And…here we go!

Holy moly, I’ve gone and done it. As of today, Lara Eve Designs is an official entity with a web address, a permit and license or two, and a sole proprietor. Gulp. *Me*.

I feel like the universe is trying to tell me something: today I nearly killed a dog, saw an actual dead human being, and gave birth to a long awaited dream of taking my art out into the world. Inside my head is a litany that kind of sounds like this: “Yippee, I have a seller’s permit DEAD BODY  I can’t wait to buy things wholesale DEAD BODY wow, all this tax stuff is seriously confusing DEAD BODY I can’t believe this is all finally happening DEAD BODY.” You get the idea.

I don’t know what I’m supposed to take from all this…balance? Life out of death? Beginnings and endings? Yes. I think so. All those. I’ve had loved ones die; I’ve also given birth (ask me sometime about the birth of my my son, affectionately known as Gigantor). I know that both of those processes are messy, terrifying, God-awful painful, and hold moments of breathtaking beauty.

So. To try and make sense of this crazy, tumultuous day, I have decided the following:

  1. Today marks the death of my fears and doubts about putting my heart and soul out for everyone to see.
  2. Today marks the birth of the next, really cool chapter of my life.

I think I better hold on tight to something.
