Multiple shops

So, I have decided that I'm going to join as many online shops as I can! So far, I am on Folksy, Zibbet, WOW and MISI... and I'm going to be joining up with Etsy, eHive, UKHandmade and any others I can find! I figure that the more places I join, the more likely it is that I'll sell my work! Does anyone else do this? I know it's going to be even more work, and it's already hard to keep up with all the online sites I'm a member of, but if I really knuckle down and keep organized, then hopefully it'll work out well! I know I'm pretty bad at keeping this up to date, but from now on, I'm going to be really good and make sure I post on here at least once a day! So keep watching, things are going to get more interesting, I promise!! Let me know what you think... C. x

New makes...

Well, I have finally gotten started with actually making stuff again! It has been a really long time since I did anything creative, everything seems to have been on the computer, trying to raise awareness of GlitterRT. Like setting up this blog, so much work to do on the Facebook fanpage, and listing lots of things on the Folksy shop... there's just so much to do and only so many hours in the day! I really need to send in some more listing to, but it's a bit more of a hassle to do that, so it has gone on the back burner...

But, it is really nice to be making things again... my new things from Precious Sparkle Beads arrived yesterday! Woo Hoo, they are absolutely gorgeous! Smaller than I thought they wold be, but still lovely! I might even have a go at doing something with them in a minute!

Something I find, is that the nicest beads and materials I have, I am not using, because they are so nice, I want to make sure I do them justice, and just recently I have been having a bit of Beader's Block! I've had some really beautiful purple Agate beads, massive donuts and marquise shaped stones, for quite a while, and I really want to use them, but I just can't think of a really beautiful design to put them in. Aaaahhhh!!!

I did make some really gorgeous Sterling silver ear wires last night, so am going to see what lovely things I have to pair them with!

Anyway, I'm going to go and see what I can come up with now... wish me luck!

New listing!

Here is the newest listing in my Folksy shop, please go check it out! And buy it!!! C. xxx

Newbie Blogger!

Well, this is my first time ever to be a blogger! So, welcome to my page and please bear with me whilst I get used to and learn how to get going with this thing!

I am hoping to do many things on here, like create an 'Artist of the week' storyline and obviously keep people up to date with what is going on with GlitterRT... ie sales, new work, photos, and just everyday life...

To start with, it is early in the morning, well early for me! Fact is, I only went to bed at about 6.30 this morning and didn't manage to get even a wink of sleep, so got up again at 8.00am! This is pretty usual for me! I tend to do my best work during the early hours, when there is no one else around and there are no distractions!

Last night, I did a lot of promo work online, like a lot of Link Love, posting things up on the Folksy forum and, for the first time in a long time, I even managed to make a couple of things!! 2 pairs of earrings!! Wowser! They were both for people, one for my 300 fans competition winner and the other for a commission. I will post photos up asap!

I think the Postie has just arrived! How exciting! I'm expecting an order of Semi-Precious stones today, so off I go to greet him with open arms!!!

Will post again soon! C. xxx
