A QUICK UPDATE

Image found here 

I know i haven't been the best blogger this week. Can't wait to get back to my usual habits on Monday, honestly. We returned home today, although we had a lovely time with Chanel and Nikos, we did miss our home. There are still small earthquakes every 10 minutes and big ones every half an hour. In good moments every one hour or two hours. 

It's kinda scary :) I did manage to have a shower without any accidents though! We prepared a small  emergency suitcase, that is next to the door. Our jackets and shoes are next to the door as well and we're going to "sleep" in the living room with our clothes on. There are a lot of people staying at the boat that is available for everyone on the island, some have left the island and there are still some who stay home. Our neighbourhood is deserted.. well i guess you get the idea! 

Life still goes on though, even though we are with one foot outside the door. On a bright side of this week, i had the wonderful honour to be featured on two wonderful places.

      
And also found the time finally to update my shops policies, information and a little story on how my necklaces are made. Literally you can have a walkthrough in our day, on "Concrete prisms on the make". The past week there has been an explosion of love for my shop and i couldn't be more grateful and hell, HAPPY!

oh my goodness hope you all are okay please update us. I used to live in Oklahoma while my husband finished school and they have tornadoes all the time and it was very scarey so I understand how you all must feel. I hope nothing happens sweets. I plan to order another necklace this week :)

Wow, Corina. You guys have been in my thoughts all week! I can't believe they're still going on, that's so scary. I have never been in a major earthquake before, only little ones, so I can't imagine the fear and worry you must've felt. So sorry, my dear! I am so happy you all are safe though. So happy. <3

I hear you though, I can't wait to get back to a regular routine as well!

Loved reading your features & interview. Also, REALLY love how you included the "Making" to your Etsy shop page. SO SMART! And personal, I love it. :)

xoxo stay safe my dear!

Corina I was so sorry to hear about your situation when Lucy told me! We've been praying for you guys, it must be horrid having such uncertainty about what's going on. Your attitude is amazing, all things considered!

I'm so glad to hear that it's slowly calming down over there Corina and that you guys kept safe & sound during all of the trouble. Let's hope it stops completely so you can get back to normal soon.
