I'm cheating a bit and combining my #favequote and #usefulresource for #fallingformakers Even as an adult I still love Dr. Seuss. I made this and other designs on the website Canva.com. Very easy to use and has templates for many social media formats! #famousquote #drseuss #beyou #beyourself #doyou #templates #resourceforsocialmedia #smallbusiness #entrepreneurlife #artist #etsysellers​ #monthlychallenge​ ​ #octoberchallenge​ #jewleryartist ​ #makersmovement #meettheartist​ #behindthescenes​ #handmadejewelry​ #makersgonnamake #fallchallenge​ ​ #etsy​ #etsyshopowner​ #shopsmall #shoplocal #handmadegifts #handmadewithlove

Day 28 of #fallingformakers challenge is for #usefulresource . I use Pantones color carts, sometimes YouTube and Pinterest is my absolutely favorite for looking out trending color combinations. Those color combinations are very useful to know when you are doing Wedding jewelry and otherwise too, because clothing industries follow those trends very fast. When you know what colors are coming in style you can make matching jewelry before they are mainstream trend. #etsyjewelry #colors🎨 #etsyjewelryshop #glamoroussparkle #etsyshop #jewelrydesigner #myresource #weddingjewelry #handmade #handmadejewelry #pinterestinspired #youtubevideos #pantonecolors #trendingcolors #jewelrylover

Day 26 of the #fallingformakers challenge brings us Back to #firstsale . πŸ˜€ I Sold this rubber band bracelet on etsy when I started my shop. I think I had my shop open for couple of month and then some wonderful people did Sneak attack my shop. They were fellow makers that choosed newbie shops and bought some stuff from them. Still remember that with grateful heart. ❀️ #etsyjewelry #etsyjewelryshop #photooftheday #grateful #glamoroussparkle #myfirstsale #firstetsysale #sneakattack #october #fallchallenge #howistarted #pinkbracelet #day 26 #backthen #memorylane #etsyshopowner

#Fallingformakers Day 23: Learned βœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨ It should be so obvious, right? One needs a clear vision of their destination, goals & objectives in order to reach them. βœ¨πŸ’Žβœ¨ My lifelong tendency has been to run at full speed in what feels like it is the right direction as hard as possible & often forgetting to pull back & look at where it is I truly want to be. At times when I’ve finally stopped to look up, I’ve found myself totally turned around. I’ve learned I constantly need to β€œzoom out” & make sure I’m still aiming at the correct target 🎯 - - - - - - - - - - - #octoberchallenge #ojai #fallchallenge #handmade #jewelrydesigner #target #smallbusiness #goals #fashionblogger #autumn #smallbusinessowner #luxe #michaelgerber #emyth #inspirationalquotes #day23

Day 25 of the #fallingformakers challenge and it’s #boomerang time. πŸ˜€ Wanted to show you my crystal bangle, because that Swarovski Volcano color is just amazing. ❀️ It has so many different colors when light catches it. I use other brand crystals too but Swarovski is just the best when you need to sparkle. πŸ˜‰ #glamoroussparkle #day 25 #october #handmade #swarovskicrystals #volcanocolors #crystalbangles #braceletlover #sparkleislife #lovesparkle #crystallove #lovethecolors #autumncolors🍁 #etsyshop #etsyseller #myfavorite #autumnchallenge18 #nofilter

#fallingformakers Day 23. What I have learned from starting a small business is that you can have the best supplies, tools, packaging, etc but if I wasn't surrounded by such amazing ppl, I'm sure I would not have got this far. They support my ideas and give me new ones, They help me out at events, They buy my items and don't expect it for free, They come to my events, They share my posts and spread the word about my business!! I've read so many horror stories from other small business owners so I feel incredibly lucky for the ppl in my life πŸ’š #familyandfriends #supportivefamily #feelingthelove #handmadelove #familytime #hearts #lovedones #lovemyfamily #supporthandmade #supportthemakers #supportlocalartists #buysmall #shopsmall #handmadewithlove #etsysellers​ #monthlychallenge​ ​ #octoberchallenge​ #jewleryartist ​ #makersmovement #meettheartist​ #behindthescenes​ #handmadejewelry​ #torontoartist #makersgonnamake #fallchallenge​ ​ #etsy​

Day 23 of the #fallingformakers challenge is for #learned . Here is something I have learned over years. Change don’t have to be scary and bad thing. It’s sometimes necessary to change in business and personal life, everything will work out. Sometimes you have to step out comfort zone and challenge yourself to learn new things, develope new skills and trust yourself. ❀️ #octoberchallenge #makermovement #mymotivation #changeisgood #gettingoutofcomfortzone #etsyseller #etsyshopowner #handmade #glamoroussparkle #smallbusiness #motivationalquoteoftheday #tuesdaymotivation #day23 #makersgonnamake

Day 18 of the #fallingformakers challenge is for #toolsandmaterials . I love to use Czech glass beads and glass pearls in my jewelry designs. And I have serious bead cap addiction πŸ˜‰. This picture has my jewelry beading mat as a background, which is so handy because beads don’t roll to every place. πŸ‘πŸ» #octoberchallenge #etsyhandmade #mytools #jewelrysupplies #czechglassjewelry #glasspearls #jewelrydesigner #handmadejewelry #mymaterials #beadingsupplies #glamoroussparkle #fallchallenge #meetmakers #etsyshop #etsyseller #glassbeadjewelry #makermovement

Day 15 of #fallingformakers is #seasonal I was asked at a craft sale yesterday if I had any hot water bottle covers. So today I went out and sourced some and now have to come up with a pattern to make one. Brilliant idea thanks to a lovely customer. 😊

Day 14 of #fallingformakers and the theme is #packaging most of my items have so far been craft stall sales so packaging is a bit new to me. However, the spa set I’m posting out this week is packaged in recycled, environmentally conscious materials and I’m happy with how it looks. Now to order bigger boxes πŸ“¦ for the larger items I sell!
