Where has the time gone??? I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! Well, let's catch up, shall we??
Here's some big news for Bonhomie Jewelry (well, I think it's big anyway.....) I've been working on new packaging! Previously, I used either an organza bag or a metal tin with a "Bonhomie Jewelry" sticker on the top of the tin and the jewelry was wrapped in green tissue paper. It was okay but I wanted something a bit more professional looking. So..........
I ordered a custom stamp from Babyjewels! I'm so happy I did! Cat is awesome to work with and her prices are UNBELIEVEABLE!!! My stamp is 2 1/2"x2 1/2" - it's so big!! (picture a happy dance here!!) Obviously, I knew the dimensions prior to placing my order but I really have no mental concept of size. She worked with me on the design - okay, she came up with the design - and I love it! I am ecstatic!!! I just ordered my boxes, zip lock bags and I've designed some earring/jewelry/business cards to fit in the boxes. Once I experiment with my ink color and all the 'pieces' arrive, I'll post a photo so you can all drool over my cool, new, custom stamp! (of course, you won't have to drool if you go get one for yourself!!)
Let's see, what else?? I've had a few preliminary conversations with a local soon-to-be-open shop and I'm very excited about the possibility of consigning with her. She's planning on featuring solely handcrafted items from local (i.e. in-state) artisans. She's got a good location and we've nothing similar in this area right how so I think she'll do well.
Hmmm...........oh! Also keeping me busy as of late (in addition to jewelry orders. YAY!) is a new client for my Virtual Assistant business! Referred by a friend/current client, it's a great fit!
Things are going very well over here.........we've found a church we like and God is opening doors for us. We're blessed :-)
