Friends, I have some news to share with you.  I’ve been praying a lot about Funky Fish and what direction God wants me to go in.  Honestly, the past 7 years have felt like one giant whirlwind.  It’s been an amazing, wonderful adventure and I don’t regret one single second.  But I need to press the pause button.   This holiday season was incredibly fruitful but combined with my horrible lack of organization, I’ve created one giant mess. 

After praying yesterday morning, I just felt God telling me “Be still. Breathe. Rest.”  Rest really is a foreign concept to me but I’m going to listen!  So what does that look like for Funky Fish?  Well, the Etsy shop is going on “vacation”.  The website store is coming down.   This will be temporary.  Will I stop creating during that time?  Absolutely not!  I’ll still be active on social media and I will still be sharing my creations which will be available for sale.  But trying to keep up with orders and reorganize my entire studio and create all at the same time feels like the definition of insanity.   Is this forever?  NO WAY.

I recently purchased some crazy awesome new tools and I can’t wait to put them into use and share with you.  I just need a little time.

Scripture tells us that God prunes us so we may produce more fruit.  I believe this to be true.  And there are seasons of pruning.   I’m keeping it real folks but Funky Fish’s vineyard looks like it hasn’t been pruned in years. 

I want to give you, my customers, the very best of me. 

Please continue to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.  I really can’t begin to thank you all for being the kindest and most encouraging customers ever.  The messages and emails I receive from customers who share their stories about why a certain piece of jewelry was significant to them makes my heart so full.  I feel so unbelievably blessed that I get to do this EVERY DAY!

Trusting in Him,
