BTW: Productive

I've been crazy-productive today and am so proud of it. The craft room even got picked up. I just couldn't take it anymore. There's still a few spots that need some attention, but I can actually walk through the room right now. I told you. . .CRAZY!

I even got some other tasks accomplished

I sorted and stacked my jewelry magazines, pulling out my most recent copies (see above). From there, I proceeded to gather, record, and file information on submitting to each of them. I guess after jumping yesterday's hurdle, I'm ready for more. What happened yesterday you ask. Well. . . yesterday I sent in two pairs of earrings and two bracelets for consideration in one of those magazines. I'm totally not expecting to get in my first try, but wouldn't that be awesome?!

After marking my calendar of other magazine deadlines, I started on a custom order for a friend.

She asked for green. . .and green is what she's getting!

I also took the time this morning to list these earrings.
Mini Owl Earrings

And now I've gotten a blog post written. BAM! It's just mind-boggling how much I can get done in a day when I really try. Wait until tomorrow, I'll probably be singing a different song then. That's always the way isn't it?


  1. Those owl earrings are adorable. i was super productive yesterday. then

  2. Yeah for being productive. Good luck with the submissions!

  3. Good for you for taking the leap into magazine submissions -- can't wait to see your work on the magazine racks!

  4. Good for you on being productive today. Mine started out badly with me staying in my PJ's until around 10:00 am. But after lunch I got a lot of stuff done.

    Those owl earrings are adorable!!!

    Must. Remember. To. Submit. Pieces. To Magazines.!!! Why can't I get a handle on this? It seems easy enough--create, photograph, email. Ughhhh

  5. Hi Hope,
    Congratulations on all that you accomplished today! Those are the cutest little owl earrings.

  6. BAM! Look at you go! I still need to finish my entry. Tick tock. Sigh

  7. You are supercharged! i think we are all eagerly awaiting word about the submissions! (did that sound as bad to you as it did to me?!) i needed to clean and de-clutter my brand new workspace that i swore i would keep organized...all i managed to do was empty the trash. and all the trash was was cut up thread from my botched attempts at weaving new jewelry.

  8. Heather- Thank you so much! I do appreciate it.

    Cynthia- Ha! Yeah, we'll see how today goes. I'm heading out to visit my grandmother in a bit so very little will get done around the house. I hope you're knocking it out though!!

  9. Nicely done...BAM is right! I hope a little of your energy rubs off on my productivity for the weekend :)

  10. Love the little owl earrings, they are just too adorable! I hope your entries get accepted - that's always so cool when that happens!!

  11. Fun BTW :) Good luck with submissions. Hope you're published!


  12. Shel- Thank you. Those owl earrings have actually already sold. I was pleasantly surprised how fast they went. Now I just wait to hear back from the magazine. It will probably be at least another month to hear from them from what I've been told. I hate waiting. Right now I'm just trying to forget about it. ;)


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
