Bootcamp Continues

So I haven't been great at keeping up with my homework or this blog. Its on my to-do list for the weekend. My notes are partly written down in my notebook, and some are in my head.  Just need to get them all out.

My day job has kept me working hard, then on Thursday I injured myself while attempting to prevent a patient fall. Well, he still fell, but not as hard, and he didn't get hurt. So that's my job right? Don't let the patient get more hurt. However, I sprained my low back and wrist. That makes typing quite an adventure right now. Haven't even attempted to make any new jewelry. That will probably have to take a few weeks break :( 

But for some good news, I found a bunch of already edited photos of my jewelry. Oh happy day, since most jewelry designers, and etsy sellers in general, dislike the photo taking and editing process the most. But those finished photos mean I will be listing new items in the coming days, so keep checking back often. Here's my newest necklace.

Keep an eye out for my new items and blog posts as I get ready for this holiday season.

Holiday Bootcamp

Wow. It's been a month since I have checked in.  I have been working hard on retaking and editing my photos to better show off the beauty of the jewelry.

The next major step I'm taking is to join the Holiday Boot camp on  The holidays are fast approaching us, and this is the first holiday season that I will be selling my jewelry, I want to have the best chance to succeed.'s my pledge:

I, Elizabeth of , pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!

With that pledge, its off to finish my week one homework and start my week two homework. Kinda fun to be doing homework again, especially when the results will be immediately evident!!
