Its been a while that I have posted a blog. I have been busy with work, children, husband with a bad back. You know life. I haven't had a minute to myself for the longest time. I am a zombie during the day and an insomniac at night. So frustrating.
I have been making my jewelry and other little projects. I also added myself on Yardsellr so lets see if this will work for me. I'm trying to get enough exposer to sell my jewelry and other pieces I make. I get allot of positive comments but no purchases. UGH...What to do? But I'm taking it in stride. I hope it comes or I'm left with a whole lot of jewelry. I wouldn't have to go out and buy anything new.
This has been a crazy summer. One day its hot the other is cold, humid or wet here in NY. But I must say I am glad my son is out of Pre-K and will start kindergarden in the fall. YAY...I thought this day would never come. I think, no scratch that.........I know that when he starts school I will go out an buy a box of chocolates and lay in my recliner watching my programs in peace and overdose on my sweets without someone leering over my shoulder...I'm counting the days. All kidding aside though. My little man is a sweet, cute & good guy. He is right there when I need him and I wish I could give him the moon. I love him. He gives me the courage that I need.
One afternoon I decided to string a wooden bead to see how it came out...I think I did pretty well for my first time...
I had this larger green lampwork bead I got in one of these misc. bead bags and too the longest time to figure out what to do. So I decided to make it out of a pocketbook charm just to add a little extra bling. I think its cute and will be doing more of these projects.
So I was sitting on my sofa and was thinking what can I do with some extra ribbon I have. So I decided to make barrettes out of them just for the hell of it. Now all I have to do is attach it to a clip or a barrette.
I have been a bit distracted with work, my kids, my health, struggling to sell my jewelry and it seems its all going no where. I take 2 steps forward then fall 3 back. Its frustrating and I get so angry at the world.
I am such a dreamer. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I image being this great Artist having my own little shop overlooking an ocean side tourist town. Welcoming & entertaining people from all over the world. Taking the time to know them and treat them with the Ute most courtesy. Close down for a break in the day. Make lunch for my love ones. Then after sipping tea waiting for the evening crowd to show up and ponder over my jewelry I created. But that is just a dream. I'm a 37 year old women with a family struggling to buy diapers for my daughter and have time for my son and in between that squeeze some time for work.
I entered a new store on Zibbet. I heard it from another artist in passing. So I looked in to it and decided to apply and create a store for AnnaBella Hand Made. As I'm adding product in my little shop I wonder. Do people really look at the jewelry I make?why cant they leave a comment so I would know that they stopped by. It can be really annoying when I think like that. And I pray "Please Lord let some one atleast look at my stuff I make. And Lord its OK to send customers my way to buy something, AMEN.
This is my Zibbet Shop...Please stop by and take a look. http://www.zibbet.com/AnnaBellaHandMade
