A Good Start.

It's Friday morning and I've just finished all of my housework. 
Typically I went and put on Summers washing and it started to rain. 

It's been terribly hot here the last 3 days and just yesterday the heat started to dissipate and we got a bit of relief and today it's not too bad again. So I haven't really gotten to the bench - except to finish things off and photograph them ready to list in my shop:

I think I'm getting a bit sick of seeing the blue box in my background lol.....
It's lovely, but I think it's a bit overpowering to have in every single picture....I may have to start putting pictures like the 2 above in as the first picture of my listing, just to keep it looking different?? I dunno haha.

I've only sold 1 thing in the last month and it's getting hard for me to be upbeat about making things. I really really want to keep making things, but I don't know if I am prepared to have sales anymore to get sales. It's hard. I keep getting faves for my shop and items and I get added to circles and sometimes I am in treasuries. If I'm honest, I don't really promote my work. I guess that's something I will have to work on this year. And I really should be spreading the love on Etsy with others more, by making my own treasuries and promoting others work - but it's just so time consuming. I hope things pick up soon :(

Well the hubby has just arrived home, so I will leave it here.
I hope you've all had a great month so far!
Em ♥

Em I know exactly how you feel. I'm not sure how to promote my work to tell you the truth, blog, Facebook, twitter, is it really worth it? I've come to the conclusion that yeah it probably is, but... I just can't bring myself to do it all. I have a little one and I would rather work a few hours in the studio and hang out with her than do all that. Some day, we will be discovered b/c we do good work and that should be enough ;)

Your work is beautiful Em! My girls are 7 and 10 now and I still don't have a lot of time but I have I have a lot more than when they were little ones. It's hard to be noticed in the sea of jewellery on Etsy, I really hope things pick up in your shop soon. xx
