It's been sooooo long....

Poor neglected blog.
No posts since 2012...

...when I was creating mostly stamped metal clay pieces. 

Fast forward to 2016. 
I have a dream studio  
where I can work late into the night.
I'm a nighthawk.

It's full of antiques that make me happy. 
And tools.
Lots of tools.

I have health limits. I can make jewelry at my own pace.

Handsome hubby has retired.

We like to travel. #PablothePom

I can make jewelry while camping.

Now there's time for me to grow as an artist.
I have a website,

I'm developing seasonal lines.

I sell at retail locations.
I founded a local jewelry guild.

My jewelry has won awards. 

I've been published.
(Ok... it was just a wee bench tip. But I'll take it!)
I do two local summer shows in Betsy the vintage boler...

I feel a lot of...

I'm overwhelmed.  
Mostly it's that I do everything myself. 
I don't trust others with my vision nor can I afford help.
I source out all my materials, deal with inventory, do my social media posts, manage my webpage & email, meet customers and do accounting. 
Oh... and I create! 
(...if there's any energy left. Lately, there isn't.)

Sometimes, it's just easier to procrastinate in the face of all the work.
Big Picture Dream. 
Rebrand to "dlf jewelry".

"dlf" is my signature. 

*Ecommerce on my website

*help with social media

*develop cohesive lines & a recognizable style. 

*production help. 

*photography help.

*an office manager to manage inventory and accounting tasks. 


I need to win the lottery to make this happen. 

Or win a scholarship to Multiply Your Profits from Flourish & Thrive

Wouldn't that be winning the lottery?
