Planning for 2009

So another year is over (where did it go?) and it's time to make some resolutions for 2009. Or is it? Last year I decided not to make any resolutions as I just break them by February and then beat myself up about being weak-willed. 
So this year I have decided to make resolutions about my jewellery work, not about getting healthier, giving up caffeine, denying myself chocolate, not getting stressed etc. etc. etc.

Here are my goals for 2009:

Get into the studio at least once a week to get creative with metal.
List something new on etsy every week. 
Promote my work by buying some advertising space.
Twitter often to keep my sanity!
Enjoy being creative and relish in the fact that I now have a wonderfully tidy and well set up studio (thanks Hubby!).

Hmmmm... check this post again in December 2009 to see if I gave up on my resolutions in February!

Happy New Year everyone. Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2009.

Jewellery added to my etsy shop

At last I finally got around to listing one piece of my huge inventory of jewellery. It's about time too. I spent the afternoon polishing, photographing and editing in readiness for more listings.
If you have a moment, drop me a comment to let me know what you think of my new stuff. You can find it my etsy store here ------------->
Hope you like it.

For those interested, I found a great site on ring sizes:

Just to make it difficult for us international sellers, ring sizes are different in the US, UK, Japan and Europe! So this is a useful tool for converting. I added this link to the listing of my Leaf ring to help buyers convert their size no matter where they are in the world. There is also a conversion for people to measure their ring size with a piece of string!

Christmas is over!

Well, here we are one day after Christmas. Very full after all the turkey and trimmings and now ready to get back to work to put some jewellery on my new etsy shop.
Getting more views on my etsy card shop now that I am promoting all over the place!
Have a great Boxing Day everyone.

Change to prices in my etsy shop

I just changed the prices on my card packs in my etsy shop. I have knocked $2 off my 8 packs of folded cards and $1 off the 5 postcard packs. Hope this price change brings in some sales for the New Year!
If I don't get a chance to blog tomorrow...wishing everyone who celebrates it a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Welcome to my new blog

Hi everyone,
Here's the first of (hopefully) many posts! Keep checking back here to see updates of new cards. Hopefully my jewellery line will be launched soon, so I will post photos as soon as I can.
