It's been over a year since I've been here and blogger has completely changed everything!

I kind of miss the old look. :(

Stay tuned.  My mind is whirling with ideas, I only have to find time to pursue them.

This Used To Be My Playground ~Madonna

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say

Don't look back
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask

No regrets
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there's hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You're not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday (the dream)
Those are words I'll never say (I'll never say)

This used to be my playground (used to be)
This used to be our pride and joy
This used to be the place we ran to
That no one in the world could dare destroy

[Short and movie versions only:]

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
I wish you were standing here with me

This used to be our playground (used to be)
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
The best things in life are always free
Wishing you were here with me

New Items Posted on Etsy

I am making the move from Artfire to Etsy. It is time consuming to say the least! I still have 22 items to move, and then maybe I can make some new things! Alas, I have more ideas than time. Here are a few examples of items recently moved:

My Jewelry

Beautiful necklace and earrings listed here. Chinese coins and Carnelian chip beads. Go check it out. ;)

Carnelian: Stabilizing stone with high energy. Stimulates creativity. Excellent for restoring vitality. Protects the dead on the journey to the afterlife. Protects against envy, rage, and resentment. Calms anger and replaces with love.

Look What I Did!

My sister found a shark's tooth at the beach this summer. She asked me to make it into a necklace for her husband's birthday. I wirewrapped the tooth and made a natural colored hemp necklace with twist knots. Bead closure. They both loved it! My first custom job. ;)

Taking orders now!

I can take orders for crafts here on blogger any time. All I need is a valid email address linked to Paypal account. The necklace below I am particularly proud of. It is 18" long with a toggle clasp. Made of tiger eye bead chips with a wire wrapped moonstone pendant. I may make one for me! It's $25, check out my Etsy page (link on sidebar) for more items!

Moving to Etsy

I am unhappy with Artfire. I know some who do well there, but I decided to work with Etsy now. There is a cute little widget on the sidebar.

Go buy something cute! ;)

I am not sure how to promote my online jewelry sales more. I do have some flyers I can put up around town, and when I get back to work at the school in the fall I can leave cards and flyers in the workroom maybe. It's just a little frustrating that I have stuff that hasn't sold even though it's been up for months.

I need to make more stuff. A lot more. If I had more volume of things, the likliness of something being purchased would rise. Also, I'm hoping by next spring to have enough, and to have sold enough online to go to the craft fair at the Dogwood Arts Festival. It just seems so far away, and I have gifts to make, and a Christmas Stocking for Brianna... I really need to get busy!

All these years

All these years and still I retrurn to the same place, the same friend I always counted on. When I'm down I think of you, when I'm lonely, again you. Sometimes I wish I'd never met you and other times I don't know what I would have done without you. Here but not here. Mine but never mine. A dream of what might have been, and nothing more...

One weekend only!

I feel a little stuck right now. I have started with the craft selling to earn extra money. It is hard starting. Everything is only online right now, and it's just not selling. I went pro last month because the first month is free, but if I don't start selling items, I'll have to drop back to basic. I have made some business cards and flyers so maybe that will get the ball rolling. I would like to go to flea markets or something like that, but I'm not sure how to start that. I actually have a few other things I could sell, things I bought to start my online business that didn't start. :/

I've tried the ebay thing, it doesn't work for me. It's very frustrating when you are doing the exact same thing as others, but for some reason it isn't working.

Ok, I've cleared the air a bit. Maybe that will help.

I think...

I would be inspired to make more jewelry, if more of it would sell.

Jewelry for Sale

I have just uploaded some new things to my Artfire. There is a link to my page on the sidebar. Two necklaces of completely different character! One has glass beads on silver plated wire hand linked together to make a delicate chain in which a fairy pendant dangles from.

The other is hand knotted hemp, with sparkly green and pink beads woven into it. This one is shorter, a choker. It has a large silver colored peace sign charm in the center with two small wooden beads on either side of it. Hippie Princess. ;)
