This has been a very bad day but I think it is going to be looking up.  Part was great and it has nothing to do with my business.  My life is very crazy like all of you that are reading this if anyone is I guess that is part of what makes it bad I don't think anyone is but if you are then thank you very much.  
Now is as good a time as any to tell you more about me and who I am.  I am just someone that loves her Lord, her family and making jewelry.  So I have many jobs and things that I have to do as we all do.  I am a preschool teacher 3 days a week for about 4 hrs. a day.  A full time mom and housewife and now teacher.  Today I started homeschooling my little one.  It is going to be interresting because he is 4 and still in pre-k.  But he wants to start kindergarden so as of today we are.  It really was alot of fun and I am looking forward to the rest of the yr. 
So jewelry making is not my primary job but I do love it so very much.  There are days and today was one of them that I just want to throw in the towel and I say Lord you got me into this so please what do I do and He shows me.  It is amazing everytime I am ready to quiet He says NO you are not.  I told you to do this and it is going to work.   So I keep pluging on.  My house some days looks well lets just say not good but my little one is more important at least I think so and we do eat 3 meals plus snacks everyday and wear clean clothes.  So I guess I am doing about as good as the next mom. 
So now you know a little more about me and what is most important to me my family.  So that is why I am doing this to help my family and that is very important to me.  So when you go over and decide you love one of my pieces as much as I do and you want to have it for your very own know that my heart and soul went into making it and love from my two best guys is what is is all about and for.  Thank you for your support and just for reading this.  Let me hear from you if you are out there just so I know I am not typing into space with no one listening.  Have a great week.

How do I measure success?  That is a very good questions.  I haven't been doing this very long so at times that seems like a hard question to answer.  But as I think about it it really isn't.  I have found something that I love to do and that I want to do.  When I sit donw to mae a piece and I put it together I want someone to buy it that will love it as much as I do.  I want to to want to wear it.  I don't make things that I don't like and I have reached outside my my box to create in try new things.  That is where I see success is in trying new things and reaching out beyond what I can do and see what happens.  I get such joy out of sitting down and just putting things together and seeing what it turns out to be.  I do what I love and I love what I do.  I just want to make money so that I can help my family and take a little stress off my husband.  It started because I was making more than I could  wear so I fugured I might as well see if I can sell it.

Sept. 6,2010

Once again I am sitting here trying to figure out what to write.  I am trying different ways to get my company out there and let people know who I am.  I know how much I love each piece that I make and I want someone to love it just as much and want to have it.  This week I am doing something that is a little harder.  I am making a set for me.  I am so much harder to make for than others.  Plus I am sewing a dress and that is waht it is going to go with.  I would pick material that has some crazy colors in it but it is going to be amazing.  When done with both I will get pictures and post them.  I have done this for others making a set to go with an outfit just not for myself yet.  I am excited about seeing what it is going to look like in the end. 

I am starting to work with wire and wire wraping.  So more pieces should be coming with wire.  So get ready to watch me grow in this area.  Here are some examples of my wire wrapping.  Let me know what you think.  Have a great week.

Sept. 4, 2011

So the temp. has cooled off enough to get outside so I can take some pictures of some new things and get more pictures of some other things.  I have been making some new things but getting the pictures is not always easy.  Inside they just don't turn out the way I want them so and it has been so hot that going out hasn't been a good option.  But now I can post my new pictures and show everyone the new things that I for them to purchase.

Starting back at the preschool this week for the last yr. Have a pre-k that I will be homeschooling in Kindergatern starting in Oct.  Plus my business so life is going to be very busy starting very soon.  I am looking forward to all the new things in my life and can't wait to get started with them.  I am going to try and figure out how to put pictures on my blog so we will see if I can do it.
