I am such a project manager at heart. I love planning and I’m pretty good at it. But, there comes a point in the process when I get all in my head and I start wondering if I’m going to be able to pull it off. This usually happens right towards the end when there’s still a bit of time, and I think maybe I can cram a couple more things onto my to-do list.

That’s where I’m at right now. So close to the finish, and the stress level is high. This is about the time I start wondering what the hell I was thinking in the first place. Especially right now. It’s starting to sink in that I am going to have to hand my jewelry over to someone who is a respected and kind of famous jewelry maker for her critique. What the hell was I thinking?



I’ll get over it. I really like my jewelry, and so do a bunch of other people, so, I’m thinking she probably won’t laugh at me or roll her eyes. I’m sure she won’t. She seems like a very nice person.


Today, I worked on the front page of my website and I think it’s almost just the way I want it, at least for now. I also made some packaging for the new earrings in my shop. I’ve never made earrings before, so I had to figure out the best way to package them. It’s a work in progress.


Three more days til I fly to San Francisco for my latest adventure. I hope you will join the live broadcast of Megan Auman’s CreativeLive course, How to Make a Living Selling What You Make, Monday, July 13!
