I love overcast skies. Love it. It’s cool and beautiful weather in Melbourne, Australia, this morning. Made 2 more sales this morning. My heart still skips a beat everytime someone has bought something from my store.

New in store…

I have so many new ideas for my store…store direction, item designs, etc…so much to do, so little time, as always! Stay close attention because I have some exciting SALE coming up this weekend. Announcement in a few hours…

Happy February! I can’t believe it’s already the second month of the new year. We spent most of the weekend watching the Australian Open semi-finals and finals, and half the day today watching the Superbowl. A couple of sports junkies, we are!

January was a rather good month for my Etsy store; I got about 40 sales. I’m not making any money yet but that’s okay, for now. I’m still offering a 10% off on all my items in the SALE section, so please come on in to take a look!

My Etsy goals for Feb 2009:

  • 40 sales
  • introduce more product varieties (include rings and possibly brooches)
  • spend LESS time lurking around and posting on Etsy forums
  • 50 hearts

Sounds reasonable, eh? We shall see!

The singing bird necklace USD20. Product description on http://cherbie.etsy.com.

Have you ever had your patience tried and tried and tried so hard that you’ve gone from excitement to anxiety, to fury, to depression, to nonchalance, to feeling incompetent? While I remember Psalms 23 about God’s protection and guidance, Ecclesiastes about how everything has its time, and Philippians 4 about how God will supply my needs, and while I KNOW that this wait IS temporary, I do get tired of waiting sometimes and just let myself grief, whine, and cry about it (because I am only human); but for no more than 15 minutes in a day. I’ve never had to wait so long for anything in my life or feel this defeated. Ever. Maybe that’s why I’m having such a hard time dealing with it.

So my 15 minutes is up. Thanks for reading and I’m sure I’ll have good news to report on this blog. Soon.

Audrey necklace -in an oval bezel. Only USD16.50 coming soon on http://cherbie.etsy.com

Things have been pretty quiet around here since the little burst of sales last weekend. Which, in a way, is rather good because that gives me time n space to grow my current collection.
