Messy Blog Hop

It's a Messy Workshop Blog Hop! B'Sue Boutiques, has coordinated this fun Blog hop where a bunch of us jewelry artists and show just how messy our workshops can be; it's your chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at where we make our artistic pieces by hopping from blog to blog and seeing the pictures, videos and stories we have shared. At the bottom is the list of all the participants with the link to their blog; simply click on the one below mine to hop to the next, and so on. Please feel free to leave comments on our blogs. My "workshop" is in the corner of my living room, my living room is more of a rectangle shape so there was some unused space at one end opposite the fireplace. Key word "was", it now has my work space. I have a pretty big corner desk, that soon I added shelves to one side, then I out grew that and added another shelving unit to the other side. I use to work on the coffee table, but it was hard to keep the dog out of my beads, so I added a table to my work space. My white kitchen table houses my homemade light box...hey it works! Please enjoy our messes!!!.

Beautiful Sunny Tuesday!

I have been working on many different aspects of my business. I have started my portfolio of pictures to take to home shows and working on the development of my Hostess benefits. I am also going to be making a few necklaces with tiles made by Marie, her pieces are beautiful and her shop is SkyeJewels on Etsy. I will post pics when they are finished with her site. I think I am going to try to take a few pics outside it is a beautiful sunny day. Enjoy your day and be creative!
