Day one...

Well this is my first attempt at a blog. To be honest I have been spending a lot of time online lately working on my jewelry store, and so many people mentioned blogs to me that I have decided to give it a whirl. I don't promise any deep revelations, and certainly nothing quotable. Basically, I am starting in on a whole new part of my life and I want to write about it, even if I am the only reader. I wrote a lot as a teenager, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

First off, I have recently started selling my handmade jewelry online under the name "Simply Raevyn". Mostly I have been working on brick stitch, long, hand beaded earrings. I really want to learn some new patterns and techniques. I have also become quite fond of making chandelier earrings with crystals. I just ordered quite a lot of crystals from ebay. I can't wait to get them and start working on the new earrings!

For the past two months I have been selling on ebay. Today I found the etsy site, and started there. I sell on both sites with the name raevyn77 and Simply Raevyn. So far, sales have been okay. I must admit I have sold a lot more then I thought I would have. Of course, this makes me hungry for more. So I am striking out to promote more, and Paul and I will set up our own store site this weekend.

This first entry will be short. It's late, and I am pretty tired. Plus I have been sitting in this chair all day, working on promotion.
