Slowing Down

For a while, the breakneck pace was make jewelry and boxes, photo, edit, upload, list, blog, plurk, facebook.... and work full time. Since then, I am refining my schedule. Since creation can't be forced, unfortunately, I create when I have a great idea, now. I spend less time on the computer, in 'self-promo' mode. It is mostly due to the fact that I focused on a project. I am happy to say that little by little I am moving toward my goal of having enough inventory to do my first home show! Yay!! I don't even really care how great sales are, but for the experience, and to get my stuff in front of new ladies who have never seen it will be so fun, I'm really looking forward to it. It is going to be March 7th. My friend Lara has agreed to host a party and invite her friends, it will be the perfect way for them to catch up, have some food, and buy some jewelry that they can afford!
With prices ranging from $10- $35 this is not like a typical "jewelry show." I am fairly well prepared, and may even have my new logo in time for it.

If you or someone you know would like to host a show (Richmond or Roanoke) let me know! I will be happy to work out 'freebies' for the hostess and can make items geared toward specific friends-- a little more classic and conservative, or really eclectic and funky!! Mostly, it would be a great way to re-connect with people. If you know any other women who have home businesses, have a night where you "team up." I wouldn't mind coming in on a Mary Kay party and I'm sure the rep would be fine, too! Support women in business and take care of your gift giving needs, all at one fun time!


  1. very cute earrings! Good luck with your show!

  2. Ooooo I just posted pics to my blog on how productive I can be if I step away from the computer! Good luck with your show - and you're outside Richmond? My husband and i are thinking of relocating to Richmond, but alas, need jobs first. :-(

  3. Have a great time at the show, good luck!!
    Great blog and jewelery!
