I'M STILL HERE . . . SORTA?

Hi. So the last time I posted on RA's insta was December 19, 2019. 

What happened, you ask? I started Wait. What? Consulting to help creatives with numbers - like bookkeeping and organization. (PHOTO TO THE LEFT) I thought that I could do both, make things and do books, but clearly I can not. (PHOTO TO THE RIGHT) Also, I'm just the type of person that if someone emails me with a sales tax emergency I cannot, not help. Honestly, I love helping creatives get their shit together.

The funny part about is that I am also a creative who doesn't really have her shit together - oh, I know my margins - but I hate selling and I feel icky talking about my work. (I'm sure a lot of you can relate) 

I still sew and make things like this skirt with fun yellow cheese doodles on it.

And this cute gold mask for Drewe Smith for WILMA magazine.

I've made a bunch of mask and donated a good bit to healthcare workers.

I made a matching dress for this one.

But mostly I have just helping other creatives with small business finances. It's not where I expected to be but it's where I am and it feels right. Fashion and making things will always have my heart but for now Wait. What? is my priority. I have been making things under Ruby Assata for almost 20 years (GULP) so I'm not going to stop I'm just taking a break? 

 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU . . . IS MY WHOLE WEBSITE IS OVER HALF OFF. 

SUPER LIMITED QUANTITIES !! I just want these tiny wallets to go to a good home!! THEY REALLY ARE GREAT! There are a couple other goodies on the site, look around and get them before they are gone.
