I really need to get busy and blog more.
How does one do it? I have a full time job, jewelry designing on the side, home to take care of, supporting/helping my husband with his local music stuff (http://www.stillnotdead.com/), his work (http://www.snddesigns.com/), helping with a local wine shop(http://www.thebottleshoppe.biz/), writing for a blog (haven't done anything yet but hope to by this weekend. http://www.craftersattack.com/), dealing with some major family drama, and take care of my sweet dog who has been WAY TO neglected lately! I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off!
The jewelry stuff is going ok. Still not alot of sales. Traffic in my shop has slowed down as well. I know part of it is because I have no time to promote. Work has blocked etsy except for the 60 min of quota time. I try to use that time to do all of my online networking but I tend to not get very far!
I am about to make a lot of progress on my shop. This last weekend I pulled out my old 35 mm and fell back in loe with it. Too bad it isnt digital. Well I decide to invest in a really good digital one that set me back some big bucks but I feel like since it is digital i will get so much more use out of it. I am so antsy for it to get here! I plan and taking ALL NEW PICTURES of my jewelry so when I get those up I will definitely have to ask you guys what you think.
Speaking of my camera my hubby and I went to grandfathers mountain this weekend and even though it was past peak up there the valleys were amazing! I really did fall back in love with picture taking and cant wait to take more pictures! I am contemplating selling prints in my shop as well. What do you guys think?
I have a show coming up on Nov. 14th and so far that is it for shows other than my usual wine shop stop but I just have not had the time or energy to do any more. I am hoping etsy picks up for the holidays so I can make some money back-even though I will just spend it all on more beads!
This weekend I am looking forward to Halloween. We are going to a show my hubby co-sponsered and the headlining band is playing the whole dookie album! CAN NOT WAIT. I am going to dress up as little red riding hood and the hubby is the big bad wolf!
