This week has already been a busy one and it is not even related to the holidays.
As I mentioned at the end of my previous post, I have found a new job! It is seasonal but that is totally okay with me. I had two days of training so far on Monday and Tuesday of this week from 9 am to 3:30 pm on both days. The first day felt a bit slow to progress and there was a lot of lecture time. Tuesday was better as we broke up into small teams and practiced scenarios to help us better serve clients/customers. The trainer was very knowledgeable and she has been at this company for 10-11 years. I think she did a great job of getting through all of the material.
I am excited and looking forward to starting at my new job as I have been on the job hunt for months! The office I was assigned to is close to me so I can walk there and back home.
In other news, I have made three more Etsy sales courtesy of a local gaming friend! It was very unexpected but, of course, I am very thankful and happy that my friend would find something he liked enough to purchase and give as presents. I hope the recipients enjoy them. :)
Usually, I start a blog post draft a few days before Wednesdays when I publish a new post so I am sorry for those who read my blog if this one is not as “rich” as my last few posts have been. Next week’s may be a bit better with pictures of holiday festivities. :)
I also have a few more jewelry pieces in progress that I am not quite sure how to finish off. I am sure the inspiration will come and I just need to be a little patient. And I am good at being patient which can sometimes be a curse.
This Week’s Etsy Listings
I absolutely LOVED this last piece. I had been eyeing the pendant at Hobby Lobby each time I went there but since it was a little more expensive I kept discouraging myself from buying it. I finally just bit the bullet, bought it, stored it for a few days and then I finally got an idea of how to use it in a piece. It is my most expensive listing to date but it was justified because of the pendant price and it took a little longer to put together than the simpler ribbon and chain bracelets. It was worth it!
The gray button ring and the braided bracelet are also some of my favorite pieces. For some reason I really like grays, almost any shade of gray. I was satisfied with how the pink braided bracelet came out, too. I had an idea for it and I was not sure if it would work but it did and I am glad. :)
Lastly, I am very happy with how most things in my life are turning around and getting better. My Etsy shop is starting to bloom, I am starting at a new job soon, and I am hoping that with this new job I will be more motivated to exercise more and take better care of myself in general. Staying home all the time is not good!
