I'm a workaholic. I work from 8 am until 7pm and then I'm back at it for an hour or two before I go to bed. I try to stop. When I'm not working, I'm thinking about working. When I'm not making stuff, I'm marketing stuff, I'm researching, I'm sketching and planning. I wish I could just turn it off at 3pm when my girls got home. I hang out for about an hour, do the homework thing and chat about our day and then they go off to play and I'm back to my studio. I'm not always so bad, but I have a bead show in 2 weeks, orders to fill and a mortgage to pay. It can keep a girl hopping.
So today, I developed a brochure, printed it and made samples to send out to Bead Stores that are art bead friendly. I've also updated my website with a spiffy new homepage.
I need your help...do you have a lead for me? A local bead store that carries artist made beads? If you do, please leave a link to their website in the comments section. If more than 5 people leave a link, I'll draw a name for a free bead.
