Stamping spree!

I have had such fun the past couple of days- I made these hand stamped sterling silver, copper and aluminum guitar picks on Monday and Tuesday. I feel so blessed that my job is to make a person’s vision a reality- what fun!

Now if my new doggie would just not freak out when I get out my hammer…

Its official! I am now finished with the medical transcription job!!!

It was approximately three years ago that I started working from home as a medical transcriptionist; I had done it in house for five years before that. My health issues demanded more rest and the job was good for that. As the dystonia has progressed, it has become more difficult to do the repetitive motions that typing requires. I feel very grateful that I was able to work in such a situation, but felt overwhelmed over the past several months. Now, a new chapter begins! 

These items pictured state my frame of mind as I write this: I hope they inspire you too!

I have had a fantastic week! Look at all the guitar picks I made for people! There are three not pictured because they are more personal…I didn’t want to make anyone uncomfortable, so I left them out. If you need a custom piece, come to my Etsy shop. I will do my best to accommodate you! http://www.beadsoul.etsy.com

Pondering on why the sudden upswing in business gave me these answers: I have worked hard on marketing, it is Christmas time and people love personalized items- yup, that is all true! I believe the reason I had so many orders last week is that the big personalized jewelry people stopped taking custom orders a while ago. Those who still want something eventually found me! I worked hard to do things well and to include a lovely freebie- I want my customers to have an awesome experience and to come back :)

I will be back to show you the cool Christmas journals and Icon journals I am making. The fundraising is going great!
