Holy Cow!

I suppose it's time to spread the word... my jewelry will now be featured at Family Fun Cutz! Holy Cow!!! I've never made much kid jewelry, but she just took a look at what I had and picked a few things for me to make smaller versions of. Very exciting. But it's a little scary. And extremely stressful. But that's mostly because we leave on a 2 week vacation in like 12 days. Sooooo I want to make sure I get this order filled before we leave. I don't want them waiting for a month or more. That's just silly. So I'm trying to work work work in the evenings. It feels pretty slow going most of the time, but I think I can pull it off.

And, in the middle of all this, I have had other orders coming in. When it rains...... but I'm trying to remember that it's a really good thing. So I shouldn't be stressed, right? Right. Riiiiight. It's a good kind of stress. =D

Peace yo.

Finally some new jewelry! Isn't it exciting? Well, I think so at least. And what's even better is I went bead shopping today!!! WOOHOOOOOOO! Thanks to my inlaws being in town I got to take a solid 2 hours to go shopping for beads and supplies. I'm so excited to start beading some more. And on Monday I get to meet with a salon owner and see about maybe selling there. That's totally exciting. I'm curious to see how it would work. And it would mean I would have to become an official business..... which scares the *bleep* out of me! So hopefully I will have some serious thinking to do in the next few days on where I want to go with all this jewelry. But it feels good to be making some progress. =D So that's the word on the street, yo. Thanks for checking me out dudes.

Getting Going

I'm finally getting going again! WooHoo!!! It feels so good to be making more unique jewelry. The baby blanket that I've been working on for the last 2 months or so (UGH!) has been taking up too much of my time. Never again will I make one, unless someone is paying me to do it! lol But I'm happy to give a homemade gift. So back to jewelry. It's so hard to motivate myself sometimes when I don't have a deadline, but I'm working on changing that. And trying to be more organized with everything. So much to work on! I should be posting some new pictures very soon. I'm really excited by the new things I've been making.

The one bummer lately is that someone asked me to make something, and then backed out of it and decided to make it herself. I'm not mad, by any means, that she chose to do it herself. Anyone can make jewelry. But I went to the trouble of making something, by request, and on very short notice. Oh well... I can always sell it or whatever...
