Last week I had burning plans to create some space and organize my beading insanity work space. I could have sworn the cabinet that I talked about using was still sitting in the garage. I swear it was there a few weeks ago. It only took 5 minutes searching and my husband and I suddenly realizing that we gave it to my brother and his wife 6 months ago.
I’ve done that with small stuff, like a favorite worn-out sweater that I gave to Goodwill, but misplaced furniture is a first for me. We did end up finding a solution, but I’ll catch you up on that in a future post, after it’s in my hands and I can take pictures to share.
I did get to work on something this week that needed to get done for the ecommerce site. I worked on naming my jewelry. Yes, I named them. I had been throwing around the idea to use themes to describe the pieces. “Element Goddess” sounds much more enticing than “multistrand bead necklace with lampwork bead” – that stuff will be in the description.
What made the process fun was my son getting involved. The kid is very creative and when I said “Do you want to help me name my jewelry?” he was all in. Some very fun and funky names were thrown around, “Comet Trail” and “Emerald Fantasy” are just a few. Throw in an online thesaurus and we were on a roll. You’d be amazed (or maybe not) what comes out of a 14 year old boys head. We named all the pieces that are completed and will be photographed soon. Naming them will make keeping track of inventory so much more fun.
