Not Magic Studio

A small but notable change about the shop's instagram page and new page @notmagicstudio | I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about what I want for this 'Not Magic' brand versus what it's growing into. I want to do so so so much and I have trouble organizing my thoughts in a way that makes sense to anyone else. But this makes sense to me.
I've created another instagram page @notmagicstudio which will be where I cultivate my personal work. I want the shop to be its own thing, with more than just me and my creations. But I also want to make, and I can't limit myself to just being a buyer. I am a creator! I want to make jewelry and beauty products and illustrations and textile art and so so so much more. But I also want to stock all the new independent designers I am falling in love with and cool vintage finds. I want to have a brick-and-mortar shop/studio within the next 3 years. These are my dreams and Not Magic is my baby and I'm excited to post about the journey both on @notmagicshop and over at @notmagicstudio
Thank you for reading my rambling thoughts. I will continue to experiment with my own creative projects and I will also continue to curate a selection of beautiful products to help you live your best life. 

Brick + Mortar Dreams

I spend a lot of time daydreaming about the future. Sometimes that's good. Sometimes it means I spend a lot of time doing a whole lot of nothing. Lately I've been dreaming about one day opening up a brick & mortar shop. I guess right now that's my big dreamy life-long goal. I have a long way to go, but luckily I'm still young and (relatively) energetic. I don't even know if this is a feasible goal, or even if it's what I really want. But for right now, I'll keep fantasizing.

hello world

This is the first post. :) I would like the Not Magic blog to be a place to post about what's inspiring me lately, what I'm working on, and some cool things I've discovered. Stay tuned!
