Procrastination! My big day is almost here!

Posted by pixe1 on January 26, 2009

Ok, I know you are all wondering what my big day is…Well, I’ll fill ya in on the secret!!  Tomorrow, I have my first sales presentation to a dog boutique owner, that I do not personally to know, to try to hawk my WoofWear Jewels.    Pray tell, what are Woof Wear Jewels???  They are charms you attach to your dog’s collar to make those cheap ugly dog tags look really cool!!!  Total bling for poochies!  My Miss Sophie loves hers!!!

Am I ready for this…NOOOOOOOOOO!!!  Will I be ready Tuesday??  You Betcha!!!   I’ve got my sales pitch in my head, and ready to go!!!  I just have everything else to do!  Like make a  little jewelry roll to display them to the owner, make some extra samples…..But, I can do this!!!    Yes I can, Yes I can!!!   Nothing like a little procrastination to make the hands work faster!!!  And yes, this is normal for me…if I made NewYear’s resolutions, ending the procrastination would be one of them!    I have found that when I google “procrastination”, there is a lot to read….perhaps I’ll get that later…

So wish me luck!!!

Hoping your day is wonderful and peaceful!!!

Giving Thanks

Posted by pixe1 on November 26, 2008

This is the time of year we tradionally stop to think about what we are thankful for.   Some of us count our blessings everyday.  I do.  And I’m fortunate to have many.

I’m thankful for the the wonderful family and friends I have.  I am especially thankful for my mom and my son, who are so supportive of my artisan jewelry business.  I can never thank them enough for giving up their day, and helping and keeping me company during craft shows.  My dad has been wonderful too, sharing his business insight with me, and I thought that only was passed down from father to son!  What a lucky daughter I am!!

I’m thankful for you,  all my new friends and customers who take precious time out of their day to take a peek at my jewelry.  I find great joy in sharing my creations.

What are you thankful for?

Take a moment.  Count your blessings everyday, not just once  a year.  I’m willing to bet if a penny was put aside for each thing we are thankful for,  we would be rich!!!

May you all have a truly wonderful Thanksgiving day and stay safe!

This blog is about…..

Posted by pixe1 on November 10, 2008

I have made the decision on how to use this blog….it will be about tips on buying handcrafted jewelry, caring for jewelry,  and will be about the stones (not the rock group, but the stones I use in my jewelry, and some that I don’t).  I plan to write a weekly blog and if there is anything you want discussed, let me know.   I am open to suggestions.   Monthly, I plan to discuss the birthstone of that month.  I also plan to  announce future sales that will take place on my etsy site.   Also, my sale items are also on sale at the craft show I am at that month.

So, to give you a heads up …For the month of December, all turquoise jewelry will be on sale at my etsy shop,   Pixe’s Treasure Chest,  and at the craft show at Wilson Southern Junior High School, December 6, 2008.

Who is Pixe1???

Posted by pixe1 on October 29, 2008

Hi all, I’m Pixe1, aka Michele, aka Mich.  

This is my first ever attempt at blogging, so bear with me.   May take awhile to work out the bugs and figure this out!   LOL  I haven’t figured out exactly what I want to do with this blog, but I will figure it out.   When I know, you will know!

 I started beading over a year ago to fullfill a need to feed my inner creative soul which was screaming to be let out.   I am a self taught beader and I do some work in wire.   I prefer uncluttered designs, mainly because most the time I feel my life is cluttered,  and I’m sure many feel the same. Beading is a way to bring sanity back,   even if only temporarily!!  I prefer to work with semi precious gemstones, sterling silver and copper.   I’m hoping to get acquainted with some gold filled wire very soon!   We should have some fun together!!  Mother Nature is my most inspiring model!

I have become addicted to beading!  OK, I admit it, as many of us beaders do.   Because of this, I have opened and etsy store,  Pixe’s Treasure Chest.  I also do craft shows when I’m not working my other job.  

If you are in the Reading PA area, I have two more craft shows this year:  

Sat, Nov. 8, 2008 at Conrad Weiser High School   9 am to 3 pm; and Sat. Dec. 6, 2008 at Wilson Southern Junior High School.   Both are to be big shows!!!

I’m from Eastern Pennsylvania, very beautiful country with a large PA. Dutch influence.   I work as a Registered Nurse when I’m not beading, and I’m mom to a grown son and a big poodle.

Feel free to hop in and introduce yourself.  I look forward to meeting you all!!

Thank  you for visiting my blog.   May your day be absolutely wonderful, peaceful, and safe!
