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

I am back....

There is no way I haven't blogged in 5 months.  How can I possibly stay relevant?  I can't.

So what have I been doing.  I did the SFIGF and it was great, good new customers, faithful repeats and then of course my normal orders in between.  I just finished with that 2 weeks ago and was going to take "time off" but there is no such thing as time off when you own you...r own business.

So now I am planning for my next show.  Currently it will be POOL in Las Vegas at the Magic Show, but now I am wondering if I should to ATS at the same time, instead.  Oh what will be best.  The cost about the same....but who knows where the buyers will be. 

Trial and error can be very costly...and crazy.  Shows aren't easy, you sit there or stand, and try to stay in the moment.  Try not to get to out of the positive mode, but doing it for 4-5 days is a long time.  Some people are great at shows.  I am probably in the middle.

So what am I obsessed with right now??....new designs (that's always the case), but also what makes my line stand out.  I know that people will say oh well this one looks like yours, but usually I look at it and say...no that really doesn't.  But I am just thinking it all over.

Also trying to decide if I should open a 3rd shop, this one on Shopify.  But will need to get some help again.  I think. 

The one thing I do know, juggling it all is crazy!!  And sometimes the balls just drop to the floor.  But that's ok, I just pick them up again.  I promise not to wait another 5 months.
