Don't Panic...I have everything under control!
So, even though I did quite a lot of business locally last week, I didn't have many Etsy orders. That really worked out well, because I don't know how I would have kept up with all of the things I had to do if it was a busy week in MY ETSY SHOP. It's funny how I always get worried when I don't have an EXCESSIVELY BUSY Etsy week. I just LOVE to see my Etsy sales tally go up, and if it doesn't move for a few days, I'm all bummed out! That is pretty much RIDICULOUS because when I sell to locals, I don't have to pay Etsy fees, Paypal fees, or worry about getting the jewelry ready for shipping. So I actually make more money with less work. And why am I unsatisfied? Clearly, I am more than a little nuts. But, there is something so exhilarating about watching the sales tally go up on your Etsy shop... right? Anyone with me? No? Okay, maybe it's just me :)

THE BIG THAW! My sister and I really have to bulk up on inventory, starting with making a larger selection of jewelry/gift boxes. I sold a lot of those in the past, and haven't replenished my supply, My mother also informs me that I need to make a lot more rings! Very true... I have only one ring listed at the moment! *Sheepish smile* That's not the only thing that I need to attend to...There is tagging all the items with prices and descriptions, figuring out my 8'x8' booth display, getting new business cards for Alee, and of course, figuring out what to wear (my other favorite pass time). Thankfully, I'm already way ahead on solving the what-to-wear dilemma, as I received my Sweet Sincerity logo-ed T-shirts in the mail last week! ALSO-Check out a GREAT blog post on THE BIG THAW blog all about Sweet Sincerity Jewelry! I was so excited when I saw this fantastic article! Thanks Aud (of littleeyedesigns), for writing such a wonderful article!

"Do not put containers that once contained stain, paint thinner, pickle, or liver of sulfur in your dishwasher with your regular dishes...it does NOT turn out well!"
But then again, you probably already knew that, unlike me. :)
And lastly, here are some more beautiful treasury collections that Sweet Sincerity had the pleasure of being chosen for, this past week.
