Just a quickie ...

... because I haven't updated in, like, forever!

My page rank rose back to a 3! Woo hoo!

Been super busy, which is why I haven't updated. Jewelry business is not paying the bills so I got a part-time, flexible "day" job to help make the ends meet. So I'm back to dabbling in bookkeeping which has always been my forte. I like working with numbers. Clear, concise, honest ... well, in the hands of an honest person, that is.

I'll still be working the jewelry business, but now I can relax a bit. Not getting enough to make the ends meet was making me a tad uptight. Uptightness stifles creativity. Juices are flowing better now.

My next post will be about using Twitterfeed. And I'll give some much deserved link luv to all my commentators from the prior post.

Everyone be safe!

Hello stranger!

Your blog is a beautiful as ever...and I know exactly what you mean about us starving jewelry artists...though you are ahead of the curve in your talent.

I was thinking, you belong to two teams is that right?

I am now hosting my own Blog Talk Radio Show and would love to have your team(s) leader(s) on to interview. It is called Artisan Teams & Groups, Saturdays 1-2:30 p.m. EST.

If interested, my email address is:

Merry Christmas...

Congratulations on the day job! A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! It's definitely easier to create when we're not worried about how we're paying the bills. :-D

I know nothing about twitterfeed so I look forward to learning more! I'm so behind I'm rated similarly too, so don't feel so bad!

I know having a job has taken some pressure off. Good luck with that and with the jewelry business.

Congratulations on clawing back up the rankings!

I understand about pressure affecting creativity - hope that now the NEED to make $$ has gone the creativity just bursts forth :)

Merry christmas!

Glad to see you back! Self employment can be so stressful - glad you found what works for you.

It's good that you are keeping at it - things are tight now so doing it for enjoyment will bring more peace.

Happy holidays to you and your family!

Welcome back. I think most of us have been on break these days. I wanted to come by to say Hello and let you know I have moved my URL for my blog. The old "A Day to Share with Tammy" has a new location.

I can't wait to see what you write on Twitterfeed. I am a "beginner" user. I can use the help.

Happy New Year!

Congrats on your flexi-job!
I also have twojobs, well actually three. I translate, tutor and design and sew bags. But even with these jobs I wouldn't be able to make ends meet on my own. I thank my lucky stars that my hubby's working full-time...
looking forward to seeing your next creations!

Congrats on your flexible part-time job...sounds perfect if it's freeing up your creativity and letting it flow!
