Having Some Fun :)

I was having a bad day - so my brother and I decided it was time to cheer me up! We did a pretty darn good job too :) If you want to see some of the fun photos I posted, go visit my other blog.

I'm also excited because it looks like I'm going to be hiring my brother in the future to do product photography for me! This really excites me for two reasons. One, he has a better camera. Two, my hands shake a lot from medication so it's HARD for me to get good pictures. We're still working out the details but he took a bunch of shots for free today so I can now work on a bunch of new listings!

We also picked up my old bulletin board from my parents house. I stripped it of it's misc items (that was a trip down memory lane) and I started hanging up my necklaces and bracelets. I'm not done, but here's what I have so far! Only problem is I'm rediscovering necklaces of my own that I want to re-make :P

My earrings are going to be on a embroidery hoop. Well, two hoops probably looking at this pile! All I did on that today was to pull them out from their various places they were stashed and dump them on the hoop :P


I've given up the project for the day. Too much moving around and I'm not breathing too clear. I'm assuming it's from the stress earlier this day that had me all in the dumps :P Not feeling as stressed right now, but these things can affect my body long after...

Wow, lots of jewelry! Why are you hanging them up? To keep them more organized?

That would be great of your brother to help you out :) And great of him to cheer you up today :)

Great idea to use an embroidery hoop for the earrings. I need to make something to hang all mine on too!

Great ideas to organize. I was thinking of using my cork board for a show this weekend. I'll have to dig it out and see if it will work. I'm glad your brother will help you out and hope you have better days!

That would be wonderful if your brother could help you out with photos! Is all that jewelry for sale or is it your personal stash? Great organizing tips though!
