So This is the New Year…

Posted on by

broken footI hope 2013 is off to a wonderful year for all of you! Sorry for the radio silence over on my end. Just four days into the New Year, I had a bad fall and broke my foot (thanks to leftover sciatica from a car wreck). The fifth metatarsal on my left foot to be exact. Which turns out to mean no walking at all for six weeks! It’s hard to not let news like that at the start of a what seemed like a promising new year dampen my spirit a little bit. And no walking means I am on crutches/a knee walker for my 35th birthday at the end of the month and Valentine’s Day, too.

I’m trying to stay positive and learn some lessons from it all. I’ve joked that 2013’s big lesson to me is patience! Just before it happened, I’d been thinking of all the things I’d wanted to accomplish in 2013. I think this was a big message to slooooooow it down.

get well soon flowers

I’ve been debating a lot lately, too, what the future of SoCoDivka Designs looks like. I started in 2009 as a creative outlet to a very uncreative webmaster career at the time. Etsy was just beginning to rise in popularity, and it was an easy and fun way to get found. But now, almost four years later, I’m running another business, Nostalgia Film, that I co-founded in 2010. As it continues to grow, I find myself devoting more and more time to it. When my husband took a full-time television position late last summer, I quickly found myself as a full-time editor, teaching myself rapidly and taking a course at the Austin School of Film to fill in the gaps. Being an event filmmaker/editor has allowed me to express my creativity in a whole new way and make art that really has an impact on people’s lives, creating heirlooms that they will enjoy for many years. The emotional reward from it is priceless.

valentines day jewelry gifts So, I find myself with less and less time to create jewelry. I still enjoy it and do it as time allows, but my production has slowed. Two of my consignment boutiques and I parted ways last year, so now I am exclusively on etsy. I’m still giving thought to the occasional event, and have applied to the February Austin Flea (before the broken foot, so even if I do get in, it will be a huge challenge to pull off). And now that I work many weekends filming weddings, it’s harder and harder to take off for events.

For the time being, find my work online. In addition to jewelry, I have medium-format film photography in my shop, too. I’m having a 25% off Valentine’s Day Sale on select picks! 

Next time, I hope I have more exciting new to report! Thanks for continuing on this journey with me. As I figure out my next steps–literally and figuratively–I’ll share them with you! Happy New Year!
