OMG, I have a sale this week on Friday, May 7th, and I cannot find a dang thing! Sent off a large box of inventory to someone who needed it to find something for themself and for a few other people and I have to make up some things quick. So, My dear OCD husband is snickering behind my back, as I frantically try to find "findings" etc. to pull together some necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

He is always telling me "Let me organize you!" OOOOOOOOOOOH! I don't think so. Although I am getting a little bit fed up with my disorganized mess. Maybe.
I usually know exactly where I put something. I really do. Maybe it is memory loss of some sort?
I don't know but since I have been on some new drugs for my auto-immune disorders, I have trouble remembering even the simplest of words. I am blaming the drugs. It cannot be age!

Are all of us who are creative as messy as me??? I ask this question sincerely and hope someone will reply!! If even just to make me feel better. Better get hopping.

The good news is that I think I sold quite a bit of what went out in that box! Hallelujah! On-line selling is hard. People really seem to like to touch and feel their jewelry before they purchase it.
And, I should understand, I am the same way at a bead show.

Well, better scoot. Husband is making dinner and I need to be hard at work. Hope all you readers are making things and having good sales for the spring and summer. Would love for you to share your tips at how you handle sales at gemshows or craft fairs. Let me know if you would like to be on my blog with some interesting and helpful facts!

Addictively your,


  1. I only sell online hate to get all my jewelry all scrambled when I do a sale!

  2. Speaking only for myself, yes creative people are disorganized! I too, had a sale and couldn't locate the piece! Still haven't found it after two weeks, but did make and send another, plus gave her a free one as a consolation for not sending the original.
