Rants and Raves

I didn't think I would blog today, or should I say, have to time or topic to blog about, but I do.
First of all, I went for a recheck on my foot Monday, they gave me another contraption to wear, which hurts my foot more, didn't do the ultrasound that I was suppose to have last week and want me to go to physical therapy. I wonder if our insurance company was charged for the ultrasound. They seem to be overwhelmed with patients and work at this practice. Not sure what I'll do.

I made 4 more pairs of earrings. No photos done yet. One of these pairs will be going into my Etsy shop. They are cute petite Hill Tribe silver earrings. Very dainty! I'm trying to make more stuff for the salon that wants me to bring in earrings, and trying to have enough items for shows that I'm doing. Next weekend I'll be doing a 2 day indoor event that I'm really looking forward to doing.

This morning went to the post office thinking that I only had to mail one package and to my great surprise I sold 2 of my new copper bracelets from my "Ancient World" series! Finally, sales in my Etsy shop! I think things will be turning around for all of us sellers and artisans soon!

These sold:

So I see a buying trend or should I say a spending trend; for me and my shop anyway. I'm getting an idea about how much money folks are willing to spend on jewelry. And I'm kind of feeling stuck because of certain retail situations/perspectives. Which makes it difficult for me as a designer of hand crafted original jewelry pieces. Without going into details or naming names, I feel a resentment building and have to put much thought (and prayer) into possibly making a decision. But, I would like to get a few more shows under my belt before doing anything else. Not sure if I'm making any sense or not; to a few of you like jewelry artists, you may understand.
I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, over-committed to too many groups, and way too much email communication. I'm finding it difficult to do things I enjoy like reading. I want to enjoy my life, everyday.

Congratulations on the sales Cindy! I get you about over commiting. I want to bugger out of this show I have scheduled, but I won't. I just need to get things going. Go read a book!
