Good MORNING!! It is my BIRTHDAY today!! I am so excited!! Nothing big is planned, but it is a special day…of course…and I’ll get lots of hugs from my kids this morning!! 🙂 That makes it one of the best days of the year! 🙂
Over the weekend I didn’t get to do much beading (with it being father’s day), but I did get a little!! Here is where the new project kicks off this morning….row 63 with 4,788 beads!! YEP, lots to go!! But just look at the colors already….LOVE IT!! Remember that you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos.
If you didn’t see it (and I forgot to do a blog post) here is the new listing from Friday…and today’s new listing. YEP, they both have DRAGONFLIES!! But yet they are TOTALLY different looks!! What do YOU think? Which do YOU like better?
I asked you all a question last week about how to ‘grow’ my company and increase my sales. I did get a few suggestions, but not much more that (amazing) encouragements!! I have made a decision…I am giving myself 1 year! Yep, 1 year!! For the next year I will be ‘pushing’ and ‘working’ as hard as I can to grow my business, but if I can’t make a substantial increase I will be closing up my shops and trying something else. I will still make jewelry and teach, but there will have to be some changes to what/how I do things. That all being said….help me grow! Yes, of course I would love for YOU (my steadfast fans) to purchase from me, but advice, shares and ‘spreading the word’ are what I would like even more!! Let me know if you have any suggestions….I am VERY open to try just about any ideas!!
With all that said, let me show you one of the creations that I marked down over the weekend…and it is REALLY marked down..51%!!
For now I’ll leave you with this thought;
You are unique, and if that is not fulfilled then something has been lost! ~Martha Graham
