Woo Hoo, More new stuff!

So, was able to take pics of bracelets and get them up last night.  Take a look!  Let me know what you think! :D  My favorite is the Sapphire blue and cobalt bracelet.  Blue is just a weakness of mine, what can I say?  Misa's Etsy Shop: MisaOrigamiLady

Grand Re-opening Sale

I've finally started getting some of my goals accomplished:
  • Twitter account activated
  • Etsy Followers Found
  • Instagram converted to @MisaOrigamiLady
  • Learning the whole "#" thing
  • Getting a minimum of inventory in the shop!
There's so much to do that does not involve making jewelry that it has started to make my head spin, but, I am taking it one day at a time and making small goals.  

So far I have only focused on making earrings and I am going to be adding bracelets and necklaces next.  I already have a few made and just have to photograph them, oh yes, another goal:

  • Taking good photos


      Be sure to check out my shop for the new additions and my Grand Re-Opening Sale section! Misa Origami Lady

      www.misaorigamilady.etsy.com is up!

      So, I'm back in California and things haven't been as easy as I had hoped but things are moving along.  Being mobile with a broken ankle is slowing me down but I have gotten my etsy.com store up and running.  Check it out and feel free to give me any feedback/constructive criticism.  I am trying to get at least 1-2 pieces up per day and I'm joining an online sale event that starts on the 18th so I will post the flyer for that here on my blog and on facebook.  I don't have a lot of inventory in my shop but that's ok.  It will get some attention to my shop and any traffic will be nice I think.  There's only so much I can do at the moment.

      I will have the boot on for about a few more weeks and then graduate to an ankle support that still has metal bars in the sides to prevent me from moving my ankle the wrong way BUT, by then I shouldn't have to use crutches.  We shall see how all that goes!  Wish me luck with all these things!

      My Florida Adventure Comes To An End

      Tomorrow morning I'll be heading back to California!  I am so excited and sad at the same time.  I'm looking forward to seeing my cats and my crafting room as well as sleeping in my own bed.

      I've been having fun getting ready to re-open my shop:  getting twitter followers, filling out paperwork and playing facebook/etsy games like making treasuries.  The hard yet fun part is to come, the creating and the sales and marketing.  The marketing part has always been a challenge for me, but I feel ready to face it and "Just Do It".  I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but I feel that I've changed and have goals that I want to achieve and plan on achieving.

      So, here's to a new adventure in 2016.  Look out, here comes Misa Origami Lady!

      Happy New Year Crafters and Jewelry Lovers!!!

      Hope everyone is well.  It's been a whirlwind since I last posted.  I broke my ankle, I've been on a cruise to Bermuda, I am in Florida with my in-laws, and I'm suffering from crafting withdrawal symptoms.
      I love my in-laws and Florida has been nice and warm compared to home, but I'm looking forward to being able to sleep in my own bed and play with my crafting supplies and actually get back to creating things.

      Now, I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but I do have a lot of goals for 2016.  I want to get my Etsy shop back up and running.  I'm planning on joining joining as a demonstrator for a business (which shall remain nameless until it's official) and also focus on my health.  Lots of things but I'm very focused.  I have been researching and downloading things nonstop while I've been laid up here in good ol' Florida.  

      Keep your bananas peeled for future developments.  I already have my new shop banner and logo up.  Here's a preview. 

      I will be posting items as soon as I get my licenses and everything straightened out in California.
