The Chime Collection

Anyone who knows me, know that I love hoops. They can come big, small, beaded, huge, you name it I love it. So, when I started making jewelry, I defiantly made sure that hoops was on the list of things to learned how to make.

When I'm done making the pieces, I can usuallycome up a name for them, either it is something self explanatory or it is a feeling I get from looking at it. Anyone who is an artist, knows that sometimes you can get a block, so I will ask a fellow Etsian (via Twitter) for a name that they think would best describe the piece. They have come up with some beautiful names.

I am really loving this collection, it is challenging me to be more open to how certain beads, colors, textures, can fit together. I want to push it a lot further.

This Collection is an expanding one, so expect more listings within the next couple of days.

I hope you like it.

Facebook Fan Pages!!!

Hi guys,
long time no see.

If you frequent the forums, then hopefully you know that I started a Facebook Fan Drive thread. If you do have a fan page, you know that in order to get your store's custom URL, you need to have at least 100 fans. I don't know about you, but I am sick of the long URL's that comes with the fan pages, they are pretty hard to remember.

The thread has been a success for several people, including myself, with 68 pages and counting. All you have to do is,  link your fan page and then go though the thread to fan others. The only hard part now, is going through 68 pages, it may seem like a lot, but it will pay off in the end.

Another good way to get fans, is to get your fan page badge and put it on your blog or website. (Look to the right to see how yours will look. )

I hope this was helpful.
Peace out

Stop the Spam

I have been active on twitter for a couple of months. I like interacting with other sellers, friends, etc. 

However, I have noticed that you have some people who will spam the hell out of you with their ads, from their Etsy shops, to their family members businesses, websites, etc. Don't get me wrong I have sent out tweets talking about items that I just listed to my shop or recent blog posts (lack there of), but that is only when I just listed the items or made the post, I don't twitter about it all day, everyday.

Some people take twittering their business to the extreme, with every single tweet being about their recently listed items, recently renewed items, ideas about how to sell more items, etc.  If you go to their homepage, they reply to no one, because they are twittering about their business. They appear to have no interest in other people, which defeats the purpose of Twitter.

You need to switch it up a bit, respond to people, send out random info about yourself, have fun with it. Be a human, not a business twittering robot.

Rant over.

I so want another job...

..but I know that finding a job right now would be very difficult to do. I like the people that I work for but, I am ready to have a job in my desired career field. You see, I work at a restaurant and sometimes you will have those customers that really piss you off and mess up your whole day. I should be use to it though, since all the jobs I've had has dealt with customers.

The fact that I am not working in the field I want to be in, has been really hard to deal with, to the point were I have been really bitchy to everyone and no one wants to be around me (yes it is that bad). I am working on changing my attitude and doing something that makes me happy.

Well, enough of my sad pathetic story.
