A new project

I can admit I am a science nerd kind of person. I am in my fourth year at the University of Toronto, majoring in Biology and Psychology. I am planning on going to graduate school next fall for Ecology and/or Conservation Biology. I work as a teaching assistant for an Ecology course and a lab assistant for a freshwater ecology lab.

You would not easily imagine the side of me I am about to show.

I am not just a scientist, but an artist and an entrepreneur (albeit a newbie). I opened up virtual shop on Etsy (www.orangefire.etsy.com) last June, and I am still working on making handmade products for the Etsian (and general) marketplace.

I have a few items left in store at the moment, but I am getting ready for a rather large holiday catalog that will hopefully boost my sales. The time and monetary investment going into this project will be considerably larger than any of my other; hopefully results will show.

Meanwhile, I must wait for my supplies to arrive!
