Ok, I did lots of research lately on how best to take photos of my jewelry. Amazingly, everything said not to photograph it, but to SCAN it. I tried it today and was amazed. You can get in to make a single bead the size of your screen and have every detail in sharp focus. I created screen size pictures and thumbnails showing details of most of the pieces, and hope to have everything up replacing my current pictures soon. I'm so excited!!!

On a related note, I sent out the notarized paperwork today, so it should be official soon. I am now the sole proprietor of 'BeaDistinct Jewelry'. YaYaYaY!!!! I have an 'assumed name' (DBA) and my state tax ID is on the way. I also registered beadistinct.com and beadistinctjewelry.com, so when I get the web site up and going that will go there.

I don't think I mentioned the greatest timing I've run into...ever. The class I just started last week is eBusiness. The listed assignment for the learning teams was for them to choose three eBusiness web sites to evaluate. He gave an alternative that they teams could choose a business and create a full eBusiness plan for it - more work, but more experience and a better understanding of things. I jumped on it and asked him if he minded me recruiting people to help build an eBusiness plan for my company. That's what we're doing. In five weeks, I should have a professional eBusiness plan.


Now, for something that TOTALLY doesn't matter. I watched the new 'Queer eye for the Straight Girl'. Alright, could they have found a more pixie-ish lipstick lesbian to be on the show? Maybe if she had long, poofy blonde hair. She's cute. They have slanted this show for the intended audience - women. The lesbian is 'straight friendly' (very much not butch) and girly, and they bring in these buff guys to help move furniture and work on the home - and they focus on their bodies and go SLOW MOTION! Umm, could you be just a little more annoying? It's like they think women are cats, so they're showing pictures of mice, birds and bouncing balls of yarn.

I've also come to the conclusion that there really aren't that many asmathics in the world. They are just people who are looking for the Albuterol. DEAR GOD! Alright, I have bronchitis and a touch of pneumonia right now. I'm feeling lots better than yesterday, which was better than the day before. I went to the doctor yesterday and she gave me lots of meds to take, one of which was an Albuterol inhaler. You inhale and hold it as long as you can, and you can feel your lungs expanding (that's what it feels like to me). A few minutes later, you get this jolt of shaky energy that lasts for a good 15-30 minutes. I can't sit still, even though I'm sick. Does it affect everyone this way? Maybe the energy is in my mind because for 30 minutes or so I can actually breathe well? *laugh*

Off to design some earrings for the night, and play around with some metal-work I want to experiment with.

Albuterol... yum!

OK, so congrats on the business! Are you going to ship overseas? Can I use paypal? (Not that i have it at the moment but hope to before Xmas).

I will ship anywhere, the shipping charge just might be a bit more for overseas :) I just charge whatever the flat shipping charge is that the shipping company charges, no more.

I'll let you know when I get the new photos of designs up, and I will be accepting PayPal - I've already got that part set up.

Thanks for the well-wishes!!!

Can you tell I'm planning to use your site to buy gifts for the ladies in my life?

Hey - I have no problem with that :)

Absolutely wonderful! Congrat's on the formalization of your business. How much time with you need to make the necklace that I spoke with you about in December? (20", blue and gold, etc)
I'll be sending you a check for it later this month.

A couple of days to make it and get it boxed. Then whatever time it takes to ship it to you. Email me when you are ready to send the check and I'll give you the mailing address, or you can use PayPal which is also set up.

My shipping for Paul was about $7 for 2-3 day UPS, so yours should be about the same.
