This weekend has been nothing less than crazy. It started off with a bang on friday when I was lucky enough to be featured in etsy's Weekend Deals . I was blessed with a few orders, for which I am always grateful. The weekend took a turn for the worse however when I was publicly and privately accused of copying. Some pretty harsh words were said about me, and how much my shop "sucks" and has no cohesive feel to it. It was also said that I must be "internally miswired", disrespectful and Karma will "kick me in the ass" and will effect my friendships, relationships, and life. Pretty awful & hateful. However, I have decided to do my best not to let it hurt me any more than it already has, and to keep my chin up. Instead I spent last night working away at the bench. Dan was out of town, as is the landlady so I hammered into the wee hours of the morn ( 2am hammering is delightful!)
I did manage to create a good amount of new items, as well as finish my orders for the weekend. I guess this is proof that good things can come from ugly situations, right ?
BUMBLE BERRY CUFF
( to complete the set with my POPPY Earrings, and POPPY Ring)
TURQUOISE LOVERS Ring
HIP TO BE SQUARE Earrings
(this one is actually from earlier in the week)
Next blog post will most likely be pics of my new tools that I droned on about the other day and the delicious stones I have anxiously be waiting for!
