I have been pretty busy lately with trying to branch out and sell my lampworking in other areas. It is a small step but it is still a lot of work. I have 3 new shops that I want to share with you. The first one I just got approved for today. You have to set up shop and list your items and then submit it to the head honchos for approval. I really like the looks of their site and think that with a little time it will be productive. This particular site I have to sell the end product and not just the beads, so I have listed pandora beads and will add a leather cord for those that don't own a pandora bracelet so they can wear them as a necklace. I have a pandora bracelet that I mostly use for the pics and I wear 2 or 3 of my beads on a silver chain. Maybe I will start making more jewelry to sell and list it there. We will see. Here is the link
I also have a shop here which I started a couple of weeks ago I think. I need to go there and do a little listing of new items. I'm not sure how long I will be here...just depends on if it gets more user friendly. The site is http://www.artfire.com/
Here is a shop that I am in that has a few listings. http://www.handmadefusion.com/ We will see how this one goes as well. http://www.handmadefusion.com/shop.php?user_id=100136&parent_id=1953
Let's see - then there is my web site http://www.wildsagelampwork.com/
and my Etsy store http://www.mycabincreations.etsy.com/
oh and my other Etsy store http://www.mycabincreationstoo.etsy.com/. This one needs some updating. I think I will relist some of the crystals that have expired and work harder on this as a destash shop. After Christmas....
I think I need someone to manage all of these little enterprises and take all the pictures and ship the beads and DO THE PAPERWORK!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I had all of my paperwork on the computer in Quicken done up to July I think it was and lost it allllllll... so now I am trying to get it all back in there for taxes. It really sucks if you ask me.. of course it would help if I had any CLUE whatsoever how Quicken worked. Or any desire to learn for that matter. I don't. Sigh...
So anyway on to other topics... I had my stepdaughter and granddaughter over on Saturday and we made Christmas cookies. It was a lot of fun.. so I will add a few pics and a link for more (here ya go mom). http://www.flickr.com/photos/wildsagelampwork/sets/72157610867966602/
Last but not least one year ago today I married a wonderful man on a beach in St. Thomas. Man I wish I was there now. Sigh. It has been a terrific year and I hope to have a thousand more just like it with him. :)
