Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Last weeks winner is Gail W.. Congratulations you've one of Cindy's Double Dips in Ivory. Send Cindy an e-mail and she will get it right out to you.
Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2010? I always like January for lots of reasons, first of all it's my slow time of the year for business. This means I actually have time to experiment and try all those projects I have been wanting to get to all year. Second, It's time to clean out and third, we get to plan out a new year.
In January, I tweak my jewelry line. I like to take my best sellers, get rid of my least popular items, and then design some new work. The Buyers Market of American Craft is next month. I will be there wholesaling my jewelry. I have already shipped my booth display off to the Market and now it's time to get all the jewelry finished up.
Another thing I do in January is have a big studio clean out. Things can pile up in here over the year and especially the holidays. I am ordering supplies for my jewelry and my bead mixes. When I clean up I can easily figure out what I need to order. As a result of my big cleaning spree I have a annual sale. It's call the Jangles Studio Clean Out Sale and it's going now.
Lastly, I am working on new beads for Valentines day. You guys here at the Art Bead Scene are getting a sneak peek. I am going to put them up in the Etsy shop and blog about them next week, none of the Jangles Blog readers have seen these yet.
My question for the week is this, What is something new you would like to try in 2010?
