Worky, Work… Busy Bee…

So, I have been slacking off in the “Blogging” Department.  When I started this, I wanted to write at least once a week, but life tends to get in the way. 

I have been working on a lot of Jewelry and a few other random crafts, but haven’t been very good about writing down my journeys.  I have been working a lot on my Etsy shop (check it out! and joined the Eastern Washington Etsy Team.  The whole process has been a little overwhelming at first, but I am slowly easing in to it (I think).

I am currently sending some of my inventory to Ohio for a craft show that my Brother-in-law’s Mother is participating in.  I don’t know much about the show, but she wears a necklace that I made and is always getting compliments and inquiries about it.  Since she has been telling people about my work, she thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get a few sales.  Should be interesting.

I am also preparing for my in-home jewelry show in May.  Seems like I have a lot of time, but for the first time in a while, I don’t have much inventory.  So I have to start all over again…  which I actually look forward to 😉  I get tired of seeing the same old pieces get looked over because they are no long the latest “thing”.  It gives me a change to update my entire stock.  However, it’s going to be a lot of work!

Still working on my craft room and my craft table.  The table is put together, but needs to be painted.  The craft room also needs to be painted, but I’m not sure when I will have the time or the funds to tackle that project.

Oh, and then there is that whole work 40+ hours at my “grown-up” job…  still cutting into my creative time!

This weekend I am headed over to the west side of Washington State to visit my BFF, Katie.  We are planning on making a trip down to Shipwreck Beads, so I should be able to stock up on supplies.  We also plan on pampering ourselves with mani/pedis.  Then there is coffee, dinner, drinks… a whole wonderful weekend, just us girls.  Not to mention we will be doing some series, level 5, till our feet bleed and our legs ache shopping all around the Seattle area.  I’m uber excited!
