Time Evaporates

Time: like water in the desert, I can actually see it disappearing.

I started up my ArtFire shop with every intention of filling it with all the pieces I've made (and hoarded) but as I have come to see, running a used bookstore full time has placed some serious constraints on me.  When I listed things elsewhere, it was when I had the luxury of large chunks of time to myself.  Things change and I'm still adapting to those changes.

I've managed to inventory the pieces I want to list, now it's just a matter of taking new photos for some of them and writing their descriptions.  What should only take a few hours has suddenly become a monumental undertaking that has to be worked into an already over-full schedule.  

I want to have all my current inventory listed by the end of May.  It could happen.  I have never been one to deny the possibility of miracles.
Here's what I've made recently:
I've been working on a series of mookaite coin bangles, as well, so of course there will be more.  Just later.


Super Chunkies

I love chunky bracelets.  I love gemstones.  Instead of working on the inventory, I'm happily playing with beads.

More later.  Why not?


Making a List, Rewriting it Twice

Getting all my pieces together to list in three places is proving to be a lot more difficult than I imagined. 
I've been going about things all cattywampus to this point.  I need a few more levels of organization.

I need to do a full inventory of all finished work, then all destash items.  I need to find which items need to be photographed (or re-photographed), described, and/or priced.  Then I can list everything on Artfire and Storenvy.  At my current rate of progress, this should take me at least a month.
But first, let's make things pretty.  I've given the ol' blog a facelift.  Let me know what you think of it.

Oh, and I have about a dozen projects laid out.

More later, when there's time (or I need to avoid doing anything productive).
