I now have a total of 20 followers!  Welcome everyone who has started to follow me recently!

Well today I havent made anything new.  I dont think I'll make much new stuff on days that I work my real job.  My job at Hardees is fun, yet stressful.  I swear, if your not going to listen to your manager and back talk them, what the point of coming into work?  Why work there?  I dont know.  But when I told this girl to do stuff, she just kept telling me no.  Yes, she is older than me.  Yes, she use to be a shift leader also, but shes not anymore and I am her manager.  LISTEN TO ME!  And dont boss me around, I know what I am doing.

I have made like 5 new bracelets, but I dont think I will list them until sometime next month.  They are like fall themed, so I will list them right before fall starts.  I have finally made 2 sales, well, one hasnt paid yet.  So hopefully they pay soon.  I have also made a trade.  I am sending her dragon charms in return for wood beads.

My back hurts, so bad.  I have been so sore latley.  I dont know why.  Well, I kind of have an idea, but I don't know.

All I know is I need to clear out my room.  Get rid of a lot of stuff, make some money, not aquire more stuff, and move into my own place.  Where I can have my own room, and blake can have his own room, and be away from these crazy people who are suposed to be my parents.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!  I dont know how much I will be posting throughout it.

Happy Thursday everyone!

So its Thursday, or well, My friday.  I get to work 11 hour shifts for the next 3 days and then a 7 hour shift on Monday.  Wooo.  Although, I like getting off work at 11 am on Mondays, it give me the whole day to do whatever, really.

I think I need to make myself a schedule.  Becasue right now is Chaos.  Haha.

I got my Glass Lampwork Pendants in the mail today!  Wooo!  I have some good ideas for a few of them, a few I'm kind of lost right now but I will figure it out.  I made a bracelet that is pumpkin themed that I will put up at the end of september.  Its almost finished, but I want a pumpkin bead or something to put through the loop instead of just connecting a metal clasp like I usually do.  I'm thinking about ending my bracelets with beads from now on, or atleast when I run out of my clasps.

I'm going to be listing some beads online that I dont use anymore.  Some glass beads and some of those abc beads.  Hopefully they sell so I can make a couple of dollars.

Other than that, Blake had a speach therapy appointment again today.  We have 2 diffrent therapists come 2 times a week to our house.  This only started last week so theres not improvement yet, but I always tell Blake that people are coming to play with him, becasue thats what they mostly doo, they play.

And I thought I would share my work space with you all.  Its only my livingroom.  And I took a picture of my room, once I get it cleaned and stuff, then I might make that my work space until I move.  Which will hopefully be the end of this year to the middle of next year.  I'm ready to be away from my parents!

So heres the pictures.  I will do after pictures of my room once its all done!  Have a good day guys!

Parents livingroom where I make all my bracelets.  Blake is standing on the couch.

Where I sit on etsy half the day.  And yes, That cat (Buddy) lays there a lot.

My room needs cleaned, and I need to make it my awesome work space.
BTW, That is a mouse cage on the floor.  My mice's names are Peppy and Belle.

My dresser drawer where I keep all my suppies.  What a mess!!!

Yeah, so in debt.

My store has made me so in debt so far, and its only been open 14 days!  I bought some more hemp today, and with that my total debt is almost $300!!!  I didnt want to go over 200, but then I found some more money I spent and didnt add it up.  So yeah.  I'm thinking about clearing our some of my old beads and selling them on etsy, still trying to sell all those charms.  And hopefully get some bracelets sold.  When all thats said and done, and I reach $150 made, I might buy some more supplies, depending on what I have left.  Hopefully August will be a better month.

I made a really pretty necklace earlier, but it was hard.  Blake and my cats kept trying to eat the string.  And then it turned out too short.  It wont even fit around my neck, and I have a small neck.  So I will remake it when Blake naps or goes to bed for the night.  It is a pretty awesome necklace though.  Hopefully it will sell fast and find a good home.

I have 17 followers at the moment.  Hopefully I'm not too boreing and scaring everyone away.  But I think once I hit 50 followers I will promote someone else's blog and store.  100 followers I will possibly have a give away.

I dont know why

But blogspot is kind of complicated to me.  Random, yes.  I like Livejournal and Xanga better.  But I will give this a few more chances since this is what most people on ETSY use.

So yesterday I took Blake to get a hair cut.  He's got a mohawk.  And not a fohawk.  He's got a MOHAWK!  My 2 year old is the coolest.

His speach therapy appointment was today.  Hepayed more attention this time than last week.  And hes got another appointment Thursday.  It will be interesting.  Hopefully he will start to talk soon.

But other than that I got some new beads in the mail today.  Anyone selling any really awesome Halloween beads?  Let me know if you are.  I posted one new item today.  I just used twice the hemp strands to make the bracelet.  I think it turned out pretty cool.  So go check it out.

And are sales going to pick up soon?  I went to my limit on supplies.  $200.  I dont to spend any more until I make atleast $100.  I dont want to put myself in hard core debt.  Although I've only had my shop open 12 days.  But I compare it to similar shops, and I feel like maybe I'm not advertising enough?  But I feel like I'm doing a lot.  Oh well.

Maybe once I make up my supplies limit then I can buy me a new phone.  Becasue Blake broke mine.  But this almost seems liberating, not having a cell phone.  Maybe it will help me get back to reality.

Have a good day guys.

My cat Frankie tries to steal my cheese sticks everytime I eat them.  But why?  I mean, hes not going to EAT them.  Oh no, everytime I give this cat food, he plays with it like it s a play toy.  Crazy cat.

But I love him.

My mice, on the other hand, never try to steal my food.  Thats why they get a jewelry store named after them.  Shout out, Peppy and Belle!

Just another day...

So Work was interesting today.  Coworkers got into an argument, I thought there were going to be fists thrown.  I tried to stop it, but I was scared to get in the middle, in fear of getting hurt. 

all I want to know is seriously, why cant people just get along?

Why cant people respect their managers?

And why fight over who is going to fill the ice?

And yes, you read that right.  They were fighting over who was going to fill ice in the dining room!!

I'm glad i'm home now.  Just hanging out with my son, and maybe make a bracelet or 2.  I'm really just waiting for new beads to come in the mail before I start to make stuff.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Some of my stuff

Buy Handmade

So here is some of my stuff...

Heres a couple of bracelets I have made. I have 25 things for sale in my etsy shop. Go check it out!

So here is some of my stuff...

My first attempt at the blogging world.

Well hello everyone. This is my first blog, I'm not exactly sure what to do with it yet. I've had live journal and xango before, but never used them for anything other than personal use. And here, I want to try to sell my hand made stuff.
So to introduce myself, my name is Lacy, I'm a single mother to an amazing son, and a manager at a fast food resturante. I havent been to college yet, mostly becasue I didnt know what I wanted to do. All my life I wanted to be a writer. I still do. I have written a few books and many poems and stories. But it just didnt seem right to go to school for that.
Latley I've had an interest in making bracelets. I love it. I found etsy and I'm hooked. So I think I want to try to make and sell bracelets for a living. Dont laugh yet. Through making bracelets, I have decided I want to go to school for business and try to work for myself. If I cant do that, well with a business degree I can pretty much do anything, right?
I've been using twitter and facebook to try and promote my etsy shop. Not one sale yet! Hopefully I will get the sales soon.
I occasionally want to feature a blog. Maybe once a month? I'll just have to see how it goes.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
