A few musings

1. This book is pretty awesome.... I think you are going to love it - 30 days of inspiration. Its a book, a blog and so much more.

2. This week I have been thinking of a new business name for our little jewellery endeavour (If you don't already know - we began making jewellery last year to help raise the necessary funds to send me on a missions trip to Uganda.) As momentum gathers we are looking at ways of funding more mission trips and supporting our local church and their global missions projects. We hope to have a few products online in the not too distant future. The website details are still being worked through ... these things seem to take time - and lots of it.

This whole business side of things is a little overwhelming. I like creating, designing and making BUT I hate filling in forms and getting things registered ... argh!!

3. We have been purchasing our pieces from a local shop but they have recently put up their prices so think we should go a little further afield into the big ole internet world. So, I was wondering if anyone knows some great shopping spots/places to buy things online? I am not really very savvy in this regard, dare I say I haven't even bought anything through ebay - hhmmm!!, don't even think I've looked at ebay. Maybe that's my age showing... eeekk!!! 
(any suggestions to help us get started are most welcome :)

This might be a place to try...I have ordered things from them in the past, http://www.firemountaingems.com/


I always seem to get the BEST prices for wholesale - including shipping - from Etsy sellers!!! And it just depends on what you are looking for and you might have to wade through a lot of sellers, but the process is relatively easy...you can email me at fort[dot]cindy[at]gmail[dot]com if you would like, and I will send you my phone number and we can talk while I walk you through it...

I am so excited for all that God is putting before you!

Oh, and thank you for the book suggestion...I just went over to check it out and it "is calling my name ♪♫♪"!

That book sounds great! Yes... the business side of business isn't the most fun part! That is for sure. lol I was also going to suggest etsy or artfire. Both have great ways to search for exactly what you are looking for! :)

Just a note on the purchasing for your business...you can buy wholesale if you've got a business ID which you probably already know. When I had a retail shop, I went to the trade shows and got the best deals on close-outs...which is really great when you are doing small, individual items and not large, bulk inventory. Hope this helps. Fondly, Roberta

oooo- this book is calling to me too. It looks like a fun read. Thanks for sharing it. As far as the jewelry resources go- artbeads.com limabeads.com and firemountaingems.com are my internet resources-but etsy sellers always seem to be my best finds. I hope that helps a bit. Blessings to you with this new venture!
