Shopping for Jewelry Supplies

Can't wait for my cutter to come in!!! I ordered it from Rio Grande, and am so excited to use it to start making more designs!! It's so fun shopping for jewelry supplies, just wish it was easy to sell the finished pieces. I know eventually I'll get the hang of it, but it is just so hard to do!! I could go for online and shop for hours and hours on supplies, beads, tools, gems, wires and more. It's so quick to buy up the stuff, then when it comes in, it takes forever to put away, and find a place for it. Then looking at everything it can be overwhelming to decide where to start. The ideas just float around in my head. Then taking the pictures of the finished piece of art.... not too bad. But then cropping pictures etc, it getting easier. Then posting online, and waiting for that person looking for the item you just posted, because when they see it, they just feel like it is them. That they have to have it. Well... that was a bit of a ramble. But good to get out.

We're all supposed to blog!

I've been reading and researching on how to bring people into my store. It is really hard out there! The online world seems even bigger than the real world!! One persons suggests to stay active on your blog. But since my blog is dedicated to my jewelry, just how much can you talk about jewelry? Wouldn't that get boring... I would think so.

So, I guess we're all supposed to blog to keep people interested, and hopefully that right person will find your site and spread the word.

No resolutions!

I didn't make any new years resolutions, because that would be just setting myself up for failure. Sure there are plenty of things I would like to change about myself, but I wouldn't even know where to start. I haven't quite gotten that special feeling that someone gets when they actually reach a turning point in their life, and know they are ready, or will soon, make a life change. Nah, I like my life for the most part. I love my kids. Love making my jewelry. Have become a Dexter addict (just what is it about that guy?). Work my regular job. I enjoy that for the most part too. So not too many complaints right this second... maybe in a few minutes I will have some complaints.
