In a couple of weeks, my Blissbug wares – beeswax candles and salves and lipbalms – will be for sale for the first time in a local store. This is huge. I am completely a-buzz.
I’m not even selling my stuff yet -- um, I am still producing it and figuring out the pricing and the display, and and -- and already I’m experiencing such interesting tension between what my vision is and what other people think it should be.
I didn’t expect to feel so challenged, so questioned, so annoyed, but then it dawned on me:
All that squeezing, pushing pressure is forcing me to make diamonds.
