. It was bittersweet because I like my job a lot, but I was working 12-15 hour days to keep up with my biz and orders and getting dog tired. So, it all worked out. I'm full-time for my biz now and working from home is awesome!

So, without going on and on, I'm back to upload tons of pictures I've taken over the past year. They will all mostly be from my Pentax Spotmatic, using Kodak/Ilford/Fuji film and others from my point and shoot(mostly my product shots). I had no idea I could be so handy with a camera until it came time to shoot pics for my biz.

I'm sorry to appear and then disappear like this, repeatedly. The folks that have been around with me when I first showed up to the online art world are still making art and I think that is awesome and amazing! I also got your messages and you're welcome! I'm going to go and browse and fav like a maniac!
