Yesterday I started working on a revision of my website. I haven’t been happy with how my catalog was displaying, so I am using a new theme. So far, I am pleased with it, but let me know what you think and if you have suggestions for me.
This week is hectic for me as I only have one day where I don’t have any appointments, and that day is tomorrow. I plan to spend some decent time in the studio tomorrow, coming up with a few new ideas, and working on new pieces.
Hello! I realize that I have been gone from my studio for a while now, but my absence could not be avoided. Soon after my last post in February, I hurt my back. I have had issues with my sciatic nerve in the past, but that was years ago, so it was quite a surprise when it flared up after so long. About two weeks after the initial pain started, my back was better, thanks to a lot of rest and avoiding sitting in my studio chair where I have to sit up straight. Once my back was better, I worked on a few custom orders that I needed to get done and shipped out.
A few days later, I had a follow-up appointment with my surgeon, and it was determined that I needed surgery to fix an issue from a surgery I had back in November 2019. For those who have not noticed the links connecting you to my other blog, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in late February 2019. Two weeks ago today, I had my 5th surgery, and I am doing well! I am excited to see my surgeon again next week to remove any stubborn steri-strips that are still hanging on to my surgery site.
Today I finally felt well enough to get back into my studio and design a few pieces. It felt so good to be able to sit for a few hours and do what I love! I hope to work on a few more pieces tomorrow, and then I will list them in my online shop.
I just finished listing all of the jewelry I made earlier this week in my mmillsdesigns Shop!
This week I mainly worked on new pieces for Valentine’s Day. Since we are still a little over a week away from the holiday all about love, I will work on a few more pieces tomorrow and get them listed over the weekend or, at the latest, on Monday.
I was hoping to have more than eight new pieces to list in my shop, but unfortunately, my back decided to remind me this week that I often do more than I should. I was shocked because literally, out of nowhere on Sunday, my sciatic nerve flared up. So I have been trying to rest so my back will heal and sit in my studio and do what I love, designing and creating handmade jewelry.
Hello! I didn’t have an update for last week due to a few things. It was an emotional week for me, so it was hard to concentrate on making new jewelry. Instead, I focused on fine-tuning my new organizational system in my studio and ordering a few new items I needed to create a new type of jewelry that I will be designing next week. I am so excited to present a different kind of jewelry to you, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!
I will have another update, listings in my shop, and photos of some of my new items towards the end of next week, so be on the lookout!
Please note that next week I will be working on new items for Valentine’s Day in particular, so if you have any custom requests, please let me know by either emailing me at email@example.com or going to my Contact Me page on this website.
In the last few months, I have been recovering from surgery, working on a new product line for my shop, and busy with custom orders. My shop will be closed from December 18th until January 5th. If you want to purchase something from my shop, you can either go ahead and make your purchase now, understanding that your order will not be shipped out until January 5th or 6th, or you can wait until I return. If you would like to place a custom order, please email me while I am out at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will contact you when I return.
Over the last few weeks, I have been working on new jewelry designs. I have completely reorganized my studio and stocked up on a few new supplies so that when I return after the holidays, I will be ready to start rolling out my new jewelry for 2021! I will also be continuing to work on the new product line, which I expect to have ready for sale by early Spring, and on listing items in the Destash Boutique category in my shop.
I will be posting pictures of a few of the custom orders I have completed once my customers have received their orders and have gifted them to their loved ones….I don’t want to spoil the surprise! 😁
Please stay tuned for updates on everything going on in the coming months with mmillsdesigns!
Welcome! I will update my progress on new items as well as new listings in my shop in my blog, so watch for updates in the coming weeks and months.
My website is finally fully functional and my shop is open! I only have the handmade jewelry section of my shop open at this time. I will be working on the other two sections in the coming weeks, my Destash Boutique and my Original Photography.
For those of you who not familiar with the term Destash, it is referring to the sale of crafting supplies. I have quite a few extra beads and supplies that I will be selling at a reasonable price in the coming months. I will have some individual items as well as a few bulk purchases available.
I will be working on new items for the jewelry section of my shop in the coming weeks and again, I will post updates in my blog.
