Jewelry and Inspiration

What is the most fun about designing jewelry?  Playing!! I get the most from spending time playing, not producing, filling orders, or even...

January 2010

So I was committed to making this year better.....sound mind, body and soul. So far a lot is going "better" if you will. I started meditating, not just going into my head, but taking some silence, LOVE IT!! I got into a great store in San Diego called Pure Bliss, the owners are wonderfully delightful and the store is quite cute!! Current trends with all the things you want to keep!!

Today I am off to San Francisco in hopes of gaining another store, Artist-Exchange. I little different from what I normally go for, but we will see. Wish me luck!!

Next up to making the year better, finishing pieces for the San Francisco show. Two weeks and counting....where has time gone?

San Francisco International Gift Show

I am preparing for the show in February, and I am trying to put pieces together for the show, but you know when you must do something it makes it even harder to do it. So I go home everyday with every intention of working on a piece, and then guess what, the cats need attention, dinner needs to be cooked, I got a new magazine in the mail, the phone rings, my husband is home, we go for a walk, we talk, we do anything other than make jewelry......now what do they call that???

PROCRASTINATION....what is a girl to do!!

Do you ever wonder if anyone is reading your blog? I do. All the time, I don't even think my own husband reads my blog. Maybe I need to add some new stuff to it. Ok, let's see, what is exciting.....

I am currently watching college bowl games, so not exciting, but enjoyable (at least from my perspective). I just finished the new "W" magazine, it was good, Jennifer Gardner is so cute and entertaining at the same time. There was a great article on a Taiwanese woman who went to school in NY and is 35 and her jewelry designs are amazing!!

Finished buying supplies for the San Francisco Gift Show, that is good. Oh and I had a great conversation with a few friends the other night who never enter the monthly giveaway, what is up with that. They promised they would from now on....I guess I should actually put up January's new piece!!!

December Winner!!

Jennifer at cspmom is our winner for december. She will receive these delightful hoop earrings and we hope she loves them!! Don't forget to enter our January giveaway, we should have the design available within the next few days.

Happy 2010!!

I have been looking forward to this day!! 1/1/2010...I never thought it would come. 2009 was such a hard year, a learning year, and unfortunately a year of sorrow for me. The loss of my father was by far the hardest thing I have ever dealt with. I miss him every day, but 2009 became a horrible year as soon as he was gone!!

With the new year, comes new beginnings, including my resolutions....1. to be a better wife 2. to be a better counselor (my full time job) and 3. to actually work at my jewelry business. Now my husband says that number 1 and 2 are a waste of time b/c I already do a good job there, that I really should focus on number 3. Well I am going to focus on all of them, maybe at different focus levels though.

So for the new year, we have new designs as always, but we have a new venture. We are going to be at the San Francisco International Gift Show, Feb 6 - 9 Booth #939, now I am not going to say that I am not frightened by what may or may not happen. But I will say, I have so much to do, including getting going on creating some inventory. My goal.....to get 3 boutique stores in San Francisco....how I will do that...by showing my delightful, one of a kind designs. Mission accomplished? We will see.

Any suggestions out there would be oh so helpful......but if not, I will figure it out.

December Giveaway winner will be announced shortly, and yes, we will still do a giveaway in January, so stay tuned. And if you haven't noticed, we are no longer selling on our website. You will need to visit www.1000markets.com and search "KKPW Designs" to purchase my designs. I am in the cost effective mode, or you can always contact me directly on our site through "Contact Us"....well tata for now...Wish me luck and Happy New Year!!
