Resolutions

Happy New Year!!!

So, I have many resolutions for 2010 (or 20X as my friend Patrick would say). 🙂  Most have to do with health and family, but there are a few that I have reserved for my business.  The first is the BLOG MORE!  So many people ask me what I’m up to and how things are coming along and I feel like I am becoming a tad negligent.  So, I must get to work!

I’ve even considered creating a video blog instead of typing since I never really have the time.  So I’ll be purchasing one of those nifty flip cams in the near future. 🙂  So join me on youtube and vimeo to see what i say next!

I’ve redesigned my website once again. But my photos are not up to par.  So at the moment I am building inventory. After my two November Holiday shows I put the rest of my stock in consignment.  So, I’m starting from scratch and preparing one of every color in my line for superior photo work. 🙂  Tonight I made about 30 frames. (I’d cut inner wires last night).  Not bad for one night.  Now, two more nights just like this one and then I can get to wrapping!

Another resolution is to create more tutorials.  The first tutorial is now an instant download!  No more waiting for me to get out of church in order to email it to you! lol I’m very excited about that.  But everyone asks about the stringing and design creation. I’ve got to create a ‘pattern book’ if you will.  And also one to show you how to make perfect shapes! So, look for those tuts in the very near future.

The last business resolution you can help me with!  I will have 2010 people following me on Twitter by the end of the year (or sooner if I have my way!)  So, please tell a friend and help! 🙂

And now the fun part… what resolutions have YOU made for this year?

I’m sure they include being fabulous!

Tutorial Price

Well yall, I have let it stand for a few extra days. I’m still locked out of this blog and gmail account, so I wasn’t able to edit the original post.
The promotional price is over. The tutorial is now 20 dollars. So sorry about that if you missed it.

I saw another tutorial that JUST came out on the 10th. I wanted to choke. Not because a new tutorial is available, but because the finished product of the earring looked awful. (Really sorry, but it’s so true).

So if you grab my tutorial, trust me you will not be sorry. I’ve received great feedback and seen pics of the fab creations that were made using the instructions in my tutorial. People are definately having a ball with it!


Well, that’s all for now yall!

Love ya! Be fabulous!

My First Consignment

So a wonderful couple came into my world not too long ago.
They’ve opened a wonderful consignment store right on Ft. Riley Blvd here in Manhattan and have asked if they can sell my earrings in their store!

I am so excited. I visited the store for the first time tonight dropping of a stash of those MadeByAmber threads!

Of course I’m still locked out of my blog. I’m going to move it to WordPress soon. (Madebyamber.wordpress.com)

Anyway, check out http://www.T-La-Re.com or stop by 2047 Ft.
Riley Blvd in Manhattan, KS!

And be fabulous!

The Riley County Fair

So I totally wanted to type this on my lapotop instead of my bberry, but apparently I am locked out. 😦
If I can’t get back in soon I may change blog sites. 😦

At any rate, a lot of people have asked me how the Riley County Fair went. So here was my experience. Sorry no pics at the moment.

So it started out pretty rough. I found out that my 10 x 10 booth was on an incline! At first I didn’t think it was bad until I started setting up my earrings. Oh my! It was steep! I had to use the bed risers that I usually use on all four legs of my tables to only the legs in the front. It was very odd. And extremely uncomfortable sitting down the entire time. My chiropracter (who incidentally had a booth just next to mine) made me aware that due to the way I sit with my legs crossed most of the time, my hips are out of whack and make one leg slightly shorter than the other. 🙂 I’m sure 5 days sitting on a slant did nothing to help the matter. Haha

By the end of the first day I discovered that my friends may have needed a bit more understanding of what henna actually is, so I made another sign explaining the proccess. It really helped.

Day 2 and 3 picked up nicely. But I’m so glad I decided to do henna as well. My clients were at the fair to have fun, eat great food, see exhibits–not to buy super cool jewelry. So if all I had were my earrings I would have been a sad girl.

In terms of my Henna designs, the 5-ers book I got from HennaCaravan.com were nice. I’ve done more crosses than anything else. I also had some special requests. I got to learn a treble/bass cleff heart, as well as a lily. :). And the glitter was VERY popular.

I always seemed to be the last one to tear down as the teens would come out and night. Haha

I spent my downtime searching for new henna designs to learn, and laughing with Fred and the girls. 🙂

Aside from misplacing my wallet on Sunday (which I have finally decided to stop searching for), the event was successful. I loved my tent update, my fam, my friends that came by to let me practice on them, and the experience I got out of it.

Man, once I get back into blogger, I promise to post pics. 🙂

Love yall,

Be fabulous!
