Slacking again...

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 (, his work (, helping with a local wine shop(, writing for a blog (haven't done anything yet but hope to by this weekend., 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!
