Busy Busy Busy!

No post in a while… well shucks! 

Mid-terms for summer school are here, and so is the big fundraiser! Lots of crazy design ideas swirling around the store these past couple weeks! I’m excited to work with Sarah, a new intern who is fantastic at drawing. Definitely going to utilize her talents! 


Still figuring out how to master the booklet set up on indesign. Until then, I’ll just draw it out a bunch. 


Started out most of the day today alone. Hopefully i’ll see ppl to ask for help about this stuff soon… Hoping to get enough work done today to make the rest of the week easier!



I Love My Job!!

As I’ve said before, I’m never certain about what to write in a blog… 

The only thing that is really going through my mind is how much I love this store and the job that i’m doing. 

I love walking in every morning and looking at all the cool stuff as I walk to the back where I do most of my work. I love the colors in the store. I love the variety of people that come through each day. I get excited on the days when I walk in and there are tons of customers and all the volunteers are busy setting things up and helping people out. 

I love how the radio plays Journey and The Proclaimers. 

But what I love the most is the feeling I get knowing that I’m doing something for this shop. 

Everyone who volunteers there is so nice… and I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if I don’t get my hands on a pair of those Sseko sandals by the end of this internship… 

If anyone is reading this who lives in the area, YOU NEED TO CHECK THIS PLACE OUT AND GET SOME OF THEIR COOL PRODUCTS.

And in case you haven’t heard, TOMORROW NIGHT AT 7 PM THERE WILL BE A FILM HOSTED BY MUSTARD SEED FAIR TRADE. Here’s the link (I hope it works):


Now I need to get back to my work so that I can have a little less to do this weekend. Leaving for a wedding in Chicago tomorrow! 


Until Next Time!



First ad was successfully published in Columbia Prime Magazine! WOOHOO!! 

As of right now, I’m retouching photos on some great jewelry that is sold at Mustard Seed.
Things are starting to heat up around here (Not just the temperature outside).  My online summer school classes just started and I have to figure out how to manage my time between classes, my internship, and my social life. Staring at a computer for almost 11 hours a day is getting tough! Luckily I walk every morning so I can have at least SOME variation in my life. 


Just have to finish retouching all these photos by Friday! Then it’s time to tackle the website!! Check back soon!
