Getting stuff done

Yesterday was the day of getting stuff done.  I filled out insurance papers to renew my sons insurance, I got my FAFSA form filled in, hoping to really and truly start college in the fall.  I bought some supplies and got half of my orders made, finishing the rest today.  I cleaned and yeah.  My reward?  My boyfriend bought me a pet rat!  Well, it was a suprise and I had no idea he was going to buy me one.  He is a cutie.  Still debating on a name for him though.  Pictures to come soon.

Last week I got to see Hanson through a radio contest my mom won.  There were about 100 people there.  They played 4 songs, answered some questions, and we got free food.  It was pretty awesome.  Heres my groups picture.  I'm the one in the green Shirt, Taylor Hanson has his arm around me :)

I know, I know, its been a while since I posted.  This month started off awesome with sales and stuff, but declined.  I think thats my fault though, I quit working so hard for the past week or so.  But atleast I know, the harder I work, the better my sales!

This week I applied to college.  If all goes well, I'll start in fall!  I'm only going to community college, but its a big step, right?  I put undecided as my major, but I think I'll probably major in busness or management.  Not 100% sure yet though.

And this week I found out my most favorite band, Hanson was comming to town next week!  But the only way to go see them is win tickets from a radio station.  And guess what?!?!  MY MOM WON THE TICKETS!  So my mom and I are going to go see Hanson on Wensday March 23!!  I'm so excited, I really didn't think I was going to get to go.  That made my week for sure.

Today I revamped a necklace.

Heres the original description:

This was made with 1 mm waxed black hemp and .5 mm blue and .5 mm purple waxed hemp cord. This has 6 acrylic glow in the dark beads and a purple and blue glass lampword swirl in the middle.
This connects at the end with a hoop and a 7th acrylic glow in the dark bead :)
Measures about 18 inches.

Heres the new necklace:
I need to edit the pictures before I list it.  But this is made with 4 strands of 2mm hemp in the middle with waxed 1mm black hemp and waxed 1mm pastel hemp spiraling around the hemp, and the focal point in the middle.  Theres no glow in the dark beads on it, but it is A LOT stronger than the original!

What do you think?

Feeling Lazy

I feel like I've been getting lazier and lazier latley.  I don't know why.  Maybe its the rainy weather around here.  Although I have been going through stuff and packing, hoping to get to a resale shop soon so I can get rid of some stuff.  Need to make some extra money, as I plan on moving soon.

I made 3 embroidery bracelets today... light pink, purple and white.  I was going to list them, but I'm starting to think I'm going to make all my bracelets before I start to officially put my line of bracelets on etsy.  Although, I do have a few colors of them up at the moment here.

And even though I havent been listing much, I have been working on improving the look of my shop.  I have paint shop pro on my computer, so the pictures with the white backrounds I have been editing to actually make it a white backround, instead of shadows all around them.  They have been turning out really well and my bracelets have the appearance of popping off the page.

As always, I am open to suggestions.  Let me know if theres anything you'd like to see in my shop.
