Overdue update...........

Before I begin with my past due update, take a look at my new banner!!! I'm SUPREMELY pleased with it. I've updated my Etsy shop - banner and avatar - and I think I made a good choice. What do you think? And speaking of my Etsy shop, don't forget: FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING thru December 18th!

Okay, so on to my update. I never reported on the Black Friday show! drum roll...................one sale. To my mother-in-law. lol!! Really, it's okay. I was a bit disappointed, yes, but I accomplished so much because of it that I believe it was worth it.

First of all, I redid my table display and I was overjoyed with how it turned out! I put the table on bed risers so everything was eye level, changed the color scheme from what I was using last year (beige - the jewelry just blended in to the table) and made all new displays (btw, instructions for these displays I found on Beth Millner's blog (and this one) - she is an AWESOME jewelry designer!! If you haven't seen her work, go look!!)

Second, and most importantly (as far as I'm concerned) preparing for the show motivated me to create 3 new collections of jewelry! I'm also very pleased with them and how my work is growing. I LOVE what I do!! I thank God that He's given me this talent and the means to do what I love!

I don't really have an update on the Housatonic Valley Association Silent Auction. It occurred on the 6th but I don't know how my pieces did :-( If I find out, I'll let you know!!
And here is my praise report for the day: I have holiday orders this year! Last year, I didn't see any increase in sales over the holiday but that's changed this year. It is so cool to think that something I've created may be on someone's wish list for a holiday gift! I really am blessed!

What a bummer about the show sales but it sounds like it was productive nonetheless. Your display looks great and I love the idea about building your own displays.

I think your table looks really nice! It is good that you did not let the low sales get you down...keep up the good work and I am sure the next sale will be better. Your jewelry is fab!
