Creating My Website

I am using iWeb, which is fairly easy to use, but has some quirks I have yet to figure out. Another challenge will be to get this info from iWeb onto my Internet website. I am definitely not a computer geek, so I will need to figure out how to do this.  By the time you read this I will have successfully achieved this goal. See it at http://www.lynnwhitejewelry.com

My First Juried Show

Originally posted: November 3, 2008

After 2 months of very intense work at business set-up, and getting jewelry items made, I was in my first juried art show on September 6-7, 2008.  It was quite an exciting endeavor for me.  Special thanks go to my husband Dave, who created the PVC pipe booth frame for me from plans purchased from Jewel Hut.

Setting Goals

Originally posted:  November 10, 2008

In the process of starting a business, you get your fingers into EVERYTHING.  Sometimes it is overwhelming, trying to keep it all organized.  This weekend, I finally put together one of my old stand-bys, the goals list, or  the “to do” list.  I already have one for my business, but this new one is for my personal goals.  I find that I have spent so much time on  getting my jewelry business started that I have neglected to continue learning how to play my new piano. I am also a budding watercolor artist and that has been put on hold.  Now I am going to make sure that I “schedule” weekly goals for each of those areas, including home and personal.  I find that if I have the ability to look at a list and check off something I’ve done, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.  I believe this will help give secondary goals more prominence in my day, while not affecting my jewelry business goals.

THANKSGIVING

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving if we didn’t reflect on what we are grateful for.  I’m grateful for family, especially my husband Dave, and our 2 cats Sierra & Sequoia. We are thankful for our health, a roof over our heads, food on the table, and a steady paycheck for Dave.   I am also grateful for the many opportunities that I have had in my life to pursue different interests.  This year brought about the start of my business, Lynn White Jewelry, and I look forward to many years of designing and creating  beautiful handcrafted jewelry.  I hope that this creative pursuit brings as much joy to others as it does to me.

Thank you so much Lynn for your advice! I ordered the instruction manual right away. Your booth is absolutly beautiful. Jewel hut should take down the picture they have of their demo booth and put yours up- yours is so much better! Good luck with future shows!
