Yesterday I finally made my trip to the craft store to buy the materials for my Christmas ornaments. Of course I became sidetracked and spent most of my time looking at the beads instead. So, besides the Christmas ornaments I am planning on making a bunch of new bracelets, which I'm going to see if I can put out for sale at the hair salon I go to. This will be the first time I've done something like this, but for me it is so hard to sell things online, so it's worth a try. And I know I said my next project was going to be the Christmas ornaments, but I couldn't resist working on a new bracelet first, using these pretty dangly beads!
Speaking of sales, my Etsy shop is stuck at the unlucky number of 13 sales. I very much appreciate these sales of course, but I don't really like the number 13. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe my prices are a bit too high. I try to price my stuff according to both materials, and how much work went into creating whatever it may be. This will be another thing I will be taking a closer look at soon. My original plan was to sell enough of my creations so that I could stay home, and have an income doing something I love.
Well I'm off to work on my new bracelet. I'll share photos when it is complete. I've already strung and restrung it about 10 times, but it isn't quite right yet!
Have a Fantastic Friday!

This is so strange, to be blogging in the evening. I usually blog most every morning, but I haven't been up to it lately. I guess everything goes in phases, blogging included, right?
My latest project was to try to list a few things on eBay to sell. I'm not too good with eBay, but I try. The last time I attempted to bid on something it didn't work like I thought. I bid on a letter set for my Cuttlebug machine, and I ended up winning because I somehow WAY overbid everyone else. I don't even know why eBay would let someone do that! Luckily the woman I purchased from was so understanding she gave me a free gift. After that incident I didn't go on eBay for a long time.
Anyways, I still haven't made it to the craft store to purchase materials to make my super cool Christmas ornaments, but I need to soon! I can't wait to share these and see what people think.
Have a good night :)
