Abby’s Reflections #36 | What’s In A Name?

Abigale comes from Abilities + Nightingale (the small ordinary brown bird known for its extraordinary voice). Sometimes things aren’t as they might appear. ~Abigale

Changing perceptions is a massive undertaking but I believe anything is possible. If we could throw out everything we THINK we KNOW about a GROUP of people, allow ourselves to be accepting, and place our focus on INDIVIDUALS it brings us closer to inclusivity.

I am probably in the midst of a meltdown but I want to assure you it’s a good thing! If you recall I mentioned a while back that Bold Blind Beauty would be undergoing some changes and as I write this I’m knee-deep techy heaven.

I’m not going to bore you will all the details but today I was able to integrate an e-commerce component into Bold Blind Beauty (it’s not up and running yet) so I’ll be tinkering around for an indeterminate amount of time testing and tweaking. In the interim, I wanted to share sample merchandise which eventually will be carried in the store. Please keep in mind I am not a photographer and not seeing very well can produce some weird outcomes that look semi alright to me but perhaps not as well to the public.

Description is in the body of the post.One of the things that keep me up at night is how to make life a little more accessible for my blind and visually impaired friends. Depending on our level of sight loss, many of us rely on our other senses to consume information which in turn enables us to view the world a little differently from those who can see.

Providing tactile products is high on my list of priorities and one of many ways to do this is with embroidery, embossing, beading, and other methods. I’m so excited at the prospect of what can be achieved even when I’m sleeping I’m constantly envisioning greater possibilities.

I’m saying all of this to say, if you notice some strange goings-on not too worry, I’ve got it under control.
