The trouble with being creative is all the “other” work that goes along with it. I have been working like crazy to get ready for some trunk shows(thanks C) I just keep adding pendants and earring and pins to a little round box and tell my self “okay ya got to put all that on cards” I may have to hire my kiddos again to card my jewelry. I really dislike that part of the process LOL.

So here is a peek at the box I have been adding to for a few weeks. What does not sell will slowly be added to my Etsy shop I am sure.


Over 2 weeks ago I had to cancel my trunk show because I got stomach flu- Oh that stinks!flutter2.jpg

It was to be the first one I have had since December so I was excited. It was post poned until this Thursday. I was more than delighted when I went to pick up my box of jewelry and over 50 pendants sold! Thank you JoAnne you re a blessing!

I call them Box Parties but Trunk Show? Box Party? Who cares what I call it. I especially like this group of ladies because they take the box and I leave it for the day- no work for me at all other than the Box Prep and store edit I do. I put over 100 items in my shop in edit plus the other 150 or so I had left in my party box. That gives me a nice healthy batch to give the ladies to look at. I constantly add items to these plastic flip top boxes, then when I get a call for this type of show I am off with plenty of stock all priced and named.

I think I will be writing a step by step on this sort of show so stay tuned.
