I've been scrambling to have enough jewelry on hand for the different stores that carry it (never mind having some on hand for me to feature on my Etsy site). So I'm now setting some new goals:
- Make semi-duplicates (one for the store, one for my Etsy site)
- Separate out my stock so that I'm not constantly drawing from things I have on my website
- Carve out a lot more time to get my stock tripled before craft show season starts.
Lofty goals . . . okay, maybe just number 3, but I'm hoping to achieve them. Craft Show Season officially starts with Art in the Park on May 2nd. I have a feeling it's coming faster than I know.
Meanwhile, I'm also hoping to figure out a strategy to really get my robots going. I love making them more than anything else. How do I find the right market for them?
Any suggestions? Anyone?

Here's the problem: I have no idea how to write about myself. Is this bio supposed to be just facts about what I do, or is it supposed to be the "why" behind what I do?
I have no great ideas or insights on either approach. I know I like to take things apart and put them back together in a new way. I know that the ideas for my jewelry come from trial and error. I can see pictures in my head, but then I have to try them out several different ways before I know it's right. Mostly, for my robots or jewelry, it's just a feeling I have when I know something fits together just right.
So how do I succinctly right about that without sounding like a moron? And do they also want to know things like I'm a stay-at-home-mom of three unruly boys? Do they want to know that I do this "hobby" so I won't go crazy? What fits and what doesn't?
Hmmm . . .

I'm guessing the big one's name is Sugar, though I haven't quite figured out the smaller one yet. I must meditate on them . . . stories to come later--or sooner if another burst of Spring air comes through.

Eventually, I'd like a site where I can feature each robot, each piece of jewelry, etc., but for now I'm looking for something simple and direct. While I'm definitely not done, I'm looking for any feedback that can be given. Let me know what you think: www.remnantsbyrj.com
