August 30,2011

I am done with the jewelry that I am making as door prizes for the ladies night at my church.  It should be a great night. 
I am also trying to get some networking done and get my jewelry out there so that people can see and hopfuly want to buy it.  I work really hard on each piece and put my all in it everytime I make a piece.  I love each piece that I make and would love to keep every one of them for myself.  I put my heart and soul in everything that I do and every piece that I make.  As I sit down to start working on a piece I start with a color and then just start puting things out there.  It just comes together and when I see something that doesn't sit right I start over until it does.  Sometimes it turns out to be a mult. strand and that is not how it started.  It just depends on what I am doing and how many beads I have to work with.  I love what I do so very much.  I just hope that others love my creations as much as I do.

August 29, 2011

It is Monday night and things seem to be looking up.  I still have no sales but I am trying to put myself out there more and let people see my work. 
Yesterday I was working on some new ideas with wire and beads.  I really liked how it turned out.  I even wore it to church last night.  I am strating to try my had at some new things and am excited to see what is going to come of this new adventure.  I am always just wanting to tryin new things and just see what happens.  I do have something that I do that I love and makes a piece look more polished to me.  I do a loop of seed beads and put the crimp bead down from the loop and connect it to the end piece with that.  It gives it a better look and makes it look really good. 
I make things that I love and branching out to do things with colors I am not so found of.  That always makes things interresting.  I do love them once the piece is finished and I see that it all works together.  Wow what a change for me.  I am learning to love things that I didn't before. 
Tomorrow it is back to making and doing things to help my business.  Love the work I do and do the work I love.

August 27, 2011

As I am sitting here wondering what to write that might interrest anyone but me I am remembering  how I got started in all of this.  After deciding to strart in on this adventure and see where it takes me I begain to make lost of different kinds of necklaces, bracelets and earrings.  It has been so much fun to start making each item and see what the end result is going to be.  I love to go to the store find beads that I love and come home to put them together.  I have tried to make things in different colors and looks and I think I have achived that and now I am hoping to venture into some wire working and see where that leads me.  It is fun to start a new venture in somthing that you love.  The beading has been so much fun and I will keep doing it even with the wire work.  It has been so amazing to find somthing that I love doing and  make money doing it.  Being a mom is one of my fav. things in this world and this allows me to do that.
Today I have been working on some things for door prizes to a ladies gathering at my church.  I have some done with the holidays in mind and some that should just be fun. So I just need to finish those up in the next few days get myself well and back to the preschool for one more yr.  Good bye for now and have a blessed weekend.

August 26, 2011 Our very first time!!

I read some where that bloging can help my busness because people like to get to know the people that they are buying from.  So here we go.  I have now set up a store on Etsy and on Easyshop360 and am trying to sell the jewelry that I make.  Each piece is put togther by me am just comes to life right before me.  I love doing it and it is so much fun for me. 
So I will tell you how this all begain.  In May of 2010 I was shown how to bead and thought that looks easy and fun.  My mom several yrs before had given me all of her beads and I just put them under a bed in our home and left them there.  So after my little class I went home and pulled the out. Looked through them to see what all was in the box and I have been hooked ever since.  I first started making things for me and I do love jewelry so I made alot but there is only so much one can make for one's self and people kept telling me that I should sell it and I kept saying NO I am not going to do that.  But one day in Aug. of that same yr. as I am sitting here now writing this I knew I was supposed to do it God just spoke to my heart and said yes do this.  So I prayed about it and the announced to my husband that we are going into the jewelry business.  So We both started getting things together.  He more on the computer since he doesn't have the creative gene.  It has been a long process and now I am here doing this.  I will tell more about the in between later.  So I am now on the journey of my own business and trying to make it work.  I will be showing pictures of my things I have made that are forsale, telling you how I do it, about me, my family and I am sure many other things. 
For now this seems to be enough.  Now if I can just figure out how to do other things on this that would be great.  Have a wonderful weekend.
