Studio Tour Sunday

 I am finally getting back into the swing of things, and it's a good thing, because the holiday season is approaching and I have lots of work to do.  I really started to feel the impending holiday crunch at the Rust Belt yesterday.  Clearly, my weekends there are going to keep me very busy this season, especially with the extended friday hours that start next week.  It is a bit of a relief to not have to push so hard to try to do a bunch of shows or online sales this year.  The hours will be long, but I love it there so much and love not having to set up and break down shows and have to work so hard to hustle.  While I had to give up on doing my big Etsy Boot Camp because of all the events in my personal life lately, I am still working to get my websites stocked and my galleries stocked too.

By the way, you have until midnight tonight to take advantage of my birthday sale.  The code BIRTHDAYGIRL gets you 20% off on my Website, Etsy shop, and Etsy Jewelry Galleria, where you can find pieces like the one above.
