Everyone keeps asking me if I'm going to sell this year. Everyone thinks I should sell this year. Except my shrink, who had to listen to my angst last year and is all, "Just don't do it."
Here's the problem: I haven't made much jewelry (other than the occasional personal item for myself that I don't want to get rid of) in the last 2 years. I have very old stock that didn't sell back in the day that I could dig up, but who cared back then and who cares now?
I also don't have much time to make anything beforehand either. This weekend has mostly cleared out schedule-wise (I have one event Saturday night and the meeting for selling Friday night, but that's it) so I could try to do stuff then, but otherwise, not a lot.
On a rare night when I had some free time, I restrung and changed up an old necklace I wasn't that attached to. And...it really wasn't fun to do. I feel like I have lost my beading mojo. Jewelry is a lot easier to sell than yarn things (less time, can charge less- yarn sales are not at all practical), sells better than ceramics or yarn things as far as I can tell. It's really the only option. I've tried making yarn jewelry here and there (which I still haven't uploaded, I need like a year to Photoshop all the photos on the camera now) and it's just not that impressive to noobs.
But...it's not fun to make jewelry for sale any more. And I don't wanna.
Sigh. I don't know what to do.
