Preparing For The Golden Globes and Oscars...Decisions, Decisions...

No, I'm not I do need to prepare 100 pieces of jewelry for each awards show, plus 10 pieces for the press. That's 240 pieces of jewelry. Handmade. By me. Oh Gosh.

I would love to make one of my more elaborate pieces, and make different pieces for each show, but let's face's easier for me to work assembly line style if I make the same piece for both. Time is of the essence, but I still want to put forth my best effort!

I decided to make in reality, that's 480 pieces of jewelry! (But who's counting?)

I've had a couple of different styles of earring cards designed for me in the past, but I don't want to use them.  I've outgrown them, and I want to design my own, and make them myself. I really want this to say handmade. Handmade, not amateur though.

This is what I came up with...and I'm sticking with it!
Yes, I signed all 240 of them:)  To be continued...

I know, I know...I haven't posted in a while...It's been insane, preparing jewelry for the Golden Globes and Academy Awards Swag Bags, keeping up with my two Etsy shops, trying to design two new websites for these shops, in addition to keeping up with family life. Needless to say, it's been a loooong time since I've had a manicure, or a haircut for that matter.

This is the time when I need to remind myself of the philosophy of personal coach, and author Cheryl Richardson...self- care is crucial. If mama ain't happy and healthy, neither will the business or the family.

So off I go to do yoga, and give myself a well needed mani/pedi:)
