Day 8 of 2013
Well it's back to business. I have 2 shops on the world wide web.
marcenebt99.etsy.com I make and sell jewelry
marcenzjewelsupplies.etsy.com this is where I sell supplies
My grandkids love to help me make jewelry and they have a lot of
necklaces and bracelets, as they should. I made Mother and Daughter
bracelets that match each other or were connected by color or charm. So
when I made the bracelet for My Bethy she had 2 different colors
because she has 2 daughters and each are unique and have their own
likes, I only say that because they are young and very close in age and
it's important to them to be individuals.
This is a sample of the jewelry I make .... this is what I put in my etsy shop
I also made the child's bracelet with the star charms for one of my granddaughters and she loved it.
Oh my, really it made me smile to hear her go on about it. It's all good when you realize the moment you become "THE BEST GRANDMA EVER" it's a moment you remember. I'm smiling now, I can again see Molly excited and wanting me to hurry and clasp it so she can go show Mommy. Yay for good memories.
I also make a couple specialty items and I have gotten good feedback on them.
Stethoscope Bracelets ... these are Personalized Stethoscope ID tags ... just pop off the ear pieces on your stethoscope and slide the O-rings
over and down then put the ear pieces back on and there you go. You
will always know which stethoscope is yours!! It is about 5 inches to 6
inches long. To fit across the center of your stethoscope.
And I make lanyards and sports team necklaces. I like to use glass pearls and make them long but I also make the less expensive shorter necklace with a bracelet in acrylic beads. Now from time to time I have also made the open ended necklaces that you attach your eye glasses to. These can also be made with a sports team name and in the team colors.
In my supplies shop I am selling most of my supplies plus the supplies I try to keep in stock.
Here's the story, you've read some of this before .... I blogged about Sara moving in with us just a few days ago.
♥ MY STORY - DESTASHING & CLEARING OUT!!
I am cleaning out the den (my craft room) because our middle daughter, son-in-law and their 2 children are moving in and we need the extra room!! She worries about us - she thinks we are getting old and she wants to take care of us and make us eat her food which she thinks is healthier.
So I am trying to move allllll of my supplies from the den into a corner in our bedroom, which just isn't going to work. Hanging shelves and doubling up on containers isn't going to be enough. I have way to much and I don't use most of it so I am going through my supplies and selling lots and lots.
Most of the supplies will be sold as lots or individual listings in my supplies shop on etsy ...
or counted and put into baggies for my mystery boxes that are also sold on etsy ...
or will be auctioned on www.tophatter.com
I will probably end up in the barn which means will have to make it warm for the winter and cool for the summer and very very critter proof. That will take time and funds so lets sell it all ... ok, most of it ..... well at least some of it.
Dec. 23, 2012 UPDATE -
Sara is ready to move in ...she says "get that building permit cause I am packing"
We are not ready yet but getting close.
♥ ♥ ♥
I will still make bracelets because I enjoy making bracelets. I will also keep some of the supplies to make the stethoscope bracelets. But I will have a lot more room in whichever room of the BARN I end up in.
talk to you tomorrow
Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
