Made myself an #IggyAzalea inspired necklace for the show last night. She was awesome and it was a perfect night. <3 #lasermade

My latest creation :) #lasermade #amplifiedlight

So today I realized a five year long dream as I was able to successfully complete the installation of my new laser cutting machine and create my first items.
I was just so excited I&#8217;ve already listed my first thing on Etsy. ;)
This less than three bracelet can be found at my brand new Etsy shop, Amplified Light. The shop itself is a work in progress but I just wanted to share as I&#8217;m just so crazily excited that this is finally happening.

Figuring it out :) #lasermade

The first 50 were on a deadline and shipped out last week. This is the next 100, which were shipped out this morning. I was also able to get the remaining 350 knotted over the weekend, all that’s left is to add all the findings. :) #500bracelets

And so it begins! It’s not everything, but enough to get me started for sure. Excited to see how much I can accomplish over this three day weekend! :) #500bracelets

Received all this #uberlube during the meeting at work today. This stuff is awesome.

Applying for jobs is like playing the lotto

You can’t dream about what you’d do with the winnings unless you buy a ticket.

Q

Anonymous asked:

Hey, that sucks with your job. Really glad you're still motivated, and you should be proud of everything you've accomplished. Could you look at other job options? Maybe write a book and get it published?

A

Thank you. <3

I’m definitely always looking for a different job, and I absolutely plan to publish at least one book within my lifetime. I am often struck with ideas I’d love to write about, but have trouble expanding on them fully. 

Right now I’m concentrating on learning HTML5 and CSS3. I believe a job in web design is something I would really love and be really good at as well.

I’m also always expanding my side business. I’d love nothing more than to be able to work from home, managing all of my e-commerce shops, a website of my own, and I’d be able to do consulting/freelance/contract work on the side as well. Then I would also have more time to devote to writing, too.

It makes me so sad that I keep having these kinds of issues when it comes to full-time employment. I had the highest hopes for this place and this job when I first started, I haven’t even reached my first full year and I’m already just so jaded and drained.

I work my ass off, am one of the most reliable when it comes to most of my peers (I’ve never abandoned any of my work — or just simply not done it — and left it for someone else to deal with, yet I’m often having to pick up the slack for others) and I continuously get poked and picked on for the stupidest shit. Seriously — I feel like I’m in elementary school with the the way I am talked to. The only way I can figure it is that they’re really trying to push me out, get me to quit.

I work so hard, because I fucking love the grind. I truly do. I absolutely love making money, and I love knowing that I earned it. I have such high hopes for my future, I’m constantly setting goals and I only ever want to be even better. That seems to completely turn people off, how dare I be motivated and want to work hard for the things I want?! 

This world doesn’t make sense. I cannot wait for the day I am fully self-employed.

It’ll be better one day. But for now, it fucking sucks and I’m majorly over it. I can’t believe it’s so hard to find a company that will simply just treat me with respect and not walk all over me. I would never treat my employees like this and, at the very least, I can add these experiences to my list of things not to do.

wow

no one cares

Hey guys!

In case you aren’t already aware, I’m currently running an Indiegogo campaign to ask for assistance in making a 5+ years long dream of mine come true.

I’m asking for help in purchasing a laser cutting machine so that I can create laser cut acrylic and wood jewelry, accessories and supplies.

Basically, anything I can create in a vector file on my computer can be cut with this machine. That means the possibilities are endless!

Any contribution of $25 or more will receive that amount in store credit at any of my Amplified Light shops.

All contributions are immensely appreciated. if you’d like to help but can’t assist financially, please help me spread the word by posting my campaign on your social networks. 

My campaign can be found here:

Thanks so much!
