Lessons Learned

Today was quite a whirlwind! It actually started last night when I couldn't sleep.... at ALL. The last time I checked my clock it was 6am (ohmywow). Three hours later my phone starts buzzing - but it was all with lovely news! If you recall my last post I mentioned making a pair of special order earrings. Those to the left were the outcome. Aren't the lovely?!! (Thanks) I made them for my aunt - as a prototype. I put these brown and peach peacock earrings on Charmed Styles (Esty) in the weeee hours of the morning. By the time I woke up - they were SOLD!! I was shocked. Pleasantly shocked, but still - SHOCKED. My aunt didn't even get a chance to see them, but that's ok. She chose purple, blue, and orange which are the colors of the company for whom she works.

Today's lessons (and I learned quite a few)
  1. E-mail pics of the listing as soon as I post.
  2. Sometimes shipping costs just as much as the item (ohmywow!!)
  3. Invest in a huge roll of bubble wrap - gotta keep my precious jewels safe as they ship.
  4. Advertising is not nagging. I admitt I was feeling a little guilty because I felt I may have entered the world of a nagging sales rep, but I remembered that you get out of a situation what you put into it. {I'm claiming return 1000 times over my imagination}
  5. Be patient... and keep praying.
{voice whispers}If you make it... they will buy!

Stay CHARMING! xoxo
