I will be working on the new website, and hope to have something to launch mid to late January! I want to add a lot more content, and open up a much better shop. The current format is hard to manage. I've spent my time concentrating on Etsy only. I will also be more active with social media too, especially Twitter and Pinterest.
I just upgraded my cell phone to a much higher quality, meaning my photos will be much better, and I can update the web store easily on my phone when needed. All we need now is the phone to write more engaging descriptions for me. Just kidding! That's something I need to find time for.
I have new gem trees coming up, and I have a few already listed on Etsy. One in particular is a gorgeous Clear Quartz on a special, sparkly Rosasite/Gypsum rock base. I used a dark copper wire, and wow! I also have two Amber Gem trees- light or dark copper wire- and they are both mounted on a piece of dark Baltic Amber.
I've been playing with the bonsai form too, it keeps getting better and better! I'll post a photo of the one most perfect Jade bonsai I made the other night. I posted it to Facebook, and a few minutes later my friend bought it! I only can hope my future bonsais can provoke such emotion to sell quickly!
That's all I had for now. I just wanted to say thanks again, and look for great things to come in 2014! Personally, I'm excited to be concentrating solely on this business, and not sharing my time with a PT job!
Happy New Year!
