Springing into Spring, Marching into March…

….I could do this all day……. but I won’t…. You’re welcome. 😛

It’s March already! Yikes! This year is already flying! phew!

I’ve been busy… [SUPER busy] making new jewelry, filling custom orders, promoting, photographing, and planning 3 parties- wait, no 4 parties; my son’s 3rd birthday is coming up and we’re having a family gathering that will be dinosaur themed (of course, what else?!).

This coming Sunday March 11th, I am hosting a grand ‘ol party at LiSalon. It’s an open house jewelry and wine accessory party. If you happen to live in the Ithaca, New York area, please be sure to stop in between 1:00 and 4:00pm. LiSalon is located at 412 East Upland Road in Community Corners.  If you’re one of the first 25 guests to sign in you’ll receive a gift bag jam-packed with HCBH jewelry and wine accessories, as well as some samples from the gals at the salon to keep your hair look fabulous!

If you don’t live in the Ithaca area, or you simply can’t make it- no worries! I’m having an online Jewelry party starting March 22 (Happy Birthday, Grandma) and this will last for a couple of weeks so that all of you have a chance to get your hands on all your favorite goodies. I’ll post all of the information in my next post.

April 22nd is a ways away, but that’s the day I’ll be hosting yet another Spring Jewelry and Wine Accessory party at my apartment. If you live in the Canandaigua area and are interested in attending this party please feel free to email me with your mailing address. I will mail you an official invitation. This will be a more formal party, and will not be open to the public, but it’s still a party I’m busy thinking about.

**RIGHT NOW** I have a Suprise SOA Sale going on. If you purchase a Sons of Anarchy Inspired Jewelry piece, your entire order will be 10% less when you apply this shop coupon code at checkout: SUPRISESOA10. So take advantage of this sale while it lasts, which will only be a few more days.

It’s almost day light savings time again! Woohoo!!! Enjoy, everyone. ❤

So about that writing gig….

Wow- I haven’t written in a long time! Sorry about that, folks- been sort of busy doing things that I can write about, I suppose.

I have been busy. When I look back at the last month or so.. holy cow! Not only has my jewelry business doubled in revenue, but I’ve found new goodies to make that I actually ENJOY making ( ie. wine charms, more simple necklaces) and using materials I didn’t think I would enjoy using ( ie. Swarovski crystals and pearls, sea glass).

I had my first jewelry party in May, and boy was it a success! Thank you to everyone who came to my party! Whether you purchased any jewelry or not, you being here and giving me advise meant a lot! BTW, if you’re interested in hosting a Handcrafted by Heather Jewelry party, there’s lots of benefits, discounts, and FREE jewelry to be had, so contact me if this sounds lovely to you 🙂

I’ve been getting more orders weekly- from Etsy, from personal custom orders, and at LiSalon. I am so pleased with how this is all going. It’s taken some time- less than I thought- and I pray daily it keeps up. This is surely something to thank God for. He’s blessed me with wisdom, talent, and I’ve become more paitent. All in all, this business venture- so far- has been successful.

Starting Tuesday I’ll be helping my girlfriend, and mentour, at her home so she can also continue to be successful with her own jewelry business, Loudee’s. I get to go to her home once or twice a week and play her kiddos! The best part is that I’ll be able to bring my little guy and daughter too! All 4 of the little angels are going to have a blast! I can’t wait to start!

Tomorrow is another busy day for me- I have pictures to take, listings to post on Etsy, an article to write about another amazing jewelry artist I’ve met, and pack our bags for our busy and exciting weekend. June 19th is my 26th birthday, and fathers day! It may seem strange to some, but my best birthdays are when they fall on fathers day. I get to spend time with my daddy, and we spoil each other because it’s HIS babies birthday, and it’s MY dad’s day. 🙂 So fun!

Happy fathers day to all you loving, devoted, hardworking daddies out there! Esp. my own hubby… wuv you.
