Checking In


Well my hands are blistered. I'm sleepy!
And I don't have a ton of inventory.
But it's the best inventory I've ever made.

I'm so excited!!

Everything is still raw, but I'll be hand finishing and stone setting over the next couple of days.
Then it will be finalizing my (petite) display and tying up any loose ends.
I'll post photos before Saturday.

In all honesty, I don't think much will sell.
Seems women around here prefer small, simple jewelry.
(I shudder at the thought.)
But this has been a swift kick in the britches to get me in serious production mode.
So even if the show is slow, the Etsy shop won't look quite so pitiful!

I'm off to take a quick snooze before resuming work.

{{Note to self:
Need to go to the market. Running low on coffee and Band-Aids.}}

Hope you all are well!
I have missed you and the blog terribly.
Cannot wait to resume regular postings next week.

Have a lovely Tuesday!
