Thanks to the wonderful girls in the bead group, I've got funds again. At least enough to pay a bill or two. I decided to take a few (ok, 5 1/2) trays of beads to sell with me to group tonight. I just explained that I'd had a bad weekend as far as sales, that I didn't expect them to buy, no pressure, just look if you want, and that everything was 50% off the price marked. It worked! Some bought, some didn't. They all asked me to do it again in a few weeks. OK! And to think I couldn't get any of these ladies to buy from me when I had the store. Of course - I'm sure it was the 50% off price that lured them, but still. I can at least pay rent to Connie now. Providing I haven't made that much this month. I may have. I haven't been there very much, and I know I've sold a few things - but I doubt that I will have sold enough to pay my rent. We'll find out tomorrow....
Anyway, I thanked them all for contributing to 'the Sheryl fund'. They were happy to help!
I've already starting working with a little bit of Saturday's stash - trying to work some silk ribbon in with some chain, Vintaj brass and verdigree stained findings, and a great PURPLE (of course) dragonfly focal. It's not quite going like I'd hoped - I think I need more Vintaj!
Hopefully some photos tomorrow.... Working at Coyote, and then probably a free outdoor concert afterward. Should be a beautiful day. Visually, mentally, physically and spiritually.
