One of the current Blog Fire Carnival Themes is "Wow Necklaces" and that tickles me because I was planning on writing a post about necklaces today anyway! I chose to show of my recent creation "Spring Bubbles" because I got a TON of positive feedback, and that makes me say Wow!
The reason I'm thinking about Necklaces today is that I'm in the process of going through my inventory and getting prepared for the summer bazaar season. One step in getting ready was to reorganize how I kept my necklaces. I had been keeping them in a clear plastic box separated by layers of construction paper. I would put two or three necklaces per sheet of paper and at first that worked. Eventually, though, my inventory just grew too large. It was awkward, things began to get tangled, and it was frustrating looking through it for a specific necklace.
Today I finally pulled out some snack bags and put all my necklaces in those. This will make it much easier to find the necklaces, and no tangling! I didn't have enough of the little baggies in my drawer, so I took a walk down the hill to the little grocery store to pick up more. It's a beautiful day out today!
I was rather surprised at what I found when I counted up my necklaces after they were in bags. After all, counting was a cumbersome process before! I have 40 necklaces in my inventory between my two stores. I think that's a good start for the summer bazaar season - how about you?
Oh yes - and for anybody who read yesterday's post, this means I have one thing crossed off the list :D
