butterfly metamorphosis


Well, I've done it. I've changed. I've decided that it was high time to drop the pseudonyms and start creating under my actual, birth-given name: April Leino. It's not too shabby a name, after all. So why not make things a little more personal? This change feels good.

For those of you who follow my Twitter and Instagram accounts, you will have seen and heard snippets about my plans for a grandiose shop re-launch where a full collection would be revealed in all it's complete and fully-stocked glory for several months now. Life kept getting in the way and slowing down the process, as it has a tendency to do. I decided that enough was enough and that I needed to stop talking about it and actually just get something listed or I might not ever actually do anything with the things that I had already made... just because I didn't have everything ready to the point that I had imagined. OCD much? Yes. It is my way.

So, instead of a grand re-opening with so many wonderful things that will make you lose your mind with wanting- we have April Leino doing things the only way she knows how. Slow and steady. A nice deliberate and leisurely pace of pretty. Hopefully you will still lose your mind with wanting just a little bit because I think this Egyptomania theme I'm working with lately is a good one.
