Crazed and Sleep Deprived

You miss me?

I am suffering from Bloggers Guilt. I have been crazy busy doing a lot of things except writing here. Mainly, there’s lots going on and a business of mine has taken on a life of its own and keeping me busy late into the night.

Remember my snack bags? These little goodies? Last weekend I participated in my first “Winter Boutique” and they were a big hit. The couple weeks leading up to the sale, I cut, pinned and sewed my way through about 70 of them. The sale happened and I sold a lot. Then I got a call from another group wanting my things at their sale, so I got busy again. Then, I got another call from someone who wants to put them in her store, then another call from a school who has a farmer’s market once a week and they would like to have them there on an on-going basis. And so on.

In addition to my snack bags, I’ve been creating a lot of jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings. More earrings, more bracelets, more inventory. Because I have one more sale to do next weekend and I need to have more to sell. I would rather have too much than to lose out because I didn’t make enough.

Unfortunately, all of these activities, my sewing projects, my jewelry making all has to been done while The Little Miss is dreaming of sugar plum fairies, whatever they are. She would love to “help,” but beads, pins and sharp scissors and 3 year olds don’t mix. Which means a lot of late nights.

There’s a lot happening, a lot of little details to think about and I’m trying to ride this wave while it’s happening. And most of all, I’m still enjoying it. It feels so fulfilling to create. I love the feeling of seeing an idea come to life and seeing people enjoy all my creations.

More to come about "Girl Sunday," the story behind the name, and my super cool logo.

I love, love, love making jewelry. I'm working on a lariat necklace for Mom with the St. Peterburg's design. It's beautiful and SO TIME CONSUMING.

I am so incredibly jealous of all the creativity you have! If you ever open up an Etsy shop or something similar, please let me know - I really would love to have one or two of those snack bags!

Fantastic! You're too busy to blog! That's a good thing. Your business sounds wonderful. A friend of mine makes jewelry, but she doesn't like the business side of the enterprise, so she doesn't succeed. Sounds like you have it all together on the creative and the business side.
