It has been a very busy year…. a lot of changes… but as with changes, if you relax and flow with it, they will change you, enhance you, and bring you new insights. A better part of this year was spent studying for and earning my certification as a Project Manager (PMP). Now I am getting back into the groove of my creative pursuits and preparing for upcoming shows.

Paw-don Me Miss But Wolf You Love Me

I closed the store in Richmond Heights in favor of an online selling venue. Although I miss the people and the beautiful location, I am now the proud owner of 3 Etsy shops… I’ve asked other sellers… “How can you keep up with more than one shop?”. Well, now I know that you can keep up with multiple shops. Les Trois Fleurs is still the first born and seems to be evolving into my boutique shop. Here is a recent design that was created for the release of “Breaking Dawn”.

Lapis Pyrite Buddha Necklace

Diviniteez! was started as my “energy shop” and features natural stones, chakra bracelets, and energy jewelry. Everything listed in this shop has been energized with my years of experience as an energy worker, clearance technologist, and reiki master.

Trunk Sale Beads

Then I needed an outlet for the inventory from the store. I also had accumulated a lot of jewelry making supplies that I was not sure I would use. As you grow your skills in a particular craft,  your style evolves and your taste in materials evolves with it. So Trunk Sale was born and it is rapidly growing into the treasury of finds it was intended to be. Trunk Sale offers beads, tools, other crafting supplies, and vintage items.

One of my goals this year was also to extend my network beyond the Cleveland area. I am now a member of numerous teams on Etsy, recently curated an Etsy BNR for the first time, and started selling internationally a few months ago.

Kind hearted Etsians are donating proceeds from the sale of their wonderful artwork to support charitable organizations involved with the Japan Tsunami recovery effort. Buy something beautiful and support the tremendous need for help in Japan.  Here is an Etsy treasury of a very small portion of these artists… to find other Etsy sellers who are supporting this effort, enter “japan”, or “japan relief”, or “tsunami relief” into the search box on the Etsy home page.

Open Your Hearts to Japan Etsy Treasury.

Here are some additional treasuries that I found all supporting the Japan relief effort:

See the comments to my last “Photos-R-Us” post for the feedback from Mariano Pastor. You can view all his articles and related posts at www.handmadeology.com.  This was great feedback so with better lighting I was able to make a second round of shots  using the tissue paper on the window and a tripod.

Shot with Aqua Background Shot taken on beige backgroundI tried several different backgrounds and  the results were much better. This first shot is one with an aqua background. I wasn’t sure whether the apatite beads would be lost with a near-matching background and they still stood out. It’s not my favorite but it is an improvement over the previous shots.

The second one is on a beige background. It still picked up the aqua color of the apatite stones. The color must be reflected off the foil.

Shot taken with brown backgroundThe third shot, my favorite, is on a brown background with printing on it. I was reluctant to use this paper for a background because I thought that the jewelry piece would “fade out” against this background. I was wrong… happily wrong.  It seemed to really complement the jewelry and made it stand out.  I have been resisting using my tripod because the resulting photos were very blurry. With some practice I worked out the bug and learned to maneuver it with more ease and this really sharpened the quality of the photographs.

If you are wanting to improve your photography skills, I highly recommend that you visit www.handmadeology.com and work with some of the photography suggestions.

Have a great weekend … and stay warm if you are local to Cleveland. Let’s all send lots of prayers  and love to our fellow humankind in Japan!
