I have had 3 shows in the last month and my studio reflects the chaos that results from show preparations. I’ve been making as much jewelry as possible, creating hang tags and earrings cards – but not cleaning up after myself.
Now that my shows are over for a while, I need to focus inward a bit. I’m posting pictures here of how my studio looks today, with the intent of holding myself accountable for showing you better organized results next week.
2 Saturdays ago, I was at the Olympia Artists’ Garage Sale. I sold not just jewelry, but also surplus supplies. I filled 2 plastic shoe boxes with beads I no longer wanted. I had sold about 2/3 of the beads, when a couple approached my booth and asked if I would sell all the remaining beads for $10! For sure! So that was the start of my spring cleaning efforts. I also sold some display items I no longer wanted. The more unneeded stuff I can clear out of this room, the better!
I made a number of new earrings, bracelets and necklaces for my shows this month, but I haven’t listed them online yet. So along with cleaning up, I intend to list new jewelry. Be sure to follow my Linda Landig Jewelry Facebook page, as I will post all my shop updates there.
