can we ever have more hours within the day? i find that i am busier working from home, than when i still had a full-time job.

i was able to finish a squidoo article yesterday about beading and jewelry-making for beginners, and have made a recommendation for a fantastic resource, the Beading for Beginners eBook. i also was able to update the links on my sidebar (finally!) and have informed those linked. i am planning to feature artists on this blog as a regular thing, i just need to put a few things in order before proceeding. i also managed to make updates and fix my twitter account. aside from that, i listed four items in my etsy shop and sold three!

earrings swarovski crystal pearl formal elegant wedding

this one sold within an hour after listing.

earrings aqua/purple crystals

 this piece looks good enough to eat!

stunning and sure to be a converstaion-starter, it is made of various beads of aqua, purple, a combination of aqua and purple, clear crystal rondelles and swarovski AB crystals. the focal point of this piece is the purple resin bead.

the length of the earring including the hook is approximately 7cms (around 2.75inches)

very attractive, gorgeous, fun, colourful and would liven up any outfit!

necklace lariat crystal pearl dainty elegant unique


this lariat necklace is stunning, elegant and unique, as well as dainty, feminine and gorgeous.

sure to demand a second look, this piece has, on one end of a dainty and delicate silver chain, a thin silver ring and a cascade of crystals and pearls on the other end. the 'waterfalls' is meant to be looped into the ring.

the length of the necklace including the ring and the cascade of pearls and crystals is approximately 63cms (around 24.8inches)

earrings heart crystal pearl elegant gorgeous feminine

'blush' is gorgeous! a cascade of various beads --- crystal round beads, baby pink swarovski crystals, swarovski crystal AB bicones, minty green swarovski crystal, barely pink glass pearls, minty green round beads and crystal teardrops --- end with a nude acrylic heart. including the hook, the earring measures approximately 7cms (around 2.75inches).

pretty pleased with the items i have listed. i need to make a few more today just to keep the shop well-stocked. pretty doubly pleased with a couple of deals that were made yesterday as well. a contact from dubai has commissioned me to make items for her to sell over there. also, two soon-to-be brides have commissioned me to make their bridesmaids' gifts as well. business looks to be promising.

now if only i can keep this blog updated, as well as tweet regularly, write articles, develop my facebook page, create an rss feed in this blog for potential subscribers, contribute to and be an active member of my street teams --- down under street team and christian artists street team, find reliable and good quality suppliers, look after bub, learn how to cook (!), do all household chores, be a fantastic wife and do yoga regularly, everything would be swell. phew. that's only a partial list of things to do.

who says being a home-based working mum isn't a full-time job?
