Jewelry, Seer, Photography, Drawing, Knitting, Creativity baby!
You welcomed my jewelry with open arms yesterday. Thank you all so much. I really loved it. I know that you can spend your money buying any kind of jewelry and appreciate that you want to wear my designs.
I realize that I need to provide my customers with a place to shop for more of hija4 designs using your credit cards. So I’ve redesigned my old shop on Etsy. I’ve completed the info and appearance, payment, shipping, taxes, policies and about me pages.
Women have their very own style and taste. What one woman turns her nose up at another one may rant and rave over. I create jewelry with me in mind. Would I wear it and where would I wear it, office, home, weekend, evening, party, holiday etc?
After I create a few pieces I get anxious to share and tease so with the iphone I’ll quickly take a few shots. Next, I’ll send them in a text to customers, stating Buy Now!
Where do you show off your creativity? I have this blog, a facebook page. I had a website but had no traffic.
I need a marketing plan. Do I take time to post my jewelry designs on Etsy, Ebay, here?
Do I depend on word of mouth?
Pinterest is another option. Where do you advertise?
Same designs different photos. Purple love. It’s an original design and one of a kind. Send me your email address if you want to be first to get a sneak peak.
My husband bought me a roll of canvas over a year ago because I wanted to paint on it. I’d never painted on a large canvas and I’m not a painter. But I’m a wanna be Painter.
One Saturday morning it was the perfect weather to paint outside. I thought where is that canvas? Found it! So I laid it out on the dining room table and cut myself a uneven piece.
I started to paint on one of tables outside but realize my back wouldn’t last to long bending over. So I hung the canvas under the patio cover.
I was so excited that I was actually going to paint, but didn’t have any clue what it was that I wanted to Paint. My hand just does it when I’m painting on my ipad. So it was also with the brush in my hand on this canvas.
The sun was beginning to beat down on me and so I went inside to get my hat. I eventually turned the canvas around and stood under the patio cover. I love the warm weather but I don’t like baking in the sun.
My very first Scroll, what do you think of it? I hang it outside when I’m in the backyard to admire it. But when I’m in the house I have it on a wall in the hall way.
I’m looking forward to making more scrolls. When the sun is out and I’m not busy.
Ok I’ve had a jewelry website for a few years and got very few sales from it. Was it my designs or was it the design of my website?
I’ll really never know why. I kind of think it was the check out process. I may try Etsy, my Facebook page or just here on my blog. I haven’t really decided where to sell. In the mean time, I’d like to know do you sell your creations, photography? Where?
A week ago March 10, 2013 my Mom took her last breath. My husband, my sister, my nephew, his son and me were with her.
I am over the numbness and I’m grieving.
She speaks to me with her spirit voice (thoughts in my 3rd eye). I never had anyone so close to me cross over before. Although, my Father died when I was 3. Perhaps I’ve always felt him and never knew it. I feel my Mother all around me especially in my car while I’m driving to work in the mornings.
The Saturday before she passed I went to get my camera. Her grandchildren (some) came over to visit her. She really enjoyed her day. I took lots of pictures. But for right now I’m keeping them private. For the last 2 years I would take a picture of her and me, thinking this could be the last one of the two of us. I have that picture now. It brings tears to my eyes.
Her Spirit is gentle, warm and Oh so loving. She tells me not to cry. I can’t help it. I miss her so much.
It will take some time to get use to BEING with her spiritually.
Her memorial will be held next Saturday at Connolly and Taylor, Martinez,CA at 11am, March 23rd.
I started a journal of my Mom’s journey from the day she had a stroke to today. I would write in it when ever I was moved too. Now as she is getting weaker I wish I would have written in it everyday.
One day while she was in the Rehab center trying to recover from being paralyzed on the left side of her body I asked her a bunch of questions?
What’s your favorite flower? She replied Daisy.
Today is International Women’s day. I am strong because My Mom is strong.
I am honored to be her daughter.
