So I started an etsy page for my jewelry.  I wonder if I will have better luck with it. My own domain expires in December and I have seriously thought about giving up jewelry and beading. I’ve been doing more beading for my own pleasure this year than selling.  I had hoped to raise more money for American Cancer Society this year (last year it was $100). But - I’m not even close and it’s the end of October.

I wonder if I am good enough? What do I need to improve / change / do different?

I use Swarovski crystals because they are beautiful - should I use acrylic/plastic because they are less expensive?  

I don’t know… Would love some advice / comments from the outside world.

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground in to a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm andhappy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story:

(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.

(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.

(3) And when you’re in deep shit, it’s smart to keep your mouth shut!

Great Story!

August 13, 1860:  Sharpshooter Annie Oakley Born
On this day in 1860, American exhibition shooter Annie Oakley was born in Ohio.  Annie’s impeccable aim captured the attention of major figures worldwide, such as Queen Victoria of England and King Umberto I of Italy, for whom she performed while in Europe.
One of Annie’s most famous tricks was splitting a playing card with a .22 caliber rifle, edge-on, and putting several more holes in it before it could touch the ground at 90 feet away.
